SHARON — Recognizing the need to increase enrollment at Sharon Center School, and that the only way to do that is to attract families with young children to Sharon, a group of volunteers under the auspices of the Board of Education formed the Sharon Strategic Planning Task Force.

On Wednesday, April 12, at Town Hall, the group convened for the first time since dividing itself into three committees at its Jan. 25 meeting. In the interim, committees had worked on their assigned tasks, and now they were reporting their results to the task force as a whole.

Magic, miracles at Sharon Center play

SHARON – A tale as old as 1740, a song as old as 1991.

Bug Watch

Sharon resident Michelle Alfandari found this terrifying little bug on her bathroom floor last weekend and sent this photo to The Lakeville Journal, asking for help with identifying it.
Wendy Miller from the Audubon Center in Sharon responded and said it is “a pseudoscorpion, which is an arachnid (related to spiders.) These are not typically seen because they are so small. They do not harm humans, and they eat some larvae that could be pests to humans.”

Bird Watch

An extremely rare leucistic downy woodpecker was spotted in the Northwest Corner on Friday, March 10. A call was placed to the Audubon Center in Sharon, and Director Sean Grace immediately called talented avian photographer Alexander Kearney to see if he could get to the bird and photograph it.
The word leucistic is used to describe the bird’s extremely pale plumage, similar to when a human is albino.
Grace said it’s likely that the bird will remain in the area as a year-round resident.
