Join Us For Christmas Dinner!

December 9th, 2014 by BOWES

No Arlingtonian should be alone on Christmas Day. You are now invited to attend our Annual Christmas Dinner and share the day with many other Arlington residents. (We call them new friends!)

Every year since 1977, the BOWES family has extended an invitation to anyone eating alone on this special day. We host a wonderful turkey dinner, with all the trimmings, at the Arlington Lodge of Elks.  Dinner is prepared and served by our amazing group of volunteers who look forward to meeting new and familiar faces each year.

BOWES Christmas Dinner

It is a fun filled day and a great way to spend the afternoon. There is no charge and transportation to and from the dinner is available. The only requirements are that you are an Arlington resident and that you would otherwise be eating alone.

You may reserve a space by calling me at 781-645-0550.  So, please accept this invitation and don’t procrastinate! We want you to share your Christmas Day with us and look forward to meeting you.

We attribute our success in part to the remarkable customer service platform we have created. Several years ago, we retained an independent, third party company that evaluates every one of our customers, after the transaction. We post the results of every survey on our website to be read and reviewed by all. We proudly report that our customer satisfaction rating so far this year is a perfect 100%.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home, we hope to hear from you soon!
