The NGES PTG did not receive this grant because we did not apply for it. Unfortunately, we did not have the bandwidth early in the year to apply for the Staples grant. We have applied for many grants this year and have received well over 1000 dollars in grant money. If you have experience applying for grants or would like to help us out on the PTG to raise money for our schools, we would love to have you! Please visit http://www.nges-ptg.org/ or contact any of board members.
We have two PTGS one who helps out North Grafton schools from Prek-6 and one who helps out South Grafton Schools and the PTGs do work closely together. Right now we are busy planning the annual basketball game.
This grant is wonderful news to South Grafton and I'd like to congratulate them. If you would like to talk further, please do not hesitate to contact me - at email@example.com. Thank you for your thoughts.

Thank you Rich for joining us! Thank you to all of the community readers who participated and thank you to our Enrichment Coordinator, Katheleen Schaker, for her hard work organizing the event! Thank you also to Dunkin Donuts for their food donations. It's always such a great event and we appreciate all who help make it possible!

I appreciate this reminder. I always feel like I'm taking my life in my hands on Willard street especially. We all need to be reminded to slow down and stay on our side the road. That is a narrow road with lots of twists and turns so a driver often can't see what is coming!
(Also, on Old Westboro Rd. - the speed limit is 30 for a reason!) View Comment
I agree with Elizabeth. The farmer's market is one of my favorite things about summer in Grafton and I'm looking forward to attending on Thursdays this year. I appreciate all the work that goes into this and I think it is a wonderful thing! See you on the Common.

I'd also like to see more places carrying the trashbags. When this program first started I thought we were going to be able to get them everywhere. Now I can only seem to find them in Stop and Shop and Koopmans (and yes, I'm sure there are more places, but not as many as we were told.) I know this was suppose to help Grafton businesses, but I don't always shop at that side of town and would love to see them in Westborough (who carry Northboro trashbags) or at least in some more places.
Also, I'd prefer the bags not to split down the sides.
