There is a monthly meeting scheduled for March 17 beginning at 1 PM. Guest speaker Tom Riley will discuss a little known bit of Rockland history. Happy Valley was a farm near Spring Valley that housed children who needed a home. The children were placed there for many reasons but the important thing is that they had a happy home, learned a trade and went to school. The residence had a working farm and its own school. Many Rockland chidlren passed through this facility. The site was replaced with a county golf course that is active today.
Tom Riley is a writer, photographer and speaker. He will talk about his experiences and others who lived in Happy Valley.
