Tales From the City

A born fund-raiser

The next generation of public television star in Dorchester.

One day recently, my 4-year-old granddaughter, Tatum, and I decided to make stick puppets. She crouched down behind the kitchen island and put on her show, after which I applauded enthusiastically. Still hidden, with puppets held aloft, she then announced, “This program was made possible by contributions to your PBS station from viewers like you — thank you!”
