VISION is a local, civic, volunteer and not-for-profit group. The organization is made up of community residents of the towns and villages of Highland Falls, Fort Montgomery, and West Point. The group motivation is civic pride and a love of the Hudson Valley. Our goals are widespread and ever-changing, but paramount is our on-going efforts to keep our communities vital through many quality of life initiatives.Our energies have and will continue to be focused on projects and events that add to the spirit, pride, and worth of our residents and visitors.
VISION membership is open to all interested citizens and we welcome the energy, ideas, and initiative they would bring. We are, of course, proud of our past accomplishments, but we are always open to new suggestions. From our group's inception, the anthropologist Margaret Mead's words have inspired our efforts: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens, can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever does.”

Reception for the USMA Plebe class: this R-Day social for the new Plebes and their families, is an opportunity for the community to welcome them to their home away from home and to learn about them and their families, as well as to share our town's opportunities, offerings and events.
