Open Forum: Thanks to the Pequot voters


How wonderful it is to live in a community that chooses hope over despair!

In the coldest part of winter, you ventured out to say yes, we believe in our children, we believe in our community, and we are willing to bet on, and invest in, a hopeful view of our future.

Let us continue to be involved, and pay attention as the school building project moves forward, so that our voices of hope will be included in the actual construction and use of this facility.
