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

Get That Warm, Fuzzy Feeling For Ten Bucks
One thing $10.00 can buy today, that will not only be free from buyers remorse, but also comes with a good feeling, is a donation to Tables On The Common.
It only takes a few minutes to make a donation with the widget at the top of the page. If you're shy, and would like to donate anonymously, then send your donations in care of me at 60 Brookfield Road in Fiskdale 01518.
We have a unique opportunity here to do something that won't cost a lot, but be worth so much to those that use the Town Common.
Donations of any size are welcome, even large corporate, and business donations. I like those, too.
Imagine taking a walk with the family on a Saturday morning, stopping by the bakery at the Publick House, and then sitting at a table on the Common enjoying a cup of coffee and a muffin, or taking a lunch break away from the office, and relaxing with the paper in the shade of one of those 200 year old maples.
Simple pleasures that can be had for just $10.00. If 160 people donate ten dollars, we can meet our goal. We don't want to settle for just one table. That's a tease. Nothing worse than a Picnic Tease.
Please take a moment to give.
