35th Year Celebration Testimony

I have lived in Jamaica Plain for 7 years, and I would not have survived city living if it wasn’t for the Blue Hills.  I run on the trails as much as possible, and I remember, when my father was sick and dying, I would go there for solace and peace.  Thank you, thank you for all that you do to make the Blue Hills a beautiful and amazing place!
