Marlborough chef enjoys life after retirement

February 6th, 2014

Marlborough/Hudson – Leon Roberge, a retired local chef, at age 78, is still going strong and having lots of fun participating in the many activities he enjoys. While most people were relaxing after the Christmas holidays, he was busy preparing to make ice carvings at First Night festivities in Boston and judging the National Ice Carving Association and Food Contest for the Boston Epicurean Club.

“This year First Night was a challenge with all the rain and cold weather,” Roberge said, noting that he has worked with Steve Rose, owner of Ice Effects, for over 35 years. “We have carved through all kinds of weather, but the faces on children who watch us at the Frog Pond on Boston Common and at the skating rink there makes it all worthwhile. I love talking to them and answering their questions,” he said.

Marlborough – Construction of a new senior center at Ward Park is continuing, according to Mayor Arthur Vigeant’s office, despite a lawsuit against the city brought by the park’s neighbors.

The suit, filed in Middlesex Superior Court, alleges that the city of Marlborough did not comply with various state regulations when it moved forward with planning and construction of the center, according to Julie McNeill, a Dracut attorney representing the plaintiffs.

“The city is constructing a senior center and associated parking lot on approximately 2.2 acres of Ward Park but has not complied with the proper procedures to do so,” the suit reads, in part.

Michael and Faith Nickolas, Ned Fenstermacher, and Paul Brodeur, who live adjacent to the park, are listed as plaintiffs.
