Those plans are being made possible by the Oct. 16 purchase of four Booth Woods building lots from the Raymond Danyow Family Trust.

MIDDLEBURY — When you live to 90, it’s safe to say that you’ve seen some stuff. It’s also safe to say, getting old is tough. Loved ones pass on, you move into assisted living, you lose your driver’s license and your memories… and even a rhyme can’t hide that it’s rough.
