Hi people -- we recently re-discovered mysouthborough.com. Any Westboronians familiar with that website? What do you think about its format?

We're looking to re-do this here Westborough.com, and would love some feedback: What's useful to you? What do people want from a local site?

If you've got examples of other good sites, please share 'em!

Very many thanks, and best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and New Year's to you and your loved ones.

Christmas Tree 2014 Sale Update - let's help the Civic Club!

An update from Westborough Civic Club:

As predicted, the annual Civic Club sale of Christmas trees has all the signs of again being the success that it has grown into over the past 39 years.

We're already sold out of all the roping and over 500 wreaths that were delivered just after Thanksgiving!

There are only about 50 trees left for sale, before the lot closes for another year.

Vice-president Steve Hart is urging those families in need of a tree to try and get there early Saturday with,

"No guarantee that, by the time the Patriots play on Sunday, there will be anything left at all.

"We are again both pleased and amazed with the response we have had to this fund-raising event.

"With over 1,400 trees already sold, it’s a real joy to be able to go into the New Year in the knowledge that the Club can again support many great causes here in town".

The lot remains open 9.00 am - 9.00 pm at the weekend and 1.00 - 9.00 pm. weekdays....... or until the last tree is sold.

###

Already have a tree?  How about considering a tree as an early gift for someone who's not as fortunate?  Let's help out both our neighbors AND the Westborough Civic Club!

SENATOR ELDRIDGE, REPRESENTATIVE HOGAN HOST STATE HOUSE BRIEFING ON BAYPATH ELDER SERVICES NEW WEBSITE

CAREGIVINGMETROWEST.ORG


New website provides wealth of resources and information for seniors and caregivers in 25 Metrowest communities 


BOSTON-- (Tuesday, November 18th) Senator Eldridge (D-Acton) and Representative Kate Hogan (D-Stow)  hosted a briefing at the State House on the newCaregivingMetroWest.org website launched by BayPath Elder Services, Inc. which serves as an online resource for caregivers of elders in 25 Metrowest towns in Massachusetts.


“This newly launched website will be a useful resource to connect caregivers with services and a support network in a much more effective way in the Metrowest region,” said Senator Jamie Eldridge. “I applaud BayPath Elder Services, Inc. for the work they do to increase the quality of life for individuals who care for aging loved ones with chronic conditions, illness and other disabilities.”


“One of the most difficult obstacles to overcome when choosing support services is knowing what services there are to choose from, and whether or not your loved one qualifies for them,” said Representative Kate Hogan. “BayPath Elder Services’ new site is designed to relay specific, customized information about local resources for individuals and caregivers at their own pace and on their own time.”


New features of CaregivingMetroWest.org include a town resource map, government agencies and program information, caregiver concierge to guide users to the information best suited to meet their needs, discussion forum, new blog called Caregiving Chronicles, glossary for medical terminology, helpline, news from around the web, home and health safety resources.


For more information about services available to caregivers in the MetroWest region, visit CaregivingMetroWest.org for details.
