The Irish Social Club of Boston is trying to get a permanent alcohol license after a club member mistakenly gave it back.
The Boston City Council supported a home rule petition to get the club a license. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino signed the petition.
A State House hearing on July 9, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. will be held before the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure.
Members and friends of the Irish Social Club are welcome to attend this hearing, although stay tuned because the date and time could change.
The following is a letter from Mary Mulvey Jacobson, of the West Roxbury Business and Professional Association, and a member of the Irish Social Club steering committee:
Dear Friends of The Irish Social Club,
I write this letter to you today to ask for a letter of support for the Irish Social Club so they can hopefully receive a legislatively granted, permanent liquor license. The draft letter attached also references support for the permanent entertainment license as well. We didn't want to bother people more than once for letters so your letter of support will be multi-purpose. Please feel free to put your letter of support on your own letterhead. Feel free to use this letter in its entirety and/or add something personal about the Irish Social Club.
As a long standing organization in the community, the Irish Social Club is an important part of West Roxbury commerce and assisting them to get "back to normal operation" would be a plus for the West Roxbury Community. Of note, the letter is being sent "To Whom It May Concern" as there are several places where this letter will be delivered and, we didn't want to ask our friends to write multiple letters so that salutation covers it all.
When the letter is finished, you can either mail it to President Mary Maloney at the Irish Social Club, 119 Park Street, West Roxbury, MA 02132 or email it back to me at WRBPA@aol.com
Thanks for your support. If you have any questions at all, please give me a call at 617-971-0290.
