A wonderful hike on one of the Georges River Land trails in Rockport on Sunday afternoon reminded me that it won't be long until the leaves have all fallen and the colors of my present world will be different. I hope you've had a chance to enjoy some of the sunshine and the beautiful leaves this October. 

The arts assessment initiative next regional professional development opportunity is coming up on October 28th at the Jefferson School.
