TELL US: Who Makes a Difference in Hamilton and Wenham?

Help showcase people who are doing great things in Hamilton and Wenham with our new feature, Count Us In.

Your neighbor who volunteers at the library, your child’s bus driver, and the Little League coach all may not seem to have much in common at first glance.

But Patch’s new initiative, Count Us In, aspires to bring together all Good Samaritans by highlighting residents who are exemplary at making your community a more positive place.

Whether it is the schools, the Councils on Aging or the local youth sports leagues, there's volunteers taking active roles in the community every day.

Partnering with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), Count Us In aims to illustrate HPHC's values. They believe that “amazing things happen when people work together” and that is why we want to share stories about just that.

If you know someone who exemplifies being a good neighbor, volunteer or teacher—or someone who has simply helped the community in an inspiring way—please tell us about it in the comments section below. We will keep an eye on the conversation and will be writing articles about all of the amazing people and stories you share.

We welcome all great stories coming from great people in the community.

Melissa Emer at the Community House for the Middle School Dance Program. Holly Reagan, the Hamilton-Wenham Mother's Club, and the Friends of the Patton Park Playground for the improvements at Patton Park. Barbara Locke for her leadership of the Wenham Village Improvement Society whose sole mission is to improve life in the town. Sue Kassirer and the artist that organize Art Grows Here. Regina Baker who continually tries to improve the Pleasant Pond area. Sarah Gaylord and the board of the Hamilton Wenham EdFund. The list goes on and on....please add.
