LETTERS: Community refrigerator: What a fantastic idea

To the editor:

I have just read an article on CentralMaine about the book club ladies in Skowhegan. They are modeling an idea of having a Community Refrigerator, that started in New York. It seemed to come to fruition pretty easily. What a great resource for that town.

I’d really like to see more towns do this. Most of the towns that The Town Line serves have both a need for this type of resource and wonderful people that could make it be successful.

If there were to be a free Community Refrigerator near the town office in my town, I will gladly donate as often and as frequently as I’m able to. There may also come a day that I may need (and be thankful to be able) to grab a carton of eggs or a tub of butter.

I’d like people to bring this idea to their town officials or town meetings and I hope to see some of these refrigerators soon. I’m positive that they would be appreciated.

Thank you for the time you took to read this through.
