Happy New Year!!
Dear Merrymount Residents,
The Association Board wishes everyone a Happy and healthy 2020. The Association had another great year in 2019. We had approximately 350 household memberships (down slightly from last year) and continued to plan and execute monthly events and activities throughout the year at the Beach and in the community. We also added a new grill in the shack and new kitchen equipment to help putting out great meals all summer long. A major thank you to all the board members and neighbors who volunteered their time and energy to make last year another successful year.
Looking ahead to 2020, we have a number of exciting events planned. New this year is our Luau Party on Saturday, January 25 at 8pm at the Pour Yard indoor space on Washington Street. Next, come meet up with neighbors and warm up by Fox and Hound’s cozy fireplace on Saturday, February 8. Look to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the Hofbrau Café and attend our Annual Meeting at the Fox and Hound at the end of March, date TBD.
Turning to spring, we are hoping for warm and sunny weather for our annual Easter egg hunt at the beach on Saturday, April 4. In May, we host our annual Cleaner Greener beach cleanup on Saturday, May 2, volunteers always needed!! June brings the Summer Kickoff Party on Saturday, June 6 with live music and food trucks at the beach as well as the annual Flea Market on June 13th.
July is always a great month in Merrymount with the annual July 3rd beach celebration and the July 4th parade. Please start thinking about ideas for this year’s parade theme! We will again host a Summer Jazz Brunch on Sunday, July 25th and will look to have another Sunday Funday event at the beach in August which was a great time last year with giant water slides for the kids – this year, we hope to add some live music for everyone else.
September will see the return of the very popular Friday night live music series we had last year and movie night and campout at the beach in September. October brings Oktoberfest and a Halloween kids party at the beach. We’ll plan for the New England Patriots tailgate at the beach in November (fingers crossed weather cooperates). To finish the year, we will hold the annual Turkey Trot race Thanksgiving morning, an Ugly Sweater party, and the incredibly popular holiday horse-drawn “sleigh” ride in December.
We aim to continue the improvements to the shack and beach property in 2020 with new picnic tables, landscaping, and some bathroom repairs. With the addition of the numerous new events, and due to the rising cost of property insurance and taxes, the board cannot stress enough the importance of increasing the number of memberships collected this year. We will be sending out membership forms in February, but in the meantime, membership dues can be paid online at http://www.merrymountquincy.com/membership.html.
