Most historians agree that the fabric of any society is stronger when the institutions in that society are healthy and vibrant. I personally believe that as the institutions go, so goes the whole community. Our schools, churches and organizations must serve as our foundations, and here in Coraopolis as in other cities and towns, that has always been the case. We have both history and opportunity here today. Greater involvement and commitment must be a consideration, for all of us. If not in a school, church, or club, then in some other way. The increase in community good and measurable progress rarely happens from a single person, but in groups of people – and groups with common goals and values.
