S is for Spontaneous Celebrations
On an otherwise quiet back street near Stony Brook station stands this festive building. It was built in the 1870s as the clubhouse for the Boylston Schul-Verein, one of the many ethnic social clubs common in Jamaica Plain in the 19th century. Today it is home to Spontaneous Celebrations, a contemporary community group that brings people together for many social and activist activities. I’ve spent many hours in the building for choir practice and dance parties, and it always seems booked for rehearsals, art projects, concerts, parties, and meetings.
Spontaneous Celebrations’ signature event is The Wake Up the Earth Festival, but you’ll have to wait for my April 27th post to read about it here.
