The food, including cold roasted shrimp, hummus and olives, tomatoes and blue cheese dip, brie with apricot preserves and candied pecans and a variety of roasted vegetables, was catered by the United Teen Equality Center’s Fresh Roots Program.
Entertainment was provided by the Lowell High School Holiday Horns and Henri the Magnificent (who by day doubles as City Manager Bernie Lynch’s assistant).
We even scored a visit from Santa!
City Health Inspector and Acre neighborhood leader Dave Ouellette made an amazing gingerbread replica of the Whiting Street Community Garden . . . oh, and he also brought 413 pounds of non-perishable food to the Mayor’s office Thursday morning as part of the Mayor’s food drive.
