On Monday, June 7, the Needham High School (MA) Class of 2010 graduated. Due to time and space constraints a limited number of photographs are published. Going through my files I decided to make a short multi-media presentation of the event mixing a few of the published photos with some, I liked, but that did not make publication. The skies were threatening. I felt a few rain drops but graduation went on without a hitch and with a toss of their caps the Class of 2010 was on their way

According to the Sherborn Historical Society "Richard Smart was a Civil War veteran and carpenter. He had been a resident of Brighton (MA) prior to moving to Sherborn. Before Smart built the house there, the lot had been owned by the Flaggs across the street and divided into three lots by stonewalls." On Tuesday, June 22, the Richard Smart house was demolished. Built as a Victorian, renovations in the 1960s included the "front bay and piazzas removed and the front colonialized." The property situated next to town hall comprises about 2.5 acres and was acquired, by the town, for about $500,000.

This is a 1935 Stout Scarab there were 9 built and only 5 are known to have survived. These cars are considered by some to be the first mini-van. This car is owned by the Detroit Historical Society and is one of many cars on display as part of the current exhibit "Curve Appeal" at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Massachusetts.
