Phone book update: the new phone book is being printed and should be ready soon. At this time we are looking to find a few high school kids that would be willing to help us deliver these books to every home here in the park. Anybody have grand children that would be willing to help out with this task? It would be a great opportunity for high school kids to do some community service. It would look great an college applications. Call Iris Perkoski @ 781-293-1577 until January 24th, after that date please call Nancy Froio. ..............Thanks
