The Boston Harbor edge has been transformed from a place nobody would think of visiting to an exciting harbor walk visited by Bostonians and many from around the world. The major credit for this transformation and the driving force is their leader, VIVIAN LEE. Along with her drive to get abutters to provide rest rooms and share part of their waterfront, she has programs to enlighten the public about its history and heritage. These are accomplished by walking tours meetings and harbor boat trips. Thank you Vivian! Martin and Sallie Katz

Great job of keeping the areas clean and safe, leaders were out surveying the area even when Hurricane Sandy was in full swing. Hats off to all the people who make this a great organization!
