Marlborough - One of the few places large groups of first responders congregate is at the funerals of their fallen colleagues. Mike Matros, a Sudbury firefighter and Marlborough native, has worked to change that over the past year with the “Heroes Cup” he helped found.
Westborough - For the last 10 years, Dave McGrath of Westborough has been Hope Lodge’s live-in night manager. But McGrath was more than just a manager there.

Shrewsbury – For years, Anthony “Spag” Borgatti oversaw his legendary retail establishment located on Route 9, not far from Lake Quinsigamond and the Worcester border. Known for his great deals as well as his dedication to Shrewsbury and its residents, Borgatti was beloved by all and to this day, casts a very long shadow. But after in the years following his death, the once bustling commercial site saw a series of retailers come and go, each hoping for just a small slice of Spag’s success. Sadly, during recent years, the nearly 23 acre parcel sat dormant, waiting for its next chapter.
