John Hunter returns as the FHSBOSTON Manager for this project, and below is our menu for the summer.
Thank you to Boston Harbor Now for such an amazing partnership! The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation for the work and efforts of their team and overall awesomeness! This project brings smiles to many faces. Our Finesse Team enjoys the opportunity to do what they love and earn a living doing it and the thousands of visitors who come out, enjoy an amazing day on the harbor islands.
The delicious wraps we sell on Georges are made by the students at Community Work Services. Through the CWS culinary program, they are learning a valuable skill to be self-sufficient. Gregg Caplitz works hard to provide them the skills. We sell the wraps for a reasonable price of $6.00 which more than 50% goes back to CWS. We’re committed to the cause and thank those who support it while enjoying their tasty wraps!
One taste, and you’ll know why it instills a strong sense of nostalgia for many Bostonians. RICHIE’S KING OF SLUSH MFG CO INC , is a proud #localbusiness that came through for us in 2021 and is back for more. There is an actual “Richie”, Richard Cardillo, who diligently works his butt off like we do! We appreciate his partnership and his amazing slush!
The Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park is the largest recreation area in metro Boston, where you can immerse yourself in discovery, learning, history, and adventure. From sunset clam bakes to summer concerts. Yoga on the beach to scenic views and Civil War era forts. There’s something for locals and visitors alike…and it’s all just minutes away.
Spectacle Island is ideal for outdoor adventures or a relaxing day by the sea. Explore 5 miles of hiking trails and take in breathtaking panoramic views atop North Drumlin. Go down to the scenic beach and unwind with views of the city skyline.
Georges Island is home to Fort Warren. Bring out your inner history buff, paranormal enthusiast, and childlike wonder as you explore this massive civil war era fort. Enjoy a picnic, check out the visitor center, and be sure to ask about the legend of the Lady in Black!
