Brookstone DLP Week One!

Every year around the New Year, I pray and ponder over choosing one word to focus on for the rest of the year – kind of like a theme for the year. My word for 2020 was “new.” There was going to be a lot of “new” for me in 2020 – a wedding for my oldest son, and along with that a new daughter-in-law, a new phase of life for them and for our family.  So at the time, I thought that word was appropriate.

Clark Smith Signs to Play at Tufts!

We could not be prouder of senior Clark Smith who signed yesterday to play football next year at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusets.
