Newmarket's Annual Meeting and Fundraiser a Huge Success!
Over 200 members and friends of the Newmarket Business Association and Newmarket Community Partners joined us on November 19th to celebrate our biggest event of the year, the 42nd annual Newmarket Meeting and Charitable Fundraiser!
In a strange and difficult year for everybody, we were nevertheless able to hold our annual meeting virtually for the first time! And despite our disappointment at not being able to gather together as usual, the event was still an enormous success!
Making the occasion even more momentous, this year we were pleased to welcome Mayor Martin Walsh as our keynote speaker! Throughout his time in office, Mayor Walsh has been a steadfast and valued supporter of Newmarket, and he came to answer questions from our members about everything from the the process of recovering and reopening from COVID-19 to future of development in Boston and his support for the Newmarket Business Improvement District.
And despite the hardships of the past year, 2020’s Annual Meeting did not lag behind the successes of our past few fundraisers, and this year we nearly met the record we set in 2019, raising almost one hundred thousand dollars towards our charitable and economic growth activities!
We’re looking forward to another busy year in Newmarket. With all of your support, we hope to keep making Newmarket a better place for all of us to live and work!
