Public Event: A Day of Sharing 10/28/17


The Leverett Alliance’s Bridging Committee is hosting over a dozen Kentuckians from coal country for a weekend of cultural exchange and dialogue October 27-29. Our hope is to find common ground and shared dreams upon which to build bridges of understanding. Our guests are staying in our homes, will participate in closed dialogue sessions, and will have a chance to enjoy some of the sights of the Pioneer Valley. Please join us for our day of activities open to the public – come meet our guests from Letcher County, Kentucky.
