Making It Last

I have been so pleased lately with all of the people who have stopped me to say how beautiful the village looks or what a great job I’ve done. My answer is always the same: I have very little to do with it. It is our Department of Public Works employees who work hard to make everything look so great. In between picking up leaves and removing snow, they decorate just about anything that doesn’t move

In this holiday season, it is so nice that people are acting friendlier. This time of year, I reflect on my own good fortune of a family that loves me and great friends who share my life. If only we could make Christmastime last into the year beyond.

In our lives, if we could follow the guidance of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” or the idea of Karma, in that if we think good thoughts, do good deeds and treat one another well, our lives will be so much better.

I will strive for that moving forward. I hope others will as well.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.

Gary J. Goleski
