This Month, The ACC RECOMMENDS:

Check out an exhibit of Visual Arts works by Agawam students!
The exhibition, which showcases works by students in grades K - 6, is presented by the Agawam Schools' Visual Arts Program. It is updated about every 6 months, and is on display in the lobby of the Agawam Post Office, 600 Suffield Street, Agawam.
Special thanks to Agawam postmaster, Dan Czepial, for approving the exhibit!
