The Ashmont Farmers Market occurs each year on the MBTA Plaza in #PeabodySquare. Our #FarmersMarket is one of the amazing programs of Greater Ashmont Main Street, this crowdfunding campaign to revitalize Peabody Square is another. This the Ashmont Farmers Market brought hundreds of people together each week to shop, meet neighbors, and even get in a workout during the #FitFridays programming by Dorchester YMCA and 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness. This campaign will help make our square even better. Watch the video and consider donating to help make tangible improvements to the public space that connects our neighborhood!

Is a reverse mortgage the way to finance a project to make your home more age-friendly? As a homeowner age 55+, you may be considering a HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage), aka a “reverse mortgage.” You’ve seen the ads with famous people promoting them, but you may have also heard horror stories. As more people retire, HECMs are expected to become more popular. But, is it right for you? WHEN: Wednesday, November 15 2017, 5:00 – 6:00 PM WHERE: Lesley University Hall, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Room 4-040, Cambridge http://agassiz.org/2017/11/reverse-mortgage-fact-fiction-v2/
