Living in the global age that we do, it’s important to be reminded on occasion that we humans are most at home in our local communities–where we both know and are known.

Peter was therefore pleased when Wide Angle was recently asked to take part in Arlington Town Day, our community’s annual celebration of itself. He used that occasion as an opportunity to talk with five people representing three local organizations, as well as have a fun conversation with our town manager about what it is that makes Arlington a “town,” as opposed to a city. It being Town Day after all.
