1st Annual Fun Friendly Round Robin Easton Pickleball Tournament this Friday 9/28/2018

8:30 AM Union Villa Courts
The tournament would work like this:
NO need to sign up just show up!.
Names will be pulled from a hat to determine teams.(if teams are too lop sided we can adjust them). No Ellen you can not be my partner!
Games will be played to 7 points to keep play moving.
Teams play until they have been defeated twice.(double elimination)
This will play out until two teams are left and they will play a regular 11 point game for the Easton PickleBall Championship!  
There will be a small trophy ceremony followed by congratulations, cheers and trash talking from teams and players!
This is all for fun and I think we have a nice diverse group of players that this will be a good time for all.

Why billionaires Bill and Melinda Gates like to play ‘a crazy game called pickleball’ for fun

Bill and Melinda Gates are busy: The husband and wife billionaire philanthropists are working to advance the U.S. education system, improve healthcare conditions around the globe, and empower women, all while raising three children.

But that doesn’t mean they don’t have fun.

“We like to watch movies, we go out to movies together, we kayak together, we play a crazy game called pickleball,” Melinda Gates told CNBC…


Mrs. Elizabeth Ames

 A Truly Remarkable Person!
by Hazel Varella

Soon after we moved to Easton in 1945, Mrs. Frothingham, for whom my father worked, wanted my mother and me to meet a person whom she greatly respected, Mrs. David Ames.  Several months later she called us to come to her home “Wayside” to meet her.  Mrs. Frothingham was very proud of having her and the children living with her for a brief time in the 1940’S…

Target child abandonment charge

A 27-YEAR-OLD WOMAN FROM ACTON, MAINE was charged with Abandonment/Endangerment of a Child. She is scheduled to  appear in Taunton District Court at a later date. Her identity is being withheld to protect the identification of the victim in this case.
At approximately 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, the Easton Police Department responded to Target, 41 Robert Drive, after receiving a call about a baby that was discovered in the store parking lot in a carriage by himself.
The reporting party was a customer of the store and stayed with the baby until officers arrived.
The child did not appear to be injured and was evaluated by members of the Easton Fire Department before being transported by ambulance to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton for an evaluation.
While investigating the incident, Easton Police received a call at approximately 2 p.m. from a male party reporting that the child had been left behind in the parking lot accidentally. The caller was with the CHILD’S MOTHER in Plymouth and said they were going to head back to Easton.
In subsequently speaking with detectives, the CHILD’S MOTHER said that after leaving Target she returned to her vehicle, along with three friends, and believed that one of her friends had secured her son in his rear-facing car seat. She then traveled to Plymouth in her vehicle, while her friends left in a separate vehicle. Upon arriving in Plymouth, the CHILD’S MOTHER realized that her son was not in the car seat.
The Easton Police Department notified the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, which launched its own investigation. In coordination with the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, DCF granted custody of the child to the MOTHER later that evening.
