SAVE THE DATE: Tuesday November 28th at 9am to decorate the lampposts, meeting at Custom House Square


As the holiday season is fast approaching the laurel decorating in the downtown historic district is about to take place. DNB, Inc. is unable to maintain the program as they are diligently working on advocacy, membership and marketing. DNB will sponsor with remaining donations from last year to be used for this year’s decorations. Thank you DNB, Inc.

New Bedford Beautiful committee and the Friends of New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park will coordinate this year’s laurel decorating in the historic district. Please thank both groups for their support and we look forward to a beautifully decorated district. The coordinator is soliciting donations and organizing volunteers to continue the holiday tradition. Thank you Jessica! If you have any questions you can contact Jessica via email at Newbedfordbeautifulnbma@gmail.com.
