Important Announcements

Town Meeting May 1 & 2 and the future of Gavin's Pond!

Dear Parents,

We need your support at the Town Meeting on May 1 and May 2, 2017.  The meeting starts at 7:00 pm.  The last article in the warrant, Article 28, proposes to negatively impact the current and future use of the Gavin's Pond soccer fields.  The proposed article will place the entire 63 acre parcel under conservation commission control except for the 6.3 acres that include the soccer fields and parking lots.  This move will severely limit our ability to manage the fields, rotate fields, and develop new fields.  Our player enrollment has been growing over the past several years and the need for new fields is evident not only for soccer but for lacrosse and high school sports.  Please vote NO on Article 28.  

Note:  Article 28 is the last item in the town warrant.  While the town meeting begins at 7:00 pm on Monday May 1 given the number of articles to be discussed the meeting may well continue on Tuesday.  We suggest you may want to monitor the town meeting progress on Sharon Cable TV and gauge when Article 28 will be discussed.

Thank you,

Sharon Soccer Association
