Tonight is the Lynnfield Zoning Board of Appeals meeting regarding our spring and, more importantly, your ability to come to it for water. While we intend to honor our spring by working to share it with all of you, we are there to honor your rights to come to our spring for its healing waters.
A few people have spoken out to restrict this site and that means a lot more people have to speak out about keeping the spring open. We are confident in our ability to overcome these obstacles and in doing so have rediscovered our purpose in serving many of you.
As a result of the many letters and input that we have received, we are going to start a series of posts on the people who visit our spring. We find many of your stories inspirational and visitors to our spring represent a special community of people who are committed to the movement of clean water.
Here is one of the letters we recently received in support of our spring that was also sent to the Zoning Board of Appeals (the author was kind enough to share the letter):
Dear Lynnfield Zoning Board,
Many years ago a good friend of mine told me about Pocahontas Spring in Lynnfield. He explained the amazing taste, high quality and health benefits. Knowing that this person practices a healthy lifestyle and in his quest to be healthy to find the perfect water, he researched many different types of water and what is the best for our bodies; I buried it in the back of my mind knowing that one day this information would be of use to me.
About a year ago I decided to give it a try. The water is so fresh and crisp it is like drinking water that flows from a glacier! I was immediately addicted! For many years my liver was sluggish from all of the toxins and metals from tap and bottled water. My liver now feels great and I have lost 30 lbs. I also believe that drinking from plastic water bottles is very toxic to our bodies and not very good for our earth. I can’t even imagine how many plastic bottles are in our dumps and in our oceans!
Every week I drive to Lynnfield with 8 glass gallon jugs, and fill them and return
home to enjoy this wonderful water all week with my family of three and 2 cats.
I have tried to find another Spring similar to this in Florida where I will eventually live part-time. It just does not exist! We are so very, very lucky to have this Spring in Lynnfield. Honestly it is helping a lot of people for many health reasons. When I fill my jugs, I am usually the only one there the property is so quiet and peaceful. I also take a peek at the Spring in the back and say thanks for this delicious and hydrating water. This is a precious gift from nature to us, please allow the Spring to remain open.
