Paul Harris Awards Dinner

 

On Friday evening, June 6th, the Rotary Club of West Roxbury-Roslindale hosted its annual Paul Harris awards dinner.  This year we were honored to present the award to Mary Mulvey Jacobson.  As President of the WRBPA, she works with Deutsches Altenheim and Ethos on the popular "Stand Up For Seniors - Coffee and Conversation with the Candidates" forums so that residents of the German Center and the greater community can hear first hand from candidates running for the public office.  She is also a proud and distinguished graduate of Regis College, where she received a BA in Economics, and has served as Class President for many years.  Mary is also President of the Irish Social Club of Boston, having taken a leadership role in getting the organization reopened and back on its feet.  She is the President of the Board of Directors of Ethos, which provides meals and living assistance to keep Parkway area senior citizens and disabled in their homes for as long as possible.  Mary also serves as vice Chair of the West Roxbury YMCA, serving on the Capital Campaign Committee.  She was a founding Incorporator of the Gardens at Gethsemane in West Roxbury, a non-sectarian cemetery open to all faiths.  She had coordinated the Annual Memorial Day Service for 14 years as well as the First Annual Flag Retirement Ceremony.  For over 25 years, Mary served as Co-State Chair of the Massachusetts Beirut Memorial Committee, honoring the Marines who gave their lives in Lebanon in 1983.  She worked at Boston City Hall for a dozen years as Chief of Staff to then Boston City Councillor Maura Hennigan and remains active, involved and interested in all things political.  She is an elected member of the Ward 19 Democratic Committee.
