Sunday November 3, 10:00 a.m. at Tyler Mill
Back by popular demand!
It’s Sunday, November 3rd. You turned your clock back, went to bed, and woke up bright and early in the morning. What should you do with that extra hour? TAKE A HIKE! Some of you have missed being outdoors with us, so please join members of the Conservation Commission at Tyler Mill at 10:00 for an hour of gentle family hiking. Those who wish may continue on for a longer hike until noon.
Take a right on Northford Rd. off of East Center St. Take your first right onto Tyler Mill Rd. and continue to parking areas near the bridge. We will be there to meet you! Please wear good sturdy shoes and dress to be in the woods, with warm clothes for a chilly autumn day. Please bring some water to drink during our hike, and leave your dogs at home. We’ll show you where the trails are, and you can come back another time and hike with your family dog!

Our fall film series “Unlikely Partners” continues this month with Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven, a story of love and murder told through the jaded voice of a child and the expressive images of nature.
In 1916, Chicago steelworker Bill (Richard Gere), his little sister Linda (Linda Manz) and girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams), flee to Texas, where they work the harvest at a wealthy, ailing farmer’s ranch. The farmer (playwright Sam Shepard) falls in love with Abby. Seeing it as his one real chance to escape perpetual poverty, Bill urges Abby to marry the sick man. Marriage, however, has more restorative powers, and the farmer has more magnetism, than Bill had planned.
Monday October 28th, 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room
From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles--just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry an English Lord.
Please join us for an informative and entertaining evening when we conduct our 133rd annual meeting with special guest Carol Wallace, author of To Marry an English Lord. Ms. Wallace will share some of the fascinating stories and anecdotes from her book and at the conclusion of her presentation, books will be available for purchase and signing. (Great Christmas gifts for those Downton Abbey fans in your life!)
