Choices, Easy and Hard, Abound By Gregory T. Federspiel
Choices – we make them daily in our personal lives, at work and in the running of our communities.Some choices are easy – I’ll always opt for a sail if I have the opportunity.Others, of course, are much harder, especially when there are competing needs, as so often the case in our community-wide decisions.

Community Spirit is Alive and Well
By Gregory T. Federspiel
The successful COVID vaccination clinic held this past Saturday in the Parish Hall of Sacred Heart Church was a terrific example of the community coming together to help our seniors. A strong showing from community members volunteering to assist combined with the generosity of the Church to make the Parish Hall available, the organizational skills of Nancy Hammond, our Council on Aging Director, and Ellen Lufkin, Our Board of Health Administrator, and the partnership with Conley’s Drug Store made it possible to vaccinate nearly 300 residents, including some of our neighbors in Essex. A repeat of the event will take place on March 6 for people to receive their second dose. I was pleased with how smoothly the event went thanks to the many helping hands and humbled by the many words of thanks recipients expressed. It was great to be a part of an event that successfully served our seniors over 75.
