  • 8/10 5:09pm   Hello, I wanted to share the sad news of my mother's passing on June 4. My mother, Mary Bremilst, was a lifelong resident of Norfolk and a long time business owner as well. Many, many of you will remember seeing her at our family's Family Florist shop on route 115. She was a true pioneer! Women did not own or run businesses in the 1950s, 60s or even the 70s. She was smart, savvy and tenacious when it came to our business. She was generous and loving when it came to being a mom. Her and my father were real icons in Norfolk. We will miss her and we shall continue on our family legacy. If you would like to make a donation in her memory, donations can be sent to King Philip Music Association, PO Box 508, Wrentham, MA 02093.

  • 7/29 4:30pm   The Norfolk Public Library will be offering a program called ``Anxious Teens, Worried Parents: Coping Strategies for Families'' on Tuesday, August 15 at 6:30pm. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the program will be led by Dr. Jamie Micco, Board Certified in Cognitive and Behavioral Psychology and author of recently published The Worry Workbook for Teens.
    This program will help middle and high school students and their parents distinguish between typical teen worries and excessive, difficult-to-control worries. Participants will learn how to challenge or let go of unhelpful thoughts and to develop strategies to cope with stressful situations, and parents will learn how to reinforce good coping skills without adding pressure to their teens.
    This program is free and open to the public. There is no registration required. Please visit the library's website at norfolkpl.org for more information.

  • 7/29 3:52pm   I want to thank the town of Norfolk, the Berkshire Valley Boys, and Berkshire Hathaway Realty for a fun night in the town center. I couldn't help thinking this is what our country is all about - neighbors living in peace and enjoying a fun night out with their families. The music was great, and both adults and kids were having a blast singing and dancing in the beautifully landscaped common. It made me realize just how lucky I am to have been born in this wonderful country - and to be living in a great town like Norfolk.

  • 5/21 11:27pm   I do piano Adult classes in Ivy Music Academy in Norfolk. I never played piano before, my children both play instruments in the King Philip Music and Freeman Kennedy. So I suppose you could say I got inspiration from them. I always wanted to learn piano but was either too busy, or not really thinking that I could. But after enrolling over a year ago, I am very happy to say that the school, especially Maral, the piano teacher, has given me that chance. Not only is she very patient, but kind and passionate about music. I would like to endorse the school.

  • 5/21 11:11pm   Weather forecast for Norfolk Community Day 2017: It will be raining golf balls at mid-afternoon!
    How would you like a chance to win up to $1000 or $250 and support local charities at the same time? Buy one of the Norfolk Lion's charity golf balls for $10.00. This year up to 250 numbered golf balls will be sold and two prizes will be awarded.
    Between 2:30 and 3:00 on Norfolk Community Day, all numbered balls will be placed in a container and dropped 40 feet from the top of the Norfolk Fire Dept ladder truck. The balls will fall onto a 100 foot circle painted on the grass with a pin in the center. The ball closest to the pin wins $1000 and the second closest ball wins $250. The remaining $1250 will be donated to Norfolk charities to be named at a later date.
    In the unlikely event of a tie, the winnings will be split. The Norfolk Police Dept will monitor judging. You do not have to be present to win.
    With only 250 balls sold, your odds of winning are fantastic, so hurry and get yours. The Norfolk Lions will be selling golf balls at the Norfolk Recycling/Transfer Station on Saturday, May 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. They will also be on sale at Community Day, if not already sold out.
    You must be 18 or older to participate. Norfolk Lions and their families are eligible to enter.

  • 4/16 3:39pm   NORFOLK - On Sunday, April 23, Metacomet Land Trust and Mass Audubon's Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary will host a free screening of the film Green Fire, the first full-length, high definition documentary film ever made about legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. The hour-long film will be shown at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 2:00 p.m.
    Leopold is the visionary conservationist whose essays ``A Sand County Almanac'' lay out his philosophy of how to live responsibly on the land. The film explores Aldo Leopold's life in the early part of the twentieth century and the many ways his concept of a ``land ethic'' continues to be applied all over the world today.
    Doug Williams, director of Mass Audubon's Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, commented ``I first read ``A Sand County Almanac'' when I was in my teens. At the time my interests led me to the woods, the lakes and streams near where I grew up. I was happiest when I was alone with the trees, the birds and fish without the distractions of friends and family.
    ``Through reading ``A Sand County Almanac'' I was reminded that people are a part of nature, that we are at once influenced by and conversely influence the natural world,'' Williams said. ``I reread ``A Sand County Almanac'' on a regular basis and am recharged, my spirit renewed, my love for the woods strengthened and my devotion to conserving the natural world for future generations reinvigorated. All life is miraculous and few authors convey that sentiment better than Aldo Leopold.''
    Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the US Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature. Although probably best known as the author of A Sand County Almanac, Leopold is also renowned for his work as an educator, philosopher, forester, ecologist, and wilderness advocate.
    Green Fire illustrates Leopold's continuing influence by exploring current projects that connect people and land at the local level. Viewers will meet urban children in Chicago learning about local foods and ecological restoration. They'll learn about ranchers in Arizona and New Mexico who maintain healthy landscapes by working on their own properties and with their neighbors, in cooperative community conservation efforts. They'll meet wildlife biologists who are bringing back threatened and endangered species, from cranes to Mexican wolves, to the landscapes where they once thrived. The Green Fire film portrays how Leopold's vision of a community that cares about both people and land--his call for a land ethic--ties all of these modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future.

  • 4/16 3:18pm   TO AC: Hello. I just read your post about cold air blowing in through your fireplace. We have the same problem here in my home with our Propane fireplace. We did employ one company to fix the problem but his efforts were ineffective! I was at the Home Show in Foxboro last week and took the card of a fireplace installer there who said he could address the problem. I left my name and contact information and I have his card as well. I haven't heard from him yet but it has been just 1 week.
    Did you find the solution to your problem and if so, I would appreciate the information. Also, if I hear from the man from the Home Show, I could pass the information on to you if you are still looking for a solution..
    Many thanks.

We are regulars at the recycling center and as long as you read the signs and listen to the guys working there, all is very easy and inexpensive. The person who charged you $5.00 was simply doing their job, not picking on you, as I read it. If he charged you $20 or more, maybe, but not at $5.00. They have a tough job many days, no need to make it harder.

  • 3/26 8:00pm   Norfolk Lions Community Day is June 3, 2017
    Save the date! June may seem like a long way off, but the Norfolk Lions Community Day team is already planning this annual event.
    This year's event resurrects the original ``Old Tyme Day'' theme from years past when times were a little slower and more affordable. Community Day 2017 will take place on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 11:00 until 4:00. Once again the Holmes Family has graciously agreed to host the event at their property at 22 Myrtle Street, Norfolk.
    This will be the Lions' 25th year bringing a day of family fun and entertainment so a Happy 25th Anniversary theme will also be a part of the day. The Lions' goal is to provide a country fair type environment including music, dancing, games, petting animals, hayrides, train rides, pie eating contest, foam for kids to play in, food and historical displays. This is an event for the entire Norfolk Community to come out, celebrate and get to know neighbors.
    The Lions welcome your participation and invite any Norfolk business, organization, neighborhood or group to participate in Community Day. Groups and organizations (including corporations) can take part in a number of ways, whether by setting up a booth or tent, sponsoring an activity or entertainment, or simply by becoming a sponsor.
    If you would like a booth, we do ask that you provide something in return. For example, if your company wants to have a booth, then you should have something to offer that will add to the fun such as a game or activity, or provide financial support that will be used towards other expenses. You can also sponsor an event or entertainment. We are flexible; just tell us what you have in mind.
    Help make Norfolk Community Day 2017 one of the best and join the fun. You may contact the Norfolk Lions Club at norfolkcommunityday@gmail.com or call Ed M. @ 508-528-9302 or Patti M. @ 508-298-8695.

  • 3/26 5:36pm   My 66 year old husband was just taken advantage of at our town transfer station.
    He mistakenly placed an armful of burlap in the bin for cardboard and was yelled at by the attendants. They fished it out and told us to put it in bulk, which we did. One guy then charged us $5.00. Is there a listing anywhere of what things cost to dispose of. Doesn't make sense to pay $5.00 for a handful of burlap. It felt like a punitive surcharge against an elder man. He told us it wouldn't have been as much if we had not put it in the wrong bin in the first place. That was an honest mistake on my husbands part and I think it's out of line to penalize - have not a sign warning us of such a policy.
    Has anyone else had issues with arbitrary fees at out transfer station?

I have known Carol for 4 years, and she has the time-proven skills and experience needed to undertake the critical functions the Town Clerk provides. From administering elections, to registering and maintaining vital records, to interfacing with State government, it is fair to say the Town Clerk is a vital part of making a town government that works for all residents.

  • 2/12 11:09am   The exciting and very popular "Minds in Motion" Program is coming to the Norfolk Senior Center. Jerry Cianciolo, a publisher, editor, and writer, has been conducting the program in regional senior centers for the past three years and maintains that the unique eight-session program is not just a series of lectures, but an alternative approach conducive to the development of a group dynamic and whose aim is to spark engagement and spirited discussions on a variety of topics, including (but not limited to) food, music, imaginative writing, moral dilemmas, pop psychology, breakthrough inventions, or just about anything under the sun. And there's lots of fun and laughter in every session, as participants are encouraged to share their thoughts, judgments, opinions, and, at times, to think in new ways and about new topics they never thought would hold their interest.
    Cianciolo insists that the program is far from being just another lecture course and is designed "to take the stuffiness out of lifelong learning courses by combining the stimulation of a college workshop with the fun of a backyard barbecue." And it seems the recipe is cooking, the popularity of the program continues to grow with previous participants returning and signing-up for more.
    Advance registration and payment is mandatory and registrants must commit to attending six of the eight sessions that will be meeting Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. The cost is $20.00 for all eight sessions and there's yet another highly unusual component of this exciting new program: those who attend all eight sessions will receive a full refund of the program fee!
    For more information and to register, call 508-528-4430 or sign-up at the Senior Center front desk (payment will be due at that time). The first session is scheduled for March 9th with a March 3rd deadline for enrollment. Registrants are encouraged to sign-up early as space is limited.
    To receive a full listing and schedule of all Senior Center activities, please call (508) 528-4430 or visit the Council on Aging site at http://bit.ly/XR2e2c The Norfolk Senior Center is located at 28 Medway Branch Road and is open Monday thru Friday from 9 a. m. to 4 p. m.

  • 12/6 9:03pm   Norfolk Lions Club is in full swing with their annual Christmas Tree Sale!! This month long event is one of the Lions Club's most important fundraisers and a great opportunity for the Lions to connect with so many members of the community during the holiday period. Sales begin the day after Thanksgiving, on November 25, and continue until all trees are gone. We hope to see you down at the lot early for best selection.
    As has been its tradition in the past several years, the Norfolk Lions Christmas Tree Sale is located on the lot next to the Dunkin Donuts on Main Street in downtown Norfolk. We thank the owners of our local Dunkin Donuts for their continued support of the Norfolk Lions.
    Selling hours are weekdays from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM. The Lions will be happy to trim the bottom of your tree, wrap it and secure it to your car, although pickup trucks are very much appreciated. We accept cash and checks to the Norfolk Lions Club; sorry no credit cards.
    Did you know that it takes 10 to 12 years of growing time and professional care to bring a Christmas tree to harvest? Our trees come from northern Maine and they are fresh and beautiful! We have both Balsam and Frazier Fir trees, as well as wreaths. We also have tree bags and tree life preservative to promote needle retention and help keep your tree fresh.
    All of the proceeds from the sales of the trees go right back into the local Norfolk community and to various Lions charities. "Monies that the Lions generate go to seed such research as blindness prevention, diabetes prevention and numerous other causes", says Mark Conley, this year's President and King Lion. "Norfolk Lions has donated over $250,000 in it's over 50 years of service to the community".
    This year we will have a collection bin at the tree lot for Coats 4 Kids. We will be collecting coats for men, women and children to be given to families in need in our community. Any and all coats in good condition are needed and all will be dry-cleaned courtesy of Anton's Cleaners.
    We will also be collecting non-perishable food donations for the benefit of the Norfolk Food Pantry. Like many of us, the food pantry has been hit hard during these economic times and we would like to help out. Bill Hawkins, co-chairman of the Christmas Tree Sale, further comments, "Your contributions to the Norfolk Food Pantry would be appreciated and could not come at a better time of year."
    Again this year, the Boy Scouts of Norfolk will be offering a tree pick up service after the holidays. For $10, the Scouts will pick up a tree at any house in Norfolk and bring it to the transfer station for recycling. You can register for this service at the lot when you buy your tree.
    The Norfolk Lions Club currently has more than 100 men and women members and is growing! We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Norfolk Grange at 28 Rockwood Rd in Norfolk, MA. For more information or to get involved with the Norfolk Lions Club, please visit www.NorfolkMALions.org, or send email to norfolklionsmembership@gmail.com or talk to any Lions member you may know.

    Join us as we bring kids ages 7 through 17 together on stage for a truly family-oriented theatrical experience for all ages. Disney's The Little Mermaid brings all the beloved characters you know from the book and film to life on stage.
    Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl," and "Part of Your World."
    In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel (Cara DiPietro - Norfolk, MA), longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.
    Ariel, King Triton's (Nate April - Mansfield, MA) youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric (Matt Neary - Mansfield, MA) in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula (Cat Sapovits ~ Mansfield, MA), to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish (Gabriel Corey ~ Franklin, MA), Scuttle the seagull (Martin Horwath ~ Uxbridge, MA) and Sebastian the crab (George Potenza ~ Foxboro, MA) to restore order under the sea.
    The talented cast of 41 is guided by Director and Choreographer Michael Hammond (Holbrook, MA) and Music Director Danielle Clougher (Canton, MA).
    Performances are Friday, November 18th at 7:30pm, Saturday, November 19th at 2:00pm and 7:30pm and Sunday, November 20th at 2:00pm at the Orpheum Theatre, One School Street, Foxboro, MA.

For more information about the Un-Common Theatre Co. and Disney's The Little Mermaid, please visit our website at www.uncommontheatre.org This program is supported in part by a grant from the Foxborough Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

They would have had me as well as the police chasing them. They stole all the candy neighbors who weren't home left for the little ones to be able to help themselves. I would buy them candy if they were that desperate for it!!

    Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl," and "Part of Your World."
    In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel (Cara DiPietro - Norfolk, MA), longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. Ariel, King Triton's (Nate April - Mansfield, MA) youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric (Matt Neary - Mansfield, MA) in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula (Cat Sapovits ~ Mansfield, MA), to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish (Gabriel Corey ~ Franklin, MA), Scuttle the seagull (Martin Horwath ~ Uxbridge, MA) and Sebastian the crab (George Potenza ~ Foxboro, MA) to restore order under the sea.

  • 10/23 9:39pm   On Saturday, December 10, 2016, the Charles River Chorale will present its annual holiday concert. The Chorale will perform at Medway High School starting at 7:30 p.m. The Charles River Children's Choir will also perform.
    Under the direction of Ashley Nelson, the Chorale will present Randall Thompson's Frostiana: Seven Country Songs, putting seven of Robert Frost's poems to music. The collection was originally performed for the Bicentennial of Amherst, Massachusetts in 1959, and includes pieces for female voices, male voices, and for four-part chorus. They will also highlight the skills of Susan Fortin, Assistant Music Director and piano accompanist. Other pieces will include "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Homeward Bound," "Bring Him Home (Les Miserables)," "Home (Beauty and the Beast)," "Somewhere in My Memory," and "Home for the Holidays." The Children's Choir's pieces are yet to be announced.
    The Chorale's annual Silent Auction fund-raiser will be held as usual, featuring about fifty items donated by local businesses and members. The Chorale also raises funds through its program and adbook, which features local businesses, and a raffle specifically targeted to earn funds for the Chorale's outreach to the community. In recent years, the outreach funds have been directed toward the Charles River Children's Choir. Medway High School is a new venue for the Chorale, which performed primarily at Millis High School for thirty of its first thirty-one seasons. Although the Chorale was comfortable at the facility, the expanding audience base and general performance needs dictated a search for new venue. Medway's newer facility is expected to fill those needs for the foreseeable future. The Chorale will nonetheless continue to support the Millis community, and continues to rehearse in Millis.
    Changing venues is bittersweet, especially for longtime members. The Chorale began its existence as Millis' Bicentennial Chorus, performing in Washington, D.C. Members of that group later came together to charter the group as the Millis Community Chorale, enlisting the aid of founding Director Roy Kelley. The membership grew to include members from throughout the Charles River area, eventually leading to a change of name. When Maestro Kelley retired after thirty (30) years, the Chorale was fortunate to attract the interest of Ashley Nelson, the current Director.
    The Chorale draws membership from throughout the Charles River Valley, and performs two major concerts per year. It is available for other events as well. The group hopes to continue to expand its membership, audience reach, skills, and repertory for many years to come.

  • 10/23 9:07pm   Free Cat House - I built the pictured Cat House a couple of years ago to protect our housecat but still letting her go outside. It has a 6' long tunnel leading from our pet door to the Cat House. Its built of bolt together 3'X5' and 2'x3' sections and can be flat packed. I am sure the overall design can be modified by a handy person. It has a human access door. It has internal ramps and shelves and includes a heavy plastic cover. It was even used in the winter. The roofing material I used was not UV resistant so it is crumbling and needs to be replaced. This Cat House is free to anyone willing to take it apart. Email Hurdo@verizon.net if interested.

  • 10/23 8:14pm   Bench Dedication on Town Hill To Honor Jack McFeeley on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 12:00pm, on Town Hill next to red "Tramp House".
    Please come to the Norfolk dedication in honor of Jack McFeeley. An honorary bench has been installed overlooking the clock on Town Hill in the center of Norfolk next to the Norfolk Public Library. There's a story to that clock and Jack McFeeley was at the center of it. Come and learn more about this wonderful human being! Join us for a simple ceremony followed by light refreshments and music at the Tramp House. The event is hosted by Norfolk Community TV & the Norfolk Lions. We look forward to celebrating a onderful man and his many contributions to our great town. Thank you.
    "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." - Henry David Thoreau
    About Jack McFeeley:
    John J. ``Jack'' McFeeley, 69, of Norfolk, was born in Brooklyn, NY on August 15, 1945. He left us unexpectedly on February 5, 2015. He was the beloved husband of Jacquelyn ``Jackie'' (Ratzin) McFeeley and son of the late John and Maude (Irvine) McFeeley.
    Educated early on in Brooklyn schools, Jack received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. He worked for many years as a Chemical Engineer at Polaroid and later at Arkwright in Rhode Island until retirement.
    Jack was very active and stayed involved in community service, a real "people person." Serving generously, he gave much of himself to his community and his friends. He was Town Administrator for the town of Wrentham and on the Board of Selectmen in Norfolk for many years. Not only a charter member of the Lions Club in Norfolk, Jack was an active member of the Norfolk Democratic Committee, President, not only once but two times, of the Norfolk Community TV Board of Directors, as well as many other town committees.
    He was very proud of his Irish descent, loved history and was a math whiz. All sports, especially baseball and football held his interest with great enthusiasm. He was the rock and moral compass of his family, providing inspiration and guidance whenever needed. Jack McFeeley is sorely missed and will remain deeply respected by his family, friends and community. An example of a life well lived, though way too short, with kindness, attention to detail and ethics, more than enough joy to share, Jack's greatest gift was his generosity of spirit. Jack will continue to be a role model to be emulated, with a life most certainly to be celebrated. Thank you.

  • 10/23 8:11pm   Why not start Halloween a little early this year, and enjoy some music and dancing too? Come to King Philip's Band Night 2016, aka "Trunk or Treat," at King Philip High School on Thursday, October 27 from 7:30-8:30pm. Your elementary or middle school student is invited to bring their musical instrument (and Halloween costume) and play along with the King Philip Marching Band or learn how to use flags with the Color Guard. Younger students can then sit back and enjoy as the Marching Band performs their current show, Bella Rosa, on the High School Stadium field. The evening concludes with "trunk or treating" from the decorated cars of King Philip parents in the parking lot.
    Hosted by the King Philip Music Association, Band Night was started as an Open House event for younger students to learn to play with the Marching Band. When a Marching Band rehearsal fell on Halloween a few years ago, "trunk or treat" was started so the students wouldn't miss out on Halloween candy. Now an annual tradition, Band Night and trunk or treat are combined for a fantastic evening. Students of all levels of musicianship, dance or gymnastics are encouraged to attend and learn what the National Champion (2015 Group III Open) King Philip Marching Band is all about.
    This year we expect over 100 younger students to join in for an evening of learning with and playing alongside the Marching Band. Students should come accompanied by a parent or guardian and bring their musical instrument to the high school. Flags will be provided for any students interested in Color Guard. The band will practice outside, so please dress appropriately for the weather, and by all means Halloween costumes are encouraged!

  • 10/23 8:07pm   Spectra Energy is planning expansion of a gas pipeline through Norfolk. There has been some press, but many residents still may not be familiar with this proposal, the consequences, and the forces driving the expansion. The following links will allow residents to learn more about the project and how to oppose this pipeline.

    This is a direct link to the Conservation Law Foundation site that reviews the study commissioned by the Attorney General on why no new pipeline is needed. www.clf.org/blog/massachusetts-attorney-generals-report-gas-pipelines
    Here is a link to a petition requesting the Norfolk Board of Selectmen to become intervenors in the Northeast Access Pipeline project (Spectra) www.change.org/p/norfolk-ma-board-of-selectmen-norfolk-ma-residents-against-the-spectra-gas-pipeline-project
    Intervenor Status which requests...
    ...Town officials to file an application to become an Intervenor on the pipeline issue. Having Intervenor Status simply allows the town to act on behalf of its residents and have a say in the process. It positions and allows the town to weigh in on what is happening with regards to the proposed Spectra pipeline expansion project. It does not require the town to take a position either for or against the project but rather to simply request to be able to participate in the process.
    Thank You.

  • 9/25 9:59pm   The Norfolk Food Pantry is in need of additional storage capacity to store the various donations made by our community. The Norfolk Lions club is working with the Norfolk Food Pantry and the Emmanuel Baptist Church to build a new 8' by 20' secure storage shed to house dry goods and other non-perishable items. The Norfolk Lions are have undertaken the project to build a new 8' by 20' secure storage shed and are raising additional funds to help offset the cost of construction. Construction has begun and will finish in the late summer to fall timeframe this year.
    The Lions have committed $2,500 to the project and are donating most of the labor. They have also earmarked a donation of $500 received from a developer in town to the project. The overall construction cost will be approximately $5,000, so the Lions are trying to raise additional funds to help offset the cost of construction through a GoFundMe campaign. Any funds raised beyond the actual construction costs will be used to purchase non-perishable items for the Food Pantry or donated directly as cash.
    The Lions are now looking for help from the community - any donation will be appreciated not only by the Lions, but by all the people this project will serve. You can make a donation on the GoFundMe web site at www.gofundme.com/2maxae6s. Or if you prefer to donate directly to the Lions, you can mail a check to: Norfolk Lions, P.O. Box 608, Norfolk, MA 02056. Make checks payable to the Norfolk Lions and please put "Food Pantry Project" on the memo line.

  • 9/25 9:57pm   PCD - I 100% agree. Living very close to the center of Norfolk, I am pretty upset with this this new development and to hear others are on the way. It's my fault for not being more involved with the town meeting etc. but with two small children, both me and my Wife working full time, and just trying to keep up with the house; it's not always easy (I know, I know civic duty). It doesn't sound like it would have mattered as the developer used the 40B laws to stuff it in the residents of Norfolk's face. I'm going to guess he won't be personally and negatively impacted by this as he probably doesn't live near the town center. In fact, I'll bet he would be the first one to try and prevent this type of development if it was going to be near his home (Not in my backyard!). Way to ruin the look and the feel of Norfolk. I can promise you this; my family will not be long for Norfolk if this is the direction of the town. I had been a Life-long resident of Canton before moving to town in 2007, and it took me a few years to realize how special Norfolk was. You want to see how this ends; take a ride through Canton. They aren't leaving a single square inch of that town un-developed. More developments to come? Why not put a "Boyde's Crossing" development near The Preserve at Keeney Pond, or maybe somewhere near Toils End Rd and Eric Rd. It looks like there's plenty of real estate there, no?

  • 9/5 1:37pm   The high density housing project at 106/108 Main Street is under way. Here we will see 40 homes stuffed on less than 9 acres of land in our quaint small country Town of Norfolk. The people of Norfolk put up a valiant effort to ward off this type of high density development in our downtown though recent local zoning that was voted in to stop this concept. But the developers went to the State for approval under 40B laws and regulations that permit this type of development when Town has less than 10% affordable housing stock. This will not be the only development to change the face of our little town center. There is another high density housing project proposed for 25 Rockwood Road. This will be located just over the railroad track crossing in the center of Norfolk. Both properties are in our downtown commercial zone, now to be lost forever to residential development. The impacts we will all see will be an increase in traffic and congestion in downtown, more demand on our ever shrinking water supply, impacts on our school system, and most important to all that voted this type of high density development out.the loss of our Small Town Character.

We are a secular chorus drawing membership from throughout the Charles River Valley, and performing two major concerts per year. We rehearse weekly, and we always have coffee and snacks available by about 7:00 p.m. Members both old and new are encouraged to come early to socialize and prepare for the night's work. Rehearsals generally end at 9:30 p.m.
    Under the direction of Ashley Nelson, the Chorale will rehearse works for its December offering, "Home for the Holidays." Among the works featured will be Randall Thompson's Frostiana: Seven Country Songs. Specifically composed to put seven of Robert Frost's winter-themed poems to music. The collection was originally performed for the Bicentennial of Amherst, Massachusetts in 1959. The pieces include works for male voices alone, female voices alone and for four-part chorus. They will also highlight the skills of Susan Fortin, Assistant Music Director and piano accompanist.
    The remainder of the music is yet to be announced, but is expected to be enjoyable to rehearse and perform.
    The Chorale is a non-audition community chorus. Anyone who wants to sing is encouraged to join us. Membership is fluid for the first month; new members are generally accepted only during the first four weeks. No musical training is required, and Ms. Nelson will work with new members to determine the range at which their voices and skills will be most successful. Members pay dues of $65.00 for the entire year (holiday and spring concerts) and reimburse the chorale for the cost of their music, and keep the music. High school students are not required to pay dues. The Chorale also performs outreach to the community. Currently, the Chorale sponsors and financially supports the Charles River Children's Choir. The Children's Choir also performs at the Chorale's concerts.
    The Chorale is always looking for ways to expand its repertoire and reach. Over the past summer, a "third season" of a cappella and barbershop music was rehearsed by members willing to brave the heat. The men and the women involved performed in several small venues, and in the process increased their skills and repertoire.
    Anyone interested in vocal performance is encouraged to visit with us beginning September 13, 2016.

  • 9/5 1:17pm   Hi Norfolk! Some of you may know me, my name is Saraneh Fitzgerald and I am a college student who was raised in Norfolk and I still call it home! I study Geography at Clark University and recently came back from doing research in a small village in Belize for the summer.
    While there, I met an amazing youth who had a great passion for learning. He was 14, and actually came to our research team and wanted to spend his summer vacation days collecting data with us! We spent long hours walking around in the sun, surveying people, and mapping structures. It was amazing to get to know this young man and how much he loved learning.
    Unfortunately, the financial costs of technology are a barrier to learning these days. That's why I am raising money to buy him a laptop before he goes into high school.
    Here is a link to the project profile on GoFundMe, where you can donate to the laptop: gofundme.com/2hqzdp5g
    Any amount is appreciated, and will make a difference.
    Thank you!
