LYNNFIELD — While

Lynnfield High School’s Class

of 2021 showed its resilience

this past year, graduating despite

a pandemic is not what

defines them.

Valedictorian Anthony Zhang

made that clear as he described

the uniqueness of his fellow

graduates before all 171 of

them crossed the stage on the

Lynnfield High football field to

receive their diplomas Friday

night.

“All of our journeys have

been unique, but the symbol

of our accomplishments is the

same,” Zhang said. “That’s the

beauty of this. Today is a celebration

of both community and

uniqueness. Whether your passions

are in the classroom or on

the stage or on this very field,

you’re all here in one place.

You’re all Pioneers.”

Wallin does it all for McDonald’s

By anne Marie ToBin

LYNNFIELD — A

Lynnfield businesswoman

is taking to heart an old

McDonald’s slogan — “We

do it all for you” — in the

hopes they will not only encourage

more people to get

vaccinated, but also reward

those who are.

Lindsay Wallin, owner

of nine North Shore-area

McDonald’s restaurants, is

offering a free medium hot

or iced coffee through the

end of June to customers

who are fully vaccinated.

Proof is not required — it’s

all on the honor system.

She is also giving a cash

incentive to her employees

to get vaccinated, offering

$100 to each upon full

vaccination.

“My philosophy in business

has always been ‘why

not,’ so my business partner

(Vipan Khosla) and I just

decided to do it,” Wallin

said. “Seventy-five percent

of my 450 employees live

in Lynn, and I know that

Lynn has a slower rate of

vaccination. Some of them

are very cautious about

getting the vaccine. I am

hopeful this will give them

a reason to put their hesitancy

aside.”

Wallin is no stranger to

McDonald’s. Her father,

Bob King, and mother,

Judy Hajjar, owned several

restaurants. Early on,

Wallin had little interest

in going into the family

business. A graduate of

Winchester High School,

Wallin ventured out on her

own, working at places like

Starbucks and Bertucci’s

while in high school and

college.

“Back then, I didn’t want

to go down the same path so

I didn’t work for my family,”

said Wallin.

LYNNFIELD — Now that the proposed

left consists of mostly rather mundane

housekeeping articles, says Phil

Crawford, vice chair of the Select

Board.

Still, Crawford says, “it’s important

Wallin does it all for McDonald’s

WALLIN

FROM PAGE 1

After graduating from Babson

College, Wallin worked in real

estate for a few years before finally

deciding to work with her

father. It wasn’t easy, however.

Wallin underwent five years

of intense training, after which

she was approved as an owner/

operator. She bought her first

restaurant (Route 1 Southbound

in Saugus) from her father in

May 2009.

“I was fortunate, as now it’s

almost impossible to become an

owner/operator unless you are

‘next generation’ or a spouse,”

Wallin said. “There are a few

out there, but not many.”

Wallin said the nature of

ownership has changed significantly,

with owners typically

owning 10 or more restaurants

compared to an average of two

or three just a few years ago.

King owned 14 restaurants

at the time of his retirement in

September 2019, six of which

were purchased by Wallin

shortly thereafter. Wallin’s holdings

include locations in Lynn

(Boston Street), Middleton

(Route 114), Danvers (Route

114, Endicott Street), Salem

(Traders Way), Saugus (Route

1 North and South) and Beverly

(Elliot Street).

Love

When the pandemic struck,

Wallin knew it was serious.

“I woke up the morning before

the schools closed and

knew it was trouble and was

going to get bad,” she said. “We

had a corporate visit that had

been scheduled pre-pandemic.

We debated, ‘should we close

the kiosks? Should we close

inside?’ We were trying to be

aggressively responsible. We

ended up being one of the only

food services to serve in a relatively

safe way.”

Wallin said she scrambled to

purchase personal protective

equipment (PPE) overseas so

her employees could manage

operations safely.

“It was really hard to get

PPE, but we had a really big

opportunity to excel and be the

heroes in the industry,” she said.

“We eventually closed down the

dining room and had only drivethrough,

which I love because

drive-through doesn’t work unless

you have great teamwork,

so we were thankful to have

that.”

As cases started coming onto

the premises, Wallin knew

many of her employees were

afraid.

“Our priority was finding

ways to help our crews,” said

Wallin. “We sent them home

with take-home dinners after

every shift. People really appreciated

it.”

To help customers, Wallin

reduced the prices of Happy

Meals to $1.99 and increased

reliance on third-party delivery

services.

The restaurants also offered

free meals to first responders,

firemen and police officers.

With two school-aged children,

Wallin knew firsthand the

challenges parents were facing

with remote learning. Her solution?

Bringing her kids to the

office.

“Doing home-schooling

was just a ridiculous burden

on parents and I knew it because

I was one of them,” she

said. “I put two cubicles in my

Saugus office, we made lunches

Lynnfield High graduates 171

GRADUATION

FROM PAGE 1

It’s because of what the Class

of 2021 has gone through that

Zhang spent the time during

his speech not giving his classmates

advice but congratulating

them on what they’d done to

make it there.

“That’s why I have no advice

to give, you’ve already done it

yourself,” Zhang said. “You’ve

each survived your own obstacles

and, despite it all, have

forged your own path. I have

no advice, because everything

you’ve achieved is because

of the decisions that you have

made. These decisions have

changed us and led us to who

we are today.”

At the time of their graduation,

the Class of 2021 had

accomplished plenty. It wasn’t

always easy for them, especially

with the school’s switch

from remote to hybrid learning

several times throughout their

senior year before finally finishing

with in-person learning.

“You couldn’t have created

a more difficult scenario,”

Principal Robert Cleary said.

“But through it all, this class

has taken it in stride. They

stayed focused on what they

needed to get done and they did

it. They worked hard, they persevered

and they were resilient.

These are the life lessons that

matter far more than anything

you see in a textbook. These

are the skills that will separate

them from those who graduated

before them.”

Student Council President

Ava O’Brien expanded on some

of those accomplishments,

which she hopes will just be

a starting point for the rest of

their lives.

“Senior year, we applied to

colleges all while attending

Lynnfield High graduate Yvonne Chen walks back to her seat after receiving her diploma.

class over Zoom, something we

never thought would happen,”

O’Brien said. “Despite that,

our senior class managed to get

into amazing universities and

programs all over the country.

We truly overcame all that we

were faced with in high school

through persistence and determination.

That is how I know

the Class of 2021 will succeed

tremendously in life.”

As the Class of 2021 goes

on to accomplish more in

their lives, they’ll always be

linked by the bonds they made

throughout their time in the

Lynnfield Public Schools, said

Class President Kiera Burns.

“This is a huge step that we

won’t take alone,” Burns said.

“Today we are surrounded

by not only our families and

teachers but the other 171

people in our class who we have

spent the majority of our lives

with up until this point.

PHOTO | SPENSER HASAK

“We may not be together like

this from now on, but we will

never be alone. We are a part of

something bigger. We are the

Class of 2021 — the class who

graduated and made post-grad

plans despite a pandemic. The

class that was resilient.”

Town Meeting time is 10 am Saturday

MEETING

FROM PAGE 1

The meeting will be held

on Saturday, June 12, 10 a.m.

at the high school athletic

field in conformity with the

Commonwealth’s COVID-19

guidelines for outdoor events.

The meeting will be moved

into the gym if it rains.

Of the 19 articles on the

warrant, No. 13 and 15 appear

to be the biggest, Crawford

said.

No. 13 concerns the extra

classrooms that will be built

at the Huckleberry Hill and

Summer Street schools, and

15 concerns a proposal to upgrade

equipment in the schools

through Trane Heating and

Cooling Systems.

The school article would involve

approximately $1.75 million,

Crawford said, which is in

addition to the money approved

last year in the budget.

“The town approved the

building project, but we didn’t

know how much it would cost,”

he said.

Much of the money involved

reflects work that has to be done

at the Summer Street School.

“In the area where they want

to put the addition, we found

long-standing drainage issues

on the existing property and the

adjacent one,” said Crawford.

“The right thing to do is fix it.”

The increase also involves

the rise in material costs due

to shortages brought on by the

COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have to have a larger

contingency to offset those cost

increases,” he said. “One other

thing is that you have additional

safety measures, particularly at

the Summer Street School.”

Crawford said the 15th article

“is an interesting one.

“The Trane company makes

some of the finest equipment

on the commercial side, HVAC

(heating, ventilation and air

conditioning) things. We can

pay for it out of the money we

save by having more efficient

equipment.

“In the schools we did over

20 years ago, a lot of that equipment

is end-of-life,” Crawford

said. “I’ve always been of the

opinion that you need up-todate

equipment of that nature.

It would be a nice thing for the

town to have.”

Crawford cautioned that just

because the issues on this warrant

— minus the tree bylaw

— aren’t eye-popping, they are

nevertheless important.

“The budget is obvious,” he

said “It’s the biggest thing we

do.”

Also to be decided are new

fee schedules.

“Some fees we can change,

and some we can’t,” he said.

“We have to have town approval.

In some fees, we are far

below what every other town

charges. The new fees put us in

the middle.”

A senior tax reduction proposal

is also on the warrant, as

is recodification of the Storm

Water Management Plan and

the acceptance of Zapaj Lane as

a town street.

Moulton seeking money

for Summer Street work

FOR THE WEEKLY NEWS

LYNNFIELD — Money to

finalize design work for Summer

Street's reconstruction is included

in $40 million in federal

streetwork spending, which is

something U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton

is seeking.

The Summer Street money

is important because street improvements

would take place on

one of the town's most frequently-traveled

thoroughfares. The

Summer Street School section

of the street sees high traffic and

pedestrian traffic.

Moulton nominated the Summer

Street project for funding as

part of his May request for Community

Project Funding (CPF),

which are projects that Moulton

sent to the House Committee

on Appropriations, and Member

Designated Projects (MDP),

which are sent to the House

Committee on Transportation

and Infrastructure. Moulton is

a member of the Transportation

and Infrastructure Committee.

“My team and I vetted a long

list of requests for Community

Project Funding to deliver resources

where they’ll have the

greatest impact on the ground in

Massachusetts.” Moulton said.

“We’re moving these projects

forward in the process to deliver

on some of my top goals: easing

traffic, giving people more freedom

and options to move about

beyond cars, and addressing the

chronic lack of mental health

care.”

Community Project Funding

requests were created this year

after the Democrats became the

majority party in the House and

Senate. They allow members of

Congress to address the most

significant needs of the communities

they represent by submitting

10 qualified, local projects

that have community support

to the Appropriations Committee

for consideration of targeted

federal funds.

Moulton’s nomination is the

first step for the projects, and it

is possible not all of them will

receive funding. Next, the relevant

federal agencies and the

Appropriations Committee will

review all of the submissions

and determine which will be

possible to include in Congress'

annual appropriations bills.

Those bills will go through

multiple rounds of markups and

eventual passage in the House

and the Senate, and eventually

head to the President’s desk.

Pioneers fall

just short on

Senior Day

BOYS LACROSSE

By Daniel Kane

LYNNFIELD — The

Lynnfield boys lacrosse team

celebrated its Seniors Day last

week and despite a 9-6 loss to

visiting Ipswich the Pioneers

still got some nice performances

by their seniors.

“Overall it was just a nice

effort by a lot of our seniors,”

Lynnfield coach Pat Lamusta

said. “That was great to see.”

Drew Damiani led the way

with three goals and two assists.

Myle McKay had one goal and

one assists while Will Steadman

and Janssen Sperling each had

one goal.

“Drew played great as did

our goalie Niko Marotta who

had 18 saves. Michael Drehr is

another confident while John

Briggs is a really important

presence. Those are really our

four big senior leaders.”

As for the game, Lynnfield

actually kept things tight for

most of the day.

Both teams struggled to find

a footing in a defensive first

half. When the dust settled both

teams were tied a 5-5 heading

into the break.

The Pioneers grabbed a 6-5

lead in the second half but

Ipswich snuck past the last few

goals to steal the win.

in loss to North Reading

SOFTBALL

By Daniel Kane

LYNNFIELD — The

Lynnfield softball team didn’t

get the bats going or have its

sharpest day in the field, which

spelled disaster in a 12-0 loss to

a strong North Reading team at

home Thursday.

The Pioneers ran into a great

pitcher in North Reading’s Shea

Hanson and any time they did

make solid contact the Hornets

defense was there to clean it up.

“You’re talking about one of

the best teams in the league and

their pitcher is good,” Lynnfield

coach Peter Marinelli said.

“There’s no doubt about that. I

told my kids to go up there and

take your three cuts. If you miss

all three — fine, if you make

contact — fine, just do the best

you can. When you’re playing

against good teams that’s all

you can do. You never know

what can happen if you just get

your bat on the ball.”

Chloe Shapleigh, who laid

down a bunt single in the first,

and Ava Gamache (infield

single) had the only two hits for

the Pioneers on the day.

Freshman Sophia Brown

pitched all seven innings for

Lynnfield, and allowed 13 hits

and hit two batters with a pair

of strikeouts.

“(Thursday), defensively we

just really looked like we were

out of it,” Marinelli said. “I honestly

believe our pitcher pitched

a good game. I know they

scored 12 runs and that doesn’t

sound right, but she did. There

were plenty of times where, if

we made our defensive plays,

I don’t think they should’ve

gotten more than five runs. But

I give (North Reading) the benefit

of the doubt because that’s a

good team.”

But between missed cutoff

throws and some other mental

miscues, the Pioneers gave up

far too many extra bases to back

up Brown’s performance.

“All year long we talk to the

kids about communicating in

the field,” Marinelli said. “We

got none of that (Thursday).

That’s what has to happen. You

have to communicate so people

don’t get hurt. At times we look

outstanding and other times we

look like we’re not sure what

we’re doing.”

The Hornets pushed across a

run early in the first inning on

a passed ball, but a strikeout by

Brown got Lynnfield out of any

more trouble.

North Reading added three

more in the next two innings

thanks to a pair of singles, a sacrifice

fly and a fielder’s choice

to go ahead 4-0.

It seemed like Lynnfield had

settled down with a clean fourth

inning, but mistakes piled up in

the fifth and the Hornets tacked

on four more runs to run away

with things and stretch the lead

to 8-0.

Lynnfield batters struck out

six times in the final three innings,

while North Reading

had no problem putting the bat

on the ball. The Hornets added

runs in the sixth and seventh to

cap off the 12-0 win.

“We’re trying to get them to

think before the pitch is thrown

— if the balls hit them in the

ground or the air what they’ll do

with it,” Marinelli said. “Being

a young team is obviously part

of the problem but they don’t

seem to be preparing mentally.”

The Pioneers (7-5) will

look to end the regular season

with a win for their two seniors

— Chloe Shapleigh and

Reilly Ganter — on Senior

Day Wednesday (3:45) at home

against Pentucket.

St. Mary’s pitcher Eric Bridges earned the win on the mound after tossing a complete game and

striking out seven batters.

St. Mary’s baseball tops

rival Bishop Fenwick

By Mike Alongi

PEABODY — The St.

Mary’s baseball team didn’t

make it easy, but the Spartans

used some late-inning magic

to grind out a 2-1 win over

Catholic Central League rival

Bishop Fenwick on the road

Monday afternoon.

With the victory, the Spartans

have now won six straight

games.

It was an impressive day

on the mound for St. Mary’s

freshman Eric Bridges, who

tossed a complete game to earn

the victory. Bridges only needed

77 pitches to get through the

outing, allowing one unearned

run on three hits with seven

strikeouts and no walks.

The Spartans were only able

to scatter three hits in the win,

with two of them coming from

the bat of Terence Moynihan —

who turned out to make the deciding

play of the game. Lucas

Fritz also added a hit in the win.

Fenwick also got a strong

pitching performance, with

sophomore Anthony Marino

going the distance and allowing

two unearned runs on three hits

with eight strikeouts and two

walks.

The Crusaders’ bats could

also only muster three hits, with

Scott Emerson going 2-for-3

and Alex Gonzalez going

1-for-3.

It was Fenwick that struck

first in this one, taking advantage

of a St. Mary’s mistake in

the bottom of the first inning.

After Emerson singled with one

out and advanced to second on a

fielder’s choice, Costa Beechin

grounded into what should

have been the inning-ending

out. But a fielding error by the

Spartans kept the play alive,

and Emerson was able to race

around and score to make it 1-0

Crusaders.

But St. Mary’s answered right

back. Moynihan opened the inning

with a single and then stole

second base to get into scoring

position. After Fritz singled to

left field, Moynihan was able

to come all the way around to

score from second on a Fenwick

error, tying the score at 1-1.

And there the score remained.

Both Bridges and Marino settled

into a real groove on the

mound, although both teams

threatened with a runner on

third base in their respective

halves of the third inning.

Finally, in the top of the seventh,

St. Mary’s made a move.

It was Moynihan providing

the spark once again, leading

off the inning with a double.

Marino was able to get two

outs after that, but then Jason

Donohue stepped into the box

and hit a line drive that knocked

off the glove of the Fenwick

first baseman and bounded into

right field, allowing Moynihan

to come around for the goahead

run.

Bridges then took that momentum

to the mound in the

bottom of the seventh, retiring

the side in order to seal the

victory.

Lynnfield graduate taking the EDM world by storm

By Tréa Lavery

LYNNFIELD — Eighteenyear-old

Brandon Greenstein

may have just graduated from

high school, but the musician

and producer is already making

a name for himself as The

BreakBomb Project.

Greenstein reached the milestone

of 1 million streams on

Spotify earlier this year, and in

May, he dropped a new single,

“Drugs Don’t Work,” along

with college freshman Ryan

Violet. His electronic dance

music (EDM) tracks, which he

describes as “deep house,” are

produced in his home.

“I’ve been lucky to work with

vocalists and other producers

and instrumentalists my age,”

Greenstein said. “I’ll spend a

couple hours getting drums,

melody and chords down, then

I’ll have people come in and

feed me ideas.”

Greenstein has been interested

in dance music since he

was a child observing his DJ

father; it was through him that

the younger Greenstein was inspired

to follow the same path.

He started producing his own

music as a freshman in high

school, inspired by artists like

Porter Robinson and Martin

Garrix, two performers who

made it big as teens.

Greenstein started DJing at

friends’ parties and loved it. He

performed his first real show in

a Boston club last year, and said

it was an incredible experience

— up until the next morning,

when the COVID-19 pandemic

shut down clubs for over a year.

On June 6, Greenstein had

the opportunity to perform live

again at The Grand, a nightclub

in Boston.

“In a club, it’s a completely

different experience. It’s so fun

and rewarding,” he said. “I love

performing live. Especially

when you’re making the music,

seeing everyone’s reaction is

the best feeling in the world.”

Next year, Greenstein will

head off to Emerson College

to study media arts production,

where he looks forward to continuing

to DJ and work on his

music.

“I was lucky enough to have

a lot of people like my parents

and a lot of friends and my

school support me and give me

time to work on this,” he said.

“A million streams is an unreal

number to me.”
