Cow Lines Are Down For Juliette to do Her Deed
Welcome to "About Town," a new column that will keep you up to the minute with what's what, who's who and what the town's talking about. Check in often, because we will be updating often. And if you see or hear something we could use here, let us know.
Memorial Field was a hot spot as Dedham Park and Rec prepared the field for this Sunday. The plots were painted in - all 3000 square feet of them - this afternoon.
It may seem easy, but takes time to get this plot painting done. They had spikes in the ground top and bottom to make sure the lines were all straight. They seemed to be having a good time though as they all had smile on their faces. Frank Fitzgerald and Matt Pitt took turns using the machine to paint the lines. Thank you DPR for your hard work and dedication.
Update from London
Danielle Lapointe, lifelong Dedham resident who graduated from Dedham High School in 2005, and from UMass in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in architecture and design, is having a blast in London exploring the city and getting to know the area.
She will be attending London Metropolitan University to earn a master's degree in interior design. She has only been there for a week now and says there is so much she has, hasn't, and still wants to take in and explore. She will be starting classes on Oct. 4, and is excited to be there, and take steps into her future.

They are looking for a versatile image that captures a sense of Dedham's history and community spirit. It should be a flexible image that works on everything from a website to banners, T-shirts, commemorative ornaments, e-mails and other materials.
You can send your submissions to Dedham375@dedham-ma.gov, include your name, your mailing address, your preferred email address and a brief statement explaining your design.
