Fundraiser slated to help Nate Peabody
I just saw a note from the chamber about a fundraising pasta dinner to help out Nate Peabody, former owner of Peabody Landscaping. According to the notice, Peabody was injured four years ago and subsequently had 12 surgeries along with serious complications and setbacks. He hasn't been able to work and lost his business.
I didn't know he was having such troubles. I remember him as a parks commissioner up until his injury, a guy who worked hard summer and winter to get by and still found time to serve his community.
Now, it seems, he's the one who needs help.
One thing about Bristol is that once the community know somebody's in need, it rallies behind him. That's something I've seen over and over for many years.
The fundraising pasta dinner is slated for 6 to 11 p.m., Friday, Nov. 2 at Nuchies, 164 Central St.
