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”
