2021 Mayor's Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series announced

Mayor Kim Janey and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will host the 2021 Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series, in collaboration with Dunkin’, in local parks citywide from July 30 to August 27.

“I look forward to meeting residents one-on-one to discuss issues that interest them,” said Mayor Janey. “The Neighborhood Coffee Hours bring neighbors together to connect with one another and get to know a variety of the City of Boston officials who serve our communities. Come by for a beautiful morning in your local park with iced coffee, treats, fresh fruit, and flowers.”

Mayor Janey’s Neighborhood Coffee Hours are a unique opportunity to speak directly with the Mayor and staff from City departments about open space and other features in their neighborhoods. Through these discussions, and a suggestion box at each site, Mayor Janey looks forward to hearing how the City of Boston can improve upon local parks, public areas, and city services.

Participants will enjoy Dunkin' Iced Coffee and assorted MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats provided by Dunkin’. Fresh fruit will be provided by Star Market. In addition, each family in attendance will receive a free flowering plant provided by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, while supplies last. Residents at the event will also be eligible to win a raffle prize from Dunkin’, including Dunkin' swag and gift cards.
