The Pleasures of Very Small Towns

I was down at the Community Center today and found an acquaintance on her hands and knees weeding one of the library's little flower gardens.  Turns out that members of the Historical Society (who use the Center's back room for meetings and for displaying some of their historical Point Roberts collection) had proposed doing this 'vegetation management' as a kind of payment for their use of the building's space.  That's the kind of thing that is possible in a place this size.  And even more important, it is likely that somebody would think to make such a proposal.

Similarly, the owner of Brewster's asked the Friends of the PR Library if it worked for them if Brewster's put together a half dozen outdoor film nights this summer whose revenue could go to the Library Building Fund.  People do help each other here and we probably don't specifically recognize it or mention it often enough.  So I'm mentioning it and recognizing it right this minute.
