*   SBETC, the Southern Berkshire Elderly Transportation Corporation, is a non-profit organization that serves South County residents 55 and older, and disabled of any age. They are a door to door service, meaning they escort you from your door right to the van. Drivers will gladly help you with your coat, tie your shoes, and carry groceries. Typical round trip cost from Egremont to Great Barrington is $10.
*   SBETC is now going north of Great Barrington for medical needs. This means their van will take you to a doctor's appointment in Lenox, or Pittsfield. For now, this service is being limited to Tuesdays, but they want to work this out, so if you need another day, let them know. The round trip charge will be $15.
*   Call to make an appointment: (413) 528-4773

*   The Council on Aging has received a small grant from the state to promote a Keep Moving Walking Program. We will need people to help to organize these walks. We want to develop safe indoor and outdoor spaces for year long walking.
