  • DARE To Remember 5K Race Announced

    Posted by Peter Delani on 8/1/2018 7:30:00 AM

    The DARE TO REMEMBER 5K race in honor of Boxford Police Officer Michelle Nowak's work and contributions to our community will be run on Friday, September 21, 2018.  Please see the letter below from Zoe and Jack Milmoe detailing how to support the race.

    Dare To Remember 5K

    Good Morning:


    The Boxford Selectmen approved unanimously last night the DARE TO REMEMBER 5K to be run on Friday, Septemeber 21, 2018 on Boxford Common.  Please find a way to support, promote, and send along this race link to any resource or mailing list you feel will can promote this wonderful celebration of Michele Nowak’s life. All race information you could need is contained on the link.  We look forward to seeing you at the starting line on September 21st! Please feel free to contact at 978-979-3545 or  VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!



    The DARE TO REMEMBER expression started by Zoe Milmoe as a response to the passing of Officer Michelle Nowak on September 23, 2017.  This tragic event affected the lives of so many within the Communities of Boxford, Middleton, Danvers, and the law enforcement community at large.  Michele’s passing was a devastating loss to her husband Mark and children Allyson and Christopher as well as a larger community who cherished her life.     With the profound assistance of Boxford and Middleton Police Departments  Zoe’s  keepsake bracelets expressing “DARE TO REMEMBER,”  raised more than $1800 towards her goal of placing a memorial paver on Boxford Commons in Officer Nowak’s honor.  This will be accomplished this fall.  Zoe and her fellow 6th graders did not have a DARE class this past year because of this tragic event.  Zoe and her family want Officer Nowak’s passing to have a positive and profound impact on the community for years to come by raising funds for DARE education.  The new goal for DARE TO REMEMBER is a 5K race that will start and end on Boxford Common where her memorial paver will be placed.


    Officer Nowak had a commitment to community and school children for more than a decade in both Boxford and Middleton.  Her DARE program had lasting impacts upon the students she reached and the times she spent with people within both communities.  Officer in Boxford (badge83) and Middleton (badge 219) she was a past President of DARE Massachusetts.  The goal for this 5K would be to get registration somewhere between 100-300 runners.  The hope is to generate a gross amount in excess of $5000.  This combined with sponsorship and past raised funds should allow the Boxford DARE program to be completely funded without the PTO or Police contribution for years to come, but definitely in 2018!  In addition, some proceeds to the Boxford Common future complex costs for their gracious hosting, as well as a funding mechanism for teaching kids through DARE programs as Boxford Police and schools deem appropriate.


    This is a close community and this race has partnered with entities that help to make Boxford the special strong community that Michele so loved.  The Institution for Savings will be our lead sponsor and celebrated in our commemorative race t-shirt.    This first race will be memorable in so many ways.  Hopefully you will join with us to promote this event through your, mailing lists, blogs, and social media access.  Help us celebrate the life of Michele Nowak on the year anniversary of her passing.


    Thank you for your assistance!

    Credit for Life Fair Credit For Life

    On May 22nd, 850 11th-grade students from area high schools (154 from Masconomet) participated in the Credit For Life Fair held at Masconomet Regional High School put on by the Institution of Savings.  When students arrived, they had already chose a profession to simulate the life of a 25 year old starting out in the real world.  Many students dressed the part with nurses wearing scrubs and stethoscopes as well as many in professional business attire and suits.  Based on their profession, each student received a salary and a credit score which would determine what kind of rates they would get when looking to purchase housing and transportation.  In all there were over 20 booths that students visited with over 160 area volunteers helping out.  Most of them Institution for Savings employees but many were volunteers from the community.  The booths ranged from housing, transportation, health and wellness, reality check, safety and security, furniture, food and more.

    Jazz1 Jazz2

    Congratulations to the Masco Music Department for the outstanding jazz concert last night, May 7th.    The Masco Music Parent Association transformed the large cafeteria into a jazz club.   All the Masco jazz groups (Jazz Choir, Jazz 2.0, Percussion Ensemble and Jazz I) performed at the concert.  One of the highlights was the featured guest trumpet player Trent Austin.  Mr Austin is an international jazz artist and educator with quite an impressive resume.  He came and taught a workshop with the MS and HS Jazz Bands last week and then returned last night to perform with the bands.  It was a great concert and a real showcase for all our jazz musicians.

  • What "Masco" Is All About

    Posted by Peter Delani on 5/3/2018 3:00:00 PM

    Sam Gordon

    Masco Alum Sam Gordon (pictured left) now currently a Junior at Emerson College sent a nice email to his former Masco Journalism Teacher Michelle Siden:  Thought I'd share Sam's warm thoughts and good news: 

     To Ms Siden,

    This past week has been a wild ride to put it lightly. But it all started when I turned on the T.V to watch Boston 25 News. I saw a story about a young woman who now dying of cancer, wished to meet New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.

    So, doing what a journalist is supposed to do. I followed the story and did an article interviewing Justyna as well as her mother about their fight and her desire to meet Edelman.

    The article made its rounds and eventually reached Edelman who shared it with his mother. In two days time, Boucher was able to meet with her idol making her wish come true.

    After the event took place, I opened my laptop and recounted the event (the article is below.) Only to see posts like this pop up all over Facebook with the family and their utmost generosity and thankfulness towards me.

     The work I had done made a difference and that's what a journalist is supposed to do. You taught me this and I am forever grateful with the gift you gave me in those years at Masconomet.


    Thank you
