Another successful Massachusetts Walking Tour has been completed – visiting 15 towns across the state, organizing free community concerts to showcase local musicians, artists and authors. The troupe led guided hikes through the Blackstone Valley, many of which are highlighted in Marjorie Turner Hollman’s book Easy Walks In Massachusetts. They also commemorated Henry David Thoreau’s 200th birthday by retracing his steps from A Walk To Wachusett.
