Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

Fund Raiser For Local Soccer Players Trip To Italy

Dear Friends/Family,

As most of you know, our youngest son Chris Junior, “CJ” is somewhat of a soccer fanatic and last year, as a freshman, he earned a starting position on the Tantasqua Regional High School varsity soccer team. This year he has been given an opportunity to practice with AC Milan in Italy for the last 2 weeks of June.

In order to raise the funds for his trip we will be hosting an event on April 24th, at TJ O’Brien’s at 407 Main Street, Sturbridge MA from 1- 5pm.

Pasta, meatballs, chicken wings, etc will be offered and OF COURSE there will be a cash bar.

Tickets are $20 EACH and can be purchased upon request at or 617-201-6801 and available until the 20th.

If you can't make the event but would like to send a donation, checks can be made out to "Cj" Mattioli and sent to Barbara Mattioli's attention at 47 Breakneck Rd., Sturbridge MA 01566.

Donations beyond the unrelated cost of the above will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association in recognition of Doris Mattioli.

Hope to see you on the 24th.
