Calendar, 2023

Friends of Valley Falls board of directors has been planning for 2023.  Much of the work revolves around the opening of the Heritage Center.  Our year began with good news:  we were awarded a $6,200 grant from CT Humanities!  The grant will help to mount the final displays and exhibits, as we continue to try to create a new year of experiences  and events to facilitate our Vernon community connection.  “Preserving  History and Nature at Valley Falls”
