To the editor:
I am writing on behalf of the Belmont Senior Apartment residents on West Pleasant Street. While management has provided one picnic table and three benches, none are situated in a restful, shady position. Since there are about three large, shade trees in grassy area, we would appreciate a chair or bench in which to contemplate/meditate, maybe with a pet or reading matter.
Management has told us if we want them, get them yourself. Our residents’ budget is very limited. Maybe an individual or organization could donate an unused Adirondack chair or a comfortable bench. A metal bistro set painted a funky color could be used, but not resin chairs which could easily blow over or be stolen.
Your generosity and compassion would be appreciated. For any questions, call 234-2533.
