A Busy Summer

Well, it's September already and a lot has been happening over the summer, though there has clearly not been a lot of Front Porch blogging going on!

The biggest news is that The Front Porch has been funded once again by the Commonwealth of MA for another year, thanks to the tireless advocacy efforts of our local legislators: Representatives Steven M. Walsh and Lori Ehrlich and Senator Thomas M. McGee. All three joined us recently to celebrate the hanging of the completed Neighborhood Quilt and the completion of The Front Porch's first year. Everyone was treated to a wonderful slideshow of highlights of the year, created by our departing Americorps/VISTA volunteer Keith Graul, and afternoon tea. Our new Americorps/VISTA volunteer will be starting next week.

The garden has continued growing and the beans, in particular, are reaching for the sky!
