Laurel Hill Association of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, founded in 1853, is the oldest existing village improvement society in the United States. The organization's purpose is to do “such things as shall serve to improve the quality of life and of the environment in the town of Stockbridge.” Activities include maintaining Association properties, planting trees and flowers, and cooperating with the town and other organizations for community welfare.
"How to Walk Across The United States ... and Why?" That's the theme of this year's Laurel Hill Day talk by featured speaker Nancy Fitzpatrick, to be held August 4 at 2:00 pm at the Rostrum in the center of Laurel Hill Park.
Let's face it, we're blessed to live and/or spend time in Stockbridge. It's truly a wonderful life. Yet right here, there may be pockets of food insecurity and hunger among those struggling to get by, on fixed incomes, etc. We'd like to take a moment to provide information to those in need, and to promote an upcoming fundraiser.
