5. A notice from the Keep Mansfield Beautiful Committee: Check out the beautiful new park benches (2 of them) at Fulton's Pond. Another was installed at the playground at the Plymouth Street fields. These benches were paid for by a grant from Covidien and were expertly installed by Mansfield's own DPW. Great job all around!
