I was blessed today to have an interview with Mr. Fred Fantini; an 18 term year school Committee member. We greeted each other and were granted a room in the main library to conduct what was to be an interview.

Fred started off responding to my first question which was what piqued his interest in politics. He shared that his brother David who also was involved in politics was a major influence on him. He talked about his family belief to contribute to the community.

I must start off by reporting how business like; yet very down to earth Shelley the owner of Albertine Press struck me. Upon entering the establishment I was directed to the rear of the store where there was a huge printing press which Shelley was demonstrating its usage to customers. Shelley and I sat at a table to begin the interview.  must mention her inquisitive and personable daughter, Emily. I asked Shelley how long had she been in business in Inman Square. She replied that she had been here for close to two months. That would make her a start-up, right?

The Wednesday before Christmas twas actually December 20th, 2017; and the  Inman Square apartments held their annual Christmas Holiday Party. The management who puts on this gala affair outdoes themselves year after year. The community room located on the top floor of this apartment building was where this festive occasion was held.

Welcome in

Months ago I happened upon a unique store. The name of this store was called practice space. At my first visit there were many things that caught my attention; such as clothing, books, art, and many quotes. these quotes were meant to lift one's spirit. So its not just a star-up store. It is a space which many customers frequent to discover what is new. The main item which I noticed more than anything else is that of the propreitors friendliness and how welcome they are all to all of their customers. Personally I like the quotes, because they certainly do lift my spirits.

So there was a glitch on friday because of a three hour rainstorm. The banquet was cancelled and both festivities haoppened on Saturday ten to fifteen eager players showed what they had to the coaches.
