Charlestown Peace Walk

On Tuesday, June 26th, we are planning to hold an unveiling ceremony at the newly revitalized Mt. Vernon Street Plaza followed by a community-wide Walk for Peace and inspirational dinner.

The event will begin at 4:30pm at the Mt. Vernon Street Plaza where there will be a blessing of the park, a few brief statements by residents and organizations involved in the revitalization as well as a few short words from the niece of Robert McGrath. During the event, residents will then be given the opportunity to decorate memorial rocks to add to the park in honor of their loved ones.
