Share your community stories

Adirondack Communities logoThis week on the Adirondack Explorer website, we ran a story about the community of Indian Lake rallying to save their local branch of Community Bank from closing. (Read it here)

Now I’d like to hear from you: Who are the people in your community that make things happen? What are some other examples of Adirondack towns and villages coming together to creatively solve problems and come up with innovative solutions?

    The people who make things happen in our communities are all of us. We are the old and the young, the sick and the healthy, conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats, people of wealth and those less prosperous. We are college grads who settled here from another place and neighbors with deep local roots who stayed behind and got a “degree” in hard work and common sense from that famous school of hard knocks. We are all different , but we are all the same – and that is never going to change. We are all tied together because this is home, and we love this place.

    If we can just open our hearts and stop looking for reasons to hate each other, we will discover that we all have ways to help make our Adirondack communities the best they can be both now and in the future. Can’t we give it a try?

      It isn’t really part of human genetics. Harmony doesn’t come naturally to us. Those who want to live in a society must continually work at it.
