You are invited to the Hilltown CDC Annual Meeting
Save Saturday June 1, from 10 AM to 5 PM, to help us celebrate spring, the hilltown community, music, art, food, sustainability, kids, families and more. The Hilltown Spring Festival will feature 10 musical performances on two stages from 11:15 until 5:00 (click here for performance schedule), great food from local vendors, children’s activities all day long, a mid-day dance around the May pole, and exhibits of products and services from many local vendors, including a Focus on Sustainability.

Last year 2,000 people came to celebrate spring and to enjoy each other and our community. There’s still time to sign up to volunteer, to be a sponsor (click here for sponsorship form), or to reserve a booth (click here for registration form).
Admission is $8 per person; children 12 and under are free. All proceeds go to benefit the programs and services of Hilltown CDC, including business development and support programs for low income local elders. See you on June 1!
Support is provided by business sponsors, by the exhibiting businesses, and by grants from the Local Cultural Councils of the Towns of Ashfield, Chester, Chesterfield, Conway, Cummington, Goshen, Middlefield, Plainfield, Washington, Westhampton, Williamsburg, Windsor and Worthington, local agencies supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Chesterfield Energy Efficiency Grant Program
Chesterfield Residential Energy Efficiency Grant Program Offers up to $1,000 per Household for Energy Improvements
Chesterfield residents are invited to apply for up to $1,000 per household to help pay for home energy improvements. This grant program has been designed to supplement the Western Massachusetts Electric Company Mass Save residential incentive program, which offers a 75% incentive up to $2,000 toward the cost of installing insulation and weatherization upgrades. Taken together, Chesterfield residents are eligible for up to $3,000 to help improve the energy performance of their homes.
The Chesterfield Residential Energy Efficiency Grant can also be applied toward energy efficiency and renewable energy items that are NOT listed in the Mass Save energy assessment. Town of Chesterfield program partners at the Hilltown CDC and Pioneer Valley Planning Commission can also point you toward other available incentives like rebates for efficient heating, solar hot water, solar PV and microwind systems; as well as the Mass Save Heat Loan Program, which provides a 0% loan up to $25,000 for energy efficiency upgrades and solar hot water systems.
In 2011, the Town of Chesterfield was designated a Massachusetts “Green Community” by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources. The Chesterfield Residential Energy Efficiency Grant Program is an initiative to help reduce energy used in Chesterfield. Learn more at www.townofchesterfieldma.com
