Warm farewell to Lynnfield Public Schools retiring staff By Melanie Higgins


t the School Committee meeting last Tuesday night, the town said goodbye to some of its educators and administrators. The committee honors its retirees at this time every year. A mentor and trusted colleague, a beloved teacher, a longtime secretary, a friendly school psychologist and a Latin program advocate – the committee honored Linda DaCorta, Odille Hanley, Linda LaGreca, Kathryn Kenney and Margaret McGill at the meeting. In the dedication ceremony, Chairperson Tim Doyle, on behalf of the school committee, read off ac-

complishments of the staff and presented each with a small parting gift in thanks for their service. School officials said goodbye to Linda DaCorta, who worked as a teacher for 40 years. She began working for the Middle School in 1987. “Her tenure in Lynnfield has made a difference in so many of our students’ lives,” Doyle said. “Linda has the unique ability to comfort and nurture as she challenges and motivates students. Students thrive under Linda’s leadership.” “I’ve enjoyed every minute of [working here]. I’ll miss it,” DaCorta said. A 1st grade teacher for 13 years, Odille Hanley began

ast Friday, 152 Lynnfield High School seniors graduated, beginning a new chapter in their lives. Assembled in the high school gymnasium – the last place they would all be together – students celebrated their accomplishment and observed the magnitude of the moment that would demarcate childhood from adulthood. This year, most Lynnfield grads will be going to college. Others will be taking a break, pursuing trades, serving in the military or exploring other paths in their lives. But they will

always have the strong foundation of a Lynnfield education behind them. “The foundation you have all provided us with during our time at Lynnfield High School has ensured our future success wherever we may end up,” said Caroline Buckley, the class valedictorian. “Our hard work has certainly paid off, and it is bittersweet to say that we have officially made it.” Buckley additionally encouraged her classmates not to be afraid of making mistakes, stating that they can only help you

He also volunteered from June 1776 until January 1777 at Fort Ticonderoga.

Poughkeepsie, N.Y., under the command of General Rufus Putnam. Later he was discharged from Fishkill from where he walked home again. By 1779 he was tired of land duty (and, no doubt, of walking) and decided to try his luck at privateering, a lucrative but risky business. By July he was engaged in the Penobscot Expedition under Commodore Dudley Saltonstall. When the American fleet was in danger of being captured by the British while at anchor, Newhall jumped overboard and swam ashore. Undaunted, he soon joined another privateer as a gunner. In this capacity he “was wounded by grapeshot which entered his mouth, passed out under his ear, and struck his shoulder.” Recovering from these serious injuries, he continued naval service until the end of the War. Shortly thereafter, he moved to New Ipswich, N.H., where he married twice and fathered six children.

Fifty years later at Bunker Hill On land ’n sea When the cornerstone for The following year he served the Bunker Hill Monument on the Hudson River near was laid on June 17, 1825, all Revolutionary War veterans were invited to participate in the elaborate ceremonies. Only three Lynn area soldiers attended, including the sturdy Newhall who had journeyed from New Hampshire. Each was offered three dollars for “travel expenses.” He and the other venerable survivors received much attention from dignitaries at the event, including from the aging General Lafayette himself. Newhall then returned to New Ipswich, where he died peaceably in 1833 at age 76. Perhaps Onesimus Newhall would not have considered his military experiences as extraordinary. Yet, centuries later, we in Lynnfield can share pride in his service to our town and to am to Midnight the nation.

Lynnfield business recognized for community service L

ast month in Worcester, the annual meeting of the Satellite Agency Network (SAN), a professional group for independent insurance agencies, took place at the DCU Center. There were approximately 300 independent insurance agency owners in attendance. Agency awards in various categories were presented. Soderberg Insurance Services received the Organization’s Community Service Award. SAN CFO Frank Waters stated, “The SAN Award for Outstanding Community Service highlights community service as an important element of the independent agency in the communities they serve. This award recognizes this Lynnfield, Mass. agency for making significant contributions through their volunteerism, community service and outreach.” He continued, “Frances Roderick Soderberg, co-founder of Soderberg Insurance Services, was an active member of the Lynnfield community, and her community involvement was widespread. Sadly, Fran passed away peacefully earlier this year on February 27, 2017. She was instrumental in raising awareness of special needs individu-

“As further evidence of the agency’s community involvement, each year Soderberg Insurance Services hosts an annual food drive in assist individuals who have fallen into homelessness.

Pack 47 and 48 Cub Scouts enjoy Pinewood Derby

Lynnfield’s cub scouts cheering on Pinewood Derby races.

Submitted by Patrick G. Curley


ynnfield Cub Scout Packs 47 and 48 recently enjoyed a very successful Pinewood Derby. The Pinewood Derby is one of the pinnacle events of Cub Scouting.It involves each Scout building a model racing car from a simple kit that includes a block of wood, four small plastic wheels, and four nails to be used as axels.The Scouts design their race cars from their own imagination and use tools (with appropriate help from parents) to carve the block of wood. At the Derby, dozens of Cub Scouts ranging in age from first through fifth grades scream and cheer as the blazing fast

cars race down the track towards the finish line. In addition to the top three finishers at each level of scouting, recognition and prizes were awarded to cars in a variety of categories including Most Scary Design, Most Patriotic Design, and Best Brakes (aka the slowest car in the competition). Centre Congregational Church of Lynnfield kindly hosted the event in its all purpose room on the lower level. Scouts and their parents set up the 30+ foot long track with an electronic timer down to capture race times down to the hundredths of a second.The track accommodated six cars for each race, and the race results were projected onto the

wall for the enjoyment of the cheering Scouts and their family members. Refreshments were generously donated by Paul Bergeron, VP – Sr. Financial Consultant of Charles Schwab at MarketStreet, Lynnfield. Cub Scouting is open to new members year-round.If your son would like to sign up, please contact Pack 48 Leader 18 Mos CD Tes 1 6/2/2017 Jim Squadrito at 978.501.1776.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on roll calls from late May sessions. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. $100,000 FOR STUDYING EARLY EDUC ATION AND CARE WORKFORCE (S 3) S enate 38-0, approved an amendment providing $100,000 for a study by UMass Boston of the early education and care workforce. Amendment suppor ters said this will help develop a plan to attract new and retain existing early education and care workers who are underpaid but are crucial to our children’s education. ( A “ Ye s ” vo t e i s f o r t h e amendment.) Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee Yes EPINEPHRINE BULK PURCHASE PROGRAM (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment creating a Municipal Epinephrine Bulk Purchase Program that will allow cities and towns to save money on their purchase of epinephrine for m u ni c i pal fi r s t resp o n ders agencies and schools. Epinephrine is a drug that treats life -threatening allergic reactions caused by a variety of things including an insect bite or sting, food, medication and latex. Amendment suppor ters said the cost of a pair of life-saving EpiPens has skyrocketed from $100 in 2006 to $608 in 2017. They noted that this price gouging by the maker Mylan has made the EpiPen unaffordable to many people who need them and has sadly resulted in deaths. They argued that banding together and bulkpurchasing allows the government to negotiate with the manufacturer to get the lowest price. ( A “ Ye s ” vo t e i s f o r t h e amendment.) Sen.

MEFAP provides quality and healthy foods and locally grown fresh produce to a statewide network of over 800 emergency food providers who distribute the food to lowincome families. Amendment suppor ters said this program, established in 1995, has fed hundreds of thousands of people.

Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and

M Electrical Company, Inc., the leader in advanced automated building system installations, today announced that it has completed project operations at Bristol County Sheriff’s Office, a correctional facility in Dartmouth. JM staff worked with energy leaders to complete a full energy upgrade of the entire campus. This included upgrading the hot and chilled water systems, Air Handling Units (AHUs), and miscellaneous HVAC equipment throughout the jail. The renovations to the

equipment allow the facility to now effectively optimize its energy, saving Bristol County money in the long-term. “Having a streamlined heating, ventilation and cooling system throughout these facilities is essential to maximizing energy use as well as tax dollars,” said Adam Palmer, Project Manager at JM Electrical. “Older, inefficient systems tend to run constantly every day, using energy at times that it is not needed. Upgrading the equipment in the facility enables more efficient energy use, ultimately

saving the prison money.” The energy conservation initiative at Bristol County was a Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) project. DCAMM is responsible for many major public building construction, facilities management, and other services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. JM Electrical’s team of five electricians over the course of the six month project ensured that it was completed on time

Lynnfield Jakes assist with six alarm Reading blaze By Melanie Higgins


ynnfield played a role in a giant blaze in Reading on Thursday, June 1st. At around 2pm on Thursday, Lynnfield responded to a giant fire at a condominium complex at 52 Sanborn Rd. in Reading. The fire department utilized its new pumper, which it just received last month and had been placed into service just the day before. In a phone call to the Advocate, Lynnfield Fire Chief Mark Tetreault said the truck pumped water for 8 hours and “performed flawlessly”. Lynnfield’s apparatus, Ladder 1 and Engine 1, was in use for around 10 hours. The fire was not extinguished until around 1am the next morning. Paul Jackson, Assistant Chief of Reading Fire thanked Lynnfield for their service in a phone call with the Advocate. He said that Lynnfield’s tow-

er, one of a few on the scene, was “instrumental”. In the conversation, Tetreault called it “the biggest fire this region has seen in a long time.” Jackson echoed Tetreault, calling it “one of the largest fires in our era”. According to a press release from Lynnfield Fire, the fire escalated to 6 alarms as Lynnfield was arriving on the scene. Jackson later said that the fire had exceeded 6 alarms. He added that around 100 firefighters from surrounding communities, including Lynnfield, helped douse the blaze. “With the amount of fire we had visible [...] and unknowing of the amount of occupants in the building it was a very difficult task.” Jackson Lynnfield firefighters assist in the fight against six-alarm blaze at a multi family complex in said.

Conquering the Fear of the Future

Some of the many colorful graduation caps on display at last Friday’s ceremony.


ood evening and welcome to all family and friends gathered here tonight to witness this important milestone in the lives of your sons, daughters, relatives, and friends. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to Superintendent Jane Tremblay, Principal Cleary, even though he could not be here today due to his own daughter’s high school graduation, Vice Principal Bates, School Committee Members, LHS Faculty, and, most importantly, my fellow graduates – the members of Lynnfield High School’s Class of 2017. It is crazy to think that 2017 is already here. It feels like yesterday it was only 2013 and we were all stepping through the doors of Lynnfield High School for the first time as wide-eyed freshmen, nervous about what the next four years would bring. We walked timidly through the halls for weeks, weary of the big and powerful seniors that passed by us on the way to class. In the lunchroom, we were destined for the tables by the wall – not because we were aware of this Lynnfield High tradition, but because, in all honesty, these tables were closer to the teachers, the exit, and meant we avoided having to make the long trek past the upperclassmen when buy-

ing lunch. As freshman, these little things mattered to us. We were all young and naive, and high school was a daunting hurdle in front of us that we each had to find a way to clear. Most of us were scared of messing up, embarrassing ourselves, and making mistakes along the way both in and out of the classroom. Back in 2013, we knew we had a long road ahead of us, each day believing that 2017 was so far into the future that we would never be seniors; let alone be sitting in the chairs that we are today, prepared to walk across this stage, about to land confidently on the opposite side of the hurdle. So much has led up to this year and to this moment. The majority of us sitting here today have been together for the past twelve years. From the time of the rivalry between Summer Street and Huckleberry to the awkward intertwining of the two at the start of middle school, we have all come together, grown, and matured as a whole. Together, we have created countless memories with those sitting next to and around us and have built friendships that we know will last a lifetime. It is with these same people that we have worked tirelessly in the classrooms, on the athletic fields, on the stage, and in all other

activities we have been a part of during our time at LHS. We have shared with each other all of the experiences that high school has to offer and, as seniors about to graduate, can reflect lightly on all the ups and the downs that have molded us into the intelligent and confident young adults that we are today. Our hard work has certainly paid off, and it is bittersweet to say that we have officially made it. Many of us will agree, however, that we could not have accomplished as much as we have without the people in our lives who have supported and encouraged us every single day. For many of us, that begins with our parents. They are the ones who were there for us on those late nights when the stress was too much to bear, who picked us back up when we felt defeated, and who were always there to cheer on our victories. Personally, I would like to thank my mom and dad along with my sister and grandparents for all they have done for me in my life. I would not be standing before you all today without them. In addition to our parents, it is also important that we thank Principal Cleary, Vice Principal Bates, our teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, and everyone else who has served as mentors over these last four years

and have taught us all we have learned – not just about derivatives, figurative language, projectiles, and the Civil War, but about life as well. The foundation you have all provided us with during our time at Lynnfield High School has ensured our future success wherever we may end up. Although this chapter in our lives is ending and a new one is about to begin, I want to remind you all not to leave what you have learned in the past as the lessons that we have acquired at LHS will be essential in clearing the next hurdle awaiting us on the paths that we have chosen to pursue. Today, I want to share with you all one of the most important lessons that I took from my time at LHS in the hopes that it may guide some of you into the next chapter of your lives. Actor Ed Helms put this lesson best when he said, “Don’t be afraid of fear. Because it sharpens you, it challenges you, it makes you stronger; and when you run away from fear, you also run away from the opportunity to be your best possible self.” As many of us venture off to different colleges and universities across the country, there are going to be endless opportunities awaiting us. We will have the opportunity to take a class on a topic that had always secretly interested

us. We will have the opportunity to try a new sport, join a new club, or even start a new club of our own. Most importantly, we will have the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, and form connections that will teach us so much about the world and ourselves. I believe that it is essential that we do not let fear stand in the way of us seizing these opportunities. We must be confident in ourselves and our abilities and approach every new situation with a level of poise and persistence that inhibits fear from convincing us to turn around. Ultimately, the mistakes that we make are what builds our character and make us stronger individuals. Without them, we are unable to reach our full potential. As you walk across this stage today, promise to not let the fear of failure stop you from following your dreams. LHS has provided us with the foundation, and now it is up to us to seize our future and the opportunities that will lead us to success. From the words of English author Neil Gaiman, “Now go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.” Thank you again and congratulations to the class of 2017!

Pioneers baseball team powers past first two postseason foes to advance to North Final Four Lynnfield outscores Saugus, Shawsheen by a combined 18-6 score By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School baseball team (20-2, third seed) has won its first two games in the Division 3 North state tournament – against Saugus (9-13, 19th seed), 8-0, and Shawsheen (17-5, sixth seed), 10-6. They were scheduled to take on Latin Academy (20-2, second seed) on Wednesday, June 7 (after press deadline) in a North semifinal game. Saugus, which defeated North Reading in its preliminary round game, 7-4, couldn’t do much with the Pioneers starting pitcher, Nick Aslanian.

Pioneers starting pitcher Nick Aslanian was a force to be reckoned with against North Reading, scattering two hits and one walk, while fanning six to lead his teammates to their first postseason win in 2017.

He scattered two hits and one

walk, while fanning six to lead his teammates to their first postseason win in 2017. Andre Padovani lofted a sacrifice fly in the second inning to account for Lynnfield’s first run. Mike Federico singled in a run in the third, and he was on the back end of a double steal that pushed the third tally across the plate with catcher Bryant Dana. Jonathan Luders doubled in two in the fifth. Cooper Marengi tripled in a run in the sixth, and he scored on the same play as a result of an errant throw. Coach John O’Brien’s juggernaut remained relentless in the quarterfinal round match-up

against Shawsheen. The Pioneers were on the attack from the start. They put up four first-inning runs capped off by Marengi’s threerun round tripper. Fernando Gonzalez, only a sophomore, threw the first five innings and allowed just three singles and one run. But he issued a couple of free passes in the sixth, and they both scored via an infield error, and Shawsheen was able to trim the deficit in half, 6-3. But the local nine scored four more times in the home half of the frame to regain that safe margin of difference. Kyle Hawes supplied most of the

power during that surge with a two-run double. Justin Juliano took over for Gonzalez in the seventh after the sophomore hurler allowed three more runs. He left with two runners still on base, but with two outs Gonzalez, with a fresh arm, wasted little time to seal the deal to pick up the save. The Lynnfield boys are now just a game away from the North title tilt, and two away from competing for a state championship in a season that – regardless of the ultimate outcome – won’t be forgotten anytime soon by coaches, players and fans alike.

Top-seed Lynnfield tennis waits for Mother Nature before resuming championship run Girls’ tennis team takes down Bishop Fenwick in North quarterfinals to begin States By Joe Mitchell


ecause of the unseasonably cold temperatures and constant rain, the Lynnfield High School girls’ tennis team (17-1, top seed) has had an extended break since shutting out Bishop Fenwick (13-8,

eighth seed), 5-0, on June 3 in a Division 3 North quarterfinal round match. Sarah Mezini got the postseason started in first singles with a 6-1, 6-0 win last Saturday. Camie Foley also won in straight sets in second singles, 6-1, 6-1. Katie Neville blanked

her opponent in third singles, 6-0, 6-0. The first doubles team of Katie Nugent and Alexa Vittiglio came out on top, 6-1, 6-2, and the second doubles tandem of Allison Carey and Laura Mucci did likewise, 6-4, 6-3. Second doubles was the

most competitive match of the day, according to coach Craig Stone. “ There was a great crowd on hand last Saturday with over 100 in attendance,” Stone added. When the rain subsided and the sun finally came out again, the Pioneers played

host to Manchester Essex (133, fourth seed) on Wednesday, June 7 (after press deadline) in a North semifinal matchup. The Hornets blanked Newburyport (13-5, fifth seed) in their North quarterfinal round contest, which also took place last Saturday, June 3.

Girls’ lacrosse team makes history with first-ever state tournament win Loses to Newburyport in the North quarterfinales By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School girls’ lacrosse team (14-6, eighth seed) hosted its first-ever state tournament game on May 31, and came away with a 7-3 win over the visiting St. Mary’s of Lynn Spartans (136, ninth seed) in a Division 2 North first-round game. It was the program’s first state tournament victory. “There were errors by both teams early on, which kept the scoring down,” said coach Ethan Blanchette. “As a result, we had a 3-1 lead at the half.” St. Mary’s struck first in the second half to close the gap to 3-2. Then Ashley Barrett

scored her first of two goals to get it right back. But St. Mary’s notched the next marker to trim the deficit to one, once again, before senior captain Lilli Patterson scored to regain that elusive two-goal advantage. Liv Smyrnios scored her second goal of the game with just over a minute left to play to seal the deal. The Lynnfield girls were then able to secure the ensuing draw to run out the clock. The Spartans were able to keep the game close, because of the draws in which they held a 8-4 advantage, but the Lynnfield defense limited their opportunities throughout the contest, and when St. Mary’s did get shooting opportuni-

ties, goalie Lauren Vaccaro was there more often than not to come up with the clutch stop. She made six saves. Patterson caused four turnovers, and Caroline Buckley, Lila Alaka, Sophia Ellis and Smyrnios each picked up three groundballs. Gracie Sperling and Olivia Sarni scored one goal apiece to factor into the offense. But then the locals ran into a buzz saw in Newburyport, when the Clippers (18-0, top seed) dominated the action to easily win the North quarterfinal round game, 19-1. Newburyport jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. They led, 11-0, at halftime, and

continued to apply the pressure in the second half. Sperling was one of the standouts for Lynnfield, picking up four groundballs and winning two draws, while it was sophomore Ashley Barrett who scored the lone Pioneer goal late in the game. While Lynnfield did not play one of its most inspired games on this day, according to Blanchette, the season was still one to remember. The Lynnfield girls set records for most wins (14) and fewest goals allowed (137) over the course of 20 games, which included a home tournament victory – again a first in the program’s young history.

Savvy Senior

The Nutritionist Corner

Take Control of Your Health

by Jim Miller

Best Bicycles for Aging Baby Boomers Dear Savvy Senior, My husband and I are interested in getting a couple of bicycles for leisurely exercise and fun, and would like to get your recommendation. We’re both approaching 60 and are a little overweight, and it’s been a while since we rode. Easy Riders Dear Easy, If you’re interested in leisurely, recreational riding for fitness and fun, a great option is a “comfort bike,” which is very popular among baby boomers. Here’s what you should know about this option, along with some tips to help you shop and choose. Comfort Bikes A comfort bike is a style of bicycle that’s easy on an aging body because it lets you ride in a more comfortable upright position. These bikes have high handlebars so you don’t have to hunch over, which eases lower-back strain and reduces pressure on the wrists and hands. They also come with wide tires for a smooth ride, offer fewer gears, and have soft, wide seats to eliminate saddle soreness. Most comfort bikes also come with shock-absorbing forks and seat posts for additional comfort. And some offer unique design features like an ultra low step-over bar that makes getting on and off easy for people with limited flexibility (like the Biria Easy Boarding at, or the “flat-foot” design offered by many manufacturers where the pedals are moved forward, away from the seat. This allows you to get a full-leg extension when you pedal, but keeps the seat in a lower position so when you’re stopped, you can put your feet down flat on the ground while seated, which is a great safety feature for older riders. Most major manufacturers including Electra, Sun, Raleigh, GT, Giant, and Trek all make a line of comfort bikes that costs between $300 and $800 or more depending on its features. Shopping Tips To find a quality comfort bike, your best option is to find a good bike shop in your area. Bikes from big box stores, like Walmart and Target, are mass-market bikes that may be less expensive, but the quality isn’t as good and they’re typically seven to eight pounds heaver. They also come in only one size, so you’re not likely to get a great fit. Before you buy any bike, be sure you take it for a test ride first to ensure that the seat and fit of the bike is comfortable, the brakes and shifters are easy to use, the gears can go low enough for climbing hills, and the frame and suspension adequately smooth the bumps. Recumbent Bikes If the comfort bikes don’t meet your needs, another popular style among older riders is a recumbent bike. These are the low-to-the-ground, stretched-out frame bikes with LaZ-Boy style seats that allow you to recline with your legs positioned in front of you. Recumbent bikes are very comfy, easy on the back, arms and shoulders, and aerodynamic which make them ideal for long rides. The disadvantages, because they are low-to-theground, they can be harder to balance and maneuver, and are more difficult for other vehicles to see. If you worry about falling or want more stability when you ride consider a three-wheel recumbent trike. See SunSeeker. bike and for a nice variety, but be aware that recumbent bikes are more expensive, typically ranging between $1,000 and $2,500. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

he news is swirling all around us about health risks increased by our lifestyle of processed foods, inactivity and low fruit and vegetable consumption. Those risks include chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and weight gain. A diagnosis of any one of these can often leave individuals overwhelmed and feeling alone.

WARM FAREWELL | from page 1 “Ms. Hanley is a respected and valued member of our learning community and will be greatly missed by all,” Doyle said. A familiar face in the Huckleberry School, Linda LaGreca was often the first one that students saw when they walked through the doors. LaGreca was secretary for 31 years. Doyle praised her for being a “constant, reliable and dependable presence in the front office.” “[LaGreca’s] attention to detail, organizational skills, reliability and dependability will be missed by all,” Doyle said, also calling her a “tremendous resource and support.” School Committee Member Rich Sjoberg personally thanked Linda for her hand in helping organize logistics of the

school’s PTO. “It’s always been a pleasure to walk into the office and you always knew the answer,” he said. Also retiring this year is longtime Huckleberry Hill School Psychologist Kathy Kenney, who has served the school for 35 years. “She has helped our youngest students successfully navigate difficult situations to feel more comfortable and confident as a learner … students knew that they could go to her in a time of need,” Doyle said. “It’s truly been a pleasure,” an almost tearful Kenney said. She thanked the students and her peers for their support. School Committee members also thanked former LHS Latin Teacher Margaret McGill for her service to the schools. Mc-

Going forward, she asked students to remember a few simple rules: to love, to find peace and to find joy. She also asked that students demonstrate “pristine speech and actions,” which would serve them even in their most difficult times, and be “the very for delivering the invocation and benediction.

Gill could not be present that night. She had served as a Latin teacher since 1991. Doyle told of how over her first three years she helped grow the Latin program into a full-time position. He also praised McGill for her kindness and care to the more than 1,000 students who walked through her doors. “Ms. McGill has worked tirelessly to provide her students a well-rounded, challenging and accessible education in Latin [she will] go the extra mile for any one of them,” he said. School Committee Co-Chairperson Dorothy Presser, at the close of the presentations, noted the respect and appreciation the students have for their educators – including those newly retired. “They really, really do appreciate the work that you do,” Presser said.

LCWD Outside Water Use Restriction In Effect Lynnfield


he Lynnfield Center Water District has a year round watering restriction. By order of the Mass Department of Environmental Protection, sprinkler use is permitted 5:00PM to 9:00PM on even numbered calendar days only. A hand held hose may be used at any time. Violations of the restrictions are subject to a fine or fines. Excess watering out-

side of this time period causes low pressure affecting both Fire Protection and everyday use. Further restrictions may be imposed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and will be posted on the District web site www.LCWD.US and published in local newspapers. Customers are cautioned

that excessive outside water use will result in a very high water bill due to the tiered water rates that are intended to promote conservation per Mass DEP. Customers may contact the Lynnfield Center Water District Office at 1.781.334.3901 or refer to the District’s web site www.LCWD.US for more information.
