Happy Friday Afternoon Boston.
As we are deep into the dog days of summer, that means that cooler weather and better airline operations are approaching, and so is September 11th. To those of you new to Boston, it is a very bittersweet time of year for those of us that we here on that fateful day. The sun is usually shining, the humidity is reduced, and the crowds start to return to the many universities that surround us. All in all it is the most wonderful time of year to be in New England, unless you are a glutton for the heat and humidity of summer. September 11th is remembered in so many ways, and here are a few that might be of interest. If you need more information about these events, please call any officer in Boston.
