After a morning of community service Monday on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, those who took the day on instead of the day off met at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts to recognize local community leader and addiction assistance advocate Kenna Waterman.
Event organizer Kathy Keeser is encouraging those who can shovel out of their driveways to bundle up warm and head to Venable for warm beverages to start the day before dispersing to off-site activities or joining in those in the gym.
The members of the Boston architectural firm were there to get an idea of how to revitalize a path leading from the Brayon Hill Apartments to the school and attached Northern Berkshire Family YMCA. But they were soon engaged in looking at all the possibilities for getting to and from the playground below the school.
Alcombright, surrounded by local leaders, the MLK Committee and members of the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition on a stage in Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' Venable Hall, said the recognition was "humbling, heartwarming and, at some level, deeply spiritual."
