This Week


Our guest speaker was Joe Ferreira who is running for Governor’s Council.  It was great to meet Joe whose qualifications to run for Governor Council were quite impressive.  He was a Police Chief for 30 years and just retired in June 2014.  An attorney for over 20 years, Special Assistant District Attorney  and former Superior Court Law Clerk.  He graduated from Bryant University, Foxboro Municipal Police Academy and UMASS Law.  He also has volunteered for several organizations throughout his career.  For additional information of who Joe really is please go to www.Joeforgovco.com.     


Alan Freitas - the Bridgehouse playground Community Service we are still waiting for the go ahead from them to start the assembly.  Also, we will be having a Bridgehouse event on August 23rd at Alan & Joy’s home.  It should be lots of fun for all to do boat rides, games, food etc. I did miss the event last year but all that attended said that it was a wonderful time and the pictures did show that.


Mark Treadup - a Community Service for the New Bedford High School they are looking for volunteers to help paint some areas in the High School from August 22-24.  I will forward additional information for anyone interested in volunteering.
