Why did you get involved with WLCT?

I got involved with WLCT because I would like to do what I can to keep Westport a working agricultural community.


What are you most thankful for this year?

I am most thankful for Bishop de Cunha’s help in allowing us to preserve the St. Vincent de Paul property as a community park. And I have much appreciation for over 160 families and the Town of Westport, who made this project a reality.
