The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) today sent 21 state
northern Quebec to help
battle the wildfires that have been raging across that Canadian
province since June 19.
DCR Commissioner Richard K.
Sullivan Jr. responded to a request from the Northeastern
Forest Fire Protection
Compact for a crew from the Commonwealth. The DCR firefighters will
join crews from other New
England states in a rural area near Hudson Bay, about
north of Quebec City. The
area has seen more than 30 recent lightning strikes, causing
fires that have been
burning for nearly a week.
“We are extremely proud of
the DCR firefighters who have been called upon to help the
province of Quebec,” said
DCR Commissioner Sullivan. “These are extremely well-trained
and dedicated firefighters
whose skills are needed there, and whose help, we know, is
Massachusetts has been
sending firefighters to help other states since 1985. The firefighters in

The DCR crew is called a
“Type 2 hand crew,” and will engage in direct fire suppression.
Crew members will work on
the fire line building fire breaks, securing fire perimeters,
containing fires, and
protecting structures. For the most part, the firefighters will sleep in
on the ground in fire
The Northeastern Forest
Fire Protection Compact is a partnership among the six New England
states, New York, and the
Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova
Scotia, and Quebec. The
Quebec Society for the Prevention of Forest Fires (La Société de
Protection des Forêts
Contre le Feu) will pay all expenses of the out-of-state crews, including
lodging, and food.

Southborough Rotary to begin Night Meetings
SOUTHBOROUGH, MA- June 23, 2009- While a morning meeting has
worked well for many of the members of the Southborough Rotary Club, there
has been interest expressed both by members and prospective members alike in
holding a monthly meeting of the club in the evening. Starting July 7th,
the club will hold a meeting on the first Tuesday of each month at Owen
O'Leary's on Route 9 in Southborough at 6:30PM.
According to club president Pam O'Donnell, “Unlike our
regular morning meeting, we expect the evening meetings to be more social in
nature. Besides being keenly interested in public service, we are all
friends, so we are looking forward to meeting in a less formal setting where
we can enjoy each other's company without the normal time constraints of the
morning meeting. We hope that others who are interested in community service
will stop by and get to know us and learn more about Rotary.”
Rotary International is the world's first service club
organization, with more than 1.2 million member in 33,000 clubs worldwide.
Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally and
internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide
education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the
motto “Service Above Self.” Individuals who are interested in community
service or learning more about Rotary are encouraged to attend meetings of
the Southborough Rotary Club. For additional information go to
Miss “A Year With Frog and Toad, Kids”
A nearby afternoon show designed to delight audiences of all ages is “A
Year With Frog and Toad, Kids,” a stage musical about the year-long
adventures two friends experience together. The Broadway version was
nominated for three Tony awards including Best Musical. It is based on
Arnold Lobel’s award-winning books.
The only local performance is Friday, July 17th at 1 p.m. in the
air-conditioned, wheelchair-accessible Hudson High School Auditorium, 69
Brigham Street. All tickets are $5. To order, call the Arts Alliance at
978-562-1646. For more information visit:
Singing, dancing and acting in the fun production are area students in
grades 3-5 from Bolton, Hudson, Littleton, Marlborough, Maynard,
Northborough, Shrewsbury and Stow. Christine DiScipio of Hudson is directing
this Theater Too! production, part of the Summer Drama Workshop program that
the Arts Alliance, a local 501(c)(3) charitable organization, has been
successfully running for the past 21 years. The popular theater arts
education program offers something for area students ranging from 6 to 19
years of age, even backstage. This summer 8 different workshops are
available, with some beginning in July and August. All instill an
appreciation of the arts and each other’s talents while teaching youngsters
how to cooperate and collaborate to put on great shows.
Conceived by Arnold Lobel's daughter, Adrianne Lobel, "A Year With Frog And
Toad, Kids" remains true to the spirit of the original stories as it follows
two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad
through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they
proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, make cookies with
the Birds, prepare dinner with Mouse, and sing with the Moles, learning life
lessons along the way, including a most important one about friendship.
Through the story the friends are able to rejoice in the attributes that
make each creature different and special, whether a squirrel, turtle,
lizard, snail or person. It is a worthwhile treat for the whole family or
Carolyn Alzapiedi of Hudson is music director for “A Year With Frog and
Toad, Kids.” Kristen Benjamin Grillo and Peter Worrest are assistants in

The Friends of the Marlborough Seniors Softball Team went
1 for 4 for the week.
Friends dropped two to the Worcester Falcons “B” by the scores of 12 to 9
and 11 to 7. Ed Beauchemin pitched vainly in both games. Strong hitting by
Jim Raymond , Bill Stone, Larry Kron and Bob Clark each of whom contributed
3 hits was not enough to offset the Worcester offense. Game 2 was closely
contested and tied at 7 going into the last inning when Worcester muster 4 runs.
After getting 20 hits in game 1 the Marlborough Team was only able to put
together 13 hits in the 2nd game. Joe Tambascio, Emory Payne, Bill Stone
and Paul Starek each had 2 hits.
The Friends then hosted the team from Shrewsbury. In a scintillating 1st game
prevailed in 8 innings 13 to 11. Jim Raymond had a game for the ages
getting five hits in five trips to the plate including two triples and a
homerun., while Larry Kron chipped in with a triple and two singles Once
again the Marlborough Seniors mustered 20 hits but did not prevail. Game 2
was a different story suddenly the defense shined and with timely hitting Marlborough won 9 to 6.
Bob Clark, Larry Kron, Paul Starek and team manager Ron Saloman each had 3
hits. Bill Stone was pushed into pitching these games and did a commendable
job, both of the team's regular pitchers were unavailable.
