CAN-DO's Tenth Anniversary

The 10th Anniversary Celebration was a tremendous success. It was well-attended by approximately 125 current and new supporters of CAN-DO. During the evening, two Courage in Affordable Housing awards were given to:

Myra Tattenbaum, former alderman for Ward 8, for her outspoken support of the Christina Street Project in the face of fierce neighborhood resistance.

Eileen Freiburg-Dale, a Newton citizen who resides in the Newton Highlands neighborhood of the Christina Street. She organized a counter-campaign to the neighborhood resistance of the Christina Street Project.
