Earth Week at AFH - Unveiling and Honoring and Celebrating - and You are Invited!

This was a challenging week for Boston ...but a reminder that our city and our citizens are strong and resilient!  Following are some photos of AFH rebounding: celebrating Earth Week at Massport and preparing to present our First EpiCenter Awards for leadership in Climate Action at the 8th annual Greatest Party on Earth on April 27 at the EpiCenter!

Earth Week will conclude with the Greatest Party On Earth this Saturday April 27 at the EpiCenter starting with a Benefactor Reception and the presentation of the first EpiCenter Awards honoring Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Pat Brandes, Executive Director of the Barr Foundation for their leadership in climate action.  From there it is on to The Greatest Party!
