Town Talk

Golfers, not sailors

This week's sailing lesson program for kids on Pomps Pond this week was canceled as not enough kids signed up. Recreation Director Kim Stamas said the program usually runs two or three times a week. This year, a full week program cost $175 and was offered but seems to have gone over like an anchor stuck in a sandbar. Stamas said the two or three times a week program will return next summer.

Stamas was quick to point out that soccer and golf camps were held this week for plenty of kids. In fact, the golf camp, held at Sarkisian's, was full months ago and continues to be one of the most popular summer camps for kids run by the town.

An Orange Leaf grower

Somerville appears to be the next stop for Dave Pierre of Andover. The owner of the Park Street Orange Leaf frozen yogurt shop plans to open his fourth Orange Leaf franchise in that city.

Orange Leaf in downtown Andover was his first and late-night lines continue to be long. Newburyport and Salem, Mass. shops are also open. While Pierre could not be reached, a worker in Andover said the trio of Orange Leafs open so far are "all Dave's and Somerville is next."
