The Future of MyDorchester | June 2

We’re planning an evening to hear feedback from the community about the relevance, role and future of MyDorchester. We’re hoping to find out how we can continue to shape the website/program to best serve the neighborhood - whether that’s changing how the site is managed, what is on the site, whether to have a website at all, who we should be listening to and working with.

When: June 2nd, from 6:30pm-8:00pm 

Food Wil be provided.
