Bluegrass based; but pulls in Jazz, Country, Rock, and Blues, and it
doesn't stop there. We're just playing tunes we like, and having a
blast doing it!  We have six pieces in the band, and are playing
instruments typically used in a Bluegrass configuration. Most of our
tunes feature 2, 3, or 4-part vocal harmonies."

The Beals’ Preserve is located “down the Lane” on the south side of Main St opposite Chestnut Hill Rd.

Be Aware of unregistered Solicitors

On the Reverse 911 system last night, Southborough Police advised local residents about a group of young solicitors using very strong tactics.  Here is what was on the recording

The Southborough Police Department would like to alert its citizens about a possible scam involving young adults soliciting door to door selling magazines using high-pressure techniques to coerce citizens into handling over cash and checks. Some successful ploys include money for my little league team or money for my school. This company has not registered with the Southborough Police Department. So use caution and contact us at 508-485-2121.

Massachusetts Police Chiefs Walk Boston Marathon route in Memory of Southborough Chief of Police Lost to Cancer

Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk is Sept. 13

BOSTON ­–– Jimmy Fund LogoOn September 13, more than 50 police chiefs from across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will walk together on the historic course of the Boston Marathon® to raise money for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

This year’s Walk carries a particularly important meaning for the chiefs as they will walk in honor of Chief Bill Webber, the Southborough chief of police who lost his life to pancreatic cancer in October 2008. Webber was a dedicated supporter of the Jimmy Fund for many years, walking annually since 2003, and even participating as a Virtual Walker in last September’s Walk, just a month before he passed away.

Webber was only 53 when pancreatic cancer claimed his life. He battled the disease for 18 months. His wife, Kathleen, and two children, Kevin Webber and Kathleen Barry, will walk 26.2 miles as a part of Team Police Chiefs.

“A lot of chiefs were walking before me, and a lot of chiefs will walk after me,” says team co-captain John Creighton, retired Uxbridge Chief of Police. “Coming in contact with the patients and their families, we see their hope and optimism. To be a part of that is an honor.”

The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk has been important to the Chiefs for 21 years. Some years, the chiefs have held an across-the-state relay run leading up to the Walk and then walked the last three miles from the Jimmy Fund Clinic with patients and their families. Over the years, the Chiefs have collectively raised $100,000 for cancer research and treatment by walking.

On September13, the chiefs will lace up their sneakers along with 8,000 other walkers from Massachusetts and 28 states across the country who will walk with the goal of raising $6 million for cancer research at Dana-Farber. Over the past 20 years, the Walk has raised more than $60 million for Dana-Farber.

Massachusetts Chiefs of Police chose the Jimmy Fund as their official charity in 1953. The chiefs also show their support through the Hall of Badges, which showcases 200 police badges from across the Commonwealth and is on display at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

To register or make financial contributions for the 21st annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, visit www.jimmyfundwalk.org  or call (866) JF-1-WALK.

Please join Clare Curran-Ball in her walk to end Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's is a devastating disease not for the one so much that has the disease but those left behind that are the caregiver, family member or friend of the one who has it.  My mom had a very lucid moment last week and knew who I was for just a few minutes. It was the first time in nearly two years that she actually could talk of her first born.  Mom doesn't know that she has the disease but my brother, sisters and I do and it can hurt so much to see her like that knowing that she would hate living like this.  Mom is not alone and Alzheimer's patients are being diagnosed earlier and faster.  It's time we learn more about the disease and how to stop or at least slow it down.  Click here for Clare's Team Page.

Cummings School to Host Open House September 12, 2009

Animal Demos, Hospital Tours and Free Admission

Raptors will take flight in the new Agnes Varis Auditorium and an expected crowd of thousands will gather to learn about all the furry, galloping and ruminating animals at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine's annual Open House, September 12 from 11am to 3pm. The event is free and open to the public, rain or shine.

Canines of all types will demonstrate their prowess in working dog demonstrations. The animals of the Cummings School's working farm will also be available to meet and greet visitors and kids of all ages are welcomed to bring their beloved but bedraggled stuffed animals to be stitched or bandaged at the Teddy Bear Clinic. Admissions counselors will also be on-hand to answer questions about veterinary school, along with our programs in Adventures in Veterinary Medicine for those who want to learn firsthand about being a veterinarian.

In addition, self-guided tours of the school's Henry and Lois Foster Hospital for Small Animals, Hospital for Large Animals and campus farm will show visitors how the Cummings School teaches students and cares for more than 28,000 animals per year. What's more, the school will also be bringing back hay rides—a wonderful way to enjoy a tour of the school's 600-acre campus without “hoofing” along the sidewalks.

Handicapped parking is available on-campus with free parking for everyone.

For the protection of sick animals in our hospitals, and for everyone's safety, pets will not be allowed on campus for Open House.

For more information, call (508) 839-5395 or visit the Open House web page.

            The Iron Workers resumed their regular season play traveling to Wayland to take on the Gray Sox and took both ends of the doubleheader 11 – 7 and 8 – 5.  Marlboro’s offense was led by Dennis Naylor and Pete Mirabella both going 4 for 5 .

           The Friends of the Marlboro Seniors traveled to Shrewsbury and split a doubleheader losing the 1st 6 – 3 and winning the 2nd 3 – 2.  Marlboro’s offense was led by Jeff Allen 4 for 5 and Ron Saloman 2 for 4.

           The team records for the year Iron Workers Local #7 are 26 – 7 and the Friends of the Marlboro Seniors is 10 – 14.
