When you google the word “community” you have a long list of definitions to scroll through. I wanted to see what words described what I personally experienced Oct. 4 during the Long, Long, Long, Long Dinner (LLLLD) as I walked from table to table and saw neighbors, children, and strangers mingling, laughing and enjoying a meal together. The best definition that I found was “community is a feeling of fellowship and unity with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals”

In the LLLLD’s case, we shared a table, food and common goal, that of improving our town by investing in the Baltimore Street Revitalization Project (BSRP).
