Do your customers have fun when they are inside your shop or restaurant? Do they appreciate the fact that your employees are knowledgeable about your menu items and retail products when they are visiting your shop? For most successful local businesses, the answers are yes. But what happens when your business moves “online?” Do your Facebook, Twitter and blog posts translate that fun and knowledge to your customers when they interact with your brand online?

This seminar will give you tips and tactics to create social media posts that deliver the personality of your unique business. Attendees will learn the keys to successful social media programs on how to engage your customers on a regular basis and to successfully translate what happens in your store via your social media posts. Learn how – and when to use humor and product knowledge to create social media posts that will engage your customers on a regular basis. (Parking available in adjacent lot)

Mayor Walsh's Allston-Brighton Coffee Hour

Thu. Jun 21, 2018

Brighton Common

9:30 am - 10:30 am

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will host the 18th Annual Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series in local parks citywide from April 24 to July 20. The mayor will visit Allston-Brighton on June 30 with a coffee hour at Brighton Common, across from the Brighton branch of the Boston Public Library and the Brighton Courthouse.

"Coffee Hours give me another opportunity to meet with residents, answer their questions and discuss all that the City of Boston has to offer," said Mayor Walsh. "Our parks provide a great backdrop for conversation and I look forward to hearing from more of my constituents throughout the spring and summer."

The Neighborhood Coffee Hours give residents a unique opportunity to speak directly with Mayor Walsh about open space and other needs in their neighborhoods. Through these discussions and a suggestion box at each site, Mayor Walsh looks forward to hearing how the City of Boston can improve upon local parks, public areas and city services. All participants will enjoy coffee and breakfast treats provided by Dunkin' Donuts and fresh fruit from Whole Foods Market. In addition, each family in attendance will receive a flowering plant grown in the city's greenhouses as a gift from Mayor Walsh. Residents at the event will also be eligible to win raffle prizes from Dunkin' Donuts.

Information will be available on City programs from the Boston Public Library, Boston Public Schools, Boston Police Department, and Boston Centers for Youth & Families. All coffee hours will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Dates for the full schedule of Mayor Walsh's 2017 Neighborhood Coffee Hours are below. Locations are weather permitting unless otherwise noted. Coffee Hours being held in conjunction with park openings are also noted.
