On a small scale

Philanthropic endeavors can be small in scale, but still contribute to the greater good.

As is the case with Nicholas, Anthony and Vincenzo Barassi, along with friends, Rob and Sara Kogut (see front page story), who have been practicing hard to put together a benefit concert ~ this Friday ~ to help fund the Junior Police Academy program, held in Leominster each summer, and enjoyed by many middle-school aged children.

These children believe in the importance of the academy, and have done something about it. We applaud them for their efforts and hard work, and through our youth appears great examples of hope.
