You Know You're From Natick When...
Natick natives, tell us what makes you stand out from the folks who live here, but aren't from here.
A few months ago, groups popped up all over Facebook, attracting residents who could relate to each other when reading a variety of "facts" about people from specific cities and towns.
Most commonly known as "You Know You're From (City/Town) When..," the groups, including one for Natick, have evolved into a forum for natives and residents to share town-specific information and announcements. For example, Natick High's class of 1985 is using it to highlight the sale of Redmen t-shirts.
So, for fun, we asked readers on the Natick Patch Facebook page to fill in the blank: how do you know you're from Natick? We're sharing with you a few of the answers; add your own in the comments!
From Angela C.: If you still call The Natick Collection, The mall.
From Elizabeth F.: When you still wear the t-shirt, 'Natick Redmen.'
From Sandy A.: If you can see Doug Flutie and wave without asking for an autograph.
From Martin L.: You remember buying penny candy from Tilly or Lucy.
From Elizabeth F.: When you still buy from Tilly & Salvy's Bacon Street Farm.
