September 23, 2017 - WE NEED YOU! 

Cornwallians of all ages and friends will come together to "Clean-Up" trash along selected town roads and "Green-Up" our town library with a mass planting of daffodils.

We are seeking volunteers to 'Clean-Up' along town roads and 'Green-Up' our library with daffodils. If you're interested in the cleaning-up and greening-up activities, or to help us deliver the event and the picnic, please click the link below. WE NEED YOU!

Volunteers are urged to pre-register as we need this info to plan the day and make it as big and successful as it can be. We also need to identify Road Captains - people who will lead the teams along the roads to be cleaned up and be traffic wardens as the clean-up happens, helpers for the picnic, and more.

 A screening of The Civic Life Project film Dawn of Decline will be held at the Cornwall Public Library on Sunday, October15th at 3PM. The 10 minute short was produced at the CLP summer workshop with 7 students from around the state of CT. Dawn of Decline looks at the challenges small towns like Cornwall and Falls Village face with declining school enrollment. There will be an information panel/ conversation. We hope to bring the citizens of our two towns together to learn about this issue. The program will be sponsored by Cornwall Library, Hunt Library in Falls Village and the Civic Life Project.
