Welcome to the official Boston Harbor Association (BHA) home page!

BHA is a non-profit entity with a board of nine volunteers elected annually that organizes our July 3rd Fireworks Show, the September potluck, the neighborhood garage sale, the annual meeting and neighborhood projects as needed. During 2015 the Boston Harbor sign at shipwreck corner was replaced and several “historic signs” were erected. BHA is also our advocate voice to protect our peaceful rural lifestyle rich in local history, natural history and wildlife that we value. The Boston Harbor Association actively contributes to making our neighborhood a vibrant place to call home. BHA membership is the biggest “bang for your buck” available anywhere!

BHA 2024 Annual Meeting

The 2024 BHA Annual Meeting was held in person at the North Olympia Fire Station 8-3, 5046 Boston Harbor Rd NE, Olympia, WA 98506 on February 7, 2024. Doors opened at 6:00 PM, meeting started at 6:30 PM.

A lot was covered at this meeting, including an overview of what was accomplished in 2023 and a preview of potential plans for 2024. This meeting thus served as a way for the community to engage with the board and to show the progress we’ve made over the last year. Elections were held for the coming year and by law updates were reviewed and approved by the membership. The main update was to stagger Board terms so that the entire Board is not replaced yearly, thus ensuring continuity. There was a discussion about the fireworks. While the fireworks are being held this summer and the Board is already busy preparing for them, a survey will be held later in the summer to determine what the membership feels about them going forward.

See the Documents page for pertinent documents, including the revised by-laws and articles of incorporation, the annual meeting minutes and monthly Board meeting minutes and the treasurer’s reports for the past several years.

The July 3rd Fireworks 

Our largest event of the year is the fireworks show held at the Boston Harbor Marina. We are proud to host this event and will continue to do so for as long as possible. Of course, the only way we are able to pull it off is due to our amazing members of the community and the sponsorship of local businesses. Your generosity is the backbone of our community and we are so grateful for each and every one of you. Your annual dues not only go to this event but help us with everything we do to make this community better. Thank you.
