Wenzel: Senior Center holds ice cream social, Eagle Scouts recognizedMARLBOROUGH – “I Scream… You Scream … We All Scream for Ice Cream” was the cry at the “Ice Cream Social” held July 7 at the Marlborough Senior Center.

Marlborough residents joined others for free vanilla ice cream and a choice of toppings including syrups, sprinkles and whipped cream. As friends mingled with friends, they stayed cool as they enjoyed the frozen dessert.

Marlborough Fire Chief Kevin Breen was a special guest who topped the sundaes with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. In addition, he walked around to add more of
the fluffy white confection to sundaes. Assistant Fire Chief Jeffrey Emanuelson helped with dishing out the ice cream.

MARLBOROUGH MAYOR ARTHUR VIGEANT recently recognized Andrew Fisher, Erik Corbin and Peter DeCruz from Troop 2 who advanced to the rank of Eagle Scout. This rank is only achieved by four percent of all scouts by earning 21 merit badges and completing an Eagle Scout project. Congratulations on this achievement.

THE REV. JOSEPH GRAUMANN, pastor of Marlborough’s St. Stephen Lutheran Church, said goodbye to members on June 26 as he goes to a new church in New Jersey. A “Litany of Godspeed and Farewell” capped the worship service, which also included anthems by the voice and bell choirs. The church presented him with a handmade quilt with a cross design, created by several quilters and signed on the back by almost everyone in the congregation. A second gift was a clerical stole, on its way to Pastor Joe’s new church home in the Garden State. A reception followed.
