If you haven't reserved your seats for the Legends for Literacy Gala and it's because you think $150 is a little expensive, remember the $250 you may have given for the Street Painting Festival in years past. Two Gala tickets for just $50 more -- and you get to meet the Legends. (not to mention supporting teachers and kids...) Reserve online now at

Mary Brewster--$ welcome to Marco and welcome back to George Babcock.
PP Randy Dittmar--$ Happy to see books on his way into the meeting.
Our very own Pete Brock shared his insightful analysis of the Patriots home opener and thoughts on the remainder of the season.
Pete described some of the game action and then moved on to the signing of Antonio Brown. He pointed out that the Pats were one of the few teams that had the salary cap room to pull this off due to their management discipline. 
Pete also had some warm words for Josh Gordon and his comeback after rehab last year. Josh posted a very powerful note on FaceBook concerning his substance abuse problems. As Pete noted, this is a guy you really want to pull for.
Unlike in recent years where the defense got progressively better over the course of the season, this team started off strong out of the box. Pete is also looking forward to watching Jamie Collins play in a Pats uniform once again. It should be a fun year!
