Selectmen laud Northborough's Homecoming Celebration

By Genevieve Jinson, Community Reporter

northboroNorthborough – Each year the Northborough High School Alumni Association holds a Homecoming Celebration. At the Board of Selectmen's Sept. 24 meeting, Richard Sargent, a representative from the association, made a short presentation to the board previewing this year's event, the 140th Homecoming Celebration.

This year's Homecoming Day will be held Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Northborough Senior Center. Registration will begin at noon at the Senior Center, followed by the Homecoming celebration at 1:30 p.m., and end with a cocktail hour at Giuseppe's Grille, 35 Solomon Pond Road. The annual event draws between 100 to 125 people from around the country. Last year, the oldest attendee was a graduate of the Class of 1940.

Sargent noted that the organization is the oldest of its type in the country.

Selectman Dawn Rand said she attends the celebration every year.

“I'sl be there this year,” she added.

In other business, the board unanimously approved a pole petition from Verizon New England and Massachusetts Electric Companies to place two new poles on Howard Street. No cables will be used on the poles, only drop wires. The poles will be placed on town property, not private property.

Dan Nason is the Department of Public Works director.

“I'se actually gone out there with my staff and reviewed the locations, and we'se fine with them,” he told the board.
