Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?
These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.
Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...
...seems to be working so far

Riverland Clean Up May 30th
The Community Preservation Committee is planning a Clean Up day Morning for the Riverland. This property, which runs from 51/55 Holland Road to Stallion Hill Road and runs along the south side of the Quinebaug River, needs clean up of debris, including tires, furniture, and houseware dumpings.
We will meet Light Rain or Shine on Saturday, May 30th at 9:00am, in the Old Sturbridge Village parking lot closest to Stallion Hill Road.
If you join us, we recommend that you wear gloves. We will load pick up trucks with the debris, which will then be hauled to the Recycle Center.
Please forward this on to your respective boards/committees and anyone else who may wish to lend a hand.
Thank you for considering,
Community Preservation Committee Chair
