Saturday was a beautiful day on the Hardwick common for the 252nd Annual Hardwick Community Fair. Friday night was cool, but the temperature and brief shower didn’t deter folks from coming out to the common. The Fair was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new neighbors. This year we had a wide variety of tee shirt colors to choose from and plenty of Preserve maps to share! If you didn’t make it this year, be sure to put it on your calendar for 2015. A good time that shouldn’t be missed!!

5th Annual Station Loop Ramble
The Station Loop Ramble was a terrific trail and road race on October 9th in New Braintree and Hardwick. The mist and rain didn't slow the runners down at all, and the 5-mile course record was broken again: 28 minutes and 53 seconds!

Challenge Goal Exceeded on #GivingTuesday
With your enthusiastic participation, we exceeded our goal to raise $5k in one day! THANK YOU!!
Our anonymous donor will match each donation, up to the $5,000 goal. Which means that we raised over $12,000 on November 29th. That is 1/4 of our year-end target of $50,000, and a great start to the most important fundraising time of the year for the East Quabbin Land Trust.
Thank you for participating and supporting the East Quabbin Land Trust as part of #GivingTuesday. Your gift makes it possible to continue conserving the land and preserving our heritage.
