I had the pleasure of reading a book about Jacques Cousteau to Ms. Clarke’s 4th grade class at the Pottenger School in Springfield yesterday. The kids are so attentive and inquisitive, which really makes this so much fun for me to do. I strongly recommend looking into Link To Libraries, Inc. and volunteering your time to this wonderful program. After reading, each kid gets to select a donated book for themselves. Thank you to Ms. Clarke for allowing us to read to your class. -Ryan

Congratulations to Rachel’s Table for raising over $30,000 to fight childhood hunger in Western Massachusetts. Alekman DiTusa is proud to be a sponsor. Despite the rain, it was a fun morning and didn’t stop my wife from running the race while my 10 year old daughter and I walked it. As a father, I am especially proud of my daughter Jordan who gives up her Sunday nights to serve on the teen board of Rachel’s Table which organizes fundraisers and food collection drives. Great morning all around! – Rob

With YOUR help we can make her home safe with the right modifications and repairs so that she may “Age in Place” and improve her quality of life!
