If you have any questions, please contact event coordinators Bob Branco at 508-994-4972 or Marcy Segelman at 617-325-2868.

If you are joining us, please use 325 Goddard Street as the GPS address.  This is a house across Goddard Street from the park entrance.  This is the closest entrance to the Larz Anderson Park Shelter so please have your driver turn into the park entrance and drop you off at the sheltered area.  If you are using the MBTA bus system Bus 51 will take you closest to the park, but it is a 15-minute walk.  Please be sure you have walking directions.  We suggest you use a taxi or car service to get you to the address.
