Hamilton and Wenham are simply great places to grow up. I graduated from HWHS in 1968 and went off to College at Kent Sate University. I still live there, It is a great town also. In HW remenber the tremendous support young folks received from everyone in the towns. Encouragement to pursue dreams no mater where they might take you. Though the Patch I now get the news of the day from Hamilton and Wenham and it sounds like it is the same kind of caring place today as it was back then. Bravo to Hamilton and Wenham.

Friendly people, living next to Chebacco Lake, the farms, open space and well maintained trails. I really appreciate all of the people who work very hard to protect land and keep Hamilton free of big box stores, strip malls and lots of pavement.

I love all the Babies and Books parents, grandparents,nannies,friends and relatives and especially the babies and toddlers who came to my classes. They came to the Wenham Library at the Town Hall and then Banbury Cross Children's Bookshop. I love Pat, Gwen and Diane who made the store a unique destination with all their collective expertise. I love the donkey's and the horses on 1A especially in the morning when the sun is in back of them and they are silhouettes against the sky. I love Patton Park - the tank, skating on the pond and the fake wolves that made the geese move to the other side. I love the Wenham Museum. My mother took me there often because we both loved dolls. I love the Wenham Tea house because my mother took me there after the Museum. They sold dolls, music boxes and glass horses. I still have the collection of those toys I bought with my allowance. I love Silver Bridge where we would hang out and swim with the Ham/Wen High School kidsI I loved Hamilton Taxi where I got my 1st job after college. Actually, I wasn't a very good driver but it was fun driving the Irish maids to the train. They were so excited to go to Boston on their days off. One of my clients from Hamilton, that I drove to McLean Hospital in Belmont in a snow storm, was the man who murdered his maid because she was making too much noise. I love that Hamilton story.

Love you Bobby for everything you do to keep the Ham/Wen Patch always interesting. You have your hands on the P U L S E..

What do I love? The lack of congestion and traffic lights.It's a great place for a bike rider or a dog owner. People are relaxed and greet you with a smile.My neighbors are considerate and kind. As one who appreciates a hearty ale, I can shop Crosby's, Harrigans, or the package store by the train station, all with great variety; if it's a pint on draft that I want, there's 15 Walnut, the Weathervane, and the Black Cow. There is no shortage of dining-out options. I'm a short hop away from Route 95 north or south, keeping both Boston or New Hampshire within convenient distance.There's a rural, small-town vibe here with many built-in conveniences. What's not to love?
