Southie Shoutout to Mona Connolly Casper who will be honored at the South Boston Citizens Association’s Jimmy Flaherty Kickoff Breakfast.  Mona has always lent a helping hand, volunteering her time to both South Boston Youth Hockey and the South Boston Irish American Society.  Learning from her mother, Mona understands what it means to be a strong, caring, and dedicated member of the community.   She is the busy, working mother of two active teenage boys (Thomas and Mac) but is always the first to offer help when needed.

Being one of the owners of the Seapoint Restaurant, she was the first to reach out to the South Boston Citizens Association, after the original hosts of the Kickoff Breakfast, The Cornerstone closed its doors.   “When the Cornerstone closed two years ago, Mona reached out to me immediately and offered the function hall to allow our organization to continue to host the event,” said Tom McGrath, President of the South Boston Citizens Association.  

Both Mona and her husband Tommy – who volunteers his time as a coach for South Boston Youth Hockey – are an important part of our neighborhood and make the fabric of South Boston a little bit stronger.   For her dedication and commitment to the neighborhood, Mona will receive the Henry Knox Award at the Kickoff Breakfast.  This award is given to those who are considered “unsung heroes.”  Way to go, Mona – you’ve done Southie proud!  Also being recognized is Bobby Linehan Betty Flaherty, and Oderra Jones.

You can kick off the St. Patrick’s Day season and see Mona receive her award at this local favorite event at the Seapoint Restaurant on Saturday, February 25th at 10am.  There will be food, live entertainment and the presentation of the Henry Knox Award!  $10 donation suggested!

    She didn’t “win” anything. She was awarded the Henry Knox Award from the SBCA along with 3 others, not 2. Maybe somebody from CIS should’ve paid the $10 and show up to the breakfast and honor ALL of those who were recognized.

      Sorry we missed Oderra. We’ve added Oderra Jones to the article.

      Also, we tried to email you directly to let you know that normally, we would have gone to the breakfast but we were at a hockey tournament with the South Boston Youth Hockey League – but I couldn’t send it because you used a fake email address. We will, however, support other citizen association events. Have a great day and keep reading! Next time you’d like to leave a mean spirited comment, be a grown up and don’t hide behind an fake email address.
