Spotlight of the week, Dudley, Massachusetts We're here to help communities like Dudley!

Dudley, Massachusetts 01571

Dudley was incorporated in 1732, but originally settled in 1714. Dudley gets it's name from Paul and William Dudley. Dudley is located on the border of Connecticut

Today, Dudley is home to many open fields and farms. According to the Town website, Dudley is a "green" community. Dudley has earned the "Green Community" designation. They aim to reduce energy costs day to day! 

85 births have been recorded in Dudley! The most popular names being Liam and adorable! 

In 1887, the West Dudley Cooperative Creamery was established and by 1905 there were 31 dairy farms within the town! These dairy farms and the creamery provided milk and other dairy products for the local area. 

Currently the population is 11,682 and is home to many historical landmarks and buildings. Dudley is home to Nichols College which was founded in 1815! One of the most popular historic places in Dudley is the Black Tavern. This is the only building in the town that is on the U.S. Department of the Interiors National Register of Historic Buildings. 

The original building was built in 1804 and was originally known as Healy's Inn. Guests and residents of the town began calling it the Black Tavern because the founder, Hezekiah Healy painted the building black. Placed right on the route from Boston to Hartford, it was the perfect spot! These days, the Dudley Elementary School has been successful in raising money to help restore the barn at the Tavern! They host events such as weddings, meetings etc.

Town Spotlight! Millville, MA

6/4/2020 (Permalink)

Spotlight of the week, Millville Massachusetts We're glad to be able to serve towns like Millville and surrounding areas!

Millville, MA, 01529

Millville is a little town nestled in the Blackstone Valley along the Rhode Island border. According to, Millville was settled in 1662, but is really Massachusetts' "youngest town" because the town was not incorporated util 1916 after people of the town wanted to separate from Blackstone. 

Millville is home to the only intact lock from the Blackstone Canal. These locks allowed boats to travel through the canal even when the elevation changed. You would enter the lock, allow it to fill up, then exit out the other side where the water would be level. 

In the 1800's the Blackstone Canal provided a way of transporting goods. Following World War II and the manufacturing of goods moving to the south, the Town's mills started to decline. 

Fun Fact!! Charles Leo (Gabby) Hartnett, who was born in Woonsocket, RI, eventually growing up in Millville, went on to play for the Chicago Cubs and the New York Giants!

According to the 2019 Census, Millville's population was 3,242. Definitely lower than its neighboring areas like Uxbridge, Blackstone, and Rhode Island city of Woonsocket. 

If you were to take a walk around Millville today, you'd find ruins of old mill foundations and sections of unused railroad that was once used to transport goods. In the town's beginnings, it was a very important piece of transportation and commerce in the Blackstone Valley during the Industrial Revolution.

Town Spotlight! Sutton, MA

5/27/2020 (Permalink)

In 1704, Edward Pratt was granted an 8 square mile section of land, which we now know as Sutton!

There were three families that first settled in Sutton were the Marsh family, Johnson family, and the Carriel brothers. In 1717, a huge snow storm hit Sutton and buried the cabins!

Benjamin Marsh acted as a selectman, town moderator, and established the First Baptist Church of Sutton and served as pastor of the church until 1775.

Today, Sutton lies in the heart of the Blackstone Valley, very close to our neighbors in Rhode Island. Sutton has five villages within the town:

  • Sutton Center
  • Manchaug
  • Wilkinsonville
  • West Sutton
  • South Sutton

As of 2018, the population was 9,385. Much less than the population of our friends in Uxbridge and Southbridge. Today, Sutton is home to retail and manufacturing industries. Unified2, Polyvinyl Films, and Villancourt Folk Art are just a few places that call Sutton home.

The Sutton police department became a full-time agency in 1968, according to () The department consists of 15 full time officers, 1 part time officer, 5 special officers, 4 full time dispatchers, 4 part time dispatchers, and 1 secretary. Sutton PD is responsible for 140 miles of roadway.

Town Spotlight! Southbridge, MA

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

Welcome to part two of our 'Spotlight Series'! This week, we'll discuss the town of Southbridge, MA! 

Southbridge, as you may know, is located in Worcester County, MA. As of July 2018, the population was 16,931. The town was incorporated in the winter of 1816. Before becoming incorporated, the Nipmuck and Mohegan tribes lived in Southbridge. 

Fun fact! Southbridge is one of the 14 municipalities in the state of Massachusetts that are technically cities, but remain to have 'The town of..." in their name. 

With water power coming from the Quinebaug River, Southbridge became a hub for saw and gristmills (flour or corn mill) in the 18th century, when the 19th century came around, textile mills started to take over the town! 

Southbridge has earned the title "Eye of the Commonwealth" (of Massachusetts" due to their long running history of making optical products! The American Optical Company was founded in 1826 in Southbridge, prior to this, most frames and lenses had to be imported from Europe. William Beecher from Connecticut traveled to Southbridge to begin a life in the jewelry trade. Then, one day, he got a pair of awful eyeglasses. He thought to himself "I can do this better!" then he got to work, and what we now know as the American Optical Company soon began, and for a lack of better words, exploded!! By 1905, they were already employing 2,000 people! 

By the 1960's, Southbridge had a movie theater, an airport, and an AM radio station! 

Today, the Town of Southbridge has a (semi) brand new middle/high school, one private catholic school, 2 elementary schools, a fully functional police and fire department, and a hospital! If you're into nature and hiking, Southbridge is home to some beautiful parks, conservation areas, and trails!

Town Spotlight! Uxbridge, MA

5/6/2020 (Permalink)

This is our very first installment of our 'Spotlight Series'! Check back in every week for a new city/town spotlight blog! 

Now, let's get into the history! 

Uxbridge, MA was incorporated in 1727! It quickly became a part of one of the first industrialized regions in the US. 

In the beginning, Uxbridge was a hub of textile mills during the Industrial Revolution. The first United States Air Force dress uniform was called "Uxbridge Blue" after the Bachman-Uxbrige Worsted Company! Pretty cool fact! 

If you're from Uxbridge, you might already know this, but, did you know that the first woman who legally voted, did so in Uxbridge!? Her name is Lyida Taft. She was allowed to vote at a few town meeting, her voting came about after the death of her husband and son, who were allowed to vote at the time. The townspeople voted to allow her to vote in place of her son and husband in 1756. 

In 1732, it was voted to have a schoolmaster in each part of town, resulting in 13 one-room school houses by the end of 1760. 

The towns police work dates back to the beginning days when Uxbridge separated from Mendon in 1727. In 1922, the first full time patrolman was hired, his name was William H. Smith. 

Today Uxbridge is home to a wonderful selection of historic land, parks, and buildings and is buzzing with history!

Northbridge Mass Adjusting to working from home

4/10/2020 (Permalink)

Woman working on laptop in bedroom with children jumping on the bed Photo:

Working from home can be a huge change for someone who has never done it before. Since a lot of you are new to working from home (including a few of us here at SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County) we figured why not help everybody out a bit and make a helpful blog post about being successful working from home!!

1) Communication is key! Stay in touch with your colleagues/boss. Send email updates every so often, maybe each hour with a list of things you've accomplished. This will also help keep you on track and accountable! 

Check in with your managers/boss. Maybe every hour! Prove that you're engaged with your work. Even though you're at home, give work all your attention just as you would in the office! Checking in gives your boss/es confirmation that you are working and helps keep you on track! 

2) Have a set work space away from distractions (like Netflix) Being in a separate room can help you maintain that productiveness you may have in the office. Especially if you have kids and significant others at home now. If you can't separate due to children (and significant others) make sure you communicate expectations for them for the day.  

      School work, chores, set a schedule and boundaries!! 

2a) Speaking of boundaries, there needs to be a line between relaxing and working areas. Don't work from the couch! Or your bed. This gives you a chance to turn on Netflix or your favorite show on TV. You might say you won't but you will get sucked in! 

3) Follow a routine, make a schedule. Even though you're home, your commute to the office is a little less, you should still get up at the same time as you would on a normal day, get dressed, make your coffee and get working!  

      Sticking to a routine will make this transition to working at home a bit easier on your body and mind. Make time for breaks, go for a walk around the yard, stretch your legs and body. Give your eyes a break from the screen too! 

4) While you're in the office, I'm sure you aren't on YouTube, browsing Facebook or Twitter at your desk. Stick to that at home! Don't let yourself get distracted by social media, Candy Crush or other things on your phone. 

Working from home means you have to be independent, responsible and manage to keep yourself on task all day! It will probably take a bit of getting used to, but making a schedule can help!! 

Make set time blocks for you to take a "browsing break" Not that we're condoning browsing social media at work, but if you do, only do it during a set time frame for a set amount of time! 

We know it's a tough transition from the office to the home office, or dinner table. We're all in this together! Working from home is helping to flatten the curve and stop the spread of coronavirus! 

If you need cleanup of your commercial or reddientail property with flooded basement, broken pipes and other disaster cleanups and we will be your master of service

Second - Degree: Affects the outer and second layer of skin. They can cause pain, swelling, blistering, and redness

Third - Degree: Affects the outer, second, and deep layers of skin. Sometimes they are referred to as "full thickness burns" The skin will appear white, charred, or burned skin. There will be little to no sensation because the nerve endings will be damaged.

- Be sure cords are not frayed 

- Keep children out of the kitchen area while cooking

Shark Warning! - Orleans, MA

8/20/2019 (Permalink)

There have been multiple sightings of sharks this summer so far, which sparks great concern over swimming at the beach and other marine activities like boating or sailing. These sightings have caused two Massachusetts beaches to close its swimming. The first sighting of a shark was in Orleans at Nauset Beach. Another shark was spotted near Marconi Beach.

Two people were attacked by sharks last year, resulting in one death, so surveillance and caution is increased for this summer. Always make sure to not go too far out where its difficult to make it back to shore. Use caution and look out for your loved ones who are swimming too.

Nate Lashley's Story & Rocket Mortgage Classic Triumph!

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County is a Proud Sponsor of the PGA Tour

Nate Lashley is a 36 year old pro American golfer who was had his fair share of adversity in his life. He started golfing at an early age with the support and help from his loving parents. 

His life would change forever after the 2004 University of Arizona regional match in Oregon. After seeing his parents and college sweetheart, Leslie, after his match Nate would get the horrible news that every son and boyfriend fears. Days after, after worrying about his families whereabouts, they found the bodies of his dad, mom, and girlfriend. They had been in a plane crash near Wyoming. 

After this, he could not be present in the game with everything going on. He chose to try something else, so he began working in real estate by 2012. However, shortly thereafter he realized that he wanted to golf, and that it came naturally to him. He recently won his first match as an alternate in the PGA Golf Tour. His story is inspiring for all of us who have overcome adversity and make it to the other side.

SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County has been a proud partner of the PGA Tour since 2014.

Educate Children about Fire

6/22/2016 (Permalink)

The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) urges parents to educate their children on the many dangers of playing with fire in an effort to prevent child injuries and fatalities.

Compiled into a short list, these tips advise parents to:

  1. Keep matches and lighters in a secured drawer or cabinet.
  2. Have your children tell you when they find matches and lighters.
  3. Develop a home fire escape plan, practice it with your children and designate a meeting place outside.
  4. Supervise young children closely. Do not leave them along even for short periods of time.
  5. Take the mystery out of fire by teaching children that fire is a tool, not a toy.
  6. Teach children the nature of fire. It is FAST, HOT, DARK, and DEADLY!
  7. Demonstrate how to stop, drop to the ground and roll if their clothes catch fire.
  8. Show children how to crawl low on the floor, below the smoke, to get out of the house and stay out in the case of a fire.
  9. Teach children not to hide from firefighters, but to get out quickly and call for help.

At SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County, we urge each and every parent to advise their children about these dangers. Should a situation involving fire occur in the future, please do not hesitate to give us a call and remember, SAFETY is the #1 most important factor to consider once a fire occurs.
