    Hilltown Families is a one stop shop for goings on in the Hilltowns, fostering connectedness in an area where it’s easy to feel isolated.

    Congratulations to Kimberly Jones of Westhampton, MA! Kimberly has won a pair of tickets to be used either day, July 20th or 21st, at the Green River Festival in Greenfield, MA!

    Thank you to everyone who participated! We would like to offer everyone who shared their love of Hilltown Families one of our new Hilltown Families bumper stickers (while supplies last)! We know what you’re thinking… I want tickets to the Green River Festival, not a stinkin’ bumper sticker! Well, this time only Kimberly gets tickets, but this month we will be offering tickets for a Parents’ Night Out to see Yes, and in August we’ll have tickets to see Dropkick… both at Mountain Park in Holyoke… plus, we have another chance to win tickets for a Parents’ Night Out the evening before the Green River Festival to see Rubblebucket at the Shea Theatre in Turners Falls on our Facebook page right now (click the banner below)!

    See, there’s loads of more opportunities! In the meantime, if you love Hilltown Families, help us spread the word about this great local resource to parents who haven’t discovered us yet by adding one of our bumper stickers to the back side of your car. Then we can honk at each other when we see one another out and about! It doesn’t beat a weekend at the Green River Festival out, but it’s better than bank stickers on the back windows, don’t you think?

    Email your mailing address to hilltownfamilies@gmail.com and we’ll drop a bumper sticker in the mail pronto!
