Sharon is a growing town of 16,000 people midway between Boston and Providence. An active network of civic organizations, shared appreciation of the diversity of its population and a cherished history make Sharon a vibrant community. The community spirit of Sharon residents is exemplified by a recent vote at Town Meeting. In May, 1993, townspeople of all ages voted overwhelmingly to support a school addition despite its burden on taxpayers. An elderly couple proudly told a representative of a local newspaper: "Tell them we voted for the override". The cohesiveness of this community is balanced by the town's openness to newcomers. Recently, a local Rabbi was one of the driving forces behind Sharon's welcome of the Islamic Center of New England which broke ground here for its new religious and social new headquarters. Moreover, Sharon has a strong commitment to METCO and a Sharon resident who is the local METCO coordinator is a strong candidate for Norfolk County teacher of the year. Years ago at the local railroad station, there was a sign, which has long since disappeared, which proudly proclaimed: "Sharon, a nice place to live because it's naturally beautiful". Though the sign is gone, Sharon remains a place of natural beauty. It is the site of Massachusetts Audubon Society's first wildlife sanctuary, 350 acre Lake Massapoag, and Borderland State Park. Despite recent development, the town has maintained through creative planning and zoning much of the green space and sparkle that made it a popular summer resort before World War II. However Sharon's deepest beauty and strength, residents feel, comes from the community spirit of its diverse population.
