Lawn on D celebrates flannel, fitness and fun

It may be after Labor Day, but summer isn’t over at the Lawn on D. The Lawn is rolling out the family fun for weeks to come. We’re just dressing a little warmer these days, and if you dig that old flannel shirt out of your closet, you can even help the Lawn set a world rec­ord on “Flannel Friday.”

Sponsored by Harpoon Brewery — which has brought back its fall-themed ale called Flannel Friday — the Lawn will award prizes for the best and most creative flannel getups (including tickets to Harpoon’s Octoberfest, where you can try the new beer if you’re old enough).

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”

Launch of Seaport ferry service delayed to 2019

The employer-funded ferry service connecting North Station with the Seaport District is now expected to launch early next year, not this fall as previously anticipated.

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority proposed the ferry service last year in an effort to avoid traffic that builds up between North Station and the Seaport during rush hour. The MCCA would oversee the service, but it would be funded by major businesses in the Seaport, whose employees would be able to take the ferry rather than the corporate-sponsored bus shuttles now used.
