What Community Means to Me
Sadie Curtis, Age 8
Community is the woman we pass on the way to school every day.
It is the kids in the park who love to play.
Community is the man in the shop who sells the flowers.
It is the horses who exercise in the early hours.
Community is the wonderful people we meet.
It is the restaurants that provide good food for us to eat.
Community is the schools that teach kids things they need to know.
It is the family and friends and people who love us so.
Community is the sweets that people make that lighten up our day.
It is places like Memorial Hall and Palace House that are here to stay.
Most of all, community is people like you and me.
That is why Newmarket is the place to be.
