History is our story in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. To help preserve and pass on compelling stories, The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) and the Thompson Historical Society (THS) have scheduled the second quarterly program of the year to share resources and expertise. Each quarter, volunteers and staff from different historical societies, libraries, and other like-minded organizations present their specialties so that all participants can learn from each other instead of duplicating efforts and energies.
The Thompson Historical Society will host the next session on Friday, May 20th, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Ryscavage Auditorium, Tourtellotte Memorial High School’s 1909 Building, 785 Riverside Dr., Thompson, CT. Formed in 1968, THS works to preserve Thompson’s records, artifacts and buildings. Volunteers will share their knowledge about local lithic (stone) structures and Indian cairns. The age-old question “to share or to not share” our historical finds may arise. Contact Marcy at 860-774-3300 or email Marcy@tlgv.org to RSVP, to learn more, or to host a historical collaboration session!
The Last Green Valley’s Facebook page and website, www.thelastgreenvalley.org, offer information about TLGV programs, volunteer opportunities, partnerships, contests, an events calendar and more. The Last Green Valley is a National Heritage Corridor – the last stretch of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington, D.C. The Last Green Valley works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. We help you to care for it, enjoy it and pass it on!
