MANY, MANY THANKS to everyone who supported our 13th Annual Community Spelling Bee, held on Thursday, November 29th! With such generous support and enthusiasm, this year we raised more money for educational projects than ever before. Check out the Spelling Bee and Costume winners on our Facebook page. More photos coming soon!
THE MARY LYON FOUNDATION
The Mary Lyon Foundation is inspired by and takes its name from western Massachusetts native, Mary Lyon—a 19th century pioneer in women’s education and advocate for opportunity and quality education for all.
It is with great pride that the organization recently celebrated its 28th year of providing educational programs, events, and services to the hilltown communities. We will continue to identify the needs of our schools, and actively find ways to create and fund programs to assist in those needs.
The Mary Lyon Foundation Inc. was established in 1990 and incorporated on March 8, 1991. It is a community based 501(c)3 non-profit organization, supporting all aspects of quality education in the towns of Ashfield, Buckland, Charlemont, Colrain, Hawley, Heath, Plainfield, Rowe, and Shelburne.
