In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.

In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

Library Display

    About two weeks ago, we were at the library and S noticed the display case by the front door. He read that the case was available for anyone to display a collection in for one months' time. So he, being the collector that he is, asked the librarian if could display one of his collections. She said yes and that July happened to be free. That made S quite thrilled. He decided to display his Lego Harry Potter collection since the last movie of the series is due out in the middle of the month. He took most of his collection down the other day and did a very good job of setting them up.
