Privacy Fence Kit in Newton, MA

According to a 2021 study by the International Casual Furnishings Association, nearly 90% of Americans say that having an outdoor space to enjoy as part of their home is more important than ever. In fact, demand for outdoor living spaces has been on the rise for years, due largely to pandemic conditions and the stay-at-home movement. Often, these outdoor living spaces include privacy fences, which provide both home and business owners with protection, privacy, safety, and even noise cancelation.

As a fencing contractor, you probably already know how popular privacy fences have become. You also know that building and maintaining those privacy fences are of utmost importance. After all, craftsmanship still matters these days. Unfortunately, building a gate or decorative fence from the ground up is easier said than done. One wrong mistake or even an incorrect piece of hardware can affect customer satisfaction. With so much on the line, many contractors are now using custom fence pieces and fence kits to serve their clients with high-quality, long-lasting privacy fences.

When it comes to the best privacy fence kit in Newton, few can compete with Perimtec products. Unlike many fencing companies, we provide a unique approach to fencing that allows you to design without limitations. Our innovative fencing systems enable you to customize the fence's height, width, frame color, infill material, direction of infill material, and gate kit combinations. As a result, you get fencing that perfectly matches your architectural design and landscaping vision while ensuring the beauty and durability you expect from Perimte fences and gates.

  • Backyard Gates
  • Privacy Gates
  • House Gates
  • Entryway Gates
  • Yard Gates
  • Side Yard Gates

Newton Resident Raises Money to Fight Statewide Food Insecurity

Jainie Winter, Community Contributor

On May 5, Ethan Diamondstein, of Newton, will step up for Project Bread’s 56th annual Walk for Hunger. He will be among over 3,500 participants, both in-person and virtual, to walk the 3-mile loop around the Boston Common or in their own neighborhoods. The one-day celebration will raise more than $1.3 million to support the leading statewide food security organization’s approach to permanently solve hunger in Massachusetts.

Beginning in 1969, as the first pledge walk in the nation, Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger brings together a diverse community dedicated to creating change. The one-day event is set for Sunday, May 5 at 9 a.m. on the Boston Common, and will feature family-friendly activities, programming and games. Project Bread works year-round across policy initiatives, programs, and hunger prevention measures to ensure food access for all children and families across the Commonwealth.

“Funds raised through the Walk for Hunger directly contributed to Project Bread’s work to successfully lead the Feed Kids Coalition in advocating for the passage of permanent Universal School Meals in Massachusetts last year,” says Erin McAleer, Project Bread’s CEO. “Our Walkers make a tangible difference in the lives of thousands of Massachusetts residents, but hunger is still a pervasive problem in our state with 1 in 6 households and 1 in 5 households with children currently facing food insecurity. Participating in Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger is one way we can all do something real to make sure our neighbors can access and afford the food they need.”

As a volunteer at the Newton Food Pantry, Ethan Diamondstein, 17, of Newton, has seen firsthand the impacts of hunger in his hometown. He started volunteering for the organization when he was in 5th grade. On Sunday, May 5, the now Newton South High School junior will lace up for the 7th consecutive year to participate in Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger as a member of the Newton Food Pantry Walk for Hunger team. Together, the team of 11 individuals will wear Newton Food Pantry shirts while walking the three-mile loop around Boston Common before Ethan continues on with his own 19-mile route. Diamondstein’s goal is to raise $2,200. To date, he has raised $11,000 for the cause.

“Food insecurity is one of the greatest problems in our society, and I admire Project Bread’s goal of fighting the issue through advocacy and policy work,” says Diamondstein. “Everyone deserves to have enough food and not worry about where their next meal is coming from. By walking, I can make a small contribution towards that goal.”

Money raised through the Walk for Hunger is critical to Project Bread’s statewide work for systemic change through the levers of policy, prevention, and partnerships to ensure people of all ages have reliable access to healthy food. In keeping with the community-spirit of the event, the Walk also provides a platform for organizations to fund the vital work they do for food security locally. In 2019, Project Bread launched a joint fundraising program, The Commonwealth, to uplift the work of like-minded organizations. In 2023, 34 nonprofits raised more than $160,000 to support their own programs.

“This year’s event will again be an accessible, 3-mile route, inviting people with mobility devices, strollers, young children and other needs to all participate with us in ending hunger in Massachusetts,” says McAleer. “We cannot wait to welcome the Massachusetts community – both new and returning – together on the Common while continuing to engage those across the country making strides in the fight against hunger locally.”

To register as a participant for Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger, or to support a walker or team with a donation, visit projectbread.org/walk. Donate directly to Diamondstein’s fundraiser at https://give.projectbread.org/.... There is no registration fee or fundraising minimum to participate, although a $250 minimum goal is suggested. Participants who raise $500 or more are recognized as Heart & Sole walkers and receive access to personalized fundraising support, exclusive event gear and invitations to events.

People experiencing food insecurity should call Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline (1-800-645-8333), which provides confidential, free assistance getting connected to a variety of food resources in 180 languages and for the hearing impaired. Counselors can pre-screen families and help them to apply for SNAP. Learn more at www.projectbread.org/get-help.

Grace Petrick Laces Up to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts

Jainie Winter, Community Contributor

NEWTON, Mass. – On April 15, Grace Petrick, 21, of Newton, will run in the Boston Marathon. She will lace up to raise money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts (BBBSEM), the state’s leading one-to-one mentoring program for youth.

In 2024, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts celebrates 75 years of service across the region. The nonprofit partners with families to provide children with one-to-one relationships with caring adult mentors who help them reach their fullest potential. With research and proven outcomes at its core, BBBSEM creates Big-Little matches based on shared interests, geography and personality and serves as a consistent resource for Bigs, Littles and their families. Children are paired with mentors across Eastern Massachusetts from the Merrimack Valley to Cape Cod and the Islands. Over the past seven decades, BBBSEM has supported more than 25,000 youth.

"I am running to support the BBBSEM community and for my Little, both of which have become so important to me in the past year.” Petrick has been matched with her Little, Sarah, for just over a year now. Feeling encouraged to join the program by her father, who was once a College Big himself, Petrick understood the importance of youth mentoring, which inspired her to join the on-campus club. Petrick encourages other students to join the BC Bigs program, saying “Bigs provides a community of service-oriented individuals who are all looking to make a positive impact on their community.”

Petrick is one of four Boston Marathon runners hitting the pavement and fundraising for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts this year. Her goal is to raise $3,000 to support the cause.

Just off I-95 in Newton, a watering hole that feels like rural Ireland

It’s no secret that the Boston area is home to countless Irish pubs, and there really is something for everyone out there.

in and around the city you can find old-school dive bars where pints and shots are the main draw, upscale restaurant-style pubs with inventive takes on Irish and various global cuisines, youth-oriented hotspots with nightlife including music and dancing, laid-back family-friendly places where the focus is on making everyone feel at home and traditional pubs of the type that you might find along a country road in the heart of the Emerald Isle.

There is one pub hidden away in the western suburbs of Boston that combines the best of the latter two categories. That’s helped make Dunn-Gaherin's Food and Spirits in Newton Upper Falls such a beloved spot for locals for many years now.

The city of Newton is basically a collection of villages that run the gamut from the quiet upper-class neighborhood of Waban to the bustling commercial hub of Newton Centre to the close-knit Italian-American community of Nonantum. Newton also has some old industrial areas within its city limits, including Newton Upper Falls, a well-preserved mill village along a particularly scenic section of the Charles River (walking trails lead to a gorge and waterfall here) that has some of the most interesting architecture in all of Newton.

Just east of the heart of the tiny downtown area of Newton Upper Falls is where you’ll find Dunn-Gaherin's, set among a mix of old and newer homes along a mostly residential street that eventually winds its way to Route 9.

The first thing you may notice about Dunn-Gaherin's is that the place looks exactly like some of the traditional Irish pubs found in Dublin and Galway, or, for that matter, the winding lanes well outside of those Irish cities. It is utterly charming, with its flower boxes in the windows, yellow side wall and outdoor string lights giving it a decidedly European feel.

The second thing you might notice is that the parking lot along the side wall is quite narrow, so much so that customers are required to back into the spaces, and during the warmer months last year, an outdoor patio was set up in the lot; it isn’t known if the setup will remain the same this year, but if it is, there is some street parking available and the patio makes up for the lack of parking, being a very nice spot when the weather is good.

Dunn-Gaherin's is every bit as traditional looking inside as it is on the outside, with the kind of warm and welcoming feel that make Irish pubs so popular.

PHOTOS: Dunn-Gaherin's Food and Spirits in Newton Upper Falls

Its front has a small U-shaped bar with high-top tables nearby. Beyond the bar area is a mix of high-tops, low-tops, booths and bench seats. The back area perhaps feels most like the classic pubs of Ireland, with its low ceiling, sconces that emit warm light, wooden booths, string lights, Irish flags, Guinness flags, wooden beams and memorabilia on the walls. The middle of the place has an almost churchlike feel, with a soaring wooden ceiling and windows way up top and a chandelier hanging from the ceiling. (Traditional Irish road signs only add to the pub’s aesthetic appeal.)

While some Irish pubs in and around Boston don’t offer a whole lot to eat, Dunn-Gaherin's puts as much focus on its food options as it does on its drink options. The menu is quite varied, with a mix of Irish fare, comfort food, pub grub and both classic American and New American food.

It may come as no surprise that the fish and chips is one of the most popular (and best) items and includes fresh haddock fillets, not overly greasy, that are served with fries and tartar sauce. Another beloved item here is one of the appetizers: the eggplant fries, which are topped with parmesan cheese and come with marinara sauce. Their mild and slightly meaty flavor may make you quickly forget about traditional fries.

Other apps that are worth looking at include some particularly meaty wings that can be ordered with an array of sauces, including buffalo, honey hot and garlic parmesan, and the basic chicken fingers are anything but basic, with a thick but non-greasy batter and are served with a pile of fries.

Several burgers are offered at Dunn-Gaherin's, including a delicious Irish burger with caramelized onions and Irish cheddar, while an overstuffed pastrami sandwich and an Irish grilled chicken sandwich (also with caramelized onions and Irish cheddar) top the handheld options.

One other entree in addition to the fish and chips needs to be pointed out, as the meatloaf is absolutely decadent – topped with a good amount of dark gravy, it can be served with mashed potatoes, which goes nicely with the gravy.

Being that Dunn-Gaherin's is an Irish pub, Guinness Stout is an obvious choice here (and they do a very good pour) as is a pint of Smithwick's or a bottle of Harp, but a number of great local and regional beers are served as well, including brews from Austin Street, Widowmaker, The Shed, Von Trapp, Mighty Squirrel, Wormtown, Allagash, Fiddlehead, Jack’s Abby, Lone Pine, Foundation, Mast Landing and Narragansett. The drinks menu also includes wine and cocktails, and Irish whiskeys are always an option, including a glass of the ever-popular Jameson.

Dunn-Gaherin's is the type of place where you might see young couples, retirees, groups of co-workers or families, solo diners at the bar, softball teams and construction workers to name a few, as the place is welcoming to all and has been so since opening back in the early 1990s. The fact that it is almost within sight of Route 128 makes it a pretty convenient stop for travelers, too, so if you’re looking to grab a bite to eat and a pint in a low-key Irish pub, this is one of the better options that you’ll find in the Greater Boston area.
