A once-in-a-generation chance | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

At dinner the other evening, friends were talking about the 90-day extension for the land trust to purchase Trillium’s 640 acres for forest preservation. One of my guests said, “You know, if everyone just gave what they’ve given before, we’d be over the top.”

The simplicity of his idea struck me.

Yes, these are terrible economic times. We’ll be asked to choose between our libraries and our schools, our emergency responders and our teachers this fall.

Still, setting aside this acreage is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. You know your grandchildren would thank you for it.
