TELL US: Who Makes a Difference in Canton?

Help showcase people who are doing great things in town with our new feature, Count Us In.

Your neighbor who volunteers at the library, your child’s bus driver, and the Little League coach in your community may not seem to have much in common at first glance.

But Patch’s new initiative, Count Us In, aspires to bring together all Good Samaritans by highlighting residents who are exemplary at making your community a more positive place.

Some examples from Canton include the Canton Food Pantry, volunteers at the Canton Council on Aging, students at Canton High School, local moms in town, gardening enthusiasts and the Bank of Canton, among others.

Partnering with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), Count Us In aims to illustrate HPHC's values. They believe that “amazing things happen when people work together” and that is why we want to share stories about just that.

If you know someone in Canton who exemplifies being a good neighbor, volunteer or teacher—or someone who has simply helped the community in an inspiring way—please tell us about it in the comments section below. Your local editor will keep an eye on the conversation and will be writing articles about all of the amazing people and stories you share.

We welcome all great stories coming from great people in the community.

Someone who exemplifies being a good neighbor, volunteer or teacher...how about a firefighter/EMT or police officer for it is these dedicated men and women who serve us daily and expedient response at our 911 call often in desperation that are the individuals there comforting us and often helping to save Life! Let's honor these folks - Let's tale a real lok at the various department and stories of selflessness when we at a time in histpory, we see so emany we "entrust" who are indeed self-serving and blatant lie for all we have to do is look from the top down and let's begin not with the charade at Benghazi as pepetuated y the WH and State, but when a resonding police officer(s) were called by 911 for a possible break in and a WH sought the opportunity to interfere in a local police action and then attempted to continue its arrogance and condescending ways in divisiveness to hold a beer fest on the WH lawn - how appaling so let's take a look at the commitment in each of oru commiunities, not only Canton which offers soem of the best in law enforcement and fire/EMT response, but to every town in the metro Boston area which should always thank these men and women for it is not only teachers and others in our towns that make contribution, many of these men and women serving as - first responders - are our little league coaches and other....
