The Beacon Hill Civic Association welcomes you. This site serves Boston’s historic Beacon Hill neighborhood by providing resources for daily living on Beacon Hill, current calendars of meetings and social events on Beacon Hill, opportunities to volunteer with the Beacon Hill Civic Association, and information for membership in the Beacon Hill Civic Association.
The Beacon Hill Civic Association will host its 92nd Annual Meeting on Monday, May 19, 2014 at The Union Club of Boston, Eight Park Street at Six O'Clock in the evening.
Stephanie Schorow will be our keynote speaker, presenting “Drinking Boston: History in a Cocktail Glass,” covering Boston's drinking history, beginning in the Colonial period and continuing through Prohibition and into Boston's craft cocktail scene. Schorow is the author of six books on Boston, including Drinking Boston: A History of the City and its Spirits, as well as books on the Boston Harbor Islands, Boston’s fire history, and the infamous Brink’s robbery. Her works take a grassroots, people’s history view of the city she has lived and worked in since 1989. For more information, please visit her website at www.stephanieschorow.com.
Also on the Annual Meeting agenda is the election of 23 residents to serve as members and officers of the BHCA board of directors, and the presentation of the 18th annual Beacon Award. This award is presented to an individual or group deserving of particular recognition for their significant and sustained contribution to the Beacon Hill community.
The doors will open at 5:30 pm and guests are encouraged to allow extra time to check in so that the meeting can start promptly at 6 pm.
