Editorial: How did you get here?

When you meet someone new to Gloucester or Mathews, one of the questions usually asked is “what brought you to this county?”

We would like to hear from our readers: what brought you here?

Our communities have a strong mix of residents: people who have always lived here, as their families before them did for generations, and people who moved here to be close to their work, or to retire. Every workplace, every club, every church, every organization experiences this healthy mix of backgrounds.

It’s a perennial topic, and one we may raise again, if this week’s question draws any response.

What brought you here? Please let us know. We ask you to sign your letter and follow all the rules in the “Letters to the Editor” box found on this page. We hope to get some interesting letters.
