In days of inequities laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic, we are grateful for our community of helpers in the Boothbay region.

Yarrow & Cleat aims to be a chronicle of hope, healing, and humanity; few communities reflect these ideals as fully as those on our peninsula.

We know Boothbay: we have friends who live here, and we pay attention to what goes on. In what we see—in our local friends’ everyday caring for one another no matter oddness or idiosyncrasy—we see such inspiration. Our neighbors encourage us each day.

We are grateful for all of those among us ready to help those hurting and experiencing hardship, no matter who they are.

No matter who they are. And for that, we are most thankful.
