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

"Rom’s Restaurant in Sturbridge has closed, according to Romaldo Roscioli, who with other members of the Roscioli family owned the place. Rom’s was in business for 56 years, according to a press release.
The release also reported that Romaldo’s at the Hearthstone, Route 20, Sturbridge, would open later in the fall. Romaldo’s reportedly will feature a menu similar to Rom’s.
Romaldo Roscioli said he could not comment on the closing of Rom’s or the opening of the new business."
