On Friday, Martha hand delivered about 200 handbills to the neighbors surrounding Flannagan Pond. She covered Calvin Street, Oak Ridge Drive, Groton-Harvard Road, Central Avenue and Sandy Pond Road. Kudos and thanks to Martha.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive. People are truly concerned about how the pond has been neglected in recent years. I spent an hour and a half on Saturday evening reading and responding to the many e-mail messages that I received in the firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox on Saturday.
The website was unknown on Friday morning, but on Saturday we had 83 visitors and on Sunday, as I am drafting this post, we’ve already had 45. For a neighborhood initiative, that is an overwhelming response. As good as that is, it is not enough. We need people to come out on Wednesday evening at 7:00 to meet at the Town Hall.
We want to share our vision with you all and we want to gather your input and your support as we move forward. I have received many e-mails from people who say they will be there. I hope to see you there. While you’re at it, run across the street and grab your neighbors and bring them with you.
