Street lights called them home 

Our guest shares a positive experience of community anchored in a rich family tradition of openness and caring, in a place where kids answered the call of the street lights coming on as the signal to get back home, where elders sipped coffee and shared cake in fellowship. They describe how they have managed to maintain and cultivate a sense of belonging in the Upper Valley, using dialogue and mutual respect as the cornerstones to build their local community. (Premiered 9/6/22)
