Save These Dates

Please save these dates for the exciting programs the Egremont & Mt Washington Councils on Aging have coming up in early April!

Wednesday, April 5th    12 noon - 2 pm, The Egremont Village Inn
Complimentary COA lunch & hands-on program on photography


If you have a cell phone with a camera, bring it. The presenter is West Stockbridge photographer Doane Perry whose fortunate combination of creativity and technological know-how make his photos special. We'll be taking photos and learning how to edit right then and there. You'll also see some of Doane's wonderful photos. He uses both a Fuji camera and an iPhone.

Sunday, April 9    4 - 6 pm, The Egremont Village Inn
Special Event: An Hour of Music


...with young Romanian-born painist Matei Varga. Mr Varga is a soloist who has played at Carnegie Hall, the White House Lawn and the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, among other venues. Reservations are needed as these special events sell out.
You can reserve your seat now for the April 5 complimentary lunch and photography program by calling Will Brinker at 528-0182 ext 17, or by email at wbrinker@egremont-ma.gov.



*   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 for 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.
