THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Morris Lake was 22 inches below the top of the spillway on 5.5.16.

Great news – the new bakery has opened on Spring Street! Amore Bakery & Café, 183 Spring Street. Stop in and say hi to Joanne and Sal Martino and congratulate them on their exciting new endeavor. That’s Amore!

Lots of great conversations and discussions at the annual managers/administrators conference in Spring Lake this week.

Have a great weekend!

Yours for a Better Newton,
