Parade to Feature ‘Caparisoned Horse’
By Jean Perry
They say the custom dates back to the time of
Genghis Khan – the riderless horse led to the burial place
of its fallen warrior to soon after be sacrificed and eaten in
his honor – when it was believed that a horse was useless
without its warrior companion.
Things have changed over time in obvious ways,
but the sentiment behind the riderless horse remains
Today, the solemn practice of leading the horse
with no rider, known as a “caparisoned horse,” is
reserved for extraordinary people during their funeral
procession, a moving tribute to a great life that has passed
on to death.
On each side a boot, traditionally of the deceased,
is placed in the stirrup facing backwards, symbolizing the
fallen rider’s last look back on life before riding into the
Going back in U.S. history, Abraham Lincoln was
the first president to be honored by the cap horse, which
was President Lincoln’s personal horse, Old Bob.
The cap horse is truly a poignant sight to behold,
the vision of a horse that must go on without its rider.
This Memorial Day in Mattapoisett, parade
watchers will witness Mattapoisett’s first caparisoned
horse in recallable Mattapoisett history make its way
Mattapoisett Harbormaster Jill Simmons assisted the
Environmental Police on Wednesday, May 18, with the arrest
of Belmiro Baptista, 65, Pawtucket, charged with 153 counts of
poaching sea bass. He is accused of fishing outside the sea bass
season and possession of above the legal limit of five sea bass.

On the Cover: The Mattapoisett Memorial Day parade on
Monday will feature its first-ever riderless horse known as a
“caparisoned horse,” a historic tradition that honors warriors
and highly esteemed soldiers and individuals during a funeral
procession. Led by her owner, Cheryl Randall Mach, ‘Honey’
will be formally dressed with two boots belonging to Mach’s
grandfather, a WWI cavalry veteran, mounted in the stirrups
facing backwards along with a silver cavalry sword. Mach’s
father, George Randall, a Mattapoisett veteran and member of
the Florence Eastman American Legion Post #280, came up
with the idea to draw attention to the Legion. Photo by Jean

The brown and cream ‘Honey,’ Mach’s registered
paint horse, has been practicing for weeks for her first
caparisoned horse procession slated for Monday.
“This is our first time doing this, thanks to Dad,”
said Mach. Her father is George Randall, a Mattapoisett
veteran and member of the Florence Eastman American
Legion Post 280. He suggested to Mach that she
participate with Honey in the parade to help draw
attention to the Legion.
With only a week until show time, on Sunday,
May 22, Mach readied Honey outside her stall for a dress
rehearsal with the boots of Mach’s grandfather, Arthur
C. Lewis, a member of the cavalry in WWI, securely
mounted in the stirrups and a shiny silver cavalry sword
hanging on her side.
“He taught us how to ride military style,”
said Mach, recalling time spent with “Grandpa Lewis”
when she and her sister were little. “At his farm in East
Longmeadow, he would drill us.”
Mach said Honey had previously attended a
police horse training to get her used to sirens and noise
including barking dogs, and diversions like smoke and
other obstacles. She said she has been quite the spectacle
in her neighborhood these days, walking Honey up and
down Chapel Road where Honey’s home is at Peacock

Farm. But practice makes perfect, and Mach wants to be
sure Honey is confidant on the big day.
“A sword hanging off your side isn’t normal for
horses these days,” said Mach. “Not like they used to.”
Cap horses, Mach said, have traditionally been
darker horses, but these days more people are using
horses of all different colors and breeds.
“This was really all Dad’s idea,” said Mach.
Randall said the legion is having a hard time
recruiting new members and he worries about the future
of Post 280.
“We really got to try to keep the legion going,”
said Randall.

their real-time goals and objectives? Thus, OC Creates
was born.
Problem solving and strategic thinking are part
of each and every school day for OCRVTHS students.
Students design and build, working in inter-discinplinary
teams as part of their academic and shop experience. Now
the school has a program that focuses solely on bringing
real world problems into the shop while helping the
students develop their skillsets in a richer, more layered
OC Creates gives the students a chance to
interface with local businesses and assist them by
designing and building prototypes of equipment or
pieces of apparatus that perform within the businesses’
industrial atmosphere.
“This is a new venture pulling together different
shops whose collaboration will bring to fruition a product
for a client,” Machamer said.
On May 18, Machamer, along with department
heads Al Amaral, Mike Ferreria, and Mike Richards,
introduced the students whose efforts created a hoist
device for Anchor Insulation of Pawtucket, RI.
Acushnet senior Felisha Shiner from the metal
fabrication and joining technology shop, Assonet
junior Sky Bowker of CADD drafting and design, and
Mattapoisett junior Nat Nicolosi from machine and tool
technology explained how that collaborative process came
“I want to major in design,” said Bowker. “I did
the detail drawings to build a machine to lift insulation,
which is heavy.”
Prior to the development of the hoist machine,
workers at Anchor had to either work on the floor or
struggle to manually lift heavy rolls of insulation, Chris
King of Anchor explained.
Shiner took Bowker’s drawings and thought, “I
got this.”
The team would later learn that, sometimes,
the first plan is not always the best plan, as half way
through the construction process they had to go back to
the drawing board. Shiner expressed her emotions at that
juncture: “holy crap!”
May 26, 2016 The Wanderer
In the end, the students’ focused efforts resulted
in a finished product that Anchor could use to improve
ergonomic functioning on their factory floor.
“It was a fun experience,” King said, finding the
students to be “very impressive.” “Our expectations were
King plans to remain in contact with OCRVTHS
and to try to “reciprocate and help partner students
with real time projects in the field.” King had tried to

of Belmiro Baptista, 65, of Pawtucket, Rhode Island for
poaching sea bass.
“We got to talking,” said Simmons. “I asked him
how the fishing was and he said it wasn’t that good and
he only got five or six sea bass.”
Hmm, thought Simmons.
Baptista said he had a commercial saltwater
fishing license, but Simmons wasn’t certain if it was even
the legal season for commercial sea bass fishing. So she
excused herself and phoned the Environmental Police.
They told her commercial sea bass season wasn’t until
August 1, and recreational sea bass season didn’t start
until the following Saturday, May 28.
“So I said to him, how many bass did you get?”
This time Baptista replied, “Eight,” Simmons said. “So we
went from five to eight…”
Another check showed Baptista had been cited
four times in the past 12 months for illegal catches.
“[The Environmental Police] came down and
they’re the ones who have the authority to tear the boat
apart,” said Simmons.
She said some of the fish were covered by clothes
and trawling gear on the deck, which raised suspicions
that there could be more on board.
“When they opened up the door to the cabin, I
heard them say, ‘Whoa! We hit the mother lode!’”
According to Simmons and the Massachusetts
Environmental Police, Baptista had caught exactly 153 sea

bass, with 75 of them below the 15-inch size minimum.
The legal limit of a sea bass catch is five sea bass.
Baptista was placed under arrest for failing to
display the fish on demand, possession of undersized sea
bass, possession of over the limit of sea bass, possession of
sea bass in a closed season, and no saltwater permit.
Simmons said Baptista will likely have his
commercial fishing license revoked as well.
Baptista will be arraigned on June 27 at Wareham
Superior Court.

This Mattapoisett Life
By Marilou Newell
If there is one guilty pleasure I will readily share
in this public forum, it is that I love ice cream. Not all
flavors or all types, however. Not the avant-garde green
tea sorbet or bacon chip coffee mocha latte. No, I like the
flavors of my youth when choices were few and the rarity
of eating ice cream – generally done only in the summer
months – made doing so memorable.
It’s funny how memory works.
Sounds, smells, and even tastes can linger in
our brains and be revisited upon request, returning us
to a place in time. A time when knees were perpetually
covered in band-aides, summer people flocked into town
like migratory birds as soon as schools closed for the
season, and the ice cream man returned from his winter
One of my strongest childhood memories, one
that comes to me now as summer approaches, is the
ice cream man who drove for Dainty Maid ice cream.
My love affair with ice cream surely began way back
then and surely is, in part, because of the ice cream men
Dainty Maid was a family-owned ice cream
factory and shop on Cranberry Highway in Wareham.
Their small fleet of white ice cream trucks became a
fixture along the streets of Onset village after Memorial
Day when I was a child.
These were not the panel vans that now roam
beaches or public recreational venues with blaring brash

loud recorded ear-splitting tuneless loops of noise. Oh
no, Dainty Maid trucks were small pick-ups with custombuilt refrigerator units tucked behind the cabs. Bright
chrome handles on small doors, one on each side of the
refrigerator unit, allowed the driver to reach inside and
extract the yummy frozen treats.
Of course, we heard the ice cream truck long
before we saw it advancing towards our corner where
a group of giggling squirmy kids fresh from the beach
anxiously waited for its arrival. The drivers controlled
that sweet gentle tinkling bell, a real bell jingled back and
forth via a string attached to the interior of the cab. So
delightful was that sound, chime like, and so welcoming
to our ears.
May 26, 2016 The Wanderer
Everything was white. The trucks were white,
the ice cream man’s uniform was white, even his hat and
shoes were white. Those young men whose summer job
it was to drive a route selling ice cream novelties had to
actually park the truck, get out, and walk to the freezer
door. It took time, but then everything was slower and
anticipation appreciated in the last century.
The ice cream man was someone you came to
know and someone who knew what you wanted before
you could ask. You developed a relationship with the ice
cream man because he was part of your neighborhood
He was polite and expected the children to act
like decent little citizens – no pushing, no fighting, no
screaming, just line up one-at-a-time so he could then
focus his attention on the tiny customer standing before
him. From my little kid vantage point, he was tall and
elegant standing there with the power to fulfill my
deepest desire: ice cream!
You felt grown-up handing the ice cream man
a fifty-cent piece and he, in turn, would click the coin
machine levers that hung from his belt. He’d press the
coins in your hand with a friendly reminder, “Now don’t
lose that.”
Children would scamper to the sidewalk curb
under a shady tree to eat their treats. I can feel the warm
summer breezes now as they floated up the street from
Sunset Island and I, sitting on the curbstone, tried to

make my chocolate-covered bar last as long as possible.
Removing the paper wrapper from the ice cream,
we’d twist it around the stick to help catch the drips
we knew would come. Then, placing the wonderfully
smooth, thickly-coated chocolate-covered bar in our
mouths, voices disappeared into a chorus of “M-mmm.”
Everyone had their own style, their own
technique for eating a chocolate-covered bar. Some licked
and sucked the top off exposing the creamy homemade
vanilla ice cream inside, while others ate the hard
chocolate coating off first and then devoured the vanilla.
Regardless of one’s mastery for eating what can only be
described as a bit of frozen heaven, you’d end up with
melted chocolate and ice cream on your fingers. It was

Rochester Hires New Town Administrator
Rochester Board of Selectmen

The Rochester Board of Selectmen has found its
new town administrator, and selectmen didn’t have to
look very far to find her.
Suzanne Szyndlar, the current part-time town
accountant for the Towns of Rochester and Mattapoisett,
will assume the full-time position as the town’s first
female town administrator since the position was
“The Board of Selectmen is pleased to be
able to announce that we have found our new town
administrator,” said Selectmen Chairman Naida Parker
on May 23. “The position is going to be chief financial
officer/town administrator.”
The position was offered to Szyndlar on a sixmonth trial basis to ensure both parties, Szyndlar and the
town, were content with the arrangement.

she is warming up to it,” Parker said. “She wasn’t quite
certain in the beginning … but she was getting more
enthusiastic about it.”
Parker said Szyndlar would likely be an asset to
the town, given her prior knowledge of all aspects of town
finance, including the budget.
“Suzanne brings full financial knowledge of
the town to the table, and she’ll be a fantastic town
administrator,” said Parker. “She will have the knowledge
… of how the money is being spent, and she will be able
to pick up the other administrative duties on the town
administrator side.”
Szyndlar will leave her position as town
accountant for the Town of Mattapoisett before starting
full-time at Rochester Town Hall on July 1.
“She’s the first [Rochester] resident and first
woman out of our town administrators, so I’m very
excited and very pleased about that,” said Parker.
“We are very excited about that,” Selectman
Bradford Morse added.
Also during the meeting, during review of
the Annual Town Meeting Warrant, two members
of the Board of Assessors and one town employee
of the Highway Department and Fire Department
challenged warrant article No. 14 that would amend the
Personnel Bylaw to abolish the employment practice
of sick leave buyback for all town employees, current
and new; however, the amendment would not affect
current contractual employees of the Police and School
Not fair, cried the town employees.
Selectmen said the financial liability is too much
for the town to handle, suggesting that if the amendment
is not made, the town would have to seek a Proposition
2½ override to continue to fund sick leave buyback.
Town employee Harrison Harding, who is also
a non-voting member of the Personnel Board, said the
article amendment was not brought before the Personnel
Board for discussion, which it should have been.
“It never got discussed,” said Harding. “There
were some things that were supposed to be talked about,
but the people who should’ve been talking about it

weren’t there.” He continued, “It wasn’t other people’s
places to be talking about it.”
Harding said this was the first time he had heard
anything about the warrant article.
Selectmen and Town Counsel Blair Bailey
could not explain why it was never brought to the
Personnel Board’s attention, assuming that perhaps the
miscommunication occurred with the relatively abrupt
departure of former Town Administrator Michael McCue.
Board of Assessors member Diana Knapp told
selectmen, “It’s basically saying, ‘We don’t support lowlevel employees’.”
“I have been here 12 years doing this, and I have

that the contract employees have better benefits than
them,” said Bailey. “So now the selectmen are taking away
something from the contract employees from across the
board and want to take it away from the bylaw employees
to be fair…” Bailey continued, “I get it, it’s a no-win
situation as far as the selectmen are concerned.”
Knapp told selectmen there must be a number of
other alternatives to ease the financial liability to the town
other than cut out sick leave buyback.
“Kind of the problem is,” said Harding, “the
articles just come up and ‘bang,’ hit the agenda and
there’s kind of no discussion … to see if there’s any kind
of … way of working with you.”
Harding said he is not a contract employee and
he is not concerned with what benefits contract employees
“But they’ve had it for a long time and now
you’re pulling it out from under them,” Harding said.
Parker said this debate will likely hit the Town
Meeting floor on June 13, but Harding argued that
earlier discussions could avoid lengthy town meeting
Parker said anyone was welcome to motion to
postpone the article at Town Meeting, but the article
remains on the warrant.
“[Buyback] has to come out unless we want to
pass an override to fund it,” said Parker, “and that will be
the will of Town Meeting.”
The next meeting of the Rochester Board of
Selectmen is scheduled for June 6 at 6:30 pm at the

New Business at Old Venues
Mattapoisett Board of Selectmen
By Marilou Newell
During the May 24 meeting of the Mattapoisett
Board of Selectmen, two new businesses received all
alcohol and common victualler licenses.
Coming before the board was Nabih “Nabby”
Maujabber of New Bedford to discuss his plans for
opening the Lebanese Kitchen at the former Mattapoisett
Chowder House, 79 Fairhaven Road.

Maujabber said they were faced with more work
than anticipated, thus causing him to do more than
originally planned to the interior of the building.
“We are going to be our best so you can be proud
of us here,” said Maujubber, adding, “We want to make
sure when we open, we do it right.”
Selectmen Tyler Macallister said, “We’ve heard
nothing but good things about you.”
Maujabber had an established restaurant in New
Bedford until two years ago when a devastating fire made
re-opening at that location untenable. Now he plans to
open in Mattapoisett.
“There are not a lot of opportunities for
commercial development,” said Selectman Jordan Collyer.

“You are being a tremendous asset to the community.”
He, too, praised Maujabber.
Macallister welcomed Maujabber to Mattapoisett
to a rousing round of applause from those in the audience.
Also coming before the board was Eric Lawrence
of Aeolus Energy Services, Rochester. Lawrence plans
to renovate the Bowl-Mor property, keeping much of its
traditional character while adding new electronic scoring
technology, a new lounge, and a restaurant.
Selectman Paul Silva was concerned about
approving the last remaining all alcohol license, noting
the possibility that a business might move into the former
Tokyo restaurant which has lain empty for five years.
After further consideration by the board, the license was

Another business seeking permission to do
business in town was Johnny’s Seafood of Cumberland,
Rhode Island, a food truck service. Arlene Marina,
representing owner John Fogerty, said that he was
interested in doing business at the town’s public beaches
and at Ned’s Point.
Collyer was not in favor of allowing a food truck
at Ned’s Point, saying it was a “serene” location not
suited for that type of business. The selectmen did agree
that the town beach location on Water Street was a good
location, but asked the applicant to return with a ‘request
for proposal’ to ensure fairness to all businesses looking to
“lock up” that location for the summer season.

Another business coming before the board was
the Hillside Motel in their final performance review.
Sonya Patel, the owner, was praised by the board for her
efforts to improve the property and improve screening of
potential occupants of the motel.
All three selectmen said that they discussed her
efforts with police and fire departments who were also
pleased with all she had been able to accomplish since
conditions and concerns were addressed last winter. Patel
was told she didn’t need to return to the board until her
license renewal in December.
Town Administrator Michael Gagne reported that
the bike path project was slated for October 2017 by the
Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
Gagne also said of the town’s roadway reconstruction projects that he had seen the list during his
meeting as the town’s joint transportation plan member
at SRPEDD. “We are fiscal year 2021 … $4.5 million, it
may seem like it’s a long way off but there are projects
that have been on the TIP (transportation improvement
program) for five years,” he said, due to not having 25
percent engineered drawings completed. Gagne said such
documentation was “critical to funding.”
The board agreed to prepare a RFP for
engineering for such drawings in preparation for
Fall Town Meeting. Silva suggested, “Look at Barry’s

look at what’s been done. Then, let’s see what we need to

This discussion segued into Mattapoisett
Municipal Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan which has been
posted on the town’s website.
Gagne suggested that the board wait until the
next meeting to discuss the plan in order to give the
community sufficient time to prioritize and identify costs
associated with the plan. He said he had seen plans fail
due to not scheduling a long list appropriately or noting
the value of each item on the list.
Gagne then moved on to the issue of sidewalks
in need of repair and said that type of work needed to be
added to the plan’s list.
Regarding SRPEDD, Gagne said that Randal
Kunz, who had held the position of Mattapoisett’s
representative to the regional transportation planning
group, was stepping down. He said anyone interested in
submitting their name for consideration will be involved
with regional planning and development, energy groups,
rail transportation and other infra-structure matters.
The selectmen also discussed plans for additional
flagpoles. It had been suggested that additional flags
might be appropriate at Ned’s Point. But after further
discussion, Gagne said that the American Legion had
pointed to unfinished business at the municipal library.
The legion suggested any new flags should be placed at
this municipal location.
Collyer said that the library is actually two parcels
of land with one parcel having been gifted to the town by
the Purrington family many years ago with memorials
placed for veterans of wars up to WWI. He said it had
always been planned to erect other monuments for other
wars and veterans but had not been followed-up to date.
“Let’s do what we have to do at the library,” Silva
suggested. They agreed to address lighting concerns at the
Ned’s Point pole location, a pole that had been donated to
the town by Steven Rule.
Gagne said that he had received a letter from
Peter Newton of the Conservation Commission stating
that he will not be seeking a fifth term on the commission.
Gagne said, “ConCom has the heaviest agenda and
hardest job.” Collyer chuckled that that might not be an

Special Permit Filing Withdrawn
Mattapoisett Zoning Board of Appeals
By Marilou Newell
Patricia Harrington, 169 North Street, laid out
all the reasons why the Mattapoisett Zoning Board of
Appeals should approve her request for a special permit
to construct a new home on her undeveloped abutting lot.
May 26, 2016 The Wanderer
During the May 19 hearing, Harrington told the
board that when she purchased the two side-by-side
parcels in 1975, it was with an eye towards the future.
“We left it undeveloped until maybe family
needed it,” she told them. Her daughter is now ready to
build on the lot she said.
Continuing with her defense of the filing, she
said, “It would be no detriment to the neighborhood….
It’s the same as many lots on North Street.” Harrington
finished her comments by adding, “It would seamlessly
fit into the neighborhood.” She described the proposed
new home as being a colonial style.
The board members looked at one another. Then
ZBA member and clerk Mary Ann Brogan asked, “Where
are the plans?” Harrington said she didn’t want to spend
the money to get plans or engineered drawings until she
knew whether or not the board would view her request
Building Inspector Andy Bobola responded, “I
tried to explain in-depth, but Mrs. Harrington wished to
file anyway.”
ZBA member Paul Millott said, “We’re looking at
a pretty big blank.”
Brogan interjected, “We are not the last stop.”
Board members then took turns explaining to
Harrington that, before they could review and make a
determination on a special permit, they needed specific
details such as a septic plan and architectural drawings at
the very least. Brogan said, “You need ConCom approval
Harrington again said that she didn’t want to
spend thousands of dollars without knowing if the house
could be built.
“That’s the chance you take,” Brogan said. “It’s a
business decision.”

Harrington fired back, saying it wasn’t a business
decision because it was for her family. Harrington also
said that her daughter could not get a construction loan
without showing ZBA approval.
Brogan said that Harrington could sell the land
to her daughter without town department approval, but
the existing process protected both the town and the
“I have to spend money and cross-fingers
that you would approve it,” Harrington declared with
Bobola told Harrington she should follow the
checklist provided to her by the Building Department to
help her navigate through the process.

Harrington was at a standstill at that point as
Bobola suggested to the board that they allow Harrington
to withdraw her filing without prejudice so that she could
start over.
Harrington heard that if she wished for the board
to vote on her application then and there, it would be
denied and she would have to wait two years before refiling. “Please don’t do that,” Harrington pleaded as she
agreed to withdraw her request.
In other business, David Vermette, 0 Harbor
Road, received a special permit to build a single-family
home on the undeveloped lot.
Also coming before the board was Phil Goyette,
11 Mattapoisett Neck Road, for a special permit to
demolish the existing structure and construct a new
single-family home. Goyette’s request was approved.
The next meeting of the Mattapoisett Zoning
Board of Appeals will be posted for June 16 at 6:00 pm in
the town hall meeting room if there are filings to be heard.
Silvershell Beach Now Smoke-Free
Marion Board of Health
By Jean Perry
Leave your cigarettes at home if you’re heading
to Silvershell Beach in Marion this summer because the
Marion Board of Health is getting rid of the designated
smoking section located at the edge of the beach and
doing away with the cigarette barrel once placed there.

The Wanderer
May 26, 2016
This was the first topic brought to the table by
newly-elected Board of Health member Jason Reynolds,
who asked on May 24 that fellow board members support
the removal of the designated smoking section and the
installation of a ‘No Smoking’ sign right at the entrance of
Silvershell Beach.
Reynolds said the Town of Marion is a “desirable
town” to live in, with “well-educated” residents, so
smoking should not be permitted at the town’s beaches,
parks, or any other public area.
“I just feel like the last thing I want to do when
I’m at the beach is be subject to someone’s cigarette
smoke,” said Reynolds.
Health Agent Karen Walega agreed that the
designated smoking section should go, calling it a “bad
spot,” just as bad as walking into the grocery store with
someone smoking right at the entrance. At Silvershell, she
noted, the smoking section is “literally as you walk onto
the beach.”
Walega pointed out that the smoking regulations
the board updated earlier this year specifically list public
beaches as areas where smoking is prohibited, so a public
meeting is not required for the new sign.
“It definitely says ‘municipally owned parks and
playgrounds … beaches and swimming areas’,” read
Board of Health member John Howard suggested
placing the sign right at the driveway entrance to the
beach and foregoing providing a receptacle for smokers’
cigarette butts.
“If they want to stand in the middle of the public
road and get hit by a car…” said Howard, then so be it.
The board also plans to place a ‘No Smoking’ sign
at Washburn Park.
In a somewhat related matter, the board,
concerned about synthetic marijuana, sought to
investigate whether it is within its purview to set
regulations banning synthetic drug substances from sale
in town.
Walega said Town Counsel Jon Whitten, who
recently reviewed the matter, does not believe the Board
of Health should have such regulations at this time.

“I say we just do it,” said BOH Chairman Betsy
The rest of the board preferred to hold off so
things could be done in the proper manner, while Walega
said she contacted Marion Police Chief Lincoln Miller
about police oversight of synthetic marijuana.
“He still hasn’t gotten back to me,” Walega said.
“So he put it on the back burner.”
Reynolds asked about what the board can do
now to regulate the sale of the synthetic drug in town.
“I don’t know,” replied Dunn.

Mattapoisett Conservation Commission
By Marilou Newell
Ted Gowdy of Aerie Homes of Waltham, the
developer of high-end residences at The Preserve at the
Bay Club, apologized during the May 23 meeting of the
Mattapoisett Conservation Commission for several site
work issues previously raised by Conservation Agent
Elizabeth Leidhold.
Gowdy confirmed that Leidhold had brought
such matters as water being pumped into designated

wetlands and concrete spills near buffer zones to his
attention weeks ago during an on-site visit. He said that
several days later, those matters had been rectified.
Gowdy said the water that was being pumped
was clean water, and it was a miscommunication between
Leidhold and himself that had led him to believe that
activity was acceptable. He also said that concrete waste
had been cleaned up.
Chairman Bob Rogers thanked him for bringing
that to the attention of the commission as they moved on
to the three filings Gowdy was present to discuss.
First was a Request for Determination of
Applicability for 146 Fieldstone Drive for the building of
a single-family home.
Rogers said that use of doubled-stacked hay
bales versus straw would provide better erosion control
throughout the site. Gowdy said that hay bales had been
hard to find, which prompted commissioner Mike King to
say, “Hay will be available locally in a couple of weeks.”
Gowdy said his crew had recently found some and
procured them from a local farmer.
The commissioners granted the project a Negative
3 determination, additionally requiring permanent
markers denote the 50-foot buffer zone and several other
special conditions to ensure good erosion controls were in
Next, Gowdy discussed a Notice of Intent filing
for 107 Fieldstone Drive for the construction of a singlefamily home and driveway within the buffer zone of a
bordering vegetated wetland. He was asked if the Natural
Heritage & Endangered Species Program had responded
to his request for comment. He said he had not pursued
that yet, but assured the commissioners that the agency’s
comments thus far had been neutral.
“A very strict commission would continue this
[hearing] until Natural Heritage responded,” said Rogers.
“I don’t want to ignore them.”
King then displayed a job site photograph, noting
that it appeared that “erosion controls are non-existent.”
Gowdy responded that those were eight or nine
years old, “We are putting new erosion controls in as we
go along,” he stated.

King continued, however, saying it appears that a
slope was eroding into wetlands.
“We are in a transition,” said Gowdy. “Once
approved, new controls will be put in place.”
The commissioners felt they could approve the
application with special conditions of confirmation from
Natural Heritage, at which time Gowdy would return
for an amended Order of Conditions, and that abutter
notifications would be verified. They also asked for
permanent markers for wetlands.
The last filing Gowdy discussed was a continued
request for a partial certificate of compliance. The
commissioners weren’t satisfied with the sparse details
from Outback Engineering for work completed on 108
Fieldstone Drive, a storm water detention basin.
Rogers said he needed to see the differences
between approved plans and as-built. He also wondered
if the Planning Board had any comment regarding the

until these questions could be answered. Gowdy
Earlier in the evening, Boy Scout Davis Mathieu,
joined by Mattapoisett Land Trust Chairman Mike
Huguenin and member Paul Osenkowski, came before
the commission seeking approval for Mathieu’s Eagle
Scout project. Mathieu plans to build a bird observation
stand at the Walega-Livingstone Preserve. The 8x6-foot
platform will be supported by 5-foot pilings secured on
four Sonotubes.
“It will be enjoyable for anyone going in there,”
said Rogers, adding, “We are fortunate to have Boy Scouts
to do projects like this.”
Late into the proceeding, Peter Chmiel, 10
Brandt Island Road, who had been invited to discuss
disturbances near a buffer zone on his property, met with
the commissioners.
“We are willing to cooperate with you,” said
Chmiel, as he explained the clearing and cleaning he had

ORR Turns Vegas (for a Night)
ORR Update
By Sienna Wurl
Twinkling lights offset the darkness of the sky on
Saturday, May 21, the evening of the annual Junior SemiFormal Dance.
The students, most of whom had been preparing
outfits, hair, dates, and everything else for months, arrived
at Old Rochester at around 6:30 pm. A line was formed in
the courtyard, which was decorated with sparkling lights
and a small fountain surrounded by beautiful plants.
The theme, Las Vegas, was embodied through the
artful decorations created by a committee of parents in
charge of sprucing up the courtyard and cafeteria for the
dance. As the doors opened, students were greeted with
a cafeteria straight out of Vegas itself – an Elvis cardboard
cutout, sets of cards and a poker chips (all personalized
with “ORR Junior Semi”) for every person, an abundance
of large dice, and a chandelier made of ribbons of lights
adorning the center of the ceiling. After everyone had
found a table at which to sit, it was announced that food
was ready.
On The Go catered the event, serving an
abundance of delicious food, from chicken fingers and
fries, to mashed potatoes, salad, and chicken-broccoli-ziti.
After most of the students had finished eating, there was a
general consensus to move the party to the dance floor.

to an extremely diverse playlist. It included everything

everybody knows, like Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice.
Throughout the night, groups of friends made
their way to the back of the cafeteria, where a photo
booth had been set up with props ranging from boas and
cowboy hats, to crazy sunglasses and devil horns.
At 11:00 pm, the music slowed to a stop,
signifying the end of the dance. Those who were
attending the after-party held in the school’s gym grabbed
their things and changed into comfortable clothing

The after-party came to a close at 5:00 am, and
students grabbed their stuff and shuffled to their cars to,
hopefully, sleep the day away.

its after-party) seemed to be very happy with the way
it came together. The freedom to do what they wanted
seemed to be the best part, as explained by Emily Newell:

between the dance and the sleepover. It was cool that we
got to do or try so many different things.”
Students felt that the way the dance itself was set
up worked well.
“I liked the arrangement,” said Krishna Patel.
“How there was a photo booth, and how there were
people serving food there.” It made for a very smoothflowing night.
At any dance, music choice is, arguably, the
paramount factor in determining whether or not
the dance was successful. One bad song can kill the
excitement almost immediately. But for Semi, the students
generally felt good about the way the music was selected,
as Emma Cadieux said: “For the most part, music
requests were listened to, and you could tell that mostly,
the music was chosen by the students.”
All in all, the Junior Semi Formal was a smashing
success, and the students who attended appeared to
thoroughly enjoy themselves.

Bobbi Krein is the director of the Summer
Program and is very excited to begin this next year of
“Tabor Academy is the perfect location for a
summer camp,” said Krein.
Since it’s right on the water but also has access
to all the opportunities that Tabor’s facilities provide,
there are a wide range of activities for kids to try. There
are programs geared towards marine science, sailing,
and swimming, and other land-based ones like ceramics,
photography, squash, soccer, and lacrosse.
“One of the coolest things we do,” said Krein,
“is we have enrichment programs like drone technology,
GoPro, The Incredible Machine (which is a look at the
human body), and Crack the Cube (a strategy-based
course designed to teach campers the tools to solve
puzzles like the Rubik’s Cube).”

“The program is built to nurture risk-taking in
a supportive and loving environment,” said Krein, who
sends her own kids to the summer program every year.
She says her daughter loves sailing, Ultimate Frisbee,
and fitness, and her son loves squash, soccer, and drama.
They’ve both been able to take “safe-risks” at Tabor,
exploring new passions and putting themselves outside
their comfort zone in comfortable ways.
“Professionally, I love offering young people
and not-so-young people the opportunity to take on
new challenges and build talents in areas that they never
imagined,” said Krein. “Our staff is able to get creative
and build offerings that are engaging and fun, while
interacting with the campers in our program. We create a
culture of ‘be who you want to be and do what you want
to do,’ so kids feel safe and supported to try new things.”
Krein loves that, in addition to all their work,
“We also have an insane amount of fun while keeping
safety and camper happiness at the center of our goals
and mission.”
Following this belief in safety, sunscreen
dispensers will be added to Tabor campus so that
students and counsellors can stay safe and not sunburnt
throughout the many days spent on the waterfront.
Krein sums up the camp nicely by saying, “the
TASP values are respect, community, caring, growth,
connection, and joy.”

Many current Tabor students were once campers,

Girls’ Track, Boys’ Tennis Win SCC Titles
ORR Sports Update
By Patrick Briand
Two ORR teams became SCC Champions this
week: Boys’ Tennis and Girls’ Track. The boys clinched
with a Friday win over D-R, while the girls won a meet
over Seekonk and Voke that gave them at least a share
of the #1 spot and won the SCC championship meet to
further cement their glory. Boys’ Track also had a good
week by beating Seekonk and Voke and finishing second
to Dighton-Rehoboth at the SCC meet, while Baseball
notched three wins.
Baseball: The Bulldogs were at Wareham High
under the lights on Monday night. The game was a
back-and-forth battle that went to nine innings, but
ultimately the boys lost 8-7. On Tuesday, the boys got a
nice comeback win over Bourne, which ended their losing
streak. Senior pitcher Bryant Salkind was excellent,
allowing just four hits over seven innings enroute to the
win. They were on the road again on Wednesday night
to play GNB Voc-Tech. Junior Will Hopkins threw a
The Wanderer
May 26, 2016
gem, allowing just one run, three hits and three walks
in a complete game. Salkind’s two-run singles scored
sophomore Jake Asiaf and senior Hunter Parker, giving
Hopkins all the run support he needed to win a 2-1 game.
The game also marked Head Coach Steve Carvalho’s
200th win. On Friday, the ‘Dogs came back home to face
off against Apponequet. Junior Sam Henrie returned from
an appendectomy to fire six innings of two hit balls with
10 strikeouts to get the win in a 10-1 rout of Apponequet.
Salkind had another strong day at the plate, going 3-for-3
with two RBIs, while sophomore Mike Kennefick had
three hits and Parker added two plus a walk. This week,
the guys are playing Case at home on Monday before
traveling to Bourne on Wednesday and coming back
home on Friday to play Fairhaven.
Softball: The Lady Bulldogs began their week
with a night game against Wareham High on Monday,
which they lost 11-4. They were also away at GNB VocTech against the Lady Bears on Wednesday afternoon,
losing 5-1. Their sole hit in the game was a single courtesy
of senior Courtney Dextradeur. On Thursday, the team
traveled to Fairhaven to play the Lady Blue Devils in a
make-up game at Hastings Middle School. They lost 3-1,
despite good pitching from senior Deianeira Underhill.
Junior Hannah Guard knocked in the team’s only run
with a single. Finally, they played Apponequet at home on
Friday night. Underhill got the win this time as she finally
got some good run support. Junior Olivia Labbe had a
single, a triple, and three RBIs, while sophomore Sophie
Hubbard had a pair of hits. The girls are away against
Case at Elizabeth S. Brown Elementary on Monday. They
then have a pair of road non-conference games: against
Bishop Stang on Tuesday and Coyle & Cassidy on Friday.
Boys’ Lacrosse: The Bulldogs were home against
non-conference Archbishop Williams on Wednesday.
They lost 10-8 in a tough game that featured three goals
from star junior Landon Gougen. On Friday, the boys
were away versus non-conference Sandwich High.
Unfortunately, they let a 4-2 deficit at halftime turn into
a 14-4 loss. Gougen scored twice, while the other goals
came from sophomores Alex Lorenz and Zak LaBonte.
They will be home against non-conference Dartmouth
High in a rescheduled game this Thursday.
Girls’ Lacrosse: The Lady Bulldogs played nonconference Sandwich High in a rematch on Monday,
losing 15-11. The girls will play this week at nonconference Bishop Stang on Monday.
Boys’ Track: On Tuesday, the Bulldogs began
their week with a tri-meet against Seekonk and GNB
Voc-Tech at New Bedford Voc. The team won both meets,
which included wins from sophomore Evan Tilley in
the 2-mile and junior Eli Spevack in the 400m hurdles.
The annual SCC Championship meet took place at
Apponequet on Friday. The Bulldogs finished second
behind a number of strong performances. Among the
contributors were sophomore Harry Smith (100m), senior
Jared Wheeler (mile), Spevack (400m hurdles), and senior
2 Main Street, Acushnet
James Estudante (shot put). Junior Danny Renwick was
extremely impressive, winning the 400m hurdles (58.5),
11m hurdles (15.2), and high jump (6-2). This week, the
Bulldogs run against Bourne on Monday and send most
of their top runners to the D-4 State Meet at Norwell High
School on Saturday.
Girls’ Track: The girls faced off with Seekonk’s
Lady Warriors and GNB Voc-Tech’s Lady Bears in a trimeet on Tuesday in New Bedford. The Lady Bulldogs
won on both fronts, marching closer to an undefeated
season. In the win, senior Zoe Smith took the 100m
hurdles and fellow senior Emily Josephson won the
2-mile. Most athletes competed in the SCC Championship
meet at Apponequet on Friday. The girls took an easy
win, powered by strong performances from Smith
(100m hurdles, 4x100m relay) junior Avery Nugent (5:37
mile), freshman Maya Doonan (100m), and sophomore
Caroline Murphy (400m hurdles). Senior Nicole Mattson
won the triple jump (33-8) while fellow senior Maddie
Meyer won the 2-mile (11:57). Smith and Doonan also
teamed up with sophomore Rachel Demmer and senior
Lauren Ovian to win the 4x100m relay. The girls compete
against Bourne on Monday and then participate in the
D-4 State Meet at Norwell High School on Saturday.
Boys’ Tennis: The Bulldogs’ first game of their
busy week was at Apponequet on Monday afternoon.
The team played Caleb Jagoda (Jr.), Maxxon Wolski
(Jr.), and Geoffrey Noonan (Fr.) at singles, and all three

Movie Review
One Stooge
By Rob Gonsalves
Deadpool. Starring Ryan Reynolds and Morena
Baccarin. Directed by Tim Miller. Running time: 108
minutes. MPAA rating: R.
Deadpool is a superhero movie for people who
hate — or have grown to hate — superhero movies. As
the man himself — Special Forces retiree and current
mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), aka Deadpool
— will be the first to tell you, he isn’t a hero. His
superpowers (mutant healing abilities) are granted to him
as a side effect of curing his cancer; another side effect,
alas, leaves him scarred. Deadpool’s entire goal in the
movie is to convince the man responsible for his powers
and scars, the British snot Ajax (Ed Skrein), to undo his
scars so he can get back together with his fiancée Vanessa
(Morena Baccarin). Save the world? Save the city? Save
the block? Nah.
Deadpool nonetheless behaves much like a
superhero, in that he fights bad guys, except for the part
where he kills them. While Batman v Superman and Captain
America: Civil War agonize over metahumans taking lives,
either purposely or accidentally, here comes chipper,
cavorting Deadpool to separate many, many heads and
limbs from their bodies when he isn’t shooting said bodies
full of holes. And all so that his ex-escort girlfriend — for
which occupation she is never shamed — won’t find
his face repellent. In other words, Deadpool gives up the
pretense even of fighting for a greater good, unlike even
such a cynical antisuperhero satire as Kick-Ass. Deadpool
is highly sexed and violent and foulmouthed, and he sees
no reason not to be. Perhaps not coincidentally, the movie
broke many box-office records upon its February release.
Amusingly, this is tangentially an X-Men movie,
as it features two members of that mutant superhero team:
the stolid Russian man of steel Colossus, and a character

Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand),

Ajax’s right-hand woman Angel Dust, played by Gina
Carano, who seems to have resigned herself to the fact
that she can’t act and attitudinizes accordingly. Anyway,
few will laugh louder than I if this disreputable, R-rated
red-hooded stepchild actually outgrosses the legit X-Men
film opening soon.
Directed by Tim Miller, formerly a visualeffects guru, Deadpool makes the most of its peanuts-bysuperhero-standards $58 million. The action is hyperviolent but sunny and weightless; it lacks the sadistic stab
of the slaughter scenes in Kick-Ass. This movie, unlike
Kick-Ass, isn’t trying to moralize with its violence — it’s
just PlayStation shoot-the-works splatter with a sneer and
a gibe. It never pretends to be “real.” On the other hand,
there’s some genuine pathos in Wade’s health situation;
he doesn’t want Vanessa to have to watch him die, so he
absents himself from her life. She’s appropriately enraged
by this. Vanessa, like the other women in the film, takes
no crap, and Baccarin has perhaps never been better.
Vanessa’s and Wade’s relationship is built on shared
callous jokes and fierce sex; since they’re never really
romanticized, they come off all the more romantic.
As for Reynolds, this is the role he was made for,
and he tears into it as if to make up for the ridiculously
terrible earlier version of Deadpool he played in X-Men
Origins: Wolverine. He’s a good and funny actor, and
he doesn’t deserve to be haunted by the emerald ghost
of Green Lantern for the rest of his life. Reynolds has,
improbably, baked his personality into a role in which we
almost never see his face. He wants to have good dirty
fun and to share it with us. Deadpool is the sort of popculture offense all the uptight moralizers always warn
you about — a hero-myth with the soul of Larry Flynt.

To the Editor:
I attended the Mattapoisett Town Meeting as I
have done for 32 years. I was particularly interested in the
discussion regarding the purchase of the Holy Ghost land
on Park Street. I asked if this land would be for recreation
and open space only or could the town consider building
more housing for the elderly. A selectman answered
there will be no elderly housing on this land. He did not
acknowledge that there was a need for more affordable
housing for the elderly.
This past summer, I was confronted with the
lack of affordable housing in Mattapoisett. I had to find
an apartment in three months, and I wanted to remain
in Mattapoisett where I had lived with my family for
32 years. Though I am an elder, I was not ready to live
in elderly housing. I was unable to find an apartment
that I could afford in town and I resigned myself to

Dartmouth, I received a call from a Mattapoisett landlord
that an affordable, beautiful apartment had become
available. I know how fortunate I am to still be living in
Mattapoisett where my son and his family live.
Those of us who have lived in Mattapoisett for
years and contributed to the life of this community should
be able to continue to live here in our later years. It is
in our interest to make the community at large and the
selectman aware of the need for more affordable housing
in Mattapoisett.

The Marion Natural History Museum’s after

Island, thanks to Isaac Perry and the Marion
Harbormaster’s group. Another group of

was in the forecast all week, the over 150 participants
lucked out with only partly cloudy skies. Photos by Colin Veitch

Senior Projects at Tabor Academy
It’s that time of year – Tabor Academy seniors are
showing off all of the hard work they have put into their
senior projects this spring. Senior project presentations are
underway at the school this week, and all the projects are
presented in abstract on Friday morning.
Senior Projects allow seniors in good academic
standing to drop classes in the last seven weeks as
necessary in order to pursue a project of their own
creation. Projects typically include original art and music,
all manner of building projects from boats to motorcycles,
and internships in business, government and nonprofit
organizations from architectural firms and catering
kitchens to hospitals. The Senior Projects Committee
approves the projects after a rigorous application process.
Some examples from this year include restoring
a dory, performing an original stand-up comedy routine,
writing and performing an original play, creating an
album of original music, and creating native costumes
from the Caribbean, as well as various internships and
research projects.
On Friday, the entire Tabor community attends
Senior Project presentations, a capstone event that allows
the seniors to show all they have learned during the
project period.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Home conditions still demand attention. Also, keep an
open mind about a sudden question of trust
involving a close friend. All the facts are not
yet in.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) With summer
just around the corner, travel begins to dominate your sign. Make plans carefully to avoid
potential problems in the first half of June.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A romantic
Libra sets a challenge that your “sensible”
side might question, but your idealistic self
finds the prospect too intriguing to resist. The
choice is yours.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Those tense
times in your personal life are just about
over. Concentrate on reaffirming relationships. Your love of travel opens a surprising
new opportunity.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cat
usually loves to be in the center of things.
But this week it might be wiser to watch and
learn from the sidelines. A Pisces wants to
make you purr.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) “New”
is your watchword this week. Be open to new
ideas, both on the job and in your personal
life. A romantic Aries or Sagittarian beckons.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Some
difficult family decisions have to be faced,
but be sure to get more facts before you act.
Be careful not to neglect your health during
this trying time.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You
still need to support a loved one through a
difficult time. Meanwhile, things continue to
work out to your benefit in the workplace.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
21) Aspects continue to favor expanding
social opportunities. A Gemini reaches out to
offer a chance for re-establishing a onceclose relationship.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
There’s a potential for misunderstanding in
both your job and your personal life. A full
explanation of your intentions helps smooth
things over.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
You might be feeling restless on the job,
but delay making any major moves until all
the facts are in. A Scorpio has a surprising
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your
business sense works to your advantage as
you sort through the possibilities that are
opening up. A Libra is Cupid’s best bet for
your romantic prospects.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for
being open-minded about people. This helps
you make friends easily. You would do very
well in public service.

My dog is a 10 year old mutt. He has been drinking a
lot more water for the past 6 months. At first I thought
it was because the house was dry in the winter but
now I’m not so sure. Is this a problem?
A change in the water consumption habits of
either a dog or cat can be an important sign of
illness. There are about 15 different disorders such
as diabetes, kidney disease, and some hormone
problems that present themselves initially as
increased thirst or excessive urination. It is very
important to discuss a change in your pets water
consumption with your veterinarian as a delay in
diagnosis may result in more severe illness.

success in the college process. According to Kerry
Saltonstall, Director of Communications, ninety percent of
the class applied to a most or highly competitive college
according to Barron’s Guide, while seventy-six percent
of the class found success in that very competitive pool
of schools. Eighty-seven percent were admitted to one of
their top three choices.
Tabor begins Commencement Weekend with a
Baccalaureate Service on Sunday, May 29, the night before
diplomas are received. As is the school’s custom, a parent
of a senior is typically invited to address the class. This
year, Mrs. Angela Dawicki (mother of Hannah Dawicki
of Fairhaven) will be the speaker. Angela holds a B.S. and
a M.S. in biomedical engineering from Tulane University.
In 1995, Angela and her husband Eric purchased the
Northeast Maritime Institute, which offers maritime
education for professional mariners. In 2014, under
their leadership, the Institute received degree-granting
authority from the Massachusetts Department of Higher
Education and began offering an Associate in Applied
Science in Nautical Science degree program in 2015.
While Angela has held many roles at the Institute, she is
currently the Chief Academic Officer.
The celebration continues the next day with
a formal procession of the seniors, surrounded by
underclassmen, parents, families, friends, and faculty.
After a greeting from the Head of School, John Quirk,
and the Chair of the Board of Trustees, Carmine
Martignetti ’71 (Marion), the Class of 2016 will hear from
the student Co-Heads of School, classmates Mary Kate
McIntire (Mattapoisett) and Oliver Sughrue (Marion).
Following a musical interlude, Richard Roller, Senior
Master and Director of College Counseling, will give
the Commencement Address. Mr. Roller and his wife,
Joan, are retiring from Tabor after 46 years of service.
Rich Roller has served the school in many and varied
administrative roles, most recently as Dean of Faculty,
Director of College Counseling, Assistant Head and
Senior Master. And, over the decades, he and Joan have
worn many hats: as teachers, coaches, and house parents,
working with four of Tabor’s nine Heads of School.
After the Commencement Address, the business

Yes, There Was Life Before Video Games
Growing up in Rochester in the 1950s was quite
different than it is today. Back in the day, there were no
iPhones, iPads or iTunes.
The Rochester Historical Society is sponsoring a
writing contest for Rochester’s youth between the ages of
12-14 years old. The essay, minimum of one page, should
compare the differences of playtime activities of 12-14
year old children in the 1950s in Rochester with what 1214 years old kids do today for fun.
Ask your parents, your grandparents, your
neighbors, or visit the Historical Society’s museum to
help you unlock the ideas for your essay. What would you
do without your iPad? What would you be doing if you
couldn’t text or Tweet your friends or watch videos? You
might be surprised at all the things Rochester kids of the
1950s did for fun.
The top three essays will be announced at the
Historical Society Booth at the Rochester Country Fair in
August. First prize will be $100; 2nd prize will be $75; 3rd
prize will be $50. Submissions must be postmarked no
later than August 1. Please mail your entry to Rochester
Historical Society, P.O. Box 171, Rochester, MA 02770.
Please include your name, address and age on your essay.
Any questions, call Edyie at 508-961-7401.
So Rochester kids between the ages of 12- 14,
put down your iPads and pick up your pencils. We look
forward to reading your essays.
Family Fun Field Day
Despite its well-established presence in the North
Atlantic, the white shark is not considered an abundant
species and efforts to study its life history and ecology
have been hampered by the inability of researchers to
predictably encounter these sharks. However, with the
protection of marine mammals over the last 40 years,
the western North Atlantic gray seal population has
rebounded and there is strong evidence that white sharks
have expanded their foraging strategies to include active
predation on these animals off Cape Cod, MA. For the
first time, researchers have predictable access to white
sharks in the North Atlantic. This presentation will
highlight the results of this research. The program will be
on June 10 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm at the Marion Music Hall,
Join the Mattapoisett Lions Club for a Free
Family Fun Field Day to promote diabetes awareness
on June 11 from 9:00 - 11:00 am at Veteran’s Park (Ned’s
Point Lighthouse). Games will include wheelbarrow
races, egg toss, three-legged race, sack race and more!
Nutritious snacks and water will be provided. No preregistration necessary. No charge! Bring your family and
enjoy a beautiful morning while learning about diabetes
awareness. Sponsored by the Mattapoisett Lions Club.

I Found the Aardvark!
Each week, hidden somewhere in the pages of The Wanderer is a tiny drawing of an aardvark. The little guy you are looking for
looks exactly like the one pictured above (but don’t put down this page as your answer, there’s another one hidden somewhere in
this issue).
Once you find the aardvark you can submit your answer online and if you are right you will get Aardvark Points! You can
then use these points to get cool Aardvark Prizes!
