We want to hear your thoughts on a few ideas, as we look ahead to a busy summer season, and even further ahead to 2020!
Please take a moment to read and answer the questions below, feeling free to briefly elaborate in the space provided. Your answers will help us gain a better understanding of what is important to your business or non-profit, positioning us to better serve our membership in the future. All answers are confidential, and a report will be generated by the numbers, which we will share with you.

The Story of Chris Herren Presented to Promote Community Conversation and Commitment in the Fight Against the Opioid Crisis

(GREAT BARRINGTON, MA): On Thursday, May 23 at 6:30 p.m., a free community presentation, “Prevention Starts With ALL: The Chris Herren Story,” will take place at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center at 14 Castle Street in Great Barrington. The program is presented by Grace Church and Fairview Hospital. Pre-registration is not required.
May 8, 2019 Salisbury, CT. The Center for Canine Behavior Studies, Inc.’s latest study Demographics and Comorbidity of Behavior Problems in Dogs has been published in the Journal of Veterinary Medicine.
The study findings provide insight into the magnitude of owner-reported canine behavior problems encountered by owners. It is hoped that findings will encourage veterinarians to further incorporate aspects of behavior problem management into their daily work. More important, emerging findings from a follow up study with owners having problem dogs could make a significant impact in preventing misbehaving dogs from entering the shelter “system” in the first place, and helping dogs surrendered because of behavior, escape the “system” through adoption and thus avoid euthanasia Click here to read full press-release.

Non-Profits: Telling Your Story and Increasing Donations
Being involved in a non-profit is a great way to give back to the community - whether you are the founder, an employee, a volunteer, or a board member - each role is just as important as the next. While the responsibilities may vary, one thing that every role has in common is raising awareness within the community about the non-profit. Unlike for-profit businesses, most non-profits need to market their vision, mission and services to not only the people they serve, but to those who support them - their donors. Continue Reading

In the year 1616 Burckhard Grossmann, a merchant from Jena, Germany, after surviving a near death experience, in gratitude commissioned 16 composers from central Germany to write settings of Psalm 116.

Included also in the concert are settings of Psalm 116 from the early Renaissance to the Baroque times by J.S. Bach, Adrian Willaert, Orlando di Lasso, and Johann Bach. Three new musical settings and texts paraphrasing Psalm 116 have also been commissioned by Crescendo. These include world premieres of works by composers Jonny Priano, Dr. Cheng-Chia Wu and Juan Mesa, on poems by Bruce McEver, Frances Roth and Juliet Mattila. 

Performers are the Crescendo Chorus, soloists and Period strings, brass and basso continuo, directed by Christine Gevert. Performances are 6pm on Friday, May 17 at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, MA and at 6pm on Saturday, May 18 at Trinity Church in Lakeville, CT.
