Happy Birthday B-SAFE!

On July 15th, more than 700 young people, teens, staff, and parishioners helped us to celebrate 15 great years of summer enrichment programming. The day was full of sunshine, games, ice cream, and smiles. The event, held at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, was the first in our history to bring all six B-SAFE sites together. Special appearances from former staff, partner churches, and even program alumni made the day even more memorable.
