Join the Greenway volunteers
Vernon - posted Apr, 19 2013
VERNON- On Wednesday, May 1, at 7 p.m. the Vernon Greenways Volunteers (VGV) will conduct their annual Spring Kickoff Meeting at the Teen Center located at 375 Hartford Turnpike (Route 30) in Vernon. We’ll first discuss what will be happening on the trails this year and the new structure of VGV. Our featured speaker is Jason Newton, who has been researching the Old Connecticut Path. The path was used by Thomas Hooker and his group in 1636 as they traveled from Boston to Hartford. It crosses Tolland, where it is still visible in some areas, and then passes through Vernon. One of the settlers who came with Hooker was John Talcott, ancestor of the Talcottville family. The Vernon Greenways Volunteers assist the Vernon Parks and Recreation Department through the maintenance, enhancement and proper use of the 30+ miles of trails in Vernon. The public is welcome, so please join us. Enter through the side door. Admission is free; dessert and coffee will be served following the presentations.
