The Independent Clause… October 24, 2014

In this week’s edition, there are several touching stories of good works being done by Stow residents. The first is a story that started in Stow many years ago. I remember first editing the “Lost Boys” tale back before this paper even existed.    If I remember correctly, Mary Kerr and her family were helping John Deng train for his first Boston Marathon. It is so nice to see how his life is full of successes and happiness now, thanks in no small part, I’m sure, to the support he received from the people here in Stow.

The newly named Three Boys Farm, owned by Frank and Kim Gesualdi, is another great story of Stow residents enriching the lives of others. Having sold their North End restaurant, which we featured in a story a few years ago, the family is now partnering with a program called TILL, to provide learning opportunities and work experience for people with special needs on their farm.

Having worked in special needs for the first 20 or so years of my professional career, I have to admit a personal affinity for the subject. This is a really great opportunity for people with challenges to learn and thrive in a unique environment where they can master tasks they may not have otherwise encountered.

On the sports front, several Nashoba teams are heading to post-season spots over the next few weeks and we’ll keep you updated on their progress.
