Friends and family members paid tribute to Mattapoisett’s own Maurice “Mudgie” Tavares last week in a formal ceremony to dedicate and name the new Center School Playground in his honor. Mudgie has been a longtime supporter and friend of the children of Mattapoisett — as both a staff member at Center School and the founder of the long-running and ever-popular Mattapoisett Track Club — so the playground dedication was an ideal honor. Former Mattapoisett students were on hand to cite Mudgie’s positive influence and affect on their lives. (Photo by Kenneth J. Souza).
