We are all excited to have Gabe Millins as our DRE! She is looking forward to her start date of August 1. The DRE position has been changed to a 30-hour a week/11-month position. Once she starts, we will notify you all of her new professional email address. Until then, she's enjoying her summer vacation!


We send healing thoughts to Ed Mosher, who is recovering from recent surgery at home. He is eagerly anticipating a trip to his beloved Maine!

Don’t miss this year’s family day on the North River or the pizza party in the evening! Join us on the North River on Sunday, July 22 , followed by a late afternoon pizza party at the home of Peter and Roberta Fairbanks. Both parts of the day are for all ages. Here are the specifics:

9-9:30 am: Head to the Bridge Street/Union Street canoe launch on the Marshfield side of the river. Bring your canoe or kayak and a picnic lunch. (Don’t forget paddles, life preservers, and sunblock!) Leave the canoe launch and paddle upstream on your own schedule to the picnic and swimming beach at the Couch property in Marshfield. We’ll be going WITH the tide- much easier and more fun!!
11:30 am - 12:30 pm (estimated): Swim and picnic at the Couch property. We’ll leave when the tide turns.

12:30 or 1:00 pm: Start back WITH the tide.  Optional: Stop at the home of Ralph and Betsy Gordon (short break, beautiful location, bathroom available) . R eturn to the canoe launch and your car. Take a few hours to relax at home, then come to the Pizza Party.

5:00 pm: Family pizza party at the home of Peter and Roberta Fairbanks (1243 Union Street, Marshfield). Bring $5.00 per person for pizza and an appetizer or dessert to share. There is a lovely swimming pool (a favorite of the children) and a gorgeous view of the river. 

If you need to borrow a canoe or kayak, we may be able to find one for you. And if you don’t feel comfortable in a canoe or kayak, we will try to find space for you on a pontoon boat. Pontoon seats are limited, though, so call Marcia or Scott Babcock (781-659-2956) soon to reserve your space. If you have a canoe or kayak to loan or plan to bring a pontoon or motor boat that can take extra people, please let Marcia or Scott know, too.
