President Ben Garvin called the meeting to order at 7:10 pm.

Item 1Fountain contractor bids.

Another bid for fountain maintenance was received by CSANA.  The bid was slightly lower than the first.  At this time there was no further information regarding contract negotiations and the fountain.

Item 2. Plantings.

Alma Dell Smith will order additional dwarf arbivores to even out the plantings.  James Grady will move the arbivores and variegated plants to make both sides of the Chester Square Parks even.  No more annuals will be purchased until the budget is reviewed.

Item 3. Crime statistics on web page.

Currently there is a link on the webpage to the Boston Police Department’s web site.

Item 4. Update on fundraising.

On June 27th, CRU will host a wine-tasting fundraiser.  James Grady has designed a paper and email invitation.  Joe DiGangi will take care of printing and mailing the invitation to all residents in the CSANA area.  CSANA will cover the cost of postage.  Members of CSANA will approach area restaurants and shops for food donations for the event.  Matina Madrick will post Save the Date postcards in area locations.

Item 5. Browne Fund.

This topic has been tabled until the next meeting.

Item 6. South End Garden tour.

CSANA did not feel that the South End Garden tour will require any additional support or provide a strong platform for fundraising this year.

There will be no meeting in July

Meeting was adjourned at 8:05 pm.
