Curtis Hall attracted a full house on Nov. 17 to celebrate the Sesquicentennial as the Heart of the JP Community. Families, teens and seniors joined in the celebration, which included arts and crafts activities, face painting, a balloon contortionist, birthday card creations, music and refreshments. Mayor Walsh joined the festivities as the community dedicated the Senior Center to Olga Dummott, Curtis Hall’s longtime Senior Center Coordinator. Her extended family was present for the ceremony. Entertainment included Tiny Tots, The Black Flag Dance Group and the JP Jubilee singers. The program captured the JPCC motto: Education * Recreation * Information * Across the Generations!
Gifts to help celebrate Curtis Hall’s 150th birthday in the form of canned goods and toiletries will be accepted through Nov. 28. In this season of giving, the Jamaica Plain Community Centers Board is grateful to have been able to have the neighborhood join with us in celebrating 150 years of service to the community.
