Parade starts at 9:30am at the Library, goes through town and ends at the Walter J. Dempsey gazebo.
It seems that, every year, Norwood Day continues to grow in both attendance and a greater variety of activities for its residents. This year we reached an estimated 16,000 people and provided a new Interactive Van- Games 2 Go.
The success of Norwood Day would not be possible without the continuous support from our business community who share our vision. A big “Thank You” to the Town Square Diner (who, every year, generously donates a hearty breakfast to start us off), the Norwood Bank, Chestnut Hill Realty, Ellis Nursing Home, Lustra Cleaners, Dedham Savings, Gillooly Funeral Home, Republic Plumbing.
We would also like to thank the Norwood Town Departments who always help on Norwood Day: Department of Public Works, Police Department, Fire Department, Light Department, School Department, Engineering Department, REACT, and the Recreation Department.
In addition, we would like to thank all those who helped make Norwood Day the great day it has become: Committee Members and Volunteers-Linda Berger, Dan Burns, Jack Chamberlain, Martha Colamaria, Bernie Cooper, Dolores Elias, Mike Lyons, Lee Kennedy, Joe Greeley, Kevin McDonough, Rick Morison, Ernie Paciorkowski, Paula Pelaggi, Linda Rau, Reggie Regan, Jean Taylor, Howard Weinstein, Jim Nassif, Mary and Mary Kate Taggart, Dorothy Prevoir, Joe Malinn, Joanne Gleason, Linda Reilly, the Freshmen Football Team who helped us to set up early in the morning, and the boys J.V.

ANNE T. LYDON VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD
The spirit of Norwood has always been its volunteers who come and share their time, labor, and finances to make Norwood a better place to call home, and enhance the quality of life for its residents.
No one epitomized volunteerism as Anne Lydon did.She was the first to raise her hand and volunteer for so many groups, charities, and town activities.It is with this thought in mind that the Norwood Day Committee will honor the Volunteer of the Year.
Anyone interested in nominating a Volunteer of the Year may do so by dropping off the nominee’s name and a paragraph bio of his/her services to Norwood at the Civic Center, or you can go on our website and also do the same (norwoodma.gov)
