Hardy folks of the Ten Mile River Watershed Council, on the trail at the Fish Hatchery in N.Attleboro

Last weekend we had a kickoff meeting for our newest project. And since the project is an effort to document and share the trails and canoe put-ins of the Ten Mile River watershed, our meeting was held outdoors. No matter that the temperature hovered in the teens. The volunteers of this water conservation group are a hardy lot, and cheerfully headed out with me on the trail at the Fish Hatchery on Bungay Road in North Attleboro. Continue reading

Hardin noted recently that, “I knew my uncle had died heroically and that he’d gotten a purple heart. But I didn’t realize how little I really knew about him.” Continue reading

Walpole Profile: Hosted by Sue Richardson

Marjorie Turner Hollman
•Thu, Jul 28, 2011
(Courtesy of Hometown Weekly)I stared in puzzlement as I walked into East Walpole resident Sue Richardson’s kitchen some twenty years ago. Everywhere I looked there were little pieces of paper filled with writing. They were stuck to the floor, the table, the window, the doorway and even on a chair.
 We’re old friends. After taking in the scene, I finally blurted out, “What’s going on?” Continue reading

Home-Grown Fruit And Reminiscences From Bellingham Couple

(Courtesy of The Bellingham Bulletin) The sign on the street announcing “Raspberries” got my husband’s attention. He turned our car into the driveway. The sign on the garage instructed, “Knock at the door.” I wasn’t so sure, but my husband really loves raspberries and he figured that, if the sign was there, these folks must have meant for people to stop by. He was right. Continue reading

Jean Holmes says it was the photo of the turtle that got to her. “I have a picture of myself bending over to pat a big turtle. When I saw the photo, I thought, ‘I’m as big as that turtle!’” Holmes, a resident of Bellingham, decided she had to do something about her size and started going to Curves Fitness Center in Bellingham plaza every day after working at Stall Brook School. “I get off at 10:30 and come straight here. I’m here six days a week, unless it’s closed because of bad weather,” Jean explained. As we spoke, the conversation and laughter of the other women who had come to exercise filled the room.

Sheridan Takes School Food Program Out Of The Red & Into The Black

(article courtesy of The Bellingham Bulletin)

When Bellingham Food Service Director Jeanne Sheridan started working in Bellingham, she was told she’d never be able to get rid of the Fry-o-laters® in the Bellingham schools. But in a recent conversation at the middle school, Sheridan proudly noted, “With the support of the School Committee, the Fry-o-laters are gone, and we were able to trade them in for a panini press. We serve panini sandwiches at the high school every day now.”

Lake life: taking lessons from the local inhabitants

(Article Courtesy of The Christian Science Monitor)

I have the heart of a world traveler, but the body and temperament of a day-tripper. While I love to hear of others’ travels, I have thrived by staying closer to home. By studying one place as it has changed with the seasons and the years, I have learned much about where I live and about myself as well.

Henry David Thoreau noted wryly, “I have traveled a great deal in Concord.” Over the years I have echoed his sentiments as I have “traveled a great deal” around Silver Lake, my home of these past 30 years. This small lake community, south of Boston, has helped me not only to understand but to welcome, or at least to make peace with, the relentless change in my world.
