Dedication for the Paul and Sue Prindle Tree
On Thursday, June 17, many gathered with well wishes on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall to celebrate the dedication of a tree to Sue Prindle and her late husband, Paul.
Sue and Paul Prindle were instrumental in the early efforts to ensure that the Back Bay is the wonderful neighborhood it is today. Among so many other things, what would the neighborhood look like without the Clarendon Street Playground, and the preservation of the historic architecture of Back Bay buildings on every corner? We have them (and many others) to thank for their hard work and dedication to our neighborhood which has made and continues to make it the active and engaged community it is today.
Simply put, thank you Sue – we appreciate all you have done and continue to do for us!
