In anticipation of lovely days for hiking or for those who prefer not to climb up craggy paths, Pat Flinn will take us on a visual tour of Laurel Hill trails on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 6:30 in the Bement Room. Hiking boots are not required. Pat Flinn has been Secretary of the Laurel Hill Association for 31 years.
The 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 town authorities and other organizations for community welfare. The Laurel Hill Association’s complete historical records are housed in the Procter Museum & Archives at the Stockbridge Library.
