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

Thank You From Ted Goodwin

"To the residents of Sturbridge, thank you for re-electing me to the Board of Selectmen. Sturbridge is a wonderful community where we can enhance our everyday lives through volunteerism and participation. I will work hard to help us meet the challenges Sturbridge faces in the next three years. I anticipate a positive and respectful board where the exchange of ideas and productive debate can continue to move our town forward.

To all of you who worked so hard to help me be re-elected to the Board of Selectmen, I thank you for everything. So many people gave generously of their time and energy and many pledged their support and offered encouraging words. All of this resulted in a successful campaign.To those of you who supported other candidates, thank you for voting and being part of the process, and please know I will be a careful listener to all your concerns.

I want also to thank all the other candidates for their participation. Together we can continue to make Sturbridge a better place.

Ted Goodwin"
