Foliage season, Brimfield, MA and surrounding towns

Finding foliage wherever we looked near Brimfield, MA

We headed out to the Brimfield area for a bike ride recently, an overcast weekend morning. We hoped to find the Grand Trunk Trail parking area in Brimfield to be mostly empty. Despite the unfavorable weather, more cars than we were comfortable with had beaten us to the trail, so we moved on to Plan B–road biking a little farther west just off Route 20.

Upcoming Make Your Own Storybook Walk, Rice Reservation, Westwood


Fall is coming–encountering fall leaves along the trail at Rice Reservation in Westwood

It really helps, when leading a group of folks, to have some idea of where you are leading them! While not always possible, it allows us to flounder about, make mistakes with smaller audiences, and figure out strategies in a more relaxed manner.

We have planned a “Make Your Own Storybook” walk there Oct. 21, 12:45, right after church. The program is free, but registration is required. To register, please call the church office 781-461-1730 or contact Pastor Christine christinekeddy616@gmail.com  Continue reading
