We filled them in on what work we had been doing; the website, facebook, community meetings. Gave them some background information as to what had led up to the creation of our group to begin with, and gave them ideas on how they can help spread the word!
CRC has given us their full support and asked us to come back to their monthly meetings and provide an update to their members.
They are such a great group and have done so much for the Congamond Lakes community. If you are not following their activity yet please do so.
One thing that came out of the meeting, which I found particularly inspiring, was a comment about how even though the issues and concerns we all have are very daunting and real, it has raised the community spirit! It has gotten people involved in town politics. (in both Suffield and Southwick) We are growing as a community and building new ties with our neighbors. It's important for us to see the good in all of this and I think that was a great thing to walk away with.
You can find out all about their upcoming events and a schedule of their meetings at their website listed below.
