The 12 Days of the Holidays in Egleston!

Have you heard of Miracle on 34th Street? How about miracles on Washington Street?!

This holiday season was full of miracles in Egleston, from the Boston Fire Department who helped us decorate our tree, to great volunteers from St. Mary’s and San Andres who helped lead caroling to local businesses, to the ONLY snowfall of the year happening right during our Holiday Event on December 1st!

Check out great pics on our Facebook page and great highlights in the JP Gazette!

And now for a little poem from ESMS to you!
