Lynnfield residents to perform in Wakefield Repertory Youth Theatre’s production of “Shrek”

alt

Come join Wakefield Repertory Youth Theatre (WRYT) as they proudly present the fun-filled, family-friendly “Shrek the Musical” the first weekend of August. “Shrek the Musical” will be performed at the Melrose Performing Arts Center, which is located at the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School at 350 Lynn Fells Pkwy., on Thursday, August 3, Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5 at 7:30 p.m. as well as at matinee on Saturday, August 5 at 1 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $10 for children under 18. Tickets will be available at the door and online at http://www.ticketstage.com/T/WRT.

Wakefield Repertory Youth Theatre is a six-week theater program devoted to teaching children about theater, from onstage singing, dancing and acting to the behind the scenes magic of set design, lighting and costuming while putting together a spectacular musical theater production.

WRYT has a long and illustrious history of fabulous children’s theatre. Past productions of “Wizard of Oz,” “Seussical,” “Peter Pan,” “Annie” and “My Son Pinocchio” have begun to build a strong theatrical foundation for youths with an appreciation and interest in the arts. We have seen our costs soar to great heights and come together to create theatre – yet at the end of the day we are most proud of the family that WRYT has become and the legacy and impact that this program has on the community and its students.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek ....” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero” —Music Theatre International.

The production is directed by Adam Schuler, with music direction by Samantha Prindiville, choreography by Sarah DiTonno, stage management by Grace Dolan and production management by Alison Butts.

Please join and share the “Shrek the Musical” Facebook event page at https:// www.facebook.com/ vents/200400753812987/?ref=br_rs. Join us in support of the Lynnfield residents performing: Rory Carvalho and Julia Colucci.


 

Town to conduct inspections to update assessors records

The Department of Revenue (DOR) mandates that all cities and towns physically inspect all properties at least every nine years. This is to ensure that the property data is correct in the computer-assisted mass appraisal system in order that values be calculated accurately. The collection and maintenance of current and accurate property inventory data is a critical element in determining uniform, fair market value.

In order to meet the DOR’s requirement, Patriot Properties staff, on behalf of the Board of Assessors, will conduct inspections for those properties that have not been visited within the last nine years. The staff will begin inspections August 2, 2017 and should be completed by September 1, 2017. They will have identification and a Letter of Authorization from the Board. Property owners will be asked for a complete interior and exterior inspection of your property. If a property owner is not home, an exterior inspection will be conducted.

The Board of Assessors wishes to thank Lynnfield residents in advance for their support of this effort to improve the accuracy of their records by completing this part of our cyclical inspection program. If you have any questions, you can contact the office at (781) 334-9450 or email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Governor Baker files sales tax holiday legislation

Speaker DeLeo voices opposition, cites budget shortfall

BOSTON – Governor Charlie Baker filed legislation on Wednesday designating August 19-20, 2017, as Massachusetts’s sales tax holiday weekend to renew a tax-free weekend that generally occurs every year in the Commonwealth. The legislation would suspend the state’s 6.25% retail sales tax for the weekend on purchases of goods costing $2,500 or less, which will provide a welcome relief to consumers and bolster sales at businesses.

“The sales tax holiday gives consumers a much needed break and supports business across the Commonwealth for our hardworking retailers,” said Governor Baker. “We look forward to working with the Legislature to make this important weekend possible so the Commonwealth can shop local and make purchases tax-free.”

“A tax-free weekend provides consumers with a great opportunity to support local businesses while saving money,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “This weekend will especially help out parents who are looking to make back-to-school purchases, and I look forward to working with our partners in the Legislature to see this legislation passed.”

“The sales tax holiday weekend supports both Main Street and consumers in the Commonwealth, while also boosting economic activity in our cities and towns,” said Administration and Finance Secretary Kristen Lepore.

In a statement from House Speaker Rep. Robert A. DeLeo, “It makes little sense for the Governor to file this legislation now when there are several similar bills already in committee. Each year our hope is to hold a sales tax holiday to give our hardworking citizens and local businesses a boost, which is why the House votes consistently in favor of the sales tax holiday whenever revenues allow.

This year, the Commonwealth experienced unpredicted revenue shortfalls and accordingly, the Legislature had to make significant budget cuts to programs and services. In doing so, however, we protected and prioritized the most critical services and programs. We also maintained our support for local cities and towns. These choices ultimately benefit local businesses, all of which require a strong local economy and infrastructure to thrive in the long-term.

In addition, we will continue to work with local retailers to support federal action on creating a level playing field for internet and brick-and-mortar businesses alike. ”
