When I received my save-the-date invitation to the wedding ceremony of a dear friend of mine I was thrilled at their choice of location. Brewster's Drummer Boy Park is the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony.
The large white bandstand sits amid an open grassy field that overlooks the sand dunes and water of Cape Cod Bay. A nearby playground invites families and children to play and enjoy the surroundings, and an old windmill stands tall on top of a hill along the edge of a beautiful wildflower garden.
The bride and groom had chosen this location because they'd both grown up in Brewster and had visited this park their whole lives…

From our family to yours,
Publisher's Note: I am republishing this poem which first appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of CWO because it is an important reminder about why it's so important we remember our homeless neighbors this Holiday season.
Christmas (revised & revisited)
by Colorado T. Sky
The old woman wheels a shopping cart
Down a sullen city alleyway
In the lee of a trashcan rampart
But whatever happened to the kind of Christmas
