    Did you fill position? I am an amateur weather observer for 50 plus years. Originally from Dedham, then 30 years in town of Norfolk. I am retired mailman, so no fear of elements, except ground strikes. Please respond.

      We are currently set for staff but are looking to expand and are offering training to folks who would like the job if a position comes available. We do have positions available in administration if you are familiar with Quickbooks and that might interest you. Many of our staff and volunteers work in multiple departments. Please email or call 617-696-0562 if you are interested.
