Coleman Nee Evacuation Day Parade Chief Marshall

The Executive Board of the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council (SBAWVC) has named South Boston Native Coleman Nee as the Chief Marshall of its 2023 Evacuation Day/St Patrick’s Day Parade to be held on March 19, 2023. The SBAWVC will honor Chief Marshall Nee at the Chief Marshall’s Banquet on March 11, 2023 A South Boston native and graduate of American University in Washington D.C., Coleman

has over 27 years of governmental, not-for-profit, and private-sector management experience. Nee is a veteran of the US Marine Corps and deployed to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during the Gulf War. He also serves as the National 2nd Jr Vice Commander for the Disabled American Veterans. Nee is a DAV life member and proud member of Chapter 3 in Boston.

Following the 1947 parade, Boston Mayor James Michael Curley himself granted authority to organize and conduct the St. Patrick’s Day-Evacuation Day Parade to the petitioner, South Boston Allied War Veterans Council (SBAWVC), an unincorporated association of individuals elected from various South Boston veteran’s groups. And with that, since 1948 the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day / Evacuation Day Parade has been veteran-led.

Polar Plunge Is Back (!)

For nearly 120 years since 1904, and likely well before that, the South Boston Polar Plunge has taken place. Yes, the Plunge has been relocated to M Street Beach because of the long-overdue reopening

of the renovated Curley Community Center. And also yes, it was necessary to cancel the Plunge after 2019, due to the pandemic. But four days ago, one of Southie’s longest standing traditions came back, all the way back!

Sports by the Numbers

Quite properly, the media across the nation have all joined together to express their sorrow and hopes for recovery and the future well-being of Damar Hamlin, the Buffalo Bills defenseman who suffered cardiac arrest Monday evening. We can only do likewise – Hamlin is still critical as we are writing this. If there is anything positive that results from this terrible event, it’s that quick action by the first responders from both the Bills and the Bengals appear to have saved Hamlin’s life. And fortunately, this kind of injury is rare – there has been only one in sports since 2000 that we know of. The rest of Monday night’s game was canceled, of course, but we understand the Bills/Patriots game is still on for this

coming Sunday at 1 p.m. in Buffalo.

There has been at least one write-up about how the Pats might preserve their playoff hopes, even if Sunday’s Game #17 does not go well. We won’t get into that, but here are a few numbers that tell a story about this year’s playoff hopes: The Pats are currently at a W-L record of 8-8, as are Jacksonville, Miami, and Pittsburgh in the AFC. Even at just 8-8, Jacksonville is first in their AFC South Division. And Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay team has clinched their NFC South Division, also with a record of 8-8. Wouldn’t it be a travesty if (somehow) one of the presently 8-8 Florida teams went on to win the 2023 Super Bowl? Figures don’t lie. Or do they?

Oh well, it has been conjectured that Brady might be on his way to the Raiders, perhaps along with Rob the

Gronk – right back into the AFC, in other words. However, local residents can console themselves by remembering that these days, Boston is Champion City, after a dozen pro championships so far in this 21st Century, six of them with Tom Brady as the New England Patriots quarterback.

The bad news: The Celtics have blown the first two games of their current road trip. In Tuesday’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder (a bottom-of-the-barrel, 16-21 W-L team), the Green let them score 150 (!) points – a new Thunder record. And the Thunder played without top scoring Gilgeous-Alexander. These numbers are graphic proof that Celtics inconsistency is still a problem. By a slim margin, they still have the best record in the NBA, but are essentially tied with the Brooklyn Nets at 12

losses each. Six other teams in the NBA have lost only 13 or 14 games, so they will threaten the Celts as the NBA season advances to its halfway point this month. These numbers aren’t lying. Not enough can be said about the performance numbers of the Boston Bruins so far this season. At 62 points, they are the first team to break into the 60s. Only four other NHL teams are even as far as the mid-50s. And what’s more striking, at a Goals For (GF) of 140 versus Goals Against (GA) of 83, the Bruins have amassed a GF-GA differential of 57 goals! They can really defend, too – at 83 Goals Against, they have the lowest GA number in the entire NHL. The next best defensive teams are the Winnipeg Jets and New Jersey Devils, at 97 GA each.

Way to go! Happy New Year – Sports Boston lives!

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston Names Joshua Davis Executive Director of the Edgerley Family

Club for 18 impactful years before moving on to a new opportunity.

Davis will use his wealth of experience and relationships to build upon the South Boston Club’s foundation in providing enriching resources, facilities and opportunities to South Boston’s young people and families.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB) has named Joshua Davis as the new executive director of the Edgerley Family South Boston Club after over two decades with the organization. Davis replaces Harry Duvall, who was involved with the

“We’re thrilled to have such a deserving member of our family move into the executive director role to lead the South Boston Club. Josh will continue to lead our South Boston’s youth in an even more prominent role, and further promote our mission of providing new opportunities to invest in our community’s urban talent pipeline,” said Nicholas President and CEO, Robert Lewis, Jr. “Josh understands the goals of the organization, has established relationships with the community and can motivate both the staff and youth.”

Going on his third decade with the organization, Davis enters his new role with a vast array of knowledge, both internally and externally, through his relationships with numerous BGCB committees and stakeholders. Davis

has served many positions within the BGCB organization since 2001 as executive director of operations, Club director, senior director of shared space Clubs, and director of education. Under his leadership with BGCB’s shared space Clubs, the staff has executed the organization’s mission of preparing its youth to be tomorrow’s future leaders and responsible citizens. His ability to form and mold relationships combined with his interpersonal characteristics has allowed BGCB to benefit from partnerships with organizations such as Boston After School & Beyond, After School and Out of School, Boston Public Health’s Violence Intervention Program and Boston Public Schools. He had a profound impact on the Condon South Boston Club by facilitating the Ready to Work Academy, which has helped hundreds of members prepare for a career after graduation. His work has positively transformed the lives of thousands of past and present members.

“It is an honor to return to the South Boston Club and community that welcomed me 21 years ago to work alongside and lead a talented

staff as we work diligently on behalf of the next generation of leaders in our community,” said Davis. “Club members often refer to the Club as their second home, and I am forever motivated by the opportunity to create a haven filled with opportunity, joy, and a sense of belonging for our city’s youth. I can’t wait to begin working with our local Advisory Board, key stakeholders, partners, and of course, our amazing staff, as we provide life changing experiences for our members.”

As Duvall stepped down, many Club families and parents were relieved to hear the news of Davis’s hiring.

“As a Trustee and Club parent, I am very excited for Josh to bring his leadership and knowledge of the community to the Southie Club,” said LeeAnn Manning, a South Boston Club parent and BGCB Trustee. “His thoughtful, strategic leadership of our shared space Clubs and history with the organization provides a strong platform for all he will accomplish in South Boston.”

Senior Director of Operations, Joshua Davis, draws from extensive experience to lead Club into new era of strategic development Joshua Davis

CAN-do Attitude

Photo Sparks a New Passion Project for Local Candlemaker

Aphoto of vintage beer cans started Devon McGinty on a creative journey that now provides her with a therapeutic outlet.

“These are really cool looking,” Devon said about the beer cans in the photo she saw on SOWA’s Instagram page in 2020. She has always liked vintage and retro things.

So she went and bought the cans, not knowing what she would do with them.

“I was brainstorming and I just came up with the idea of making candles out of that,” she said. “I like retro vintage mixed with modern and I just think it’s a really cool way to keep things modern but also pay tribute to older things.”

The only thing was, she’d never made a candle.

So she educated herself on candle making. “It’s been a cool learning process. I love learning how to do new things.”

She turned her passion project into CAN’dl by Dev, a play on the vintage cans she uses and candles.

“I found an outlet to make myself feel good and still do things for other people,” she said.

Devon, 26, a Syracuse University graduate, has her dream job as a Medicolegal Death Investigator for the office of the Chief Medical Examiner. But her job can be difficult

and sad. And during the COVID19 pandemic, she was going into the office every day while most everyone else was working from home.

“I found [candle making] to be very therapeutic,” she said. “I’d come home from work and it would be the first thing I started doing. It was very relaxing and took my mind off of what I was doing earlier in the day.”

She started making candles in winter 2020 and had a large batch ready by Christmas that year. She started an Instagram page to help spread the word. Friends and family increased her reach.

“It was a really good way, especially during COVID, to

get back in touch with people,” Devon said, noting she was hand delivering her CAN-dls in Boston and elsewhere in Massachusetts.

Other people she knows who don’t live in the area heard about the candles and wanted them, too, so she started shipping them.

“I realized that people were really liking them so I just kept doing it and ended up making a website. It has very much for me been … a happy outlet to my not so cheery dayto-day job, but it’s been really great.”

She has been participating in popups – she was part of the Sip & Shop Holiday pop-up at The Broadway in December – and has gotten to meet a lot of small business owners and learn a lot about starting a business.

“It’s been a hobby for me more than a business,” she said, “but now I’m kind of like, ‘OK, I can do more with this.’ ”

Devon is considering registering CAN’dl by Dev as a business, and a South Boston business approached her to sell her candles at their shop.

She gets her vintage cans from collectors, eBay, Etsy, antique markets. “My main focus is vintage cans,” she said. “They look so much cooler than cans now.”

Plus, she noted, vintage cans are thicker and more durable than today’s cans and make for great candle vessels.

She uses mostly beer cans, and some vintage soda cans, but has also made larger candles in vintage Copley Coffee tins, including some with citronella. “I’m always

looking for new ideas,” she said.

Her long-burning CAN’dls, which are hand poured with all-natural soy wax and are available in a variety of fragrances, reach a large demographic, because men like them, too.

She was living in South Boston when she started making her candles.

“At the time I was living with three other people,” she said. “They were very nice in letting me turn our kitchen into a candle laboratory.”

She now lives in Newton with a large kitchen that is perfect for candle making, but she is still very connected to South Boston.

South Boston “is such a great community,” Devon said. “I’ve been able to sell my candles there and people love them. And now I’m working at a restaurant there [Fat Baby] and I love it.”

She estimates she makes about 250 candles a year. Her busy season is Christmas, but candles make great gifts year-round, she said. She’s also made candles for weddings and rehearsal dinners.

“It’s never too late to find a new passion,” Devon said. “Be open to learning new things. It can lead to something great.”

Polar Plunge

1st, was a very warm, mid-winter day – far warmer than most other New Year’s Days in South Boston. The tide at M Street Beach was out. The sun, which rose at 7:15, was an especially bright yellow. The Polar Plunge began with perhaps as many as 200 Plungers gathering at the Woods’ L Street Tavern on the corner of L and Eighth Streets. It’s worth mentioning that the Polar Plunges are also very effective fundraisers. Jane, the President of the New England Scleroderma Chapter was on hand, and only the Lord knows how much the L Street Brownies raise every year for local causes.

Promptly at 8:15, those gathered at the L Street Tavern formed up on L Street. They were led by Kevin Conroy’s 103rd Pipes & Drums Postal Fire Column, who stepped off on L, turned left onto Eighth, and then proceeded to the end of M. They crossed Day Boulevard and grouped on M Street Beach for a final air at 8:30. Then, they joined the large number already on the Beach and the Plunging began en masse at 8:35.

It was essentially impossible to count the number of 2023 Plungers accurately. The size of the crowd looked to be over 500, after the 200 from L Street Tavern joined with the even larger number of Plungers already on the Beach. In the past (prior to the pandemic), the Plunge took place on the K Street side of the Curley Community Center. Depending upon the weather, as many as 750 people would show up to take the Plunge. Last Sunday, there were almost as many as that taking part, even though it was outdoors on M Street Beach. So the Plunge is really back. A few more Plungers took their dips on Carson Beach across from K Street.

As always, costumes, make-up,

and all kinds of props brought a lot to see to the Plunge. And the South Boston Polar Plunge is certainly well known. Suzanne brought her friends Jessica and Sheila to our 2023 Plunge; her friends had never Plunged before. Suzanne said, “This Plunge is the only way to start.” We aren’t sure how he got in, but a man named McDonough sported a Miami Dolphins banner – ‘Fins and all (South Boston is tolerant; we’ll let anyone Plunge. Besides, Miami lost that afternoon). And there were many newcomers among the 2023 Plungers – it looked as if the “newbies” actually outnumbered the “old timers” and the “born-and-brought-up-here” Plungers.

Around a dozen members of the

years ago. Kelliher had led his whole family into the annual Southie Plunges year after year. Since then, the Kellihers have all Plunged every New Year, specifically as a way to remember Lenny. Sunday, January 1, was a beautiful day, and the Polar Plunge was a highly successful event. Bagpipes, laughter, and shouts during the Plunge filled the air. A delightful South Boston tradition has returned for sure. And who knows? We might even be back in the Curley Center by the time that the 2024 New Year Polar Plunge rolls around.

Kelliher family from Allston took the 2023 Plunge, in memory of Lenny Kelliher, who was an avid Plunger himself before he passed on ten

It Takes a Community to Make a City

into account what someone might be going through. I love people, and I love talking!” he said. “These are good kids, and sometimes when one is having trouble you see change over time. They are decent kids, and 98% are polite.”

On a day just before the holiday break, Bob Juliano explained that the kids are restless after school all day, and a little “hyper” when they get out. It didn’t stop him from fist pumping many and in a matter-offact way, asking them to stop before bounding across Dorchester St.

It may seem that it takes a stop sign, neon stripes on a jacket, and getting to a designated street corner on time to be a successful crossing guard, but that would be incomplete. It takes a love of children and a city, an engaging confidence, and an ability to think on one’s feet, and Bob Juliano has all that and more. His post is at the corner of West Eighth and Dorchester St. and he oversees the safety of UP Academy students in grades 6-8, and other teens walking home from other Boston Public Schools. Every bit of the respect has been earned in relationships with teens who likely have more on their minds than waiting for speeding cars. Without the advantage of parents guiding the conversation as in elementary schools, Bob is the kind of authentic and caring presence these teenagers seem to appreciate.

Born in Chelsea and raised on D. Street, Bob Juliano had worked in security for thirteen years, and at Marion Manor for fourteen. He is husband to Maria and father of Samantha and Robert. He earned a GED degree after leaving South Boston High to help take care of his sick grandfather. He is well grounded in kindness and comfortable with outreach to people of all backgrounds.

“I was brought up to treat everyone the same, and to take

One student was eager to get where he was going and headed out in traffic. Bob asked him firmly to stop and wait and the student asked “why?” Bob didn’t miss a beat and felt an explanation was needed. “You see how many cars go right through red lights. They might not stop, and it is dangerous,” he said. The boy calmly waited knowing that Bob Juliano literally had his back.

In a short time, at least three cars went through red lights, as over three hundred students at UP Academy were eager to get home. Bob Juliano, no stranger to city life, is rightfully concerned and thinks about resolutions. However, the most obvious gift he brings to his job is being able to be part of a community of teenagers and

to have a strong sense of regard for them. He also just enjoys it.

“Today is wear your pajamas to school day. Wait until you see them,” he joyously said. “This job keeps me young and energized.”

Teenagers may be many things but talking to strangers or coming up with phony answers is not usually in their repertoire. There was something automatic and genuine when some students were asked about their crossing guard.

“He is a really nice dude. He makes me laugh,” said a serious appearing twelve-year-old, Jakobe.

A group of talkative girls stopped to say, “same to you” when

he wished them a good holiday, and a high school student, Adnan, walking home from “downtown” smiled and added, “he is really an amazing guy out here every day.”

“This is a melting pot,” said Bob Juliano “and I like it that way. You know, it’s what a city should be. I like meeting everyone,” he said as he slowed down another group of fast walking students. “I used to be more boisterous, but I’ve learned to tone down a little bit, and it usually works,” he said, as another car ran a red light and hundreds of his kids navigated a city made a touch safer and more caring.

A Weekend of South Boston’s Seaport Ice Sculptures

One of Boston’s most visible, attractive displays

during the New Year weekend are the numerous ice sculptures that adorn our urban buildings and open areas. Every single one of these creations is original, specially designed, and hand-crafted in observance of New Year’s Eve and Day in Boston. This burst of creativity has become an integral part of Boston’s First Night, a huge celebration here that began over 50 years ago. This year, perhaps the center of these icy exhibitions was in and around Copley Square, which also featured nonstop entertainment all afternoon – both inside and outside the

Boston Public Library. Several other ice sculptures were created along Atlantic Avenue and the Waterfront, including a montage of icy seals by the Aquarium. Over a dozen ice sculptures were located within South Boston’s Seaport District. But, of course, ice melts. And our temperatures last weekend, which felt like spring, maximized that tendency. After rainfall (hard at times) on Saturday evening, there was not much left to see on New Year’s Day itself. Our photos represent those sculptures that could be found in the Seaport District of South Boston around mid-

day, Saturday, December 31.

One of the key Seaport themes featured sculptures that could include those who were viewing, by encouraging them to pose for photographs. A couple of these sculptures were simply icy frames. Betty the Yeti, a kids’ icon in the Seaport, was featured in a couple of sculptures. And one of the sculptures was actually a frozen Cornhole board that people could play on. And the off-and-onagain showers didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. The 20222023 changeover seemed to be a very joyful event everywhere we looked.


A Happy and Healthy New Year to all!

Just before we left for Christmas vacation, Ms. Smith’s 6th Grade students at South Boston Catholic Academy did a marvelous job in the Nativity Play. The word nativity comes from the Latin word “nativus” which means “arisen by birth” which is

fitting since the nativity sets reflect the true meaning of Christmas and are fashioned after the accounts of Christ’s birth in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. The 6th Graders, also, did an amazing job making their very own Enchanted Village of South Boston 2022,

which included a Church, Police Station, Fire and EMT Station, Pet Shop, and Candy Shop to mention a few. The students from K0 to 5th Grade were welcomed to come and see the Enchanted Village and the 6th Graders helped them with a fun Scavenger Hunt which

was also a part of this class project. All of us at SBCA hope and pray that everyone will have a Happy and Healthy 2023! New Families are welcome to email our admissions team at: admissions@sbcatholicacaedmy. org to learn more about South Boston Catholic Academy.

Rep. Lynch Secures $3M in Funding for South Boston Community Project and Veterans in Appropriations Bill

of a two-floor addition to the South Boston Community Health Center.

U.S. Representative Stephen F. Lynch (MA-08) announced that he secured $3M in funding for the South Boston Community Health Center and veterans in the final 2023 appropriations government funding package. The $1.7T package includes funding for the following projects: $1,000,000 for Home Base – This funding will support the operation of Massachusetts General Hospital’s “Home Base” clinic, which promotes the health and wellbeing of veterans, service members, and their families.

“Mass General’s Home Base clinic is the only private sector clinic in New England devoted to providing care and support for our veterans, our service members, and their families as they heal from invisible wounds, such as anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress,” said Rep. Lynch. “I am proud to have secured this critical funding, which will enable Mass General to accommodate increased participation in the Home Base Families of the Fallen Intensive Clinical Program and the Home Base Resilient Youth Program. I am grateful for the support of Brigadier General Jack Hammond, Leslie Feinberg, and Michael Allard of Home Base as well as Mass General President Dr. David Brown and Boston Red Sox Foundation Chairman Thomas Werner, whose dedicated work was essential to securing this funding.”

$2,000,000 for South Boston –This funding will be used to support the design and construction phases

“The South Boston Community Health Center carries out more than 70,000 medical visits each year, and demand for its services is growing rapidly,” said Rep. Lynch. “I am proud to have secured this much-needed funding for the South Boston Community Health Center, where it will be used to expand the Health Center’s capacity so that it can accommodate the

increased demand for its services. I am grateful for the support of South Boston Community Health Center CEO William Halpin Jr., whose good work was essential to securing this funding.”

The appropriations bill funds 14 community projects in the 8th Congressional District, providing nearly $30.5M that will help make residents safer, strengthen our communities, support veterans’ mental health, create jobs with good pay and start to tackle climate

change. The government funding package has been passed by both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate and will be signed into law by President Biden. When enacted, the State of Massachusetts will receive an estimated amount of $255M in funding from the bill that will support 161 community projects across the Commonwealth. To receive Community Project Funding, an entity must submit a detailed application and demonstrate that its project enjoys strong local support.
