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

Daughter Amber and her Tantasqua classmate Brian Hrybyk are running the
Boston Marathon next month to raise money for Children's Hospital, New England's
premier institution for pediatric care and research. She has committed to

Below is a link to her fund raising page and please feel free to forward it
to anyone interested in supporting this cause:
Amber and Brian are also going to be holding events at Pizzeria Uno’s on
Friday, March 13th and Sunday, March 22 in Sturbridge. Basically, all you
have to do, if you are interested, is go to Uno’s in Sturbridge and present this
coupon I have attached and they will donate 20% of your bill to Children’s
Hospital. Therese and I will be there and if you are planning on going out
that night for drinks, food, or appetizers, I would encourage you to head to Uno
