Open House 2013 was possibly our best Open House yet! We had a record number of guests–266 to be exact. These visitors toured the MAPC office in Downtown Boston, met with our staff, and had the chance to hear about all of the exciting projects we’re working on. This Open House focused on our 50th anniversary as a theme, which was woven through the displays, including an 8′ timeline of MAPC’s history, displayed on our hallway wall. (View an interactive version of this timeline here)
Our guests also had the opportunity to earn raffle tickets at different stations throughout the night, and entered those tickets in a free raffle with some great prizes, many of which were generously donated by local vendors.
