Thistle and Shamrock temporarily closed (COVID), should open next week

Thistle & Shamrock Update. This was just posted on the store’s Facebook account. Update: as of Saturday morning, 1 other employee has tested positive for covid. This does not come as a surprise considering I live with the first employee that is positive, my wife. All other employees have tested negative, which is a very strong indication that we come in contact with the virus through our children (they are also positive, 2 and 4 years old), who got it at one of their respective schools.

Brrr....Too cold for our "Stand Out" at Porter Square, Sunday Dec 6th!

Arbitrarily, I am suggesting that folks not "Stand Out Against Racism" at Porter Square if it is less than 40 degrees, or raining/snowing.

After all, we don't want to put folks in danger of getting sick, with COVID waiting in the wings.

Stay Safe, till the weather improves!

Meanwhile, write the Governor, and ask him to sign the Police Reform Bill. It may not be all we need, but it is a good first step, and it is in hand. So please write!

"Stand Out Against Racism" Sunday, Nov 29, 10 am-noon!

Neighbors and Friends,

We invite you to join us at Porter Square - Sunday, Nov 29, 10 am - 12 noon! 

Hopefully, we have all had a safe Thanksgiving with, most of all, a chance to see and hug (if only virtually) our loved ones.

Most of us have much to be thankful for, although this has been a very tough year. There are, however, far too many families across this country crying for a member lost to police violence. Still, we cannot, even here in MA, get a police reform bill out of Beacon Hill.

"Stand Out Against Racism" at Porter Square, Nov 22, 10am-noon!

Neighbors and Friends,

We invite you to join us at Porter Square - Sunday, Nov 22, 10 am - 12 noon!

We can all talk about the transition (of the administration), and what has to happen now.

I am hoping we can make a few new signs, saying something like, "Let's come together" and vow to "make racism history". I am very much aware that even here in MA, we still do not have a police reform bill out of Beacon Hill; and here in Cambridge we have experienced some ugly examples of how far we have yet to go.
