        Dave and Mike out on the course...

        On June 12, 2014 the North Bristol County Association of REALTORS held its' 11th Annual golf tournament. The weather was beautiful and it was a fun filled day out on the course! We had 72 golfers, a nice meal, and lots of raffle items to give away afterwards! Most importantly, we were able to raise some money that will be distributed to many deserving charities and organizations throughout greater Taunton. We also collected several baskets of food and some cash that we were able to donate to the Raynham Food Pantry.

        A big thank you goes out to our golfers, hole sponsors and those who donated items for our raffles and live auction. As Chairman of the RCS, I want to personally thank the other members of the committee for their time and effort in making this successful event possible. Members include, Delores Kenney, Dave Curtis, Jesse Paquette, Dan LeBrun, Jennifer Oldfield, Vicky Faunce, Marty Desjardins, Kelley Marie, Kim Thomas and Diane Blais. Thanks to all for another job well done!!!

        4th of July fireworks displays in the Greater Taunton area and Southeastern Mass

        by Mike Ballow

        If you're looking to see some fireworks in the Greater Taunton area/Southeastern Mass this 4th of July, you'll have to get in the car and drive - especially if you're a resident of Taunton. In the Taunton Gazettelast week it was reported that "Taunton will not hold Fourth of July Fireworks, Kiddies Day Carnival this year." In the article, Mayor Hoye was quoted as saying that it was a matter of logistics. Basically, they feel that they don't have an appropriate site to accommodate a fireworks display. I did not attend the 2011 fireworks display in Taunton so I can't speak to what happened last year. Based on the last fireworks display that I did see in Taunton, I'd most certainly agree that logistics were an issue. That year, I stood and watched from across the street from the Silver City Galleria mall. It was awful. We could barely see the fireworks from in between the trees and power lines.When I was a child growing up in Taunton, the fireworks were always held at Taunton High School and there was always a Kiddies Day!

        Happy 4th from Ballow and Hutchinson Realty Group, Inc!

        Below is a list of times and places where you can go to see some 4th of July fireworks in 2012. If you go to any of these events, have a fun time and give us a review of your evening. How was the crowd? How were the fireworks? Would you go again? We'll put the names of the people who send us a review into a drawing to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Frates Drive - In. Reviews can be emailed to me at michael.ballow@ballowandhutchinson.com. Deadline for submission is 7/11/12. The winner will be announced and notified on 7/12/12.

        Have a safe and happy 4th!

        On June 14, 2012 the RCS held its 9th Annual golf tournament at The Back Nine Club in Lakeville. We had 88 golfers who pre-registered for the event and everyone had a fun day out on the course. The winning foursome was Jackie Lawrence, Paul Faurisi, Steve George, and Wilkey. GolferPatricia Lorizio had a great start to her day when shehad a hole in one on the 7thhole! This particular hole also happened to be a closest to the pin hole so Patriciaeasily won that prize.

        Team Ballow and Hutchinson at the 9th Annual RCS Golf Tournament!

        After the round of golf, there were some auctions held and raffle prizes were given out to the lucky ticket holders. We also had an Italian buffet and some desserts to round out the day. In the end, our committee was able to raise more money than ever before. All of the monies raised will be allocated for distribution at our 9/27/2012 meeting.

        As the Chairman for the RCS, Id like to say thank you to all of the golfers, hole sponsors, and individuals/companies that donated items for our raffles and auctions. Id also like to thank the Taunton Daily Gazette, The Real Estate Book, and The House Hunters Handbook for running adsto help spread the word about our golf tournament.

        Also, deserving a HUGE round of applause are the members of the RCS who donate their time and energy to making sure that we cover all of the bases to hold such a successful tournament. If you see any of these people around town, thank them for a job well done! Members of this years committee include Joan DeCosta, Diane Blais, Phyllis Mueller, Delores Kenney, Marty Desjardins, Jennier Oldfield, Vicky Faunce, Sue Schmidt, Dan Gouveia, Dave Curtis, Bonnie Stiner, Teri Nardini, Kelly Marie, Jesse Paquette, Karen Barney, Donna McKenna, and Brian Dalryample.
