I love the town I live in more and more everyday.

A few years ago, Raymond became the home of the Tuckaway Tavern and for that, I am sooo thankful.  My freezer is always full of the best burgers, sausage, chicken and marinated steak tips around.  Back in the day, if I said I was from Raymond, they used to say.... "isn't that where the WalMart Distribution Center is?"  Yes, yes it is.  But now, people say, "OH!  I LOVE the Tuckaway!"

Let us not forget the beauty of Pawtuckaway State Park.  I have hiked many, many miles of their trails and consider the park part of my backyard.  I just love it.

NOW, literal signs of encouragement are popping up at the major intersections just off Exit 5, off 101 and I suspect the Raymond Coalition for Youth.  I have no proof of that, I just know that they do good work.

What a breath of fresh air to pass by a sign that says:

  • YOU ARE ENOUGH
  • YOU MATTER
  • LIFE IS TOUGH, BUT SO ARE YOU

I love it!  I truly makes me feel good about my town.

Just one thing if you visit - please don't park on the street at the Tuckaway.  It's annoying.
