Santa Flies Again! (Weather Permitting)

Helicopter to Bring Santa to Southborough on December 3

 

Southborough, MA:  Southborough Kindergroup will kick off the holiday season with their 34th annual “Santa Day.”  As in previous years, the jolly old elf will land his helicopter on the front field at St. Mark’s School in Southborough (on the corner of Route 85 and Main Street) at noon on Saturday, December 3.  Accompanied by his elves, Santa will head to the Southborough Community House from 12-3pm where children can have their picture taken with Santa, sit on his lap and share their Christmas wish lists. 

The entrance fee to see Santa at the Community House event is $5 per child or $10 per family, photo included.  (This year we are also requesting that families consider bringing a non-perishable food item for our local food pantry to help those in need this season.)  While awaiting their turns, families will have the opportunity to participate in crafts, listen to holiday music, and enjoy refreshments.   Musical entertainment will be provided by Carrie Rowan and her Merry Go Music Pals. 

This annual event is organized by Southborough Kindergroup and sponsored by local businesses. Southborough Kindergroup is a cooperative play group for preschool children and their parents. For more information regarding membership, go to www.kindergroup.com

 

First Community Church of Southborough Pie Sale

Annual                  awards,desserts,dining,food,pastries,pies,prizes,ribbons,special occasions,treats                         Sale  

 If You Bake It, They Will Come

Our annual Church Pie Sale, will be held on Saturday, November 19, from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM or until we are “sold out.”  Just in time for Thanksgiving Day, the pie sale is held at Mauro's (the old McCarthy's i.e. “The Spa”) in downtown Southborough with tables set up outdoors.  Weather conditions have ranged from the balmy 50’s to the frigid teens with brisk winds.  The pie hawkers are shaded by the building and bundle up appropriately.

Over the years, we have been very fortunate to have a good variety of pies available for sale.  We are often asked which pie was made by a particular, well known, chef.  The people who have bought pies from our previous sales know just what they are looking for -- blueberry, lemon meringue, banana cream, and the always popular “apple pie.”  All breads are an added delight. 

New Troop in Town

November 18, 2011 - There is a  new Kindergarten Daisy troop in town.   An Investiture ceremony was held yesterday at Finn where they all received their Daisy tunics or vests for the first time.  There are 23 girls in the troop.  Helping at the meeting and with the ceremony was Kristina Arroyo, Amy Yazdani & Wendy DesMichaelis.

Our Month, Our Moment

November is an important time in our movement.

Across the country, in homes, community centers, legislatures and even the White House, Americans are coming together to acknowledge National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.

We honor the millions who have Alzheimer's and other dementias and the millions more who work tirelessly to provide care for their loved ones.

Join us in honoring National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month and help in the fight to accelerate critical Alzheimer's research. Take a moment and ask your member of Congress to cosponsor the Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act.

You can help remind our elected officials in the halls of Congress that this is a disease that deserves not just recognition one month out of the year but must be a national priority year round.

Challenges from the Frontlines
On November 8, the Alzheimer's Association released a major report, Alzheimer's from the Frontlines: Challenges a National Alzheimer's Plan Must Address, at a briefing on Capitol Hill.

With a room in the U.S. Capitol filled to capacity, attendees heard from Alzheimer's Association President and CEO Harry Johns, Alzheimer's Ambassador Garrett Davis, and Vice President of Public Policy Robert Egge on the passage of the National Alzheimer's Project Act, the Association's public input process, and report findings respectively. Copies of the report have been shared with all members of Congress and key committee offices, as well as with the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services.

More than 43,000 Americans – and 134 congressional offices – participated in the public input process through 132 public input sessions, online comments, and a national Telephone Town Hall. These efforts brought together those with Alzheimer's, caregivers, providers, researchers, health care professionals, community leaders, and many other stakeholders to identify the most critical challenges that must be addressed by the National Alzheimer's Plan.

Thanks to your contributions during this broad public input process, these policy recommendations carry even more weight with our national leaders and identify key themes that our nation must address if we are to successfully tackle the challenges of Alzheimer's. Learn more about the report, download a copy, and find a factsheet specific to your state at www.alz.org/NAPA.

Do You Know a Caregiver?
Have a friend, family member or co-worker who is a primary caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s? In honor of National Patient Caregiver Month, please share this message and ask them to lend their voice to our movement. By signing up to receive vital action alerts and email messages from the Alzheimer’s Association they will be taking an important step towards advancing the fight against this disease.

CHANGES IN PURCHASING 2012 SPORTING LICENSES AND CHECKING GAME

MassWildlife moves to all-electronic sales of licenses in 2012 and adds opportunity to check harvested game online with MassFishHuntsystem.

To eliminate paperwork, save postage and printing costs, and to provide sportsmen and sportswomen with 24-hour licensing and game reporting services, the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) is announcing that all licenses and permits will be obtained electronically from either a home computer, participating license vendor, or from a DFW office.  Licenses, stamps, and permits for the 2012 calendar year will be available for purchase in early December.

“The Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) has been selling licenses, permits, and stamps online for over a decade,” said Wayne MacCallum, Director of the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. “By replacing the traditional handwritten licenses with MassFishHunt,sportsmen get one-stop immediate online purchase of licenses, stamps, and most game permits and easy reprinting of damaged or lost licenses, tags, permits, and stamps.” MacCallum noted that license buyers with a computer, printer, and access to the internet will experience additional benefits:  purchasing and printing of licenses, permits, or stamps any time of day or night; reporting game harvest online; receiving important updates and messages; and participating in sportsmen’s surveys from the Division via email.

Online computer users can visit MassFishHunt atwww.mass.gov/massfishhunt at any time of day or night to make their purchases. A credit card, access to a printer, and plain white paper for printing is all that is needed. Licenses, stamps, and permits will also be available for sale at DFW district offices, the Westborough Field Headquarters and the DFW Boston office, as well as participating license vendors, including all Wal-Mart and Dick’s Sporting Goods stores in Massachusetts. Some municipal clerks and other local businesses will also continue to sell licenses. The difference at these traditional venues is that the license will be computer generated. Lists of 2012 license vendors are available at DFW offices and online atwww.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/recreation/licensing/vendors/license_vendors.htm.

 “If the purchase venues mentioned are inconvenient, consider visiting a public library to purchase your license, permits, and stamps,” says Marion Larson, DFW Outreach Coordinator. “If you don’t own a computer or use one, your community library most likely provides computers and printers with internet access. Knowledgeable library staff often assist people unfamiliar with using computers. All you need is your credit card.” One final suggestion from Larson, “Be a good sport by offering to help your computer–phobic friend or family member to purchase their license online. That way you can ensure that everyone will ready to enjoy the great outdoors together throughout the year!”

Minors ages 15-17 may obtain their free fishing license (new legislation effective for 2012) online, but due to certain documentation requirements, can only purchase a hunting or sporting license at a DFW office or official license vendor.   Sportsmen and women over 70 also can obtain their licenses online, through a license vendor, or at a DFW office. Lost or destroyed your license? You can either go online at home or to any license vendor or DFW office to access your, customer account and reprint your license.

Anyone who purchases licenses, permits, or stamps from an online computer will be charged a convenience fee of $1.50 per license plus a 3% credit card handling fee. The convenience fee pays for the development and maintenance of the MassFishHunt system. If purchases are made from any license vendor (except DFW offices) only the $1.50/license fee will be charged. No convenience or commission fee is charged when purchasing a license at DFW offices. Credit cards are not accepted at DFW offices. As in the past, if purchasing a license from a participating license vendor or town/city hall, license buyers may be charged a separate commission. Public libraries usually charge a nominal fee for printing.

Archery, primitive firearms, and waterfowl stamps will no longer be produced as “stamps”. With MassFishHunt, the collector-style stamps will no longer be produced.  Instead a notation on hunting and sporting licenses will include information that the required “stamps” were purchased. 

Bear and turkey hunters will have the ability to immediately print out their permits and tags when they purchase their license, whether online or at a license vendor. Antlered deer tags are printed out automatically with a hunting/sporting license purchase. Antlerless deer permit applications must still be electronically submitted by July 16 either online or at any license vendor. In addition, applicants will have to go back online or to a license vendor during a designated random instant awards selection and sales period to see if they are selected for an antlerless permit. More details on the antlerless deer permit selection process will be provided later in 2012. The MassFishHunt system eliminates having to mail in an application and wait for permits to arrive via postal mail.

Woodcock and waterfowl hunters are still required to complete a Harvest Information Program (HIP) survey.  The traditional telephone survey will no longer be offered, instead the survey will be administered online or survey questions will be asked by the license vendor. Hunters will not be assigned a HIP number; instead a “HIP Survey completed” notation will be printed on the hunting/sporting license. This notation is all that is needed to show proof that the survey was completed.

Finally, the last change for 2012 involves a new method to report or check in game.  Successful hunters will have the option to report deer, turkey, bears, or furbearers either electronically (online or at a license vendor) or at a traditional check station. If game is checked at a traditional check station, an official seal will be attached to the animal. The seal must remain on the animal until it is butchered, skinned, or otherwise processed. If checking or reporting using the online MassFishHunt system, hunters can check in or report their harvest from any online computer (home, library, etc.) with internet access. Using this system the DFW anticipates that in 2012 hunters will fill out an online form asking the same information sportsmen have always been asked to provide at traditional game check stations.  A number will immediately be generated for that animal which must be written by the hunter on the tag attached to the animal. This is the “official seal” required by law. One exception to this process will be during the shotgun season for deer, when harvested deer will be required to taken to a traditional check station for DFW biologists to gather biological data. More details on new checking/reporting procedures will be available in time for the 2012 hunting season. 

“There will be some adjustments for all of us during this time of transition,” said Wayne MacCallum. “The Division will monitor the new system and make necessary changes and improvements over time. The MassFishHunt system strikes a balance by accommodating and offering benefits to the sportsmen and women of the Commonwealth. We appreciate the support and understanding of sportsmen and women during this period of change, and look forward to improving service to license holders while continuing to provide sound stewardship of our state’s fish and wildlife populations and the habitats on which they depend.”

Questions and further details about these changes for 2012 can be answered at DFW District offices located in Ayer (978) 772-2145; Belchertown (413) 323-7632; Bourne (508) 759-3406; Dalton (413) 684-1646; West Boylston (508) 835-3607; or by calling the Westborough Field Headquarters (508) 389-6300 or Boston office (617) 626-1590.  Details are also available on a Frequently Asked Questions link at www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/recreation/licensing/faqs_licenses_harvest.htm

November 15, 2011 - The local pro lacrosse team, the Boston Cannons, won the championship this summer for the first time. Similar to the Stanley Cup, the players get to take the trophy for some days. The Captain of the team is Mitch Belisle (former captain of Cornell when he was in college). He has brought the trophy (called the Steinfeld Trophy), out to Southborough last night.  Here Captain Belisle is shown with several youngsters who showed up to have pizza and see the trophy.  Many brought items for the Cannons Captain to sign.

 

Cancer Pavilion at Marlborough Hospital Capital Campaign

Goal of $1.5 Million Announced

Long Time Southborough Resident to Chair Campaign

Marlborough – (November 15, 2011) – A capital campaign to raise $1.5 million in support of the construction of a state-of-the-art Cancer Pavilion at Marlborough Hospital has been announced by Douglas Brown, the hospital’s interim president and CEO. The campaign will be led by former chairman of the Marlborough Hospital Board of Trustees Cornelius “Neil” Ferris who is also a former long time resident of Southborough, MA.

 

The new facility will be attached to the north side of the existing Marlborough Hospital and is an expansion of the UMass Memorial Health Care Cancer Center of Excellence located in Worcester. The new center will provide expanded cancer services to the local community and has an estimated construction cost of $12.7 million.

 

"This Cancer Pavilion will provide the opportunity for our patients to receive state-of-the-art high-quality coordinated radiation and medical oncology services in their local community," said  Brown. “We will be combining the skills and knowledge of multidisciplinary teams of cancer specialists from both Marlborough Hospital and from the UMass Memorial Health Care Cancer Center of Excellence at one location which will be so convenient for our patients and their families.”

 

 “Our mission is to have the Cancer Pavilion be a center of treatment, care and hope for our cancer patients and the family members who care for them,” said Ferris. “We will rely on the resources and financial support of many individuals, organizations, businesses and foundations to make our dream of providing great cancer care a reality.”

 

The Cancer Pavilion will be approximately a 15,000 square-foot addition that will house cancer care services including medical oncology, radiation oncology, patient exam space and a beautiful healing garden.  Groundbreaking for the new facility is scheduled for early 2012 and is scheduled for completion in early 2013.

 

“I am confident that the wonderful and generous people from our community will come forth and help us build the new Cancer Pavilion at Marlborough Hospital. Those who have been touched by cancer especially understand how valuable a nearby center will be for those dealing with ongoing treatments. We will all band together to provide a ‘beacon of hope’ for our family, friends, coworkers and neighbors who have been touched by cancer,” continued Ferris.

 

For more information on how to support the new facility, call 508-486-5807 or email Ellen.carlucci@umassmemorial.org
