I really enjoyed reading everything that Prospect has to offer, and I can understand thanks to your explanation, why it has been named the best little Small Town in Connecticut.  I am always enchanted by a town that values education and understands the need of its population both young and old.  It shows great values and a place for everyone.  Thanks for your entry in this contest.  A
