This stop is about what my community means to me. As I reflect on this and take 5 minutes from my pending move to write this I realize it means a lot.
Just this week I went to a Cassie and Maggie concert put on by the Town of Riverview. I was grateful that the community put this on for free and that I was working that day so could attend at night. As I watched my son and other children dance to fiddle music, I enjoyed the music and had a sense of belonging, even though the average age of attendees was as you would expect a fiddle concert to be.
They also brought me “home” in the sense that they are from a town/ area very close to my home town in Nova Scotia. One town I’m very happy to say I’m moving back to, in a house of my family’s dreams (pending avoidable disaster).
Community togetherness thus means a lot to me and my family while I watch my son bond and grow with the children around him. While I remember my friends and family I will miss here and the opportunities the community provided me while I grew here.
So thanks to Moncton and thanks for New Glasgow for welcoming my family and me back!
And thank you for reading,
