Congressman Neal to Announce Support of Blackstone Valley National Park Initiative
Northbridge, MA: Please join Congressman Richard Neal, this Monday, October 10th (Columbus Day), 11 am at Lookout Rock on Quaker Highway in Northbridge to show support of the legislation to create a National Park in the Blackstone Valley. Congressman Neal will be meeting supporters at Lookout Rock and will then explore some of the beauty of the Blackstone River Valley's surrounding trails.
"For many years, I have been an enthusiastic and outspoken supporter of the Blackstone Valley Heritage Corridor. It is a special place that celebrates the region's history, heritage and culture. It is also a magnificent natural resource that is enjoyed by thousands of people each year. I look forward to visiting Lookout Rock in Northbridge on Monday and expressing my strong support to the effort in Congress to make the corridor part of the Natural Park System," said Congressman Richard E. Neal.
Predicted weather is a beautiful Fall Day. No better time for a walk in our Valley!
Come join us! Let Congressman Neal know you support a National Park in the Blackstone Valley.
