The Roger Clap School in Dorchester is celebrating Roger Clap's 400th Birthday. Roger was born in England on April 6,1609. He came to America aboard the Mary & John in 1630. He was a Dorchester founding father and the second commander of the fort on Castle Island. Students at the Roger Clap School have many interesting events planned including visiting Roger's grave at the King's Chapel Burial Grounds, visiting the Clap houses at the Dorchester Historical Society and writing Roger's biography.
Spring has finally sprung and Richard Oâ€™Mara, of Cedar Grove Gardens, is assembling a group of volunteers to touch up the work that was done on last yearâ€™s Park Restoration Phase 1 initiative. This is the ideal time because the leafy and prickly invaders have not gotten a head start on us.
All necessary manual and power tools will be provided. Be sure to wear long sleeves and bring work gloves if you have them. We have a few pair for those who donâ€™t. Weâ€™ll also be offering modest refreshments and lots of commaraderie. Read more
