Our Pinky Street, one of the oldest streets in the world, was almost lost to a big fire last night. Most of the old houses on Pinky were burned down. The living history we are proud of is dying. But we should never give up. Pinky is like a parent, always there caring for our town. Now we must do something together to get the old Pinky back. There will be a meeting at 2:00 this Saturday afternoon at Town Office. Anyone who wants to help is welcome. Let’s see what we can do.
