The Pioneer Valley, sometimes called the 'Happy Valley,' is a unique blend of cultures, classes and spiritual beliefs. But unfortunately, like so many other towns and cities in America, the Valley's intellectual capacity to appreciate diversity, ensure equal opportunity, and share resources among all its citizenry exceeds its willingness to make this thought a reality. It is only through supporting our young people in their efforts to lead our community that we will create the Happy Valley so often fondly talked about.
