When people have kids in school, it’s hard not to be flooded with news about school events, fund-raisers, plays, sports, schedules, troubles, committees, etc. But the majority of citizens are NOT parents of school-age children… and they should have a chance to tune it too.
We get postings like the one below frequently. This one is from Linda in Westford…
Thank you for posting information about the Red Barn fundraiser on Front Porch Forum! My children are young adults so I am not usually aware of the current Westford Hope fundraisers. Like many other parents of Westford school graduates I would be happy to support the fundraising activities of our community school, especially one which includes Vermont products.
