To the Editor:

The third annual “Discover the Hilltowns: Farms and Artisans Tour” on Sept. 14 and 15 was very well attended, as more people head for the Hilltowns each year for this self-guided driving adventure in the countryside.  

I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who participated:  the farmers, artisans, and other contributors and their families who welcomed the public to their farms, homes and studios; the folks who came out to visit our area and support our rich variety of colorful, fascinating and instructive destinations along the way; and the Helderberg Hilltowns Association members who make this fun and worthwhile event happen. 

Many thanks to all for making this such a success, and for showing our guests how much we have to be proud of here in the Hilltowns!
