South Boston Citizens Association (SBCA) President Tom McGrath and the Executive Board are pleased to announce that this Saturday, March 2nd, 2024, at the Kick-off Breakfast, The Henry Knox Award Presentation will take place at the Seapoint Restaurant, 367 East 8th Street, at 10am

Family, friends, and neighbors are respectfully invited to attend this wonderful event. A $15 donation is requested at the door to help offset costs. This year’s event will once again feature the great music of Bob Fowkes and Curragh’s Fancy and will be catered once again by Deja Brew.

Once again, the event chairman will be South Boston’s State representative, David Biele, who continues to lead the fight to preserve the historical importance of Evacuation Day while serving in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

“As president of the Association, it is an honor for me to work with Dave to kick off the festivities. Dave’s commitment and involvement with the SBCA and our community has been a tremendous asset to me and the Executive Board,” said McGrath.

The awards are presented to everyday volunteers in the community who seek no recognition and who are considered “Unsung Heroes.”  This kicks off the month-long celebration for one of the most important events in American history.

This year’s recipients are BPD Officer Billy Connor, Jay Arthur, Shannon Maloney, Anne Marie Adduci and Billy Allen.

Tom McGrath, President of the SBCA, said, “It is an honor to recognize these individuals who dedicate their time and energy to the South Boston Community. I hope the community will join me and others on Saturday, March 2nd, to honor these men and women.”

Tickets are available at the door for a $15 donation. Doors open at 9:30 AM.
