News and Notes, Wednesday May 11th, 2022

The booster clinic with the CHP Mobile Unit is back on and they will be here next Monday, May 16th from 10:00 to Noon. The folks at CHP tell me that they will contact everyone who originally signed up to reset their appointments.  If you haven’t heard from them the number to call to arrange a booster is 413-528-0457. They have told me that at this moment they have a few openings so act quickly folks, they may fill up fast and they are not likely to accept walk in visits, if you need the booster you don’t want to find this out the hard way.

A while ago we told you that we were working with a couple Williams students to develop a community survey to gather information about what you’d like to see offered at the WCOA. Those students, Ivy and Niko, have been essential in helping to design and implement the surveys. As their semester here ends we would like to extend to them our sincere thanks for helping us with this process. It wouldn’t have been as successful without their help.

Now, about that survey…

Here’s the electronic version of our survey! Click  here; Paper versions are available at the Harper Center and at other selected locations. Some folks who are not on this mailing list will find one in the mail with self addressed stamps for easy return to us. This will likely happen next week.If you’d prefer a paper version, give us a call here at 413.458.8250 and we’ll get one to you. It’s a simple, uncomplicated survey. Help us and fill it out OK?Or, give us a call with your ideas. It all works!

They’re asking you to bring a water bottle, gloves and they haven’t said it but the ticks are out there, I’ve seen them, so you might think about bug spray!. If you have questions you can reach them here;
