Thanks to Donors, Mendon’s Town Beach Will Be Open this Summer

Thanks to the financial generosity of some local folks and the determination of a local real estate businessman, Mendon's Town Beach will be open for the summer.

Due to drastic budget cuts in the town's operating budget, the Parks Department was forced to cut $10,000 of its budget resulting in the Parks Commissioners having to make the difficult choice of closing down the beach. According to Parks Commissioner Joe Flaherty, because the beach is typically open for just two months out of the year, its closing would affect the least amount of people.

However, upon hearing this, Gary Smith, a life-long resident of Mendon and owner of Mendon Area Real Estate, who spent his summers at the Town Beach as a youngster, raised half the funding needed through anonymous donations. The other half of the funding was generously donated by Kevin Meehan, owner of Imperial Cars. When Meehan heard about the Town Beach closing, he approached the Board of Selectmen about making a contribution to help. Now, the donations must be approved by the Board during its June 15 meeting. If all goes accordingly, the Town Beach will open on June 25 with no admission charges for anyone. The Beach will most likely be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
