The Harlem Globetrotters were in town last weekend and put on a show for fifth graders from Roxbury’s Emerson Elementary at the new Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Dorchester’s Upham’s Corner neighborhood. Pictured at right are the Globetrotters giving some basketball tips to Emerson principal Dr. Vivian Swoboda and Major Robert Kountz of the Salvation Army. The Kroc Center, which has fitness, aquatic, health, and worship space in addition to a brand-new gymnasium, officially opens April 1.

The Emerson students had an amazing time with the Globetrotters! An extra treat came in behalf of The Garden – FREE tickets to see the Globetrotters in action. A special thanks to The Garden & the Kroc Center for making this day special for our 5th graders. To my 5th graders – you guys will be surely be missed 😦 and I wish everyone all the best of luck as you become rising 6th graders 🙂
By the way, the Kroc Center official grand opening is this weekend – April 1st – 3rd. Come see a brand new community center with over 2,700 square feet on 6 acres of land in the heart of Dudley Street Neighborhood.
