Falls Village

FALLS VILLAGE — Michael Hanlon Jr., a junior at Housatonic Valley Regional High School, is cleaning up a hometown hang-out spot in Falls Village one rhododendron at a time. As part of his community-minded Eagle Scout project, Hanlon decided to clear branches and debris from a public area around Falls Village’s visitors sign, a spot he says he often rides his bike past. The landscaping effort includes new plants in the area, as well as cleaning up the visitor signs so it can once again  become a welcoming for viewing town notices. 

Hanlon hopes to conclude this...

FALLS VILLAGE — There have been bleak moments in recent weeks, when it felt like the snow would never stop and the ice would never melt. Certainly, the calendar promised that the first day of spring would be March 20.
