Enjoy those open vistas
The Conanicut Island Land Trust has given a gift to the entire community and one that truly celebrates the meaning of Christmas. The view driving south on North Main Road is breathtaking as I look across Hodgkiss Farm. You and I can now enjoy that open vista thanks to hard work, physical labor on the part of our friends and neighbors. That effort truly exemplifies the Christmas Spirit. Last year, the land trust cleared the left side of the road abutting the Neale Farm. Now as we drive along, whether we look to the left or right we are aware of how fortunate we are to have a dedicated group of citizens who work for the preservation of open space. In addition, we are fortunate that the Chase and Neale families are willing to share the view of their farms with us. To the Conanicut Island Land Trust, the Chase and Neale families, I say thank-you. Merry Christmas to all.
