“06880” reader Elliott Fisher is a 1977 graduate of Staples High School. Except for 1992-2004, he has lived in the same house here since 1971.
Last August, Elliott suffered a mild stroke. He is no longer able to drive. He writes:
While I have wonderful friends who take me grocery shopping and to various doctor appointments, my greatest treat is the social aspect of being at the Westport Library.
I would like to be able to get there 4-5 times a week. Are there Westport residents who can drive me from my house off Greens Farms Road, near South Compo?
If so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or text 203-451-5087. Put “Help with a ride” in the subject line. Thank you!
That’s Elliott’s request, and it’s an important one.
Here’s mine: There must be many folks like Elliott in Westport in the same, um, boat. What transportation opportunities are available to them? (Besides the obvious — and costly — taxis.)
