We’re looking forward to another exciting day in Dorchester Park on Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015. Last year’s event was a memorable time for all who went. Plans are now coming together for The Third Annual Classic Car Show and Family Fun Day. As they develop over the next few weeks, the details will be posted on this site as well as the Dorchester Park Facebook Page, and also on the Lower Mills Merchants Association website and the LMMA Facebook page. The set up will be very similar to last year. The Antique and Classic Car show goes from 10 AM until 2 PM in the smaller ball field at the Adams Street entrance to the park. The Family Fun Day goes from 12 PM to 4 PM on the larger ball field in the upper park. Walk up the path from the cars to the back of the park to enjoy food trucks, entertainment, music, horse-drawn carriage rides, facilities, face painting, balloons, puppets and games for the kids. So circle the date on your calendars for what promises to be a great day. Spread the word and bring your friends for an exciting day of fun for all.
Please mark your calendars.
With the great turnout last year, another exciting day in Dorchester Park is being planned. As before, while the two events can be enjoyed by all, the cars will be on display from 10 AM until 2 PM, and the fun and games run from Noon until 4 PM. Food will be available.
For those interested in any type of sponsorship for the event, there are three levels for donations:
Blue Ribbon -$500: Your logo is printed on the banners placed around the area, your name is listed as a sponsor on the sponsor board, your website’s link will be linked on the Dot Park web site for a year, and you will receive a table at the event if you need and request one.

Please follow this website and Dot Park’s Facebook page for future developments and get ready for a great day.
It’s hard to believe that our enormous amount of snow is actually melting and there will be such a thing known as warm weather arriving soon. Cabin fever will become just a bad memory as we start to enjoy all the fun of outside activities.
Snow and or no snow, the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Dorchester Park will be taking place on April 4, 2015 at 10:00 AM at the Tennis Courts, so please dress appropriately. RTN Credit Union will set up a photo booth there at 9:00 AM. Volunteers are asked to be there at 8:00 AM. Anyone wishing to volunteer is invited and welcomed.
A park cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, March 28, and volunteers again are welcomed. Meet at 9:30 at the bottom of the Richview Street Stairs near the Lydia Smith bench.
Teens from Boston Cares are helping with a cleanup and planting on April 24, and their efforts are greatly appreciated by the Dorchester Park Association.
LETTER FROM SENATOR LINDA DORCENA FORRY
Dear Community Leader,
I would like to invite you to join me, Representative Dan Cullinane, and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans to a Public Safety Meeting to be held at St. Gregory’s Auditorium (corner of Richmond Street and Dorchester Avenue) this Monday, November 10 at 6:30pm. With the increase of violence in our neighborhoods, we have heard from various constituents about their concerns and want to provide a public community forum on safety. We ask that you share this information with other community members so that they may attend.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office at (617)722-1150 or Representative Cullinane’s office at (617)722-2006. Thank you for your attention to this important matter. We hope to see you this Monday.
All the best,
Linda Dorcena Forry
“Boston Blooms with Daffodils”, a citywide program offered by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, has just announced that it is providing 500 daffodil bulbs to be planted in Dorchester Park this fall.
Dorchester Park is looking for volunteers to help with this planting project. With plenty of bulbs to be placed in the ground, people should work best in teams of two – a digger and a planter. This can be a fun family event, where young ones can participate in the beautification of their neighborhood, and enjoy seeing their efforts rewarded with blooms every spring. These bulbs are available now and help is needed in getting them in the ground.
Anyone interested in helping to plant these bulbs should meet at 9:00 AM in Dot Park at (X:00 AM) on Saturday October 25th.
Everyone participating is encouraged to take pictures and e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
The buzz is all over town. On Sunday, September 7, 2014, The Second Annual Antique Car Show and Family Picnic was a smashing success. Organizers could not have been more delighted with the turn out, the events and music planned, the food offered, volunteers and, of course, our generous sponsors.
Dorchester Park, The Lower MIlls Merchants, organizers and planners wish to thank our generous sponsors who made this event possible.
