What a great profile of an extraordinary woman with such rich stories to tell about a Suffield others would deny. Indeed, we all need to listen. As a new resident in town, it is a privilege to hear Betty’s story and to know she lives just down the road.
On March 27, as my neighbor and I were taking our early morning walk I fell on the sidewalk on N. Main Street. As I sat catching my breath a black pick-up truck stopped and a young man hurried over to help me up.
In regards to your opinion piece (Good Listeners May Change Their Thinking, April 2021 issue) stating that some residents complain that The Suffield Observer is too liberal. I look at it through another prism that really is quite simple to discern.
My husband and I are happy to live in a community with an amazing grassroots effort that is working on multiple fronts to call out and defeat bias and racism in our Town. ABAR Suffield (“anti-bias, anti-racism”) is growing in strength and numbers.
