News and notes, Friday June 3rd, 2022
In case you were wondering, the count for COVID in Williamstown, as of yesterday, is five. Information from our Health Inspector today at noon…
Still, on the COVID front, the Cathedral of the Beloved North has partnered with CHP to host a mobile vaccine clinic on 6/7/22 from 1-3 pm in the parking lot near All Saints Church (behind the bus stop on Main Street in North Adams). COVID Vaccines are available to those 5yrs+. First boosters available to those 5yrs+ and second boosters are now available to those 50yrs+ or severely immunocompromised. Appointments can be made by calling (413) 528-0457. Walk-ins are also welcome. It is recommended that people bring their vaccine card to update. If you’re going, you should wear a shirt that allows the vaccination team to access your upper arm easily.
I’d like to call your attention to a note on the Williamstown Municipal website entitled “DIRE and Select Board Joint Statement”. Recently a member of the Williamstown community sent a very threatening email to the DIRE Committee. The Williamstown Police Department, Massachusetts State police and the FBI responded, investigated and the individual who sent the message was contacted regarding this issue. You can read about this on the website, www.williamstownma.gov.
The note speaks for itself and does not require further commentary from me. I hope that we will all join together in rejecting this kind of behavior as reprehensible and unacceptable. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, we’re happy to entertain differences but threats are not welcome here at any time. Period. Enough said.
Remember folks, the Exercise class with Judy begins Monday the 6th at 11:30.
McCann nursing students will be here Tuesday to talk about Strokes and TIA events at 1:00. We’ll be having subs at 12:30 again, this time courtesy of our friend Lee Jaggi from Health New England. There is an opportunity to select your sandwich Turkey, chicken, tuna or veggie so let us know by noon on Monday what you’re interested in.
Richard Meyer and his band will be here Friday afternoon to entertain and a catered luncheon by Bezzles BBQ from Adams will be happening at 2:00-that’s TWO o’clock folks. Look at it as a fun afternoon with an early dinner. We don’t know Bezzles, they’re new, so come out and support them!
Finally, don’t forget the art exhibit to support Louison House tomorrow! Real Eyes Gallery and Berkshire artists Debi Pendell, Diane Sawyer, Sarah Sutro, and Betty Vera are supporting the work of Louison House to combat homelessness in Northern Berkshire County. They’re offering an exhibition of works which can be purchased with 50% of all artwork sales at this exhibition, “A Sense of Place,” going directly to Louison House. Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 5-7 p.m. Artwork will be available for sale from June 3 – 30, 2022 at the gallery (Park Street in Adams) and on the website: https://www.realeyesgallery.com/
Good weekend to you all!
