Happy Spring! So much to celebrate this month!
“Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.” – Adlai Stevenson

Two years ago, I was the shuttle driver for a trio of Suffield High School sophomores, one of whom had managed to get access to an Instagram message group where Suffield juniors and seniors modeled their purchased prom gowns.

With the first of spring’s flowers, I am reminded that even after a harsh winter, the world comes back to life. I share your relief and cautious optimism that COVID-19’s grip has finally loosened.
