Two From Millis Selected In National Hockey League Draft

Boldy, Moynihan Get The Nod


Staff Sports Writer

When Matthew Boldy was

chosen 12th by the Minnesota

Wild at the National Hockey’s

annual draft in June, the town

of Millis suddenly was front and

The Voice of Your Community

center when the talented 6-foot-

2, 196-pound left wing became

a first-round selection.

As the draft progressed into

the sixth round, Millis again

was in the spotlight after Patrick

Moynihan was chosen by the

New Jersey Devils. Both skaters,

who live in Millis and are good

friends, have scholarships to

Division 1 colleges — Boldy at

Boston College and Moynihan

at Providence College. Boldy, a

left wing, and Moynihan, who

can play center or right wing,

will play for their respective colleges

this winter.

The town of Millis isn’t exactly

a hotbed for producing

pro hockey prospects. Its high

school, which once fielded a

varsity squad in the Tri Valley

League in the 1970s, had to

dissolve that program. Now, if

a Millis High athlete wants to

play ice hockey, the school offers

prospective players a chance to

compete in a co-op venture with

Hopedale High.

When Boldy and Moynihan

had their names called at the

draft, their hometown not only

was publicized, but also was

mentioned in a plethora of Internet

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at New Clyde Brown School

September 7th

September 3rd won’t be just

any first day of school for Millis

Kindergartners through fifth

graders. It will be the first time

students will attend the newlybuilt

Clyde F. Brown Elementary

School – and a return of the fifth

grade back to an elementary

school building in town. The

opening will be made official on

September 7th, at 10 a.m., with a

ribbon-cutting ceremony.

In fact, fifth graders will head

to the new building a little bit

early, to get to know the colorcoded

halls, front offices, gymnasium,

nurse’s areas, outdoor

classrooms, two playgrounds,

music room, STEAM (Science,

Technology, Engineering, Arts

and Math) room, art room, cafeteria

and multimedia common

spaces. Late this month, those

older students of the school will

orient younger students and their

families to the school in “Find

Your Ways Days,” set to take

place on August 27th and 28th.

With the parking lot getting

poured this month, parents and

friends should know that the traffic

patterns will be very different

from before. The Clyde Brown

School website will be posting

new traffic patterns. While traffic

is being ironed out, parents

should also make sure that if

they need to sign their kids up

for programs or activities, they

should head over to the Millis

High School/Middle School to

take care of those needs.

“The building is relatively

complete, but we’re working

on punch lists, fixing up all the

stuff that needs to get fixed,”

said Diane Jurmain, who has

been working on this project

with Wayne Klocko. Each step

of the way gets completed and

then inspected, said Jurmain, in

mid-July. “What we’re doing over

the summer is roadwork, playgrounds,

curbs, parking, and the

basketball court,” she said. Once

the demolition of the old Clyde

Brown School was complete,

which was scheduled at press

time to take place on July 29th.

“We are in a really tight time

frame to get all of this stuff done,

and while we’re at it, we’re still

fixing up the school, which is all

normal on any project,” said Jurmain.

At press time, teachers’

materials were all delivered, as

well as books from the library.

Staff still faced a lot of training

on new equipment, such as new

phones and computers, as well as

the layout and lots of new processes,

said Jurmain.

Jurmain has been keeping

public apprised of updates to

the school as well as has posted

interior and aerial photos on

Facebook under “Millis School

Project.” She is pleased the project

has been completed on time

and on budget.

“I’m thrilled, because it’s a

Medway Army Band Concert

On Friday, July 5th, the town

of Medway welcomed the 215th

Army Band of the Massachusetts

National Guard, under the command

of CW3 Stephen Martins,

with Lt. Gen. L. Scott Rice, Director,

Air National Guard, the

Pentagon, Arlington, Virginia, as

honored guest.

Rice, who was Adjutant General

under Gov. Deval Patrick

and later, Gov. Charlie Baker, was

pleased to be returning to Massachusetts

with his wife, Nancy.

Medway, he noted, reminded

him of the small Massachusetts

town in which the couple raised

their own two children.

“Our purpose here is to get the

Air Force out and about into the

community,” said Rice. “When

you combine the Air Force, the

Air National Guard and the Air

Force Reserves, when we’re together,

we touch every community

in the United States. And so,

in light of that, our purpose is

really to say thanks to everyone,

because we are nothing in the

military without our community,

and our community is not able to

function without us.”

The 40-member 215th Army

Band, which included Medway

in its two-week summer concert

tour, featured seven different ensembles,

even including a fife and

drum band and New Orleans

marching brass band in addition

to the traditional concert band.

In fact, Director Stephen Martins

noted that the band can play

up to 10 different genres.

This New Orleans-style brass band was just one of several ensembles

featured in a July 5th concert by the 215th Army Band.

Many veterans came out for the 215th Army Band concert, including

James Hayes, (l) and Col. Michael Matondi (r), two World War II veterans

who have both seen 99 years, shown with Lt. Gen. Rice (center). Photo

2nd Annual Medway Police Chase August 31, 2019

By J.D. O’Gara

Get ready to run (or walk!) in

the second annual Medway Police

Chase, a glow run, set to take

place at the very end of August,

from 7 – 11 p.m. on Saturday,

August 31st, 2019 at Medway

High School, 88 Summer Street,

Medway. The event will feature

a 5K road race and a kids’ fun

run, and it benefits the Medway

Police Association.

Medway Police Officer Lauren

Swarthout, who is organizing

the event with Sgt. Jason Brennan,

says that last year’s event,

which was put together very

quickly, had a surprising turnout

of about 200 people, twice the

number she had expected.

“We were shocked,” says

Swarthout. “It’s our biggest fundraiser,

and it’ll probably end up

being the only one we do. Last

year was the perfect day. It could

not have been better.”

to wear glow-in-the-dark attire

to make the event more festive.

T-shirts will also be available for

help various groups in town.

“We usually work with the

football team, the hockey team,

Scouts, MABA, the Lions Club,

and we also do a winter present

drive,” says the officer. The group

donates to two local scholarships

as well as to causes in Medway,”

she says.

As for the evening race,

Swarthout says last year’s worked

out well. “Most races are early

Saturday morning. I think a lot

of people are turned off by that.

Night was something different.

We wanted to do the glow thing

and didn’t want to do a basic 5K

that’s so common in Medway.”

Because it’s a run organized

by the police, she says, the event

has the resources it needs.

“We have 20 people to control

traffic, cruisers and the lighting,

and all the bike officers ride

around,” she says. “We can control

safety pretty well, and we just

all do it for free, and obviously,

everyone (all police officers)


There will be refreshments

available, says Swarthout, although

not all of the food trucks

had yet been confirmed at press

time. “Last year we had Pangea,

out of Medway,” she says, and

there will likely be an ice cream

truck and shaved ice. Local businesses

donated water for the runners

at last year’s event as well.

Swarthout says that now, with

more planning, the Medway

Police Association will be able

to give folks more notice, which

will be useful for residents of

Adams, Winthrop, Lovering and

Summer Streets. Some of those

residents, she says, would have

liked a bit more notice last year,

a request Swarthout hopes to accommodate

this year with media

notice and flyers.

Overall, though, the Police

Chase was well received.

“We got really good feedback

last year, and I hope people come

back and do it again, and I just

hope we can do it for many years.

It was such a good feeling, stressful

because it was so quick getting

it together, but seeing how much

everyone enjoyed it, I was on a

high for a few days. It was awesome.”

With Medway Schools beginning

the following week, the

Medway Police Chase might just

be a great way to end the summer.

Entrance fees for the Medway

Police Chase are $20 online/$25

day-of for the 5K for adults 25+

(free for seniors 70+) and $15 online

and $20 the day of for kids.

Town Police to Host Event as Part of

National Night Out, August 6th

By J.D. O’Gara

How about a night out, courtesy

of the Millis Police Department?

On Tuesday, August 6th,

from 4-8 p.m., the Millis Police

invite town residents out to

the Millis Town Fields, outside

Millis Town Hall, for National

Night Out. This is the first year

that the town has become one

of the 16,000 who take part in

this annual community-building

campaign that promotes policecommunity

partnerships and

neighborhood camaraderie

aimed at making neighborhoods

safer, more caring places to live.

“We as a police department

are putting this event on for free,”

says Officer Farrah Gray. “All police

officers are on deck – all of us

will have our station. We’re really

excited! All the officers here love

Millis. A lot of them have grown

up here, and those who haven’t

have made it into part of their

community. We’re really looking

forward to spending the night

with all of the residents in a positive


The national event began in

August of 1984 through an established

network of law enforcement

agencies, neighborhood

watch groups, civic groups, state

and regional crime prevention associations

and volunteers across

the nation. The first annual National

Night Out involved 2.5

million neighbors across 400

communities in 23 states. The

idea is to strengthen the relationship

between neighbors and law

enforcement while bringing back

a true sense of community under

positive circumstances.

Tri-County Student’s Project Aims for the Stars – Literally

By J.D. O’Gara

When you go to high school,

probably the last thing you expect

to do is create a part that

will be used by NASA, but that’s

exactly what Medway resident

and recent graduate Dominic

Parrella was able to do as an

engineering shop major at Tri-

County Regional Vocational

Technical High School in Franklin.

The school is part of NASA’s

HUNCH program (High School

Students Unite with NASA

to Create Hardware), and advanced

manufacturing is part of

the engineering shop. The school

even has an advanced manufacturing


“HUNCH prototype and design

is where NASA has a list of

problems, and they put it out to

all the schools that do HUNCH,”

explains Parrella. “NASA would

send us a blueprint, and we had

to create that project with all

the tolerances and features they

want. They sent us the metal they

wanted it to be in. Our dimension

could only be 1/5000th of

an inch below the target dimension.”

Dominic came in on the project

after another student had

begun it, working with teacher

Jeffrey McCall.

“A different student sautered

the project early in the year, but

he went out on coop,” says Mc-

Call. “Dom picked it up right

after we went through the design

phase very early on in the project.”

“We had to actually make

the part,” says Dominic, of the

ISS flight hardware parts, called

actuators. “Mr. McCall went

through the designing the tool

paths, and so I had to do all the

use in space, like storage and

bedding, things of that nature. It

wasn’t until this year that we really

had the capacity to do something

like that.”

“Probably the most impressive

part of this was that we milled 11

parts out, and those were our first

11 parts,” says Dominic. “All 11

of them were perfect, and they

loved the parts. They had great

surface finishes, no burrs, no

sharp edges. The actuators had

to fit into other small pieces.”

Dominic realizes he had a

unique opportunity in working

on this project.

“The project was almost a

simulation, a real job you’d have

in a real manufacturing facility.

We had a lot of unique teaching

moments, and it was a really

fun experience,” says Dominic,

who benefitted by being the sole

student working on the project

with Mr. McCall. “There are

certain lessons I don’t think Mr.

McCall would have been able

to teach.” Parrella, who’ll be

headed to UMass Dartmouth for

mechanical engineering in the

fall, is grateful, he says, for the

time Mr. McCall took to teach

him. “He could very well have

just instantly fixed the project

without me knowing, but he took

the time and purposefully taught

me every time. The project overall

was just an amazing learning


“So, a lot of these projects that

we’re doing, this project in particular,

you don’t always know the

end result of what you’re making

is. You may not have that mating

part. We made an actuator, and it

actually goes to some other part

that another school is making. It’s

important that they fit together,

and that is a real-world scenario,

on top of doing something for

NASA, which is a highly recognizable

organization. It’s quite an

opportunity for a young kid to be

able to do something like that.”

There’s one more perk

to working with the NASA

HUNCH program, says Dom.

space twice,” he says.

iStent Inject for Glaucoma

Living Healthy

By: Roger M. Kaldawy, M.D.

Milford Franklin Eye Center

Glaucoma is a progressive

disease of the optic nerve which

works like a cable, connecting

the eye and the brain. Glaucoma

happens when the pressure inside

the eye is higher than the optic

nerve can withstand. The most

common form of glaucoma is

silent in the beginning but can

cause a patient to slowly lose the

vision if left untreated, starting

with the peripheral vision. The

most frustrating characteristic of

glaucoma is that for many years,

the loss of vision will go unnoticed

by a patient.

The optic nerve is like a cable

made up of over 1 million nerve

fibers that carry the information

collected by your eye (retina) to

the visual cortex of the brain for

processing. Glaucoma slowly, decreases

the ability of your optic

nerve to carry this information to

your brain.

The buildup of pressure,

in your eye, causes glaucoma.

There are currently two basic

theories as to why excessive ocular

pressure causes glaucoma.

Either high intra-ocular pressure

decreases blood flow to the optic

nerve, or high pressure, over

time, physically crushes and kills

the individual nerve fibers.

At first, open-angle glaucoma

has no symptoms. Vision stays

normal, and there is no pain.

As glaucoma remains untreated,

people may notice that although

they see clearly in front of them,

they miss objects to the side and

out of the corner of their eye.

It may seem as though they are

looking through a tunnel. Over

time, the remaining vision may

decrease until there is no vision

left. Optic nerve damage caused

by glaucoma is permanent;

therefore, it is important to seek

treatment in the early stages of

the disease.

Glaucoma is a lifelong disease

that will always require treatment.

Glaucoma is much like hypertension

and diabetes. We can

control these diseases, however

we cannot, as of yet, cure them.

Today there are numerous ophthalmic

medications available to

us in the treatment of glaucoma.

Some are eye drops that are used

only once a day; others are used

up to four times a day. More

than one medication may be

used to treat glaucoma. If glaucoma

cannot be controlled with

medications other procedures,

including laser and surgery may

be considered.

The laser can be used in a focused

beam of light to treat the

drainage angle of the eye in an

additional attempt to lower the

pressure. This surgery makes it

easier for fluid to flow out of the

front part of the eye, decreasing

pressure inside the eye. Selective

laser trabeculoplasty or SLT is

the name of the laser procedure

used to lower the pressure. SLT

has been in use for more than 25

years in the United States and

around the world.

If drops and SLT are not controlling

the pressure, glaucoma

surgery may be needed. Minimally

invasive glaucoma surgery

is a newer approach to controlling

pressure. When compared

to classical glaucoma surgery,

this approach leads to much

less risk of complications. The

iStent inject is small device that

can be used during this type of

minimally invasive surgery and

can help reduce pressure inside

the eye. The iStent inject can

be performed as a stand-alone

surgery or if cataract surgery is

panned, at the same time as cataract


The iStent inject consists of

two very small, titanium stents

that are surgically implanted

into the trabecular meshwork

(the tissue that drains fluid away




from the eye). The stents create

tiny channels that fluid can drain

through, which helps to lower eye

pressure. Following the surgery,

most patients are able to stop or

reduce the number of eye drops

they use to treat their glaucoma.

The published data over the

last few years has shown that the

iStent inject system is effective at

lowering eye pressure. The procedure

is very quick. Through a

mini-incision in the front of the

eye, a special surgical instrument

is used to implant the stent into

the drainage tissue. A second

stent is implanted in a different

area of the tissue, before the instrument

is removed from the

eye. In experienced hands, the

iStent inject takes roughly two

minutes to insert.

At Milford Franklin Eye Center,

we use state-of-the-art technology

and lasers to diagnose

and treat a variety of eye problems,

including glaucoma. We

offer high definition optic coherence

tomography testing (OCT)

Millis Council on Aging Opens Age-Friendly Fitness Room

Thanks to $15K Donation from Middlesex Savings Bank

On Friday, June 28th, the Millis

Council on Aging dedicated

a new age-friendly fitness room,

made possible through funds

from a $15,000 donation from

Middlesex Savings Bank.

The Age Friendly Fitness

Room will be available to Senior

Center visitors and provide

an age friendly space for those

seniors who want to use lowimpact

fitness machines that are

easy to use and gentle on aging

joints and muscles. This gym will

provide a supportive atmosphere

that is comfortable for senior

adults and will keep them coming


“We are happy to be able to

provide a program that encourages

senior adults to be physically

and socially active in an effort to

maintain their health” said Patty

Kayo, Director of the Millis

Council on Aging. “We are very

grateful to the Middlesex Savings

Bank in assisting us with this program.

Without their assistance,

we would not be able to offer this

On Friday, June 28th, the Millis Council on Aging celebrated the opening of its age-appropriate fitness room. Exercise equipment for this room

was purchased with funds from a $15,000 donation from Middlesex Savings Bank.

wonderful opportunity to our senior


“With this gift, we want to

recognize the honorable work

that senior centers and councils

on aging do in our community,”

said Mike McAuliffe, president

and CEO of Middlesex Savings

Bank. “We hope the funding

helps support these organizations

provide on-going quality programs

for our local seniors.”

The $15,000 gift to the Millis

Council on Aging is part of a

cumulative gift of $1.4 million

that Middlesex Savings Bank distributed

to 84 non-profit organizations

including senior centers,

libraries and food pantries within

the Bank’s retail branch territory.

Through its charitable foundation,

Middlesex Savings made

donations in all towns that have

its bank branches – $50,000

apiece, with $20,000 to each

town’s food pantry, $15,000

to public library groups and

$15,000 for town senior centers.

Towns were free to spend the donations

in any way they needed,

no strings attached, said Carol

Brown, Regional Branch Manager

for Middlesex Savings Bank.

“We tried to benefit a wide range

of groups,” she said. The groups

chosen benefitted a large population

in each town.

“Our bank is doing well.

We’re a strong, healthy bank, and

the community is a huge part of

that,” said Brown. Supporting

the community, she says, is part

of the bank’s mission, “and we

wanted to thank our customers

and the community.”

Millis seniors can join the fitness

room for $100 a year.

“The best thing about it is

the electronic access,” says Patty

Kayo, director of the Millis Senior

Center. “As long as town

hall is open, people can use that


In addition to the equipment,

the room has a television and will

be air-conditioned. Although seniors

do need to have a health

clearance from their physician to

use the space for liability reasons,

they will have free range over

their workouts.

“Only four out of 351 senior

centers offer an unsupervised

fitness room,” says Kayo, who

notes that the room is for exercise,

not physical therapy sessions.

An added benefit, typical

of any senior center, is that not

only will Millis seniors be able to

keep fit, but they will also be able

to socialize with other seniors.

“That, I think, is the biggest

part,” says Kayo.

Medway Middle School Students

Win Award for Designing

Adaptive Children’s Toy

Medway Superintendent Armand

Pires is pleased to share

that a group of Medway Middle

School students won an award

for an adaptive toy they designed

for the annual Project Lead the

Way Children’s Hospital Design


Seventh grade students Kelsea

Anderson, Lily Bariteau,

Ellie Copeland, Caitlin MacNeil,

Emma Reardon and Bella Vallieres

were among 110 students

from 16 Massachusetts schools

that attended Mass STEM Hub’s

second annual design showcase









TUES @ 5PM, SAT. @ 10 AM



TUES. 9:30 & 10 AM,

FRIDAYS 1:00 & 1:30






for Project Lead the Way on

Tuesday, June 4, at the Merck

Research Laboratories in Boston.

Student groups were challenged

to design, test and build

an adaptive toy for a child with

cerebral palsy for the showcase

using their knowledge of the engineering

design process, critical

measurement and mathematical

modeling, computer-aided design

and cerebral palsy. Students

learned about these concepts in

a Design and Modeling Project

Lead the Way (PLTW) unit earlier

this school year.

At the showcase, students

presented their projects to doctors

and patients of the cerebral

palsy unit of Boston Children’s

Hospital. Gov. Charlie Baker and

Boston Children’s Hospital CEO

Sandra Fenwick also attended

the showcase and met with students

in the competition.

“This showcase was such a

wonderful opportunity for our

students to challenge themselves,”

Superintendent Pires

said. “They created incredibly

thoughtful, useful projects, and

it’s so exciting to see them using

the knowledge they gained this

school year to create something


Anderson, Copeland, Reardon

and Vallieres were awarded

the Practitioners’ Pick award at

the showcase, which is given to

the project with the most realworld

promise at the competition

each year. The four students built

a multi-functional fidget contraption

for the competition, which

they designed to support cognitive,

sensory and physical therapy

for children ages one through

12 with cerebral palsy. The toy

features matching, spinning, listening

and drawing games for

patients to play independently or

with an occupational therapist.

These features of the toy were

designed to engage the cerebral

palsy patient’s imagination and

senses while strengthening eyehand


MacNeil and Bariteau partnered

to build a “Toys for Kids

Fruit Matcher” toy for the showcase

as well, which tasks the patient

with matching a soft, squishy

“fruit” to a cup the same color

as that fruit. MacNeil and Bariteau

designed the toy to provide

cognitive, physical and sensory

therapy to children with cerebral

palsy during occupational therapy,

and to help patients stretch

their finger and hand muscles.

“Project Lead the Way has

done a wonderful job of engaging

our students and making

them excited to learn about

STEM topics,” said Medway

Middle School Principal Craig

Juelis. “This showcase gave

students an opportunity to see

first-hand how the topics they’re

learning about in class can be applied

to help others and make an

impact in the world, and that’s

truly incredible. Congratulations

to each of these students on a job

well done.”

Project Lead The Way is an

initiative of Mass STEM Hub,

an organization providing access

to and support for premier

STEM programming. Project

Lead The Way aims to make

STEM part of students’ regular

school day. The program offers

K-12 curriculum in engineering,

computer science, and biomedical

science that engages students

in problem-solving, critical

thinking, collaboration and communication.

A recent study revealed that

26% of workers plan on working

until the age of 70.1 Some may

decide to stay in the workforce

because they enjoy working, but

what about those who have different

ideas about how they want

to spend their golden years?

The good news is that for certain

people, there may be a solution.

New York Life conducted

research that shows that Baby

Boomers might be able to retire

up to two years sooner than

planned by including a deferred

income annuity in their retirement


Ralph Breaks the Internet

Typically, deferred income

annuities are positioned as products

that can be included in retirement

portfolios to guarantee

lifetime income in the future and

help mitigate the risk of outliving

retirement savings. Considering

that only 24% of Baby Boomers

are confident that they will

have enough savings to last for

retirement, those are certainly

important benefits.2 However,

an additional benefit could be an

earlier retirement start date.

Analysis shows that in certain

scenarios, purchasing a deferred

income annuity in pre-retirement

years allows individuals to retire

up to two years earlier without

incurring additional risk – as

measured by the probability of

running out of money during the

retiree’s projected retirement.3

That means two more years to

spend traveling, visiting with

grandchildren, and enjoying life

without work.

If you’re ready to get a head

start on your retirement, it may

be time to take a look at your retirement

portfolio to understand

what changes you can make to

get there sooner. Speak with your

financial professional to help ensure

that you’re headed towards a

secure and satisfying retirement.

the draft, they noted how unusual

it was for a small town to

be thrust into hockey’s limelight.

“It’s crazy how a small town has

two hockey players going to Division

1 colleges, and both getting

drafted by NHL teams,’’ Boldy

emphasized. Moynihan said:

“It doesn’t matter where you’re

from. If you’ve got passion for a

sport and an intense work ethic,

good things happen.’’

The 18-year-old Moynihan is

a native of Millis. He attended

the Clyde Brown Elementary

School (K-through Grade 4) and

his middle school years (Grades

5-8) were at the junior-senior

high school. He later attended

Noble & Greenough in Dedham

as a freshman and sophomore

before leaving for the National

Team Development Program in


Also 18, Boldy was born in

Millville and attended elementary

school there. He later lived

in Hopedale before moving to

Millis. While in Millis, he chose to

attend Medway schools (Grades

4-9). As a freshman at Medway

High, he hit .400 in baseball on

the frosh squad and he was the

No. 3 golfer on the varsity. As a

sophomore, he enrolled at the

Dexter School in Brookline before

joining the national development


Boldy, who played youth

hockey for seven years with the

South Shore Kings in Foxboro,

developed a love for hockey by

watching his older brother (Mike)

compete. Moynihan played

nine years of junior hockey in

Marlboro with the Minuteman


Both were excited to be

drafted after spending two years

in the national program with the

under-18 team that competed

in the United States Hockey

League. They both battled junior

league competition and

also faced off against colleges

like Harvard, Boston University,

North Dakota and Dartmouth.

The 6-foot-2, 196-pound Boldy

scored 33 goals and had 48 assists

in 64 games last season while

Moynihan scored 19 goals and

assisted on 27 others in 64 contests.

“I was a bit nervous,’’ said

Boldy, who attended the draft in

Vancouver. “I wasn’t sure where

I’d go but it’s a dream come true.

I’m super excited. Minnesota is

an awesome place to play and

to live. But, what’s important is

to establish myself as a quality

player at BC. I’ll take it one year

at a time and see what happens.’’

Moynihan, who’ll be facing

Boldy when PC battles the Eagles

in Hockey East action, was

thrilled to be selected by New

Jersey. “It’s an unbelievable feeling,’’

he said. “The Devils are a

great organization. I grew up as

a Bruins fan and thought about

a pro hockey career since the

fourth grade. But, I’ll go one day

at a time and strive to be the best

I can be at PC. I’d like to help

them win a championship.’’

The 5-foot-11, 183-pound

Moynihan watched the draft

with his parents (Patrice and

Michael) and twin sister (Ciara)

in Millis. He rates a victory over

Canada in the Under-18 World

Championships in Sweden as his

most memorable game. “It was

my last game for the national

team and the U.S. beat Canada

for a bronze medal,’’ he recalled.

“Canada is our rival and it’s always

a challenge to defeat them.

I didn’t get any points but it’s a

game I’ll always remember.’’

Boldy’s effort in the All-American

Prospects Game in Minnesota

during his second year with

the development program rates

No. 1. He scored two goals, including

the game-tying tally with

1:07 left in regulation, and assisted

on the game-winning goal

with just 36 seconds left in the

game. The then-17-year-old had

a team-high six shots on goal in

a 6-4 victory in the annual game

that showcases top Americanborn

NHL draft prospects.

“I was chosen as the MVP,’’

he noted. “There were a lot of

scouts at the game and it was

kind of ironic that the game

was played at the XCel Energy

Center, which is the Minnesota

Wild’s home arena.’’

Boldy said that getting selected

12th in the draft is “cool’’

but he’s acutely aware that it

doesn’t mean much. “It’s what

happens later,’’ he emphasized.

“It’s about what you do after

signing a contract.’’

Both skaters have similar

strengths that should be factors

as they progress through college

and more than likely in a minorleague

affiliate after they sign

contracts. Boldy is skilled and

technically solid. He’s also mentally

and physically tough, has a

high hockey IQ, his shot is hard,

and his release is quick. Moynihan

is also a high IQ player who’s

versatile, focuses on leadership

and also has a hard shot. Mentally

tough, he’s also quick on his


Immediately after the draft,

Boldy attended the Wild’s rookie

orientation camp. “It was a fiveday

stretch,’’ he said. “The days

were all good and I had fun. We

were watched closely.’’

The 2019 NHL draft had

a Millis flavor in the first and

sixth rounds. Boldy and Moynihan

pursued their dream to play

hockey in college and in the

pros by competing in a national

program, and they both were


But, best of all, they know

their roots. As Moynihan concluded:

“Going to Millis schools

was a good time; it’s a small town

where everyone knows each

other. And, I’ve got a great group

of friends.’’

Matthew Boldy and Patrick

Moynihan should be top-notch

college and pro hockey players

going forward and they’re already

outstanding ambassadors

for their hometown.

Whalen Looks Back on Her

Softball Success in Millis


By Christopher Tremblay,

Staff Sports Writer

Millis’s Cheyenne Whalen

has been playing softball as long

as she can remember. In fact, she

originally began with whiffle ball

before eventually joining the Millis

Youth Softball Program. Softball

was a big part of her life and

was something that she wanted

to do as much as she could, so

she began playing club softball

during the off-season. Whalen

played for the U12 Central Mass

Thunder, the U14 and U18

Metro West Thunder.

With her high school career

on the softball diamond now

complete and college fast approaching,

Whalen is hoping that

her athletic career will continue.

Whalen is headed to James Madison

University in Harrisburg,

Virginia where she is hoping to

play softball for the Division 1

school. The Dukes went 20-1 in

the Colonial Athletic Association

to capture the title and were

51-10 overall this past season.

“I’m contemplating on trying

out for the team, but I’m not

sure if I’d be able to commit to

playing softball and continue

studying academically,” the Millis

athlete said. “I’ll probably try

out for the team to see if I can

make it, but most likely I think

I’ll be playing club or intramural


Although playing in the collegiate

level is still up in the air,

Whalen has enjoyed her softball

career while at Millis. In the beginning,

she found herself behind

the plate and by the time

she got to the high school, she

was switched to the outfield for a

brief period of time.

“For my club teams, I was

playing the outfield and was

comfortable with the position

so the switch to it in high school

was no problem for me,” she

said. “But then about half way

through my freshman season,

our senior shortstop got hurt and

the coach moved me there, and

that’s where I played the last 3 ½

seasons for Millis.”

Making the move to shortstop,

Whalen found a bit nerve

racking at first, as she had never

played the infield prior to Coach

RJ Maturo moving her there.

“There is a lot that goes

into playing that position, like

you need to know what side of

the base to go to depending on

where the ball is hit, but you get

used to it. By the end of that year,

I was very comfortable playing

the position.”

The Mohawks Coach never

had any doubt in his mind that

the then freshman would pick up

the position.

“She’s a smart kid with great

athletic instincts and knows the

game,” Maturo said. “She started

off already having solid softball

skills as a freshman and then she

worked on the intangibles and

improved upon the little things

to become the softball player she

is today.”

As a four-year starter, three

and a half of those at shortstop,

the Millis native came to love the


“I did love playing catcher

when I was playing it, but I

haven’t played there in such a

long time,” Whalen said. “Shortstop

became my top position as

I feel that I’m better suited there

and really enjoy the action; there

is so much more action at shortstop

than in the outfield.”

Millis’ Cheyenne Whalen will head to James Madison University in

Harrisburg, VA, this fall. She plans to try out for the Division I softball

team, but academics will be her priority.

Although Maturo believes

that no matter where Whalen is

playing she is at the top of her

game, but he finds her ability at

the infield position tome more


“When she is on her game,

she is fun to watch,” he said.

“You never know what she’s

going to do, long throws from

the hole, turning double plays,

whatever it is.”

At the plate, Whalen has always

been a big hitter for the

Mohawks hitting in the third or

fourth slot in the lineup for Maturo.

With a month left before she

departs to head south to college

Whalen looks back upon her career

with Millis and only hopes

that she can take that with her to

the James Madison softball team.

Millis Theatre Group

Announces Auditions

for Ken Ludwig’s

Baskerville, a

Comedy, Directed by

Mark Prokes

From Samuel French – “Comedic

genius Ken Ludwig (Lend

Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo)

transforms Arthur Conan

Doyle’s classic The Hound of

the Baskervilles into a murderously

funny adventure. Sherlock

Holmes is on the case. The male

heirs of the Baskerville line are

being dispatched one by one. To

find their ingenious killer, Holmes

and Watson must brave the desolate

moors before a family curse

dooms its newest heir. Watch as

our intrepid investigators try to

escape a dizzying web of clues,

silly accents, disguises, and deceit

as five actors deftly portray more

than forty characters. Does a

wild hellhound prowl the moors

of Devonshire? Can our heroes

discover the truth in time?”

The show is performed in total

by only 5 ACTORS! One actor

each portrays Sherlock Holmes

and Dr. John Watson, the other

three actors play the remaining

actors. Accents are encouraged

but not required for the audition.

be considered for all roles. Auditions

will consist of readings from

the script. Please wear comfortable

clothing that is easy to move

twinkle in his eye.

Dr. John Watson – (30’s or

and confidant of Sherlock

Holmes. Watson is the more

grounded of the two, he records

Gray is Here to Stay in

Home Designs

Decorating a home in neutral

tones has long been recommended

as a way to sell a home

quickly. But the color gray also

provides a blank canvas for

homeowners who have no intention

of putting their homes on

the market anytime soon.

Beige and white have long

been go-to colors for neutral living

spaces. But many interior

decorators now look to gray as

the neutral color of choice.

Design experts advise that

gray has a broad range. Gray

can include everything from silver

to charcoal to a dusty cloud.

According to the trendsetters at

Glidden Paints, gray coordinates

well with other colors. Plus, the

neutral appeal of gray boasts a

timeless quality.

Gray is not a clear-cut color

that’s simply a 50-50 blend of

white and black. Gray has subtle

nuances that can lean toward

blues, greens, taupes, and more

depending on the lighting and

surrounding furnishings. That

means that homeowners who are

ready to replace their furniture

or accessories need not necessarily

repaint if they’ve previously

decorated in shades of gray.

Individuals need only replace

small items to produce a big effect

in rooms where gray is dominant.

Because gray is so neutral,

it works with soft, calming colors

in various pastels, but equally

as well with bright reds, yellow

and oranges, according to Scott

Bodenner, a Brooklyn-based textile


Gray also is a predominant

color in natural stones used

throughout homes in entryways,

bathrooms and kitchens. It can

make design sense to maintain

continuity throughout by dabbling

in gray elsewhere.

Designers have shown how

gray does not have to be cold,

industrial or gloomy. It can be

sophisticated in just about any

room of the house. More designers

are now leaning toward

warmer variations of gray, such

as taupes and blends dubbed

“greige,” that are beautiful but

not as stark as pure gray.

Client Testimonial to Laina Kaplan:

“I’m sitting at my desk at work staring out the window thinking, “What the heck

happened here?This wonderful woman came into our lives, helped us get a house FULL

of stuff decluttered, and staged; got the best photographer, and then sold the house the

first minute we put it on the market to a really great buyer!” That’s what I was thinking.

You are THE best realtor I have ever dealt with (and you are a lot of fun too-you throw a

heck of a good party on top of it all)! Thank you, Laina!!!!!” - Suzanne atryzek, Medway
