Because of Covid-19 the South Boston Senior Salute could not happen again this year. Knowing how important this event is to the seniors and the entire community, Plan B was executed with military precision to cook up some corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots, with cookies and give aways.
This was a huge undertaking which took place at Florian Hall. The food was packaged and bagged with St. Patrick’s Day art work from local children. Deliveries of 555 meals were fast and swift. The team also had food prepared for the National Guard who were also at Florian working the Covid Clinic and deliveries to the local firehouses. A special shout out and thank you to the Walsh, Butler, Cahill, Kelley families and remembering the wonderful work of Fr. McDonnell. Enough accolades can’t be given to the dedicated volunteers who care for our community. South Boston Citizen’s Association, you’re the best. A special recognition to Local 718 IAFF Boston Fire Fighters for providing space for this spreading of good cheer. A pot of gold can be as simple as a good meal to some.
