We want you to know that The Berkshire Edge has launched a membership campaign intended to support the community while also moving The Edge to a next level of development. There are three levels of membership. At level 1, to encourage you to shop locally, you will be entered to win gift certificates from local businesses. At levels 2 and 3, part of your membership will go for free advertising for the Berkshire nonprofit of your choice. This represents an extension of what The Edge has been doing all along...trying to use this locally owned, regional publication to support both the business and the nonprofit communities in the Berkshires.
Can you help to spread the word? Nonprofits should start mobilizing their boards. Members can support The Edge and their favorite nonprofit at the same time.
The snow has arrived at the Bidwell House Museum and while the house may look quiet, the museum staff are busy planning for the 2018 season. With new programs and a new accessible entrance, we can't wait to welcome you back on Memorial Day weekend. In the meantime, bring your snow shoes or hop onto your cross-country skis as you explore the winter woods. Don't forget, the museum's trails are open year round!
Thank you for supporting the Bidwell House Museum. Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a happy New Year!
