Wounded Warrior Fit Club

Longmeadow Veterans’ Services is proud to host the Wounded Warrior Fit Club. This Fit Club offers free fitness classes and nutritional tips to veterans, the residents of Longmeadow, and its surrounding communities. The group meets every Sunday morning at 9:00am at the Greenwood Community Center. No membership fee is required and all fitness levels are welcome.

The Longmeadow Wounded Warrior Fit Club is a proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and the group, in conjunction with the Town of Longmeadow’s Department of Veterans’ Services, plan on raising $10,000+ for the WWP, and presenting the donation to the WWP at the Town of Longmeadow’s 5K run/walk and Veterans’ Day ceremony in November, 2014.

The hope is to raise the $10,000+ through donations from our workout participants; the sale of WWP/Longmeadow Fit Club T-shirts at our Fit Club workouts and various events; and sponsorships.

If you have any questions please contact Anthony Lawrence at the Department of Veterans’ Services. 413-565-4150.

 

Data Collection ongoing for Measure & List:

As a quality control measure, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue requires cities and towns to inspect all property over a 9 year cycle.  This process began in 2013 and will continue into the spring of 2014.

A data collector from KRT Appraisal (Josh or Chris) who visits your home will ask to inspect the interior and exterior of your home.  Accurate information is necessary to assure fair and equitable assessed values.

Each data collector will have a photo ID and is listed with the Longmeadow Police and Assessors’ Office.

If you are not home when the data collector visits, a letter will be sent in the spring asking that you call to arrange an inspection.

Your cooperation with this process is appreciated.  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Assessors’ Office at (413) 565-4115.
