NEWS & HAPPENINGS


News Submission Policy
The Wanderer gladly accepts any and all news and press release items from local non-profit organizations for publication on a weekly basis. The deadline for submission of news items is Monday at 12:00 noon for publication in that week's edition. Due to the increasing number of submissions, however, publication of press material is never guaranteed. The Wanderer will make every effort to publish timely news items and announcements as the subject warrants and as often as spacing allows. All press material must be submitted in writing via fax (508-758-4845), e-mail (news@wanderer.com), or mail (The Wanderer, P.O. Box 102, Mattapoisett, MA 02739), and must be typed or word-processed. We cannot accept any handwritten material or news items via telephone, no matter how brief.
Photographs of area events and newsmakers are also accepted and encouraged. The Wanderer accepts well-lit and clearly-defined color or black and white photographs for publication, provided that they include a brief summary of the event or subject. Due to processing and/or cropping requirements, we cannot return photographs. Please make sure you retain your negatives or have a copy made before submitting photographs for publication. Like news items, the deadline for photos is Monday at 12:00 pm, and the publication of photographs is also subject to spacing constraints and therefore cannot be guaranteed.
All submitted copy is subject to alterations and/or condensation as space allows at the editor's discretion. All submissions become the property of The Wanderer and are assumed to be submitted for the purpose of publication. Submissions cannot be returned; therefore, please make sure to retain copies and/or negatives before submitting anything for consideration.
Ideas for features, breaking news tips, and other suggestions for the news department are welcome. Please call the News Editor with news tips and ideas at 508-758-9055. If it is after hours, please leave a message or email news@wanderer.com.

The Wanderer will gladly accept any and all correspondence relating to timely and pertinent issues in the great Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester area, provided they include the author's name, address and phone number for verification. We cannot publish anonymous, unsigned or unconfirmed submissions. The Wanderer reserves the right to edit, condense and otherwise alter submissions for purposes of clarity and/or spacing considerations. The Wanderer may choose to not run letters that thank businesses, and The Wanderer has the right to edit letters to omit business names. The Wanderer also reserves the right to deny publication of any submitted correspondence.

To the Editor:
It was a beautiful day to stroll the village of Marion on Sunday. Thanks to the Marion Business Community, there were many festive activities for families of all ages.
Every village business put on something special for the crowds to enjoy. Music was plentiful as was the food. It made for a very happy Holiday scene. Thanks to Paula and Eric Strand and all their merry elves who made the day such a success.
I would also like to urge anyone who came to consider supporting their local business. As a small shop owner (How On Earth in Mattapoisett), I know first-hand how difficult it is to compete with big stores. Shopping locally keeps money in the community. We hire local employees, support local charities and pay local taxes. Marion Village has a lot to offer: food, toys, books, groceries, clothes, gifts and now a new lunch spot and so much more. So please consider "Shop Local" when you next go out.
If anyone would like to help with the cost of the Stroll, please send a check to MBCA, Box 434, Marion 02738

"The need is great," said Denise Bertrand, a Rochester resident who volunteers at the center filling orders that come in from various distribution partners. "Often when we don't have what is needed, one of us will take money out of our own pockets to purchase the item to fulfill the order."
New packages of children's socks and underwear of any size as well as cash donations are needed most at this time.
Visit www.giftstogive.org for more information about their services or how to get involved.

Sean Murphy Makes WPI All-Star
Sean Murphy was one of eight members of the WPI Football team to earn a spot on the 24th annual Steve "Merc" Morris All-Star Team as selected by the eight sports information directors of Worcester County.
The team is named in memory of Steve "Merc" Morris, the longtime Assistant Director of Athletics for Media Relations and Assumption Hall of Famer. Morris was a 1972 graduate of Assumption and was a member of the athletics staff for 39 years before he passed away in January of 2011.
The quartet of senior Nate Martel, junior Sean Murphy and sophomores Brian Murtagh and Brandon Eccher distinguished themselves by earning first team honors.
Also receiving recognition with second team accolades were seniors Zach Arnold, Jack Downey and juniors Vinny Tavernelli and Eric Lacroix.
Murphy picked up first team All-Worcester Area honors for a second straight season. The junior recorded team-highs with four interceptions and six pass breakups despite seeing a limited amount of balls thrown to his side of the field. Murphy returned interceptions for touchdowns against Curry and Union and also returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown against Worcester State. The pick-six at Curry was named a GEICO Best of College Football Play of the Year finalist and aired twice on CBS late last month.
WPI, who concluded the 2014 season with its first-ever victory over Springfield, will kick off the 2015 campaign at home Labor Day weekend against New England Football Conference champion, and NCAA Division III Football Championship second round participant, MIT.

Marion Town House Committee to Seek Architect
Next month, the Marion Town House Building Committee with the Marion Board of Selectmen will issue a Request for Qualifications to hire an architectural team to prepare a feasibility study to renovate and modernize the historic Marion Town House. The landmark building was constructed in 1876-1890 for Tabor Academy as a gift from the town's most important benefactor, Elizabeth Taber. In 1937, it was given to the Town of Marion as part of a land swap with the growing school. The 138-year old building is now in need of extensive repairs and updating to meet current building codes and modern functionality.
The RFQ asks for three Town House renovation options to be studied as well as a fourth option, which would incorporate master planning for the Town House, the Elizabeth Taber Library and a senior center. The resulting feasibility study will result in conceptual plans of all four options and will inform townspeople as to what renovation plan is most feasible and what the cost will be. The four options specifically exclude demolition of the 1876 building
The Town House Building committee members are Paul Dawson (Town Manager), Lynn Crocker, Priscilla Ditchfield, Jon Henry (selectman), Wayne Matteson, Bob Raymond (chairman), Bill Saltonstall, Meg Steinberg and Shaun Cormier (Facilities Manager and Owners Project Manager).
The ultimate goal of the study is to provide modern functional town facilities in beautifully renovated buildings compatible with the special character of the town. The Committee will hold a public hearing next summer at the completion of the study to present the results.

K of C Teen Dances
All of the Teen Dances held at the Knights Hall are sponsored and run by the Knights of Columbus, Damien Council. As a preventive measure - not because of any problems - a uniformed police detail officer is hired for each dance. Several Knights and Ladies Auxiliary members chaperone each dance. Once a teen has entered the Knights Hall, they are not allowed to leave the building unless being picked up by a parent or guardian. As always, Disc Jockey Jason Mello provides the music. Mr. Mello is a member of the Knights of Columbus.
The Knights want 6th, 7th and 8th graders to have a fun and safe environment to socialize and dance on scheduled Friday evenings. We invite any parent who wants to see what the dances are all about to visit a dance. Please stop in when you drop your child off, introduce yourself to the chaperones, and take a look around so you know how your child will be spending the evening.
All proceeds from these dances support our local Knights of Columbus charities and expenses in maintaining the Knights Hall. If you have any questions about our Teen Dances, do not hesitate to call Jim Alferes at 508-863-3496 or stop by the beginning of the next dance!
Teen Dances are scheduled for the following dates from 7:00 - 10:00 pm:

Decorated boxes to receive the donations are in the children's department and upstairs near the adult circulation desk. Any size new pajamas for boys or girls are welcome. A clothesline is being hung in the mezzanine to show off some of the fun PJs and to remind patrons of "the pajama drive."
"We already have a few donations and we're just getting started. The entire staff is excited about this project to benefit women and children served by The Women's Center. What better gift for a child this winter than a cozy pair of PJs and a new book?" stated Library Director Susan Pizzolato.

Best Seat in the House? Every Seat!
The Music Hall Advisory Committee is pleased to announce two very significant donations - an audio system donated by an anonymous donor, as well as 150 comfortable, new chairs from a dual donation by an anonymous donor and the Sippican Historical Society. The Committee is deeply grateful for these wonderful contributions that will greatly enhance the comfort and enjoyment of audiences for the many civic and cultural activities held at the Music Hall.
For information on various programs held at the Music Hall by organizations such as the Sippican Historical Society, Elizabeth Taber Library and Marion Council on Aging, as well as other local venues, you can now consult the Town of Marion's Events calendar at http://www.marionma.gov/Pages/MarionMA_Eventscal/.
Increased use of the Music Hall has led to more awareness of the maintenance issues it faces, and the Committee is very pleased to be working actively with the town's new Facilities Manager, Shaun Cormier, to ensure the long-term 'health' of this historic building. We look forward to honoring the vision of Elizabeth Taber when she built the Music Hall in 1891, as well as the generosity of another benefactress whose large donation in 1995 provided funds for a major renovation to the building as well as an endowment.
The focus now is on stabilizing the Hall's foundation, increasing handicap access, upgrading the kitchen, replacing the furnace, redoing the interior painting and floors, as well as furnishing the Reading Room. Excellent assistance from many local volunteers has proved invaluable, and the Committee welcomes any and all suggestions as the project moves forward.
Anyone who wishes to be involved in the Music Hall's improvement initiative is encouraged to contact Phyllis Washburn at myswan@verizon.net.
