2018 SCC Annual Meeting & Dinner

Thanks to everyone who attended our 2018 Annual Meeting & Dinner. We hope you had as much fun as we did! 

Special thanks to our award winners and event sponsors. (If you get the chance, let them know that you appreciate them, too.) They were joined by more than 200 SCC members, partners and friends who came together to celebrate our City and our collective work to ensure a Somerville for everyone. 

We kicked-off the evening with a call to action for the real estate transfer fee being proposed for Somerville, which would impose a fee on certain real estate transactions to protect and create affordable housing in the City. 

People created a Chain of Kindness for the SCC 2018 Annual Meeting & Dinner table activity.

This was followed by a fun table activity that created a “Chain of Kindness,” with each Annual Meeting guest creating a paper chain link that illustrated a time when they were shown and, in turn, showed the kindness and love which exemplifies Somerville.

We also dined on savory fare from Jules Catering and danced to the tunes of The Busted Jug Band. And, of course, we we celebrated our 2018 SCC Annual Award recipients. 

Afruza Akther from Union United was this year’s Hazel Hughes Award winner. Recipient of the Norris Weston Award was Iric Rex from Davis Square Architects.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
