Community Rallies for Tim

Just about a year ago, Tim Gemelli started experiencing weakness in his right hand. It was probably from throwing too many pitches while coaching his children’s teams over the years he thought. Gemelli always threw the ball hard, even to the young players. But the weakness in the hand wasn’t getting better.

It's not easy being green and in Massachusetts it's even harder. Only 123 out of 351 cities and towns are dubbed a "Green Community" by the Commonwealth and Wrentham isn't one.
