    Hilltown Families is the first place that I look when trying to figure out what’s going on in the Hilltowns and Valley. I love getting the e-mail weekly events and never worry about missing a fun event.
    Thanks for all you do,

    I love Hilltown Families, we have enjoyed so many events with our four year old daughter that we would’ve not know about. Thank you for connecting us with great events.

    it just happens we’re staying out for two nights in the Berkshires to take in Jenny Holzner’s talk at Williams college Museum of Art on March 15, MassMoca and Berkshire Museum so Hilltown Families is a great resource to keep up with events in Berkshires when we travel west or to motivate us to travel. This would be a great concert to attend.

    HI there…

    Hilltown families helps me find activities all over western MA. Although we live in Holyoke, we have family in Berkshire county and having the resources to find things to do means we spend more time with cousins that we might otherwise.
