Over on the volleyball court, the Warriors improved to an impressive 7-1 with an out of league win against the Holliston Panthers. Next up will be Attleboro on Friday afternoon.
3. Are you Registered to Vote?
The Wrentham Town Clerk is asking residents who have not returned their 2012 census and, in addition, voters who have not returned their reminder postcard to please do so soon. There are presently 1016 inactive voters in town. Without being activated, a voter will be standing in line at the State Election on November 6, 2012, to fill out paperwork to affirm his residence. The inactive voter will be required to show an ID. We expect the election to be very busy and by reducing the number of inactive voters, all voters will have less wait time at the polls.
If you cannot locate your census or reminder postcard, please stop by the Town Clerk’s office to update your information.
4. Wrentham Public Health Nurses Clinic
The Wrentham Public Health Nurses will hold the first of two flu clinics for Wrentham residents today at the Wrentham Senior Center from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

A second clinic will be held on October 3 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
