The President’s Message

What a busy and event-filled summer it has been and fall looks even busier!
Our Opening Day celebration was a success with better weather this year. There were “Made In Belchertown” crafters, our “Old Bag” sale (where many found bargains), a terrific plant sale, and, of course, tours of the Stone House Museum.
How can we give enough thanks to the volunteers who worked tirelessly to bring off the separate elements that made this such a wonderful day for our organization? Special thanks are due to Sally Shattuck who headed up our Plant Sale, Marnie Henneman who headed up the bags, Carol Mierzewski & Geri Amprimo who rounded up crafters, and Becki Smith for all her work to make the grounds so beautiful. Many thanks to all!
