Letter

Our world is  ever-changing

To the editor:

Here I am folks. No problem, I just took time to reflect on what’s going on around us.

It’s hard to believe it’s been several weeks since I last penned a letter to the Ledger-Transcript, but it’s given me time to refresh my memory bank and put things into prospective. No question we are experiencing a societal period, before Obamacare and after. Facts replace promises and truth replaces falsehoods.

We are in the throws of the computer age and instant news. Locally food banks can’t keep up with the demand for help. The unbelievable is the series of changes occurring locally. RiverMead has opened its major addition. Scott-Farrar nursing home is about to start building a new facility. Granite Street will soon have three new condos selling for $600,000-plus each.

St. Patrick’s parishioners raised $25,000 to restore their huge organ. Divine Mercy parish is about to raise $3 millon to double its size when many churches are closing. The shocker is ConVal enrollment will soon have dropped 1,000 students from its peak years. The real news is the Peterborough Players is celebrating its 80th season .

But I like the fact the Peterborough Lions Club just finished its 11th annual Lucky Duck race successfully with the help of out patient Joe Brennan (bypass surgery). The fact is voluntary efforts are always in style and service clubs always play a supporting role to the well being of the community.

As I said we are in a period of change, especially around the world. I conclude we are blessed here in the Monadnock region of our great country.
