Schneider’s Hardware on Wyndhurst has for generations used the glass front door for neatly taped notices. An overflowing bulletin board sits at the back of Evergreen Café on Cold Spring Lane. The Children’s Bookstore on Deepdene Road has one at the front of the store. Starbucks on Roland Avenue has one too.
In an age of social media, some may think that bulletin boards are passé. Apparently, not. Consider the utility box at the corner of Roland Avenue and Deepdene Road. New signs are taped there daily.
Having a new one go up at the Village Square Café does not surprise me. That bustling, delicious place has become a community hub. Its friendly owners are always there, greeting patrons and making sure everything operates smoothly. Having a bulletin board at the front of the store speaks of their sense of community connection.
