Let’s Cel­e­brate ‘Nice’

Taste of Home - - Just A Taste -

Yes, the news can be a source of anx­i­ety. But amid all the neg­a­tive head­lines there are amaz­ing acts of kind­ness hap­pen­ing in the good old USA. We know this be­cause Reader’s Di­gest, our sis­ter brand, re­ceived hun­dreds of en­tries in its first an­nual “Nicest Place in Amer­ica” pro­gram last year. And RD is tak­ing nom­i­na­tions again for 2018. If you live in a city where peo­ple are demon­strat­ing com­pas­sion in ways worth rec­og­niz­ing, tell us about it.

To spark your think­ing, I asked our vol­un­teer Field Edi­tors if they had any nice places to nom­i­nate. Here are a few:

“My home­town, Beth­le­hem, Penn­syl­va­nia, is a beau­ti­ful place to live. The cen­ter of the city is com­posed of re­stored his­toric build­ings dat­ing back to the 18th cen­tury. Plus, it has such a friendly pop­u­la­tion.”

“Colch­ester, Ver­mont, lo­cated along Lake Cham­plain, has gor­geous parks, bike paths and beaches, and our schools are awe­some. It’s a won­der­ful com­mu­nity and a VERY nice place!”

—NANCY MOCK

“I nom­i­nated my town of Rochester, Min­nesota, last year!”

— JULIE HER­RERA-LEMLER
