Chronicle's "How to Get Out Of Town While Social Distancing"
Thinking about renting an RV? The New England RV Dealers Association can offer some guidance, as does Fuller RV in Boylston. Meanwhile, camp goers are glamping away at Normandy Farms in Foxboro.

MACO Members Bob Zagami, Sheri Fuller, and Kristine Daniels spotlight camping as THE way to vacation in 2020!
Mobile Dance Party!
Even though we can't have a dance in the lodge this summer doesn't mean that we can't bring the dance party to your campsite!

Check our activity schedule for mobile dance parties and email your song requests with your site number.
Corn Hole It Is!
In our last newsletter we conducted a survey to determine your preference and the results are in...corn hole wins!
We are designing a recreation area near the horseshoe pits that will include both Bocce and Corn Hole, but we wanted to know your preference so we could design the area accordingly. Thanks for your feedback!
Family RVing Magazine
Normandy Farms was featured in Family RVing! Check out the article on "The Idea of Continuing a Family Legacy".
Betsey is a super cute 11 month old Labrador mix who is looking for her forever home. This sweet girl has a submissive personality but is outgoing and a very happy girl. Betsey does great with other dogs and would not mind having a canine sibling in her new home. Her wish list for a new home is very simple, a fenced yard, lots of toys, humans who absolutely love her and if it’s not to much to ask humans that are active and enjoy outdoor activities that will include her. Betsey is a great dog and will make one lucky family very happy.

  • World War II Veterans Memorial Trail in Mansfield – At 1.5 miles asphalt trail surface, the World War II Veterans Memorial Trail opened in Mansfield in 2004 after several decades of advocacy by local rail-trail supporters. The trail rests on an abandoned corridor once served by the Old Colony Railroad. During World War II, the railroad transported American soldiers bound for Taunton’s Camp Myles Standish along the line in immediate advance of their departure to Europe. In the present day, the paved trail links the edge of Mansfield’s downtown with the city’s municipal airport. Most of the route is through a dense grove of trees. At the northern end of the trail, a short trip on Old Colony Road—also built on the former rail corridor—leads directly to Mansfield’s MBTA commuter rail station.
