Earth Day Essay

June 30th, 2013

When asking high school seniors what their favorite place in Westborough is, you will most likely receive a slew of restaurants, diners, stores, or maybe no response at all.

It even beats out the cheese fries at Harry's. The naturally occurring beauty of the reservoir is reason enough for every member of our community to volunteer their time and effort in to preserving this irreplaceable wonder.
