Wenzel: Marlborough Rotary holds annual Italian Night

MARLBOROUGH – The Rotary Club of Marlborough held its annual Italian Night May 22 at the Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church with some 100 people enjoying the salad, pasta, sauce, meatballs, sausage and homemade desserts. The 500 meatballs were crafted into precise 2.0 ounces, each, by a Rotarian committee consisting of Elaine McDonald, Doug Palino, Heather Johnston, Darlene Trainor and George Mongeau.


COLOR KILLER, with its pop/punk music, will kick off the 2024 Marlborough Summer Concert Series in Union Common on Thursday, June 13, at 7 p.m. The series of nine concerts will be great entertainment for the whole family. Presented by Mayor Christian Dumais and the Marlborough Recreation Department, admission is free. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the concert with family and friends. The concerts are being held Thursday evenings, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the corner of Main and Bolton (Rte. 85) streets, Marlborough. Local breweries are on site each week to provide adult refreshments to those who wish to partake. On June 20, Dom V & The Swing Out Band will perform.

“A PASTA DINNER FUNDRAISER,” sponsored by the Marlborough Sons and Daughters of Italy #240, was the occasion to present 2024 Sons of Italy Scholarships. Held at the Moose Lodge, Rose King, Alex Tockman and Mallory Farrell were announced as winners.

ON JUNE 14, 2024 (Flag Day) at 4:30 P.M. at the Marlborough Public Library, Marlborough, there will be a Medal of Liberty Ceremony hosted by the Marlborough Historical Society.

There will be 13 Medals of Liberty awarded to families from casualties from World War I, World War II and Korea. Also, being honored are three Medals of Fidelity to the families of three men from Marlborough who died from exposure to agent orange.

MARLBOROUGH’S WADING Pools, Splash Pads, and Memorial Beach will be opening up soon. The splash pads will be (tentatively) opening June 3 and pools will be (tentatively) opening June 21. Both are “tentative” in the case of system issues, as these types of facilities are complex to regulate. Memorial Beach opens to the public on June 10.

THIS YEAR, 32 Marlborough High School seniors are earning the MA Seal of Biliteracy, an award for students who demonstrate high levels of fluency and literacy in two languages. Three students are earning the Seal of Biliteracy with distinction, an award reserved for those with top test scores.

CONGRATULATIONS to Marlborough High School senior Parker Rogers for being named “Outstanding Male Athlete” at a recent track meet. Parker set a new meet record in the discus, showcasing his incredible talent and hard work. Parker is to attend the University of South Carolina.

JAWOREK SCHOOL recently hosted a heartfelt outdoor ceremony in honor of Memorial Day, attended by family, friends, and veterans. Under the direction of music teacher Meg Defazio, the entire student body performed to pay tribute to our veterans. This year’s event was particularly special as it marked Ms. Defazio’s final program before her retirement at the end of this school year. Former colleagues also joined to participate and wish her well.
