Don't miss the big stories. Like us on Facebook.  

In the hopes that we all might be reminded of the people who continue to work through a global crisis at great personal risk to keep our community functioning, and out of my own desire to somehow express thanks, here is the fourth in a series of portraits of our fellow community members whose work has been deemed essential.

To see the first three series of portraits, go online to bit.ly/2LeEBVG, bit.ly/ 38WPMv0 and bit.ly/ 2Nsk3JO.

This project is possible thanks to a grant from the Town Arts Fund through the Arts Council of Windham County.
