On Thursday, September 17, BrooklineCAN will hold its 5th Annual Meeting and Welcoming Reception at the Brookline Senior Center, 93 Winchester St. from 5 to 7 PM. This year’s event will focus on transportation—the many ways that Brookline residents of all ages are on the move and getting around town. Governor Michael S. Dukakis will be honored for his leadership and support of improved public transportation.

The Annual meeting will also highlight BrooklineCAN’s many achievements this year. Refreshments will be served, and music will be provided by the Brookline High School Jazz Ensemble.

This event is free and open to all. RSVP by Thursday, September 10th at info@BrooklineCAN.org or call 617-730-2777
