West County Newest Attraction - Its a Maze!

I was reading the Shelburne Falls and West County Independent and was pleased to see the Hicks Family is going to have a corn maze at their farm on Route 2.  This is a great idea and I'm sure people will love it.  This July the family will cut the pattern of the maze in the field with the hopes of opening up to the public in September.  Their field is located on the corner of Route 2 and Burrington Road in Charlemont which is next to the Charlemont Academy.   Looking forward to seeing the new attraction in town!
