             (Boston Orange) 中華表演藝術基金會第30 屆全美青少年國畫書法比賽於626日經4名評委審閱後,由82件參賽作品中選出48件作品,頒給金銀銅獎及佳作獎,將於830日左右上傳網站,供各界欣賞。明年賽事預定415日舉行。

              中華表演藝術基金會會長譚嘉陵表示,受新冠病毒(COVID-19)疫情影響,許多學校及書畫工作室都關閉了,或是改為在線教學,今年參賽總人數僅約往年的三分之一,共有來自加州、康州、喬治亞州、麻州、南卡羅 來納州,田納西州,德州,及華盛頓州等 8 州,15 所中文學校、書畫學苑及個別人士,送出國畫 61 件,書法 21 件等作品參賽。

              其中9歲及9歲以下的國畫甲組,參賽人數減少的尤其多,但書法倒是增加了,有多幅對聯,以及410聯屏幅。。

              626日,在20多名義工協助下,這些參賽作品貼滿在牛頓市僑教中心的大廳四週、前廳及前後走廊等地牆上。朱蓉、杜瑋、林浩宗、方正厚 4 位評委等仔細審看了二個小時,才評出結果。評委中曾在哈佛大學擔任歷史教授的陸惠風,當天抵達評審現場後,突然身體不適,提前離場。

              譚嘉陵表示,全美青少年國畫書法比賽是為鼓勵青少年學習,發揚中國的國畫、書法等傳統文化,在「譚嶽泉、蕭運貞文教紀念基金」,以及各界熱心人士的捐款贊助中舉辦30年以來,已成為許多學校及書畫工作室的固定大型活動,許多學校還先自行在校內先辦初賽,再選送優勝作品參加這一比賽,十分慎重。中華表演基金會也為此特地每年都公佈入圍名單,以期鼓勵更多青年學子學習、發揚這中華傳統文化。

              48 幅得獎作品經裝裱後,將在 8 30 日前後放上網頁 www.ChinesePerformingArts.net,供各界欣賞。明年比賽的截止收件日期,預定仍是 4 15 日,希望各界踴躍參加。查詢請冾譚嘉陵,電子郵件: Foundation@ChinesePerformingArts.net

MAYOR JANEY CELEBRATES THE GRAND OPENING OF NEW HOUSING FOR OLDER ADULTS IN DORCHESTER AT HEARTH AT FOUR CORNERS

 The new building created 54 units of supportive, affordable housing with green efficiencies and on-site services 

 

BOSTON - Wednesday, June 30, 2021- Today, Mayor Kim Janey, the State of Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Michael Kennealy, Hearth President and CEO Mark Hinderlie, D.F. Pray President Scott Pray, the Hearth Board of Directors and local elected officials joined Hearth at Four Corners residents to celebrate the grand opening of Hearth at Four Corners. The more than $19 million housing development created 54 new units of supportive, affordable housing for older adults, and is located on a previously vacant city-owned lot at 16 Ronald Street in Dorchester. Today’s announcement demonstrates the City of Boston’s commitment to creating more equitable affordable housing for older residents. 

 “As a city, we measure our success by how we serve all of our people. I'm proud that together with our partners, we've created these affordable and beautiful new homes for older Boston residents, offering a place that they are proud to call home,” said Mayor Janey. “These new homes are an example of our commitment to preserving and growing our affordable housing options in our city. I want to thank all partners involved for making Hearth at Four Corners possible, which will make a positive difference in the lives of the residents and the Dorchester neighborhood.”

 Hearth at Four Corners created 54 affordable apartments for older Boston residents, creating 52 one-bedroom units and two studio apartments. All residents living in the new 48,867 square foot building have access to on-site concierge services and a Resident Service Coordinator. They also have onsite wellness services. The new housing development serves individuals age 62 or older who have a range of incomes, including eight units for formerly homeless individuals, 11 units for clients of the Department of Mental Health, 19 units for those with incomes up to 30% of the area median income (AMI) ($26,850 for an individual), 18 units for incomes up to 50% of AMI ($44,800 for an individual), and 17 units for those incomes up to 60% of AMI ($53,760 for an individual).

 “We are so glad to be able to work with all of our partners to create beautiful, affordable housing for older Bostonians,” said Jessica Boatright, Deputy Director of the Neighborhood Housing Division for the Department of Neighborhood Development. “We know how important it is to create housing for our aging residents to ensure that they are able to continue to live in the City that they have helped to build and call their home. Hearth at Four Corners is a wonderful addition for older Bostonians and for the neighborhood.”  

 “When you’re in a shelter or on the streets, you’re just surviving. You’re only thinking about your next meal and where you’re going to sleep,” said Hearth at Four Corners resident Juanita. “When I moved into my apartment, I couldn’t believe how much stuff was already there. Hearth provided me with a bed, new sheets, couch, everything for my kitchen and bathroom. It’s like they knew the toll surviving takes on a person, and they were going to help me live, again. All these years all I wanted was housing, but Hearth found me a home. I want to thank Mayor Janey, everyone from the city, the shelters and especially at Hearth for not giving up on people like me and helping me make this dream come true. I finally have a home!”

 Hearth at Four Corners construction used the highest standards of universal design throughout the new building to accommodate older adults of all abilities. The building meets LEED Silver, Energy Star, and Enterprise Green Community standards.

 “Every day at the Age Strong Commission, we hear from older Bostonians facing homelessness and struggling with housing issues,” said Commissioner Shea. “I am proud of this partnership for what it’s going to mean to so many older adults, providing not only a place to sleep, but a home and a community where they can live and thrive. Now more than ever, we need to come together to empower older adults and build supportive communities like this one.”

 Financing for the project includes support from the City of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, and State, Federal low-income housing tax credits, MassDevelopment, Citizens, and Eastern Bank. Philanthropic support was provided by Charles H. Farnsworth Trust, Charlesbank Homes, and individual donors.

 “Hearth at Four Corners represents a new phase of Hearth’s meeting its mission of ending homelessness among older adults, developed after 30 years of local and national leadership in addressing this often-overlooked population,” stated Mark Hinderlie, CEO of the developer, Hearth, Inc. “Hearth’s previous 174 units were built or developed specifically for formerly homeless older adults or those at imminent risk of homelessness. Four Corners incorporates a new focus on preventing homelessness by providing opportunities for those with very low to moderately low incomes to afford to remain safely housed in a beautiful, affordable home.”

 The new building is located on the former Ronald Gibson School site, near the MBTA Fairmount line. The construction of the new building was done by Hearth’s contractor D.F. Pray, and the new development received support from the community, the Erie Ellington Brinsley Neighborhood Association. D.F. Pray also adheres to the City of Boston’s Residents Jobs Policy on construction projects, with Hearth at Four Corners exceeding the City’s target of 40% by hiring 65.3% minority contractors.  

 In the past five years, 424 units for older residents have either been completed or are currently in construction, 93 percent of which are income-restricted units. Also, the City has seven more developments in the pipeline that will create 374 more units for older residents. 

 The construction of Hearth at Four Corners strongly aligns with the City of Boston’s housing goals to produce affordable housing for older Bostonians, as outlined in Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030. Through Housing A Changing City: Boston 2030, the City’s housing plan, the City set a target of creating 2,000 low-income elderly units by 2030. Along with Hearth at Four Corners is Grace Apartments in East Boston, The Barton Rogers School in Hyde Park, and several other projects, the City has permitted or constructed 627 new low-income units for older residents.
