East Boston Main Streets Honored By Boston City Council

East Boston, MA (June 28, 2014) – On Friday, June 15th, East Boston Main Streets Executive Director Max Gruner and Director of Community Outreach Antonio Arevalo were presented by City Councilor Sal Lamattina with a commendation from the Boston City Council recognizing Main Streets’ effort in successfully bringing the inaugural Eastie Week 2014 to the East Boston Community.

“A special thanks and token of appreciation needs to be paid to Max Gruner and Antonio Arevalo,” said Councilor Sal Lamattina. “Not only did they organize 10 days of successful programming for Eastie Week, they never cease to take advantage of every opportunity to incorporate all of the residents of East Boston no matter what the holiday or occasion may be. These two men symbolize what makes East Boston stand out from the rest of the city, the ability to accept and include everyone and make them feel at home. No one should ever be afraid to embrace their culture or where they came from and Max and Antonio know that all too well. Congratulations and keep up the great work”!

After having organized consecutive daily events for a week and a half that included a complimentary harbor cruise enjoyed by over 700 East Boston residents, open studios highlighting two original art installations commissioned especially for Eastie Week, an original documentary movie screening produced for East Boston, as well as numerous social events that included community yoga and salsa socials, the East Boston Main Streets team was found celebrating Fathers’ Day at the culminating Block-Party on Maverick Street. “It is wonderful to see EBMS’ effort in the community recognized by the city council, and I am particularly honored to see our great and hard working staff be acknowledged in this way,” said Max Gruner, executive director of EBMS.

For more details or questions please contact Max Gruner at or at 617-561-1044.
