Dudley Charlton Lacrosse Playoffs Lacrosse Continues to Strengthen Our Community A program in its infancy but making a name for itself in short order.  The Dudley Charlton league began 4 years ago with the idea to develop players at a young age so they can continue and excel in high school and college.   A sport non-existent when I was this age but now Massachusetts has the largest National program based on the number of teams.  I did not know much about the sport but decided to participate at the coaching level this year and I have no regrets. Under the tutelage of Craig Pietz and Sue Dacey I have learned a high degree of respect for this dynamic sport. As of this writing the playoff picture has come together for most of the teams.  Shepherd Hill has already played several games while...

Charlton MA Real Estate Snapshot for 2011   How's the Market in Charlton, Massachusetts?  Well, as with many towns in central Massachusetts, Charlton saw a weakened real estate market for 2011.  The economy, plus several unusual storms in the area, had a large role to play. The two charts below tell the story.  The number of homes sold in Charlton in 2011 was the lowest yet since the peak in 2005, and the average single family home price was back to 2002 prices.     Data Source:  MLS PIN Data Source: MLS PIN   Current Market There are currently 64 single family homes on the market in Charlton, MA.  Of those, six homes have accepted offers but are continuing to market for back-up offers.  There are also eight single family homes under contract.  Only three homes have been sold in 2012 so...

365 Things to do in Worcester County - read the review for "Hotel on Marvin Gardens" in Charlton.  Every actor I know looks forward to reading the review of the play.  And I am no exception.  I relish in seeing my name in the paper with, hopefully good comments attached.  After all, the effort that goes into a production is amazing:  There are months of rehearsals, memorization of lines, development of character, the hunt for props and costumes, tedious Tech week and the opening night Jitters.  When you survive the list of preparation, the proverbial curtains are drawn and the play is out, the project is done.  One can not recreate it if the audience or the critic does not like the final result.  So, there is nothing left to do, but hold your breath and read the review, hoping that the ...

365 things to do in Worcester County - Rehearse Hotel on Marvin Gardens in Charlton.  I have been doing this for many weeks now and will continue to do for a few more.  I am participating in a play called Hotel on Marvin Gardens.  It is written by Nagle Jackson and takes place on an island of Connecticut coast.  The story revolves an annual game of Monopoly where a foursome get together to play.  The game of monopoly reflects the greed in society and the "traditional goal" of accumulating wealth.   The group is interrupted by a young woman from "the other side of the tracks".  This interaction brings to light certain long unspoken issues, add a long night of drinking, a storm, and all mayhem breaks loose.   I have enjoyed my participation in the rehearsals not only because I love theate...
