Wow, 500 years. That’s how long Lagoa in the Azores, Portugal, has been around. That’s a loooong time. It’s Fairhaven’s sister city, and is looks like a really cool place to visit.
See page 12 for info on the celebration held this week. The display will be up in town hall until 8/8, so be sure to get there and take a peek.
Acushnet’s K9 has a name. Sunny is already making the rounds, getting to know her new job. She’s been to the school department, training, and orientation at the police department. She’s a cute little bugger. Go to page 16 and see for yourself.
We have a couple of letters for you this week (see page 17). One is from candidate for state representative Rick Trapilo, about his signs getting vandalized. Really, people? Do we really have to do that? What the hell. Grow up.
Oh…sports news this week. The Fairhaven Acushnet Youth Baseball All Star team (12/U) is going to the nationals. How cool is THAT? See page 3 for how you can help them get to the tournament. It’s in Missouri and it’s going to cost a fortune to fly there, get hotel rooms, etc. Our two little towns are competing on the big stage. What fun!
Let’s show some hometown love for the young’uns.
