The Future of MyDorchester | June 2

We’re hoping to find out how we can continue to shape the website/program to best serve the neighborhood - whether that’s changing how the site is managed, what is on the site, whether to have a website at all, who we should be listening to and working with.

When: June 2nd, from 6:30pm-8:00pm

The Force will be strong at Franklin Park Zoo | May 28

There’s no need to travel to a galaxy far, far away to get into the Star Wars spirit – The Force will be strong at Franklin Park Zoo.  When members of the New England Garrison and Alderaan Base dressed as characters from the films roam the zoo! The costumed characters are local members of the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion; groups of Star Wars fans who, with the use of their movie-quality costumes, contribute to the local community through charity and volunteer work.

Guests are encouraged to wear their own Star Wars attire, take photos with the costumed characters and learn about how animal adaptations and behaviors in our galaxy relate to the creatures from the films through scavenger hunts and other activities. The animals will also join in on the fun as they enjoy treats and special Star Wars themed enrichment items throughout the day.
