Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

Goodbye Honey Dew Donuts

On September 19th the Honey Dew Donuts shop at the XtraMart on Route 20 will be no more. Dunkin' Donuts has made a higher offer for the lease that is about to expire. Word has it they will not be keeping any of the Honey Dew staff on.

We sure need three Dunkin' Donuts in this town of 8000. The more the better.

I just hope they accept my application for a store in my garage. We need a Dunkin's to take care of the folks on the first mile or so of Route 148.

  1. I guess this is one of those "money talks" situations.
