Generosity

The Southborough CERT and MRC teams recently collected donations of furniture, household goods, monetary donations and personal items for victims of the June tornado in the Springfield area.  They collected at the transfer station and the fire department from June 27 to July 10.  Eagle Leasing donated a 53’ trailer to store the goods which were cataloged, inventoried and checked for working condition prior to loading.  Ted’s of Fayville donated a truck, driver and fuel to haul the trailer out to Springfield. There were over 4,000 items collected and over $1000 in checks and money orders (which they will still accept).

Ongoing collection of Monetary Donations:

  • We are still collecting monetary donations

  • Checks / Money Orders ONLY

  • Make Checks Payable To: CERT & MRC of Southborough, Inc.

  • Address: P.O. Box 685, Southborough, MA 01772

  • Monies will be converted into bank cards and distributed to victims/support organizations directly.

The items and monetary donations went to the following:

  • Council of Churches of Greater Springfield - Family Life Services

  • Encompasses 300+ Multi-Denominational churches throughout Western Massachusetts

  • Archbishop, Timothy Paul

  • Basilica of Holy Apostles, 339 State Street, Springfield

  • Donations will be sent to any one of their 14 distribution centers (churches) throughout the Greater Springfield area

Southborough CERT and MRC are two separate groups but have joined together as one
team with he same goal; helping our own community and emergency services. We also deploy
regionally and state-wide. In Southborough, both teams work together as one unit called
CERT/MRC. The group is comprised of both medical and non medical professional residents.

Southborough is a small community with the need for volunteers at a large scale incident or
disaster be it natural, biological, or man -made. Emergency services would be tied up almost
instantly. We, as trained volunteers, assist emergency operations at and away from the incident.
In non-emergency events such as a parade, affair, or road race for public and private agencies,
our volunteers have assisted emergency services with traffic control, first aid, safety and more.

Members have completed numerous trainings, with cross-training offered to all, and is provided
by Southborough, Massachusetts and Federal Emergency Management Agencies, Massachusetts
Department of Public Health, the Red Cross, and other agencies. Some of the training has
included Shelter Operations and Management, Post Disaster Damage Assessment and Post
Disaster Mental Health Awareness. They are also extensively trained in the National Incident
Management System.  The group is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization.

Watering Tips for high heat!

Watering can

The next fews days our weather is predicted to get close to 100 degrees...summer has arrived in full swing!

 

Keep your flowers well watered, and put containers in the shade if possible.  Water your plants twice a day...morning and evening.  Soak them heavily!  Do not fertilize dry, stressed out plants.  Hanging plants need lots of water too, so water them until the water drips out of the bottom. 

 

Vegetable plants will be helped by creating a small reservoir around the base of the plant to help the water "sink in" to the roots faster.  Good luck and happy growing!

MEMA ADVISES CAUTION DURING THIS EXTREMELY HOT WEATHER

 

With the extremely hot weather the Commonwealth is experiencing, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is advising people to be cautious and is offering some tips to help keep cool and safe. 

 

“A few common sense measures can reduce heat-related problems, especially for the elderly, the very young and people with respiratory ailments, who are more susceptible to the effects of high temperatures,” said MEMA Director Kurt Schwartz. “Here are some tips to follow to stay safe during this hot, humid weather.”

 

·    Slow down, avoid strenuous activity.  Do not try to do too much on a hot day.

·    Wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing.  Light colors will reflect heat and sunlight and help maintain normal body temperature. Protect your face with a wide-brimmed hat.

·    Drink plenty of water regularly and often, even if you do not feel thirsty. Attempt to stay hydrated.

·    Limit intake of alcoholic beverages.  They can actually dehydrate your body.

·    Eat well-balanced, light, regular meals.  Avoid high protein foods that increase metabolic heat.

·    Stay indoors as much as possible. 

·    If you do not have air conditioning, stay on your lowest floor, out of the sun.  Electric fans do not cool the air, but they do help evaporate perspiration, which cools your body.

·    Go to a place where you can get relief from the heat, such as air conditioned schools, libraries, theaters and other community facilities that may offer refuge during the warmest times of the day.

·    Check with your community for information about possible local ‘cooling centers’. You may also want to call 2-1-1 for ‘cooling center’ information or go to www.mass211.org.

·    Cover windows that receive morning or afternoon sun with drapes, shades, awnings or louvers.  Outdoor awnings or louvers can reduce the heat that enters a home by up to 80%.

·    Avoid too much sunshine.  Sunburn slows the skin’s ability to cool itself.  If you are outside, use sunscreen lotion with a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) rating.

·    Never leave children or pets alone in a closed vehicle.

·    Check on family, friends and neighbors.

 

In normal weather, the body’s internal thermostat produces perspiration that evaporates and cools the body.  However, in extreme heat and high humidity, evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain normal temperature, which may lead to heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.  If you believe you, or anyone you are with, is experiencing a heat-related medical emergency, promptly call 911, and if possible, move to a cooler place.

Caring For Your Pets in the Hot Weather

As the summer heat approaches, here are some preparedness tips to consider when caring for your pets:

·        Never leave pets in a car, even with the windows down.  The inside of a car can reach temperatures in excess of 150 degrees in a matter of minutes.

·        If possible, pets should be kept indoors during excessive heat.

·        If keeping a pet outside, make sure that pets have adequate shelter from the sun and plenty of fresh water at all times.

·        Plan outside activities with your pets during the cooler parts of the day:  early morning and evening.  Limit the outside activity of your pets during the heat of the day.

·        During hot weather sidewalks and pavement radiate excessive amounts of heat and can be too hot for the pads of your pet's paws.  Consider that if the sidewalk is too hot for you to walk barefoot, it is too hot for your pet to walk on.

·        Allow access to the coolest part of your home. If you don’t have air conditioning, or you turn it off while at work, make sure your pet can get to a cool place, such as a basement.

·        Take extra precautions in hot weather for dogs that are elderly, overweight or snub-nosed.

·        Always have a disaster plan in place for you, your family and your pets.

·        Remember, WHEN YOU GO, THEY GO.  DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM.  If you are told to evacuate, take your pets with you.  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PETS BEHIND.

Imagine creating a family when your spouse's cultural values are not 
 aligned with your own cultural values.  Cross-cultural marriages are 
 an increasing norm in our country.  Or imagine working with people 
 from other cultures whose work ethic is different than your own.  
 Consider that Massachusetts has the second largest Brazilian 
 population in the country!  Living among different cultures is 
 challenging in marriages and in the workplace.
 
 Visit ConnectingPoint Church on Sunday July 31 at 10AM as Pastor Paul 
 Lantz explains the challenges and opportunities of living in a cross 
 cultural world.  Paul, an American that grew up in Detroit, was the 
 first American to graduate from a Lutheran Seminary in Brazil. 
 (Seminario Concordia, Sao Leopoldo, Rio Grande do Sul).  His wife, 
 Rosangela, was born in Brazil and they have three children.  Pastor 
 Paul and Rosangela will share some tools and approaches to enhance

Great Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary

July 23, 10:30 AM - 2:30 PMCaterpillars of Great Meadows NWR — July Workshop

Enjoy a summer day exploring and studying these beautiful and secretive creatures of Great Meadows with Sam Jaffe, one of the areas leading authorities on eastern Massachusetts caterpillars, and local naturalist/photographer Cherrie Corey.

The program begins, in the refuge's maintenance shed, with an up close look and discussion of live collected caterpillars on their food plants, including a review of their lifecycles and natural history in Massachusetts. Following a lunch break, participants will be transported back to the parking lot for the field portion of the program. The remaining half of the workshop will be spent exploring the dike trail and parking lot edges for caterpillars, highlighting the various visual and habitat clues that lead to productive discoveries. Along the way, both Sam and Cherrie will also help ID the butterflies, moths, and associated food plants and flowers that are encountered.

Our discoveries will be helping to build the species lists for the refuge!

Registration is required. There is a fee of $45 per person for the workshop. The workshop is limited to 20 participants. The workshop will start in the parking lot at Great Meadows NWR, off Monsen Road, Concord, MA. Co-sponsored with Friends of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge.

For additional information and registration details, see sense-of-place-concord.blogspot.com. Or you can email or call Cherrie Corey (cherrie.corey@verizon.net, or 978-369-4289) for registration and payment details.

SHELTER-IN-PLACE FOR A HURRICANE

MEMA Offers Tips To Help Keep Your Family Safe

FRAMINGHAM, MA – “Shelter-in-Place is a standard protective action utilized in Emergency Management,” states Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency Director Kurt Schwartz. “It is most often used during an event in which hazardous materials have been accidentally released into the atmosphere, but also during other dangerous conditions, such as a severe storm, like a hurricane, when it is preferable to be indoors, not outside or on the road.”

If a hurricane approaches New England, state or local Public Safety Officials may instruct you to “Shelter-in-Place”.  As with Evacuations, you would be alerted in a variety of ways. Learn what methods are utilized in your community. They could include:

·        Outdoor sirens or horns.

·        The Emergency Alert System (EAS) - information provided on the radio and television.

·        National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Alert Radio.

·        ‘All Call’, ‘Reverse 911’ or ‘Code Red’ – one of a number of automated telephoning systems for sending recorded messages to which your community may subscribe.

·        News Media.

·        Residential Route Alerting, which dispatches Public Safety vehicles through neighborhoods announcing messages with Public Address systems or literally ‘knocking on doors”.

·        U.S. Coast Guard Marine Broadcast.

·        A message on Teletypewriters (TTY).

·        Social Media sources: Facebook, Twitter, etc.

The following are steps to be taken only when instructed to ‘Shelter-in-Place’, not to be completed ahead of time:

·        If instructed by Public Safety officials, you should immediately go indoors.

·        Close and lock all doors and windows. Locking is preferred since it generally ensures that the door or window is shut tight.

·        Close drapes, blinds and window shades.

·        Protect windows with pre-drilled plywood sheets.

 ·        Go to a room in the center of your home with the fewest windows and doors.

·        It is ideal to have a hard-wired telephone in the room you select.  Cellular telephone equipment may be overwhelmed during an emergency.

·        Do not call your local fire or police departments (9-1-1) for information.  Public Safety workers will need their lines open for emergency use.  Call your local Emergency Management Office or Mass2-1-1, which is available 24/7 to respond to your questions.

·        Take your Family Disaster Kit to that location.

·        Keep pets indoors. Make sure you have additional food and water supplies for them.

·        If you have livestock, shelter them, also.  Provide them with stored feed and water.

·        Continue to monitor your Emergency Alert Station (EAS) and other Media for official warnings, messages and instructions.

·        Stay inside until officials say otherwise.

·        If you are in your vehicle and are advised to ‘Shelter-in-Place’, and are very close to home, your office or a public building, go there immediately.   

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is the state agency responsible for coordinating federal, state, local, voluntary and private resources during emergencies and disasters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  MEMA provides leadership to: develop plans for effective response to all hazards, disasters or threats; train emergency personnel to protect the public; provide information to the citizenry; and assist individuals, families, businesses and communities to mitigate against, prepare for, and respond to and recover from emergencies, both natural and man made. For additional information about MEMA and Hurricane Preparedness, go to www.mass.gov/mema.  Follow MEMA updates on Facebook and Twitter.

Rebates Offered

Patrick-Murray Administration Reminds Customers Massachusetts Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program Launches July 28

Up to $200 in rebates offered per household on eligible refrigerator and room air conditioner replacements

BOSTON – July 15, 2011 – As part of the Patrick-Murray Administration’s commitment to helping homeowners and renters reduce their energy use, Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Commissioner Mark Sylvia reminded residents of the Massachusetts Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program set to launch on July 28, 2011.

DOER also announced that the call center line for questions about the program is now open to supplement the program’s website for those unable to access the Internet.

A follow-up to last year’s Great Appliance Exchange, the new program is open to all Massachusetts households, including those served by municipal light plants. Customers who purchase a new ENERGY STAR® refrigerator and/or room air conditioner to replace an inefficient model may qualify for rebates of $150 and $50, respectively.

“This program encourages the purchase of energy saving appliances, which cut long-term household costs and stimulate the local economy,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Richard K. Sullivan Jr.

 “Thanks to collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy, the state Department of Energy Resources and participating retail stores, this program will save customers money on their monthly electric bills while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by taking old, inefficient energy appliances off the grid," said DOER Commissioner Sylvia.

Rebates will be available on all ENERGY STAR® qualified refrigerators and room air conditioners, purchased on or after July 28; each purchaser must replace an existing refrigerator or room air conditioner to receive a rebate. Customers who participate and who are eligible will receive a $150 rebate for refrigerators and/or $50 for room air conditioners. Those households served by the Cape Light Compact, National Grid Electric, NSTAR Electric, Unitil, and Western Massachusetts Electric Company are also eligible for an already existing $50 Mass Save rebate on their ENERGY STAR® refrigerator purchase. (The Mass Save refrigerator rebate is available only through www.MassSave.com, not through this program.)

Prior to purchase, customers are encouraged to check how much rebate funding is available by going online to the rebate pgram website, www.MassEnergyRebates.com, where they’ll be able to track the status of funds and their own rebate applications. There will also be a customer service center available for those who don’t have access to the website. In addition, retailers can provide customers with real-time status of funding in-store.

 n June 20, Secretary Sullivan directed DOER to dedicate $100,000 under the Massachusetts Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program in targeted appliance rebate opportunities for residents of cities and towns hit by devastating tornados in June. Sullivan directed DOER to revamp the program to make it responsive to the needs of people whose homes and belongings – including, in many cases, appliances – have been damaged or destroyed. As a result, DOER is waiving appliance turn-in requirements and setting aside $100,000 of the $2 million rebate pool for residents of the tornado-impacted areas

Customers can follow the steps below to participate:

•Customers can confirm the real-time availability of rebate funds via the program’s website, the customer service phone line, or a registered retail location.

•Customers outside of the tornado zone who purchase a new ENERGY STAR® room air conditioner on or after July 28 must bring in their old unit for recycling at the time of purchase, and certify on their rebate application that they have traded their old one in. This return/recycling component is waived for customers from tornado-impacted communities.

•Customers who purchase a new ENERGY STAR® refrigerator on or after July 28 can accept delivery and have their old refrigerator removed at the same time. Those outside of the tornado zone must certify on their rebate application that their old refrigerator has been hauled away.

•Customers fill out a rebate application online, which places a hold on the requested funds. Those who apply via the customer service center will receive their completed application in the mail. The signed application, which includes certification that a refrigerator and/or room air conditioner has been traded in, is sent with proof of purchase(s) to Helgeson Enterprises Inc. The return/recycling component is waived for customers from tornado-impacted communities.

•Receipt and progress of the application can be tracked online or via the service center.

•Rebate payments will be sent via U.S. mail.

The 2011 Massachusetts Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is a limited time only offer that ends when the funding is fully exhausted. Funding is limited to $2 million and rebates are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Old appliances don't need to be in working condition when exchanged for more efficient models. They will be recycled after trade-in.

The program is funded by a combination of a US Department of Energy American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant, funding from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and funds available to promote energy efficiency from a nitrogen oxides (NOx) cap and trade program established to reduce ozone pollution. The program is expected to fund approximately 20,000 rebates worth $2 million and is estimated to save around 1.8 million kilowatt hours in a year, enough to power 250 homes for a year.

For more information on the program, visit www.MassEnergyRebates.com  or call toll-free (877) 574-112

Saturday,  September 24th, 2011
Algonquin Regional High School,  Northboro

Complete and return the REGISTRATION FORM before August 12th.

Thank You Central Mass AYFC for your support and this opportunity to
welcome our fellow conference cheerleaders into our gym!

 

Welcome to Algonquin Athletics!

At Algonquin Regional High School, there are tremendous opportunities waiting. In addition to high academic standards and a

variety of extracurricular activities, athletics play a major role in the lives of over 70% of the student body.

In order to participate in athletics there are some simple requirements. You must provide us with:

§ A current physical exam form (either the schools or your physician’s). A form is valid for 13 months from the

date of the physical. No exceptions or extensions to this rule will be made. A form must be valid for the start of

tryouts for any season a student wishes to participate in.

§ Athletic Permission Form - which must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian. Forms may be obtained

on the school website – www.nsboro.k12.ma.us/algonquin and click on (student forms) or at the high school

in the Principal’s Office.

§ Athletic Fee of $200 per season once the team has been selected. Acceptable payment methods: check, cash or

online on the school website.

The school nurse and/or the athletic department will be at the high school in the event lobby at the back of the school on the following

dates in order to receive physical exam forms and handout clearance cards to athletes.

Monday, August 22nd (8:00a – 10:00a)

(10:00a – 12:00p) All other sports

Wednesday, August 24th (1:00pm – 2:30pm) – following - Freshman Orientation

Thursday, August 25th (8:00a – 12:00p)

Tryouts for fall sports will begin on Monday, August 22nd for football, and Thursday, August 25th for all other sports. Depending

upon the number of candidates that try out for a team, cuts are a possibility in some sports. If a student is cut from a team, they

have the option to become a manager or scorekeeper for that team in order to remain an active participant in the program. Another

possibility is to try out for another fall sport team that does not have cuts or still has openings on their roster. Tryout schedules

will be posted on our Algonquin website under athletics.

I strongly encourage you to join the “team” at Algonquin. Participation in athletics provides students with an opportunity to

make new friends, improve your skills, compete at the interscholastic level, and have fun.

See you in the fall!
