With so many limitations on activities caused by the pandemic, some people have looked for alternative ways to employ themselves this summer. Here are how two Southborough teens and one town native are promoting new services.

Big Time Wash

Big Time Wash (contributed)Southborough’s Nick Poon and Andrew Hadden, rising seniors at Algonquin, launched a special car detailing service. Poon was set to serve as a camp counselor for the Town this summer. When camp was cancelled, he sought another way to make money this summer. He partnered up with his friend to open Big Time Wash.

The duo are offering to come to your driveway to wash and detail your cars. The service is $50 for a sedan or hatchback or $70 for an SUV or van. A second vehicle is $20 off. You can open their flyer here. To book an appointment, email 

KD’s Club

Korey Dropkin, a Southborough native has launched KD’s Club “a first-of-its kind virtual training program for junior curlers.” His press release explains: 

KD's ClubYoungBucks skip and 2022 U.S. Olympic hopeful Korey Dropkin announced today the launch of “KD’s Club,” a first-of-its kind virtual training program for junior curlers.

Designed to teach junior players an array of skills both on and off the ice, KD’s Club kicks off by featuring three identical, six-week virtual divisions focused on dryland conditioning. . .

[One] program will be open to all junior U.S. curlers, giving interested players from across the U.S. a chance to practice, learn and interface with Dropkin and guest professionals through weekly Zoom group instruction.

Passionate about the gym and physical fitness, Dropkin has been active locally in the greater Duluth area working with the Duluth Curling Club’s Junior Program, while also conducting private clinics across the country. The Southborough, Mass., native says the creation of KD’s Club provides him with an outlet to give back to the sport while helping promote a healthy lifestyle for kids. 

“This summer I had reservations with the Denver Curling Club and the GNCC Junior Program to host Summer Curling Camps. With the events of COVID-19, these ended up getting canceled,” Dropkin said. “That was a huge bummer, so I really wanted to put together something for these kids, and all juniors throughout the U.S. Junior curlers are the future of our sport and deserve to have access to learning opportunities like this. That’s a major part of what inspired the initiation of KD’s Club.”

The overall mission of KD’s Club is to provide a supporting back-bone for youth curling around the country, to promote healthy habits, help young players build a solid fitness foundation, and open a networking space for juniors to connect and interact. Dropkin plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from KD’s Club back to local youth curling programs to assist with different competition costs.

Dropkin also plans to include weekly guest speakers from the USA Curling Men’s & Women’s High-Performance Programs as well as top-ranked curlers from around the World. . .

Registration is open through Friday, August 7th. The program runs Tuesdays – August 11, 18, 25, Sept 1, 8, 15 at 7:00 pm (6 pm CST), and costs $99. For more details, click here.
