As has been its tradition in the past six 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 Ed Melanson, 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 82 men and women members and is growing! We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Novatos Bar and Grill at 218 Dedham St (Rt. 1A) in Norfolk, MA. For more information or to get involved with the Norfolk Lions Club, please visit www.NorfolkMALions.org, or send email to norfolk email@example.com or talk to any Lions member you may know.
Copies are available today at the Library and Senior Center and on the web at www.virtualnorfolk.org.
Sorry for the inconvenience. We hope to see you at Town Meeting on Tuesday at 7 pm at the King Philip Middle School.

Thanks so much. - AMG Hello AMG,
You requested feedback from construction experts so I thought I would reply to your post regarding storm doors (Complete Builders, LLC of Norfolk: Your Professional MA Residential Builders & Design Specialists www.CBuildllc.com
I am not familiar with the Tradewinds/Larson brand you mentioned so I will direct the info to the Anderson/EMCO series that HD offers.
Probably the number one feature to look for as you are making choices/comparisons is whether or not the storm door has a wood core. This is common in the EMCO series found at Home Depot (which is actually an Anderson brand). The downside to the wood core is that if moisture penetrates that wood core it will affect the lifespan of the door (thus counterproductive to your comment that you want it to last longer than a few years).
Although these doors are within the price range you mentioned it is best to find out if the 400 series that you are considering has that wood core; you may be spending it all again within a few short years. The Anderson 2000 series and 2500 series offer full view and also a foldaway screen option for about $250. Home Depot charges $127 for install. This includes the $30 to come out and measure and see if your door opening needs any other work done to accommodate the storm door; such as a repairs to existing door jam or a "build out". Those types of things would add cost to the install but are evaluated and priced out beforehand. If you should decide after the measuring that it just doesn't work for you, my understanding is that HD will only charge the $30 for the time their installer spent coming out to measure and evaluate. Not sure if you are an avid DIY'er but storm doors tend to be a very challenging install; "some assembly required" is an understatement and the $127 install fee is worth every penny. I hope you find this info helpful in making your storm door selection for your NH home.

That said, you are 100% right that they teach to the exam. It is totally wrong that the standard daily learning activities are altered for this prior to the exam period. I bet the Principal didn't admit to that though. All it does is get the kids worked up about a test that they should be able to pass regardless. Parent/teacher conferences are this week in Norfolk. Every parent should tell their child's teacher that they oppose the 'cram session' before the upcoming exams. If enough parents voice a concern it might make the Superintendent realize that something is wrong; or at least make her comment on it.

Could someone please recommend a reputable and reasonable company or individual who can supply and install a whole house humidifier for my neighbor's forced air furnace? Home is approximately 4 years old, located in Norfolk and the air ducts are easily accessed adjacent to the furnace in the basement with electricity easily accessed. Most of us have Skuttle systems installed by the developer but she did not elect to do so at construction. Square footage is approximately 1800. The installer must be licensed and insured and able to produce documents to that effect as required by our condo association.

Aaron Cadieux and Manny Famolare, co-directors of *The Bridgewater Triangle*, will screen their film at the Norfolk Public Library on Wednesday, Oct. 22 nd at 7:00 p.m. The 90-minute documentary will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the co-directors, and is free and open to the public.
The Bridgewater Triangle documentary was a movie decades in the making. Each of the film's co-directors grew up near one of the triangle's most infamous locations. As a resident of East Bridgewater, Famolare had heard bizarre stories of cryptic animal sightings in the nearby Hockomock Swamp. Meanwhile, as a resident of North Dartmouth, Cadieux was well aware of the neighboring Freetown-Fall River State Forest's sinister reputation. Famolare and Cadieux each came to know the concept of the Bridgewater Triangle through reading publications from leading researchers.
The Bridgewater Triangle sits within the Southeastern portion of Massachusetts, and includes a number of locations known for unexplained occurrences, the most prominent of which include the legendary Hockomock Swamp and the infamous Freetown/Fall River State Forest. The Triangle's traditional borders are revealed by connecting the dots between the town of Abington to the north, the town of Freetown to the southeast, and the town of Rehoboth to the southwest. The region hosts an unusually high volume of reports involving strange occurrences, unexplained mysteries and sinister activities. From ghostly hauntings and cryptic animal sightings, to UFO encounters and evidence of satanic ritual sacrifice, the Bridgewater Triangle serves as one of the world's most diverse hotspots for paranormal activity.
In 2010, after years of researching many odd occurrences in the Bridgewater Triangle, Famolare, a passionate photographer and videographer, decided to begin the process of making his own documentary on the subject. Through the internet, Famolare and Cadieux stumbled across each other's plans, and eventually agreed to join forces and produce a single comprehensive piece. By 2011, production on *The Bridgewater Triangle *was well underway. After almost three years of filming, scriptwriting and researching, the documentary debuted on October 20, 2013 to a sell-out crowd of more than 750 people at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. It presents the reports of strange occurrences and unexplained mysteries from the region in a way which allows viewers to make their own determinations regarding the legitimacy of the Bridgewater Triangle's existence.
The film features a number of local residents providing first-hand, eyewitness accounts of unexplained occurrences in the region. In addition, paranormal researchers, folklorists and authors provide expert analysis regarding the many mysteries of the Triangle. Loren Coleman, the author and world-renowned cryptozoologist dubbed the 200-square-mile region in southeastern Massachusetts, "The Bridgewater Triangle" in his 1983 work, Mysterious America.
Since its debut a year ago, *The Bridgewater Triangle* has been screened at Bridgewater State University as well as several area libraries, and has an upcoming screening at Cinema Salem. Famolare and Cadieux have been interviewed on WCVB's Chronicle as well as WJAR in Providence. *The Bridgewater Triangle* will air on the cable channel, Destination America in November.
Improv Soup is an improvisational comedy troupe made up of teenagers from all over southeastern Massachusetts. It was started circa 1998 by Christa Crewdson (Watertown, MA), and is currently produced by Chris Lowey (Foxboro, MA) and directed by Improv Soup Alumni, Colleen Murphy (Brighton, MA) who continues to develop Superior Soupians. They are one of the few teen Improv Troupes in Massachusetts.

Narrated by the Cat in the Hat (Izzy Johnson, Canton, MA), the story tells the tale of Horton (Joe Spirito, North Smithfield, RI), an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo (Jackson Flaherty, Mansfield, MA), a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge - not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Olivia Fonseca, Taunton, MA). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Camryn MacIver, North Attleboro, MA) never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship,loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
The talented cast of 45 is guided by Director and Choreographer Michael Hammond (Holbrook, MA), Music Director Paula Bishop (Foxboro, MA) and Assistant Choreographer Cailin Dyke (Mansfield, MA).
