Thank you to all who attended the Boston Strong BBQ last week. We had a wonderful time getting to know our Watertown neighbors, while eating delicious food and supporting a great cause. With your help, we were able to raise $350 for the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs. We were excited by the strong turnout – from students at the Harvard Business School to our next-door businesses at Air Graphics and Sasaki to those who simply saw the sign and flyers and decided to stop by. Thank you again for coming out to support a wonderful cause and share in the strength and pride of our city. We’re looking forward to more Watertown BBQs and community events over the summer.

In light of recent events, we want to bring our community of Watertown together and share in the strength and pride of our town. Next Friday, May 3rd, we will be hosting a BBQ to benefit the K-9 Comfort Dogs, who traveled from Chicago and Newtown, CT to be with us here in Boston.

The K-9 Comfort dogs are a bundle of furry, affectionate Golden Retrievers, trained to provide comfort and care to those affected by tragedy. They were stationed at First Lutheran Church on Berekeley St. after the bombings and went around to the hospitals to visit those affected. They also provided much comfort to one of our employees, who ran the Boston Marathon. As such, they are a cause very close to our hearts. So stop by, grab some food, meet your Watertown neighbors, and support a good cause. We are one Boston.

Last week, our home was invaded, our safety threatened. We’re still trying to process and heal, but we take comfort in knowing the strength and pride of this city, this place, this town.
We want to express our complete and sincere gratitude to the military personnel, Boston PD, and government agencies who spent countless, sleepless hours to ensure the safety of our residents and give our city peace of mind. For that we are extremely grateful. We also want to express our gratitude to the cities globally who showed their support for our city.
Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with those who lost their lives, are healing in the hospitals, and those grieving from these events. We’re not there yet, but we’re rebuilding, we’re healing, we’re finding our new set of normalcy. We could not be more proud of the heroic efforts of the police, military personnel and Bostonians alike, and to have the privilege to call this city home. We are Boston. We are Boston Strong.
