How would you like a chance to win up to $1000 or $250 and support local charities at the same time? Buy one of the Norfolk Lion's charity golf balls for $10.00. This year up to 250 numbered golf balls will be sold and two prizes will be awarded.
Between 2:30 and 3:00 on Norfolk Community Day, all numbered balls will be placed in a container and dropped 40 feet from the top of the Norfolk Fire Dept ladder truck.

Leopold is the visionary conservationist whose essays ``A Sand County Almanac'' lay out his philosophy of how to live responsibly on the land. The film explores Aldo Leopold's life in the early part of the twentieth century and the many ways his concept of a ``land ethic'' continues to be applied all over the world today.
Doug Williams, director of Mass Audubon's Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, commented ``I first read ``A Sand County Almanac'' when I was in my teens. At the time my interests led me to the woods, the lakes and streams near where I grew up. I was happiest when I was alone with the trees, the birds and fish without the distractions of friends and family.
``Through reading ``A Sand County Almanac'' I was reminded that people are a part of nature, that we are at once influenced by and conversely influence the natural world,'' Williams said. ``I reread ``A Sand County Almanac'' on a regular basis and am recharged, my spirit renewed, my love for the woods strengthened and my devotion to conserving the natural world for future generations reinvigorated. All life is miraculous and few authors convey that sentiment better than Aldo Leopold.''
Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the US Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature. Although probably best known as the author of A Sand County Almanac, Leopold is also renowned for his work as an educator, philosopher, forester, ecologist, and wilderness advocate.
Green Fire illustrates Leopold's continuing influence by exploring current projects that connect people and land at the local level. Viewers will meet urban children in Chicago learning about local foods and ecological restoration. They'll learn about ranchers in Arizona and New Mexico who maintain healthy landscapes by working on their own properties and with their neighbors, in cooperative community conservation efforts. They'll meet wildlife biologists who are bringing back threatened and endangered species, from cranes to Mexican wolves, to the landscapes where they once thrived. The Green Fire film portrays how Leopold's vision of a community that cares about both people and land--his call for a land ethic--ties all of these modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future.
Learn more about Aldo Leopold at www.aldoleopold.org. About the sponsors: Metacomet Land Trust, Inc. is a regional land conservation organization which serves 14 towns in Norfolk and Worcester counties. Metacomet preserves land for wildlife, passive recreation and works with partners to provide environmental education. www.MetacometLandTrust.org Mass Audubon's Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary sponsors both youth and adult environmental education and... Known for its extensive boardwalk system that goes through forest, fields, and wetlands, Stony Brook offers up-close views of wildlife above and under the water. Located adjacent to the 140-acre Bristol Blake State Reservation and cooperatively managed with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), this former 18th-century mill site now supports native wildlife. Mass Audubon is the largest member-supported environmental organization in the Bay State.

On Saturday, March 25, more than 200 guests attended the Norfolk Community Gala at Lakeview Pavilion in Foxboro. The annual fundraiser resulted in $24,000 which will support local charitable organizations in Norfolk, Massachusetts.
At the event, Norfolk's Lisa Collentro was honored as Norfolk's 2017 Person the Year. Ms. Collentro has dedicated much of her time to Norfolk Baseball as a coach and board member and has assisted in organizing opening and closing day activities. She recently helped the local Boy Scout troop earn the Emergency Procedure merit badge, and helped with the ``Bubba Strong Open Golf Tournament,'' to support two members of the King Philip family being treated at the Mass General Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit. She also lends her support as a chaperone for school field trips and coordinates volunteer opportunities.
The Norfolk Community Gala was organized by the Norfolk Community League (NCL) which enhances the quality of life for Norfolk residents, to increase involvement in activities that better our community, and to strengthen community spirit.

On Saturday, March 4, 2017, the Norfolk Lions Club held their 10th Annual Chili-Fest at the Norfolk Grange. Each year, local area restaurants compete for Best Chili with community attendees tasting and judging chili prepared by each establishment.

Save the date! June may seem like a long way off, but the Norfolk Lions Community Day team is already planning this annual event.
This year's event resurrects the original ``Old Tyme Day'' theme from years past when times were a little slower and more affordable. Community Day 2017 will take place on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 11:00 until 4:00. Once again the Holmes Family has graciously agreed to host the event at their property at 22 Myrtle Street, Norfolk.
This will be the Lions' 25th year bringing a day of family fun and entertainment so a Happy 25th Anniversary theme will also be a part of the day. The Lions' goal is to provide a country fair type environment including music, dancing, games, petting animals, hayrides, train rides, pie eating contest, foam for kids to play in, food and historical displays. This is an event for the entire Norfolk Community to come out, celebrate and get to know neighbors.
The Lions welcome your participation and invite any Norfolk business, organization, neighborhood or group to participate in Community Day. Groups and organizations (including corporations) can take part in a number of ways, whether by setting up a booth or tent, sponsoring an activity or entertainment, or simply by becoming a sponsor.
If you would like a booth, we do ask that you provide something in return. For example, if your company wants to have a booth, then you should have something to offer that will add to the fun such as a game or activity, or provide financial support that will be used towards other expenses. You can also sponsor an event or entertainment. We are flexible; just tell us what you have in mind.
Help make Norfolk Community Day 2017 one of the best and join the fun. You may contact the Norfolk Lions Club at email@example.com or call Ed M. @ 508-528-9302 or Patti M. @ 508-298-8695.

I think a great addition to NorfolkNet website would be a place for residents to post items they are looking to give away and post items needed - similar to Free Cycle. We all have things that are just taking up space in our garages and closets. Better they be used and appreciated than end up in a landfill one day. It's a win/win. (hint to Webmaster).
He mistakenly placed an armful of burlap in the bin for cardboard and was yelled at by the attendants. They fished it out and told us to put it in bulk, which we did. One guy then charged us $5.00. Is there a listing anywhere of what things cost to dispose of. Doesn't make sense to pay $5.00 for a handful of burlap. It felt like a punitive surcharge against an elder man. He told us it wouldn't have been as much if we had not put it in the wrong bin in the first place. That was an honest mistake on my husbands part and I think it's out of line to penalize - have not a sign warning us of such a policy.
Has anyone else had issues with arbitrary fees at out transfer station?

Cianciolo insists that the program is far from being just another lecture course and is designed "to take the stuffiness out of lifelong learning courses by combining the stimulation of a college workshop with the fun of a backyard barbecue."
