“Without Hilltown Families, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to experience the rich variety of family friendly events in Western Mass. There is so much to do but Hilltown Families breaks it down so I can choose things that would benefit my family.” – Lorna Lawrence (Wilbraham, MA)

Adam Brisben of Northampton, MA writes, “My family recently relocated to Western Mass. Hilltown Families has been an invaluable resource for learning about our new community and introducing it’s rich culture to us… We are very involved in hands-on activities on a regular basis and it’s our default way to spend time with our son. Crafts, museums, parks, workshops, anything. If it weren’t for Hilltown Families, we would definitely feel more isolated and would have a harder time learning about and taking part in our surroundings… Hilltown Families is the perfect resource for supporting OUR families, so long as we take the initiative to engage and explore. Hilltown Families is a wonderful resource and my family is extremely grateful as it has made a huge difference in helping us to establish our new roots.”
