Hero of the Harbor

Parade of Boats 1

This year, Waterfront Alliance did Billion Oyster Project the great honor of naming us as a Hero of the Harbor.  The Heroes of the Harbor awards go to members of our waterfront community who have made unique contributions to revitalizing the Harbor and waterfront as an exceptional place to live, work, and play.  On Monday, October 5, 2015, BOP joined the ranks of those so honored, at a ceremony following a spectacular Parade of Boats.  Harbor students and staff were in attendance at the bash (which was, in fact, spectacular), and Murray and Pete accepted the award on behalf of BOP.

We couldn’t be more proud to be recognized in this way, and we look forward to continuing to work with Waterfront Alliance and the other members of this community for many years to come.  We envision a time when Harbor School students, and others inspired by BOP, have gone on to do their own work which Waterfront Alliance will count worthy of this award: it’s a big Harbor, and there’s plenty of heroism to go around.
