"Hilltown Destinations" 2017 JLBA Map

JLBA has created a regional map of Hiking Trailheads, Businesses, and Annual Regional Events. The 18" x 24" map encompasses the towns of Middlefield, Becket, Chester, Huntington, Russell, Blandford, Granville, Montgomery, Worthington, Chesterfield, Cummington and Windsor, as well as areas west of the Columbia Greenway in Westfield. All JLBA Member Businesses can choose to be located "on the map", or only in the business listings. A limited number of spaces for business-card sized coupons will be available for $250. The first map has been mailed "Every Door Direct" (EDD) to the 12 Hilltowns in May of 2017. Additional copies will be made available to JLBA members for distribution to the public. An electronic version of "Hilltown Destinations" will be available on the upcoming new JLBA website. The Deadline for membership and submission of business information is MARCH 15th, 2017. Coupon spaces are available on a first-come first-served basis. If you would like to download the informational flyer, it is available here.

Send your completed "Hilltown Destinations" form (Download here), JLBA membership application form (if applicable, download here) and any payments to:

JLBA, PO Box 19, Huntington, MA 01050
