A Simple Message For Dorchester Area Residents

Occasionally, we try to inspire our readers with words of wisdom from the past. Today is one of those days.

Please read, comprehend and live these simple words from 101 years ago if you are:

  • A resident of Dorchester;
  • A resident of the surrounding district;
  • A parent with children in Dorchester Schools;
  • A student of Dorchester Schools;
  • A member of the Dorchester School Board;
  • A member of the Dorchester Village Board;
  • A community volunteer;
  • An employee of any entity in Dorchester, public or private; or
  • An area retiree.
The message is simply:

"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand."

President Woodrow Wilson, 1913
