A Proper Send-Off

Dear Editor,

Is it time to let go of the Bridge Street School? I don’t mean in a cold way like demolish it or knock it down.

I mean in a thoughtful and caring way to celebrate its passing. Perhaps, a ceremony to reflect on its meaning to the Town of Suffield.

Perhaps creating a suitable commemorative structure or monument to memorialize the School and all that it meant to generations of students. A memorial on par with one that we might create for a loved one or a loved pet.

A chance to mourn and weep and then move on. 

In my limited travel I have seen communities build wonderful new libraries and community centers that are accessible to all residents. Single floor plans that are modern yet compatible with the architecture of the town or city. I hope that we can unite in such an effort. It saddens me to think otherwise.
