Print Story | Email Story

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Berkshire Family & Individual Resources will host its annual meeting on Friday, April 29, at the Williams Inn.

The breakfast, set to begin at 7:30 a.m., will include the presentation of several awards for employee recognition, as well as the recognition of the community employer of the year. Additionally, the chairwoman of the board will offer remarks on the organization’s continued success and growth through 2015.

This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Stacia Bissell. A lifelong Berkshire resident, Bissell is a former educator who lives with an acquired brain injury. Her story surrounding her brain injury is a powerful one of perseverance.

She currently volunteers her time with the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts, where she co-facilitates a monthly support group and assists with the monthly publication of their newsletter and completes other special projects as needed. She is also a website designer/developer.

BFAIR has seen significant growth in homecare, residential and habilitative services during 2015. Major milestones include the opening of a satellite campus on Roberts Drive and expansions throughout Berkshire County. BFAIR’s recent annual campaign has raised more than $15,000 to date.

To attend the annual meeting, please RSVP by April 22 to Carol Fox by calling 413.664.9382 ext. 40 or emailing cfox@bfair.org.  Online registrations are accepted at www.bfair.org.  A suggested donation of $10 may be made at the door.
