Thanks to the efforts of Joe DeVito, Janet Clough, Evelyn Callanan and Charlie Wade, the Stoughton Historical Society will have a float in the Parade on Wednesday, the 4th at 2:30 pm. Malyke Ross, Benjamin Mallock, Daniel Budel, Brendan Gallagher, Jack Goldberg, David Griffin, David and Brenda Lambert, and Josh and Mikayla Williams will be on the float wearing various military uniforms from the Stoughton Historical Society collection. Richard Jasmine is driving the truck. While you are there, you can check out the sections of trolley tracks, which have been mounted in front of our sign, thanks to the work of Joe Mokrisky Dennis Walsh, Carlene Walsh and Maria Simas. These tracks were found several years ago when parts of the Square were being repaved. We will have a small exhibit with pictures and documents, put together by Dick Fitzpatrick, describing Stoughton when it was a trolley town.

Does anyone know where I can contact the Stoughton Community Events Committee? Although it was wonderful to see so many Stoughton families at the parade today, there were a number of issues that compromised the safety of the people marching and participating in the parade that I feel could be addressed by better planning on the part of the town.
