Gosh, I love Autumn in New England.   There's a chill in the air (well, sort of) - especially at night.   Leaves are popping with their beautiful fall hues.   Then there are the fall decorations - pretty mums, funky gourds and happy pumpkins.   And the fragrances of hot apple cider, and baked apple & spiced pumpkin pies - big yum.  It all puts me in a right good mood.

A quick note: last week's rain postponed a number of events.   Stay up to date with cancellations and postponements on our Facebook Page, as well as on our events calendar under 'announcements'.
