HERE GOES THE JUDGE: The former First Justice of the Stoughton District Court - and former Stoughton Town Manager - , has already outgrown the location of his new law practice, and is moving to larger, more plush, surroundings.

Crimmins, managing member of Ab Initio Elder Law Solutions, LLC., can now be found at 247 Washington Street, in office space at Albert's Plaza on Route 138. His practice was previously located at Cabot Place off Page St.

The practice, according to its website, "provides a variety of legal and supplemental support services for elderly or disabled clients, their families and guardians."


KOSHER BBQ: On Sunday, August 12, more than 100 people gathered for a community barbecue at in Stoughton. This mid-summer get together was to unite the greater Jewish community at a social event and it also served as an open house for the Shaloh House Hebrew School and the Shaloh House Preschool & Kindergarten.

Hebrew School, which is held on Sundays, begins September 9. It is now enrolling new students for the coming school year.

The Shaloh House Preschool & Kindergarten has a new infant's room - the only program like it in any Jewish educational institution in the Greater Metro South Area.

Many new families used the open house as an opportunity to visit the state-of-the-art classrooms and chat with staff members and other current families. 

The infant's class has created much excitement and attracted a lot of interest in the community.

Children enjoyed the moon bounce and other recreational equipment at the Shaloh House playground (take a look at pictures from the BBQ/open house in the media gallery).

For more information on the Preschool or the Hebrew School or any other educational and outreach program at Shaloh House, please visit www.shalohhouse.com or call 781 344-6334.
