Thank you Dana Bixby - Architecture, Trinity Engineering, and BEK Associates, for your generous donations of professional services.
We'd like to thank...

The Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, has said, “Every wall has two lives.” Architecture is about how we make openings in the walls around us or between us. Openings give us the possibility of moving. Openings help us see. Openings connect the world on two sides of a wall. When we move through a wall, we know more because we know both sides. In moving through space, along a path that is created, I am grateful when movement and space find each other because of a wall and its openings and we have discovered the excitement of architecture.

ADAMS, Mass. — More than 100 athletes will be running and pedaling there way through Adams on Sunday, July 28th, for the Pedal and Plod Race.

The event returns for 36th year and organizers hope to attract even more bikers and runners this year. Some 90 two-person teams and another 40 individual "Iron Person" participated last year.
"We hope to attract more participants," organizer Brad Schueckler said. "This is an important fund-raiser for Northern Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, and we love the way the communities that we serve have come out to participate in this event year after year."
Runners will start near the Town Common and run 4.4 miles to Lime, East and East Hoosac before returning; bikers will pedal 22 miles through Adams and Cheshire along Routes 8 and 116 (riding two 11 mile loops).
"Our race is a unique and challenging one ... Participants range from 12-year-olds to folks in their 80s," he said. "It is important to us to maintain and engage others to share in those activities. The Pedal and Plod attracts participants from many different areas of the country as well as our local athletes."
Online registration will be available, but same-day registration is also available: $55 Iron Person, $65 two-person team.

Pre-registration fees are $50 Iron Person, $60 two-person team.

 

Registration and bib pickup for registered attendees is Sunday morning at the Elks Club on Center Street beginning at 7 a.m. The race begins at 8:30 a.m.

 


Categories are ages 18 and younger; 19-30; 31-40, 41-50; 51-60; 61-70, and Masters for those age 70 and older.
Prizes will be awarded for Overall Team Finishers, Overall Iron Man, Overall Iron Woman, and top three finishers in each category, determined by youngest member of a team.
Schueckler urged people to compete or just come to cheer on the athletes.
"We want people to participate or just celebrate the participants and enjoy the day in our town," he said.

The annual Christmas Tree Showcase was held this year on Saturday, December 1 at the First Congregational Church in Williamstown. 

Our goal was to raise funds as well as to educate the community about Habitat for Humanity and to give back to the community during the holiday season by offering a wonderful display of trees for all to enjoy.

The Showcase is part of the annual Williamstown Holiday Walk. Members of the community, schools, churches, local businesses and community organizations are invited to purchase miniature artificial trees for $7 each and to decorate them for the showcase and raffle.

We would like to thank the many, many individuals, businesses, schools, non-profit organizations and youth organizations who purchase and decorate trees for us every year. We thank our sellers of trees: Alton & Westall, Goodman's Jewelers, Mt. Williams Greenhouses, St. John's Episcopal Church, First Congregational Church in Williamstown and DeLego Jewelry Store, and Moulton's Spectacle Shop in North Adams. We also thank Aladco Linens for their yearly donation of tablecloths for the showcase, Williams College Dining Services for providing cookies and cider, and the First Congregational Church for hosting the event. We greatly appreciate your support and generosity of time and money.

Thanks to all 2018 Christmas Tree Donors, including those who donated anonymously.
