Needs of all citizens must be kept in mind regarding issue of field lights

October 12th, 2017

With the many pros and cons regarding proposed field lights, one thing that can’t be disputed is hard core financials. The Stadium Renovation budget (w/out Lights) is $3.5 million.  Lights come with a $400,000 price tag.  Another $12.5 million for a new Pre-K building is being proposed.

Thank you from Westborough 300th anniversary committees

September 21st, 2017

On behalf of our entire Westborough 300th Anniversary Committee and the Grande Parade Planning Committee, we would like to say a great big “THANK YOU” to the many organizations, businesses, and individuals who contributed to the immense success of our Town’s celebration on September 10. After more than a year of diligent planning, our Grande Parade did not disappoint!

Westborough’s 300th anniversary parade was awesome

September 20th, 2017

What an awesome parade! With all the political unrest in this country, uncertainty in world affairs, and devastating storms ripping through our neighbors’ yards to the far south, the Westborough parade was an exciting diversion for us.

Shrewsbury resident Ruth Cohen wrote this thank you to State. Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury) after he hosted an ice cream social at the Shrewsbury Senior Center Aug. 28.

State Sen. Eldridge cares more about the safety of illegal immigrants than Mass. citizens

September 4th, 2017

The Mass SJC, in one of its liberal modes, ruled last month to place the residents of this Commonwealth at risk by releasing illegal aliens subject to federal detainer requests. The SJC decided for the rest of us, that illegal immigrants charged or even convicted elsewhere of even the most serious or violent crimes could not be held by Massachusetts law enforcement one minute for ICE to act on the detainer.

President should not have pardoned Arpaio

September 4th, 2017

With so much tragedy and horror in the world that is out of our control, it is appalling to me that the president added to the pain and mistreatment suffered by the victims of former Sheriff Arpaio by pardoning him with the simple and erroneous statement that Arpaio was convicted for “doing his job.”

Thank you for successful swap event

August 30th, 2017

“Swapclothes123” in Shrewsbury is growing in families and sizes. This event would not be possible without everyone coming to swap. Thank you. The kids had a blast and kept busy coloring and building LEGO castles.

Thank you for all involved with Kane golf event

August 30th, 2017

On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and clients of Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to State Representative Hannah Kane, Tournament Chair Beth Casavant, community volunteers, The Haven Country Club, and all the generous sponsors and donors for all their hard work in organizing the Hannah Kane 3rd Annual Charity Classic, that was held on August 21.

Bourque will serve as Applefest grand marshal

August 22nd, 2017

Northborough – Some Northborough residents like to refer to resident Gerard “Gerry” Bourque as the most patriotic man they have had the pleasure of knowing. And, if you ever have the opportunity to meet him and hear his many stories, you just may agree! In 1953, when Gerard Bourque chose to enlist in the US Army, he knew he was making a big decision. However, he probably did not realize his commitment of serving would still be occurring today at the age of 84.
