Wait - that is the wrong speech.
One score and zero years ago, The Last Green Valley became a National Heritage Corridor.
That is 20 years to you and me.
Here is a shot of mine I doctored up. It is TLGV float for the 2013 Holiday Dazzle Light Parade ~ our pre-parade gathering. We were grand marshals in celebration of kicking off the 20th anniversary of TLGV.
20 years of what? Two things - The Last Green Valley is a 35-town National Heritage Corridor in eastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts, and it’s also your member-supported, non-profit stewardship organization working locally to celebrate our heritage, conserve our natural resources, and respect our working lands.

I love where I live!
I am not only a member of The Last Green Valley, but I'm a volunteer ranger, too.
You can be, too! Join for dirt cheap, and enjoy the many benefits, most of all, living in a still mostly unpopulated area - approximately 78% still remains as forests and farm lands.
This membership makes a great gift for family and friends, too! Hint, hint, hint! Be creative and generous in your gift giving this year, making The Last Green Valley's 20th year a great one!

I am a Putnamaniac that loves living in and volunteering for The Last Green Valley!
