Northern Berkshire Coalition Recognizes Faithful 8 June , 2011

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Faith in the community and the power of the faithful to support it was on display at the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition‘s annual meeting on Tuesday.

A packed room at the Williams Inn applauded a local Catholic charity as the annual Northern Berkshire Hero, lauded the work of an interfaith group and gave a standing ovation to the coalition board’s outgoing president, Rabbi Jeffrey Goldwasser.

The coalition is marking its 25th year of strengthening neighborhoods and families through a network of private, public, nonprofit and faith-based organizations. Coalition Executive Director Alan Bashevkin thanked the coalition’s many partners and noted some of the “coalition legends” who had been with the organization since its early years.
