Fulfillment is what I felt as I walked to the Shops at Falmouth Village. In 1999 I had succeeded in getting a referendum passed to protect the beautiful trees on the Little League ball field. I am 88 years old now and I use a walker.
I walked down Depot Road, took a nice, cement path to the playground, where mothers were with their children, sitting on benches while the children rode their tricycles. From there I went through the trees to the plaza, where there were more families gathered (I wish they would get the fountain working).
I had lunch, went to Staples, the Hallmark store and the toy store. As I walked backed, I thought this is what the Falmouth Village is, just as planned. Families and their children enjoying the freedom to walk and play safely. It felt so good.
