October 13, 2018, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM @ Downtown Amherst and the general Amherst area
On October 13th, we invite you to paint windows donated by our generous business community with Fall and Halloween themes. Paint one window by yourself or paint one as a team (3 persons). Register by October 5 before 4:30 p.m. Registrations received after October 5 will be placed on a “waiting list” and given windows as they are available. (Please let us know at the time of registration if you and your team are willing to wash your window after Halloween. Some merchants appreciate this greatly.) Windows are assigned by lottery and group size. Please understand that there are more participating businesses than just those on the two main streets of town, so let’s beautify ALL the windows with Halloween art this year!

Treat yourself to an unforgettable slideshow as Peter Christoph shares his experiences looking for wildlife, by land and by boat, at the beautiful and pristine Quabbin Reservoir. A rich diversity of birds call the Quabbin their home, the main attraction being the common loon and bald eagle families that nest here. You’ll also learn about the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir, including a glimpse into the lost towns which gave way to this unlikely wilderness area.
