Now that winter is finally ending, this is a great time to get out and join us at one of these community events in the Upper Valley. You have a wide range of events to choose from; a parent discussion night with Cindy Pierce, a viewing of the movie Anonymous People, our annual spin-a-thon fundraiser, an Arts and Music fest and the spring Hartford Community Coalition forum-there is something for everyone. 

I hope to see you this spring,
