Boyle Street Community League Update

A Quick Holiday Update

Boyle Street Plaza has been very busy, as it has been all year, and I will have more to report in the February issue. In the meantime, if you are a resident of Boyle Street, don’t forget to get your free community league membership! On behalf of the Boyle Street Board and Staff, I want to wish all readers a memorable and joyous holiday season, and a prosperous 2018. Blessings to all of you!

Alf is the President of the Boyle Street Community League.
