The spirit of giving back

By ,

In this time of year, we look to our neighborhoods and communities, checking out the list displays and deciding which New Year's event to attend. (I'm partial to East Petersburg's drop of “Haydn's Jug” at the square.)

As homeowners in these places, we have a responsibility to participate, and this season always reminds me of it.

Wherever you live, I would encourage you to take the time to say “hi” to the neighbors and help them shovel their driveway. Stop at some local restaurants and shops rather than the big boxes. Go to the first town meeting of the new year to welcome newly elected local officials.

We all pay the taxes and keep our yards up to snuff in the communities we live in. Let’s go the extra mile to get involved in one other person’s life in our neighborhood and bless them in this season of blessing.
