Letter to the Editor: Neither rain, nor snow, nor wind, nor cold will keep Save the Harbor from splashing on March 11
As you know it was a wet and windy weekend on and around Boston Harbor.
With more wild weather on the way, we wanted you to know that no matter what the weather, we expect hundreds of costumed Shamrock Splashers to join us this Sunday, March 11th, at 11:00AM for the 10th Annual Harpoon Shamrock Splash at the BCYF Curley Community Center in South Boston.
All of us at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay splash to raise money to support free events and programs on the region’s public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket that “share the harbor” with the nearly 2 million people who live within a short ride or drive to the beach. Last year we raised more than $50,000 to support 93 free events including concerts, beach festivals, sand sculpting competitions, kid’s programs and circus performances in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull. You can register or donate at www.shamrocksplash.org.
You can find out more about the Harpoon Shamrock Splash and the free events and programs we supported in 2017 on our Better Beaches Program blog, Sea, Sand & Sky, at http://blog.savetheharbor.org/2018/01/2018-harpoon-shamrock-splash.html
We hope that you will be able to join us on the beach to cover the Harpoon Shamrock Splash this year. It is a great event for a great cause. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me anytime on my cell at 617-293-6243.
See you on the beach!
P.S. Please note that this year we are splashing promptly at 11:00 AM to catch the tide!
