ABOUT TOWN: "Reliable" Business Moving to Stoughton (And Feaster Has Farewell Lunch)
Welcome to "About Town with Mark Snyder," a column that will keep you up to the minute with what's what, who's who and what's going on around town. If you see or hear something we could use here, let us know by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
MOVIN' ON UP: Reliable Window & Siding is moving to Stoughton at a space on Tosca Dr. The business, which has been in Canton since 2000, under the leadership of the late Albie DiStefano.
Owner Carol DiStefano tells About Town that the rent will be $1,100 cheaper for the same amount of space and the office is much nicer. She was enthusiastic about her new landlord, too.
"We are renting from Eric Hoffmann. His family is from Stoughton and he currently lives in New York. We are really looking forward to the move to 194 Tosca Dr in Stoughton on January 3, 2013," she said.
As someone who used Reliable for all his new windows several years ago, I want to wish Carol a lot of luck in her new location!
FEASTER GETS A FAREWELL LUNCH: No doubt that Department Heads for the Town of Stoughton appreciated the job done by Interim Town Manager Joseph D. Feaster, Jr.
On Friday, December 14, 2012, Department Heads and some staff members of the Town of Stoughton took Feaster to lunch at The Chateau in Stoughton as a thank you for a job well done.
They celebrated with him, as he prepares to make way for new Town Manager Michael Hartman. Feaster started serving as Interim Town Manager in April 2012. His contract expires Dec. 28.
A fun (and good food) was had by all.
Take a look at pictures from the lunch in the media gallery.
