Williams Music Calendar Wins Printing Award

Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN - The fall 2007 calendar released by the Williams College music department has been named an award winner in a graphic design competition by the Printing Industries of New England. The calendar was produced by ArrowPress Inc. in Pittsfield and designed by Erin Keiser-Clark, a resident of Williamstown. ArrowPress submitted the calendar in the Awards of Excellence Competition held by the Printing Industries of New England. The competition attracted 340 entries from 56 printing and imaging companies. Judging was based on artistic criteria, including clarity and neatness, paper and ink selection, and sharpness and richness of color. The college's music calendar has a dramatic new look. It uses fiery colors, vivid photos, and elegant calligraphy, and displays them against a black backdrop. The calendar opens like a brochure to list the music department's events. David S. Kechley is chair of the college's music department.

But it did allow a resident to take advantage of the bylaw that resulted from the most contentious issue that faced another town board in the last 12 months.
Billy Preite withdrew his request for a special permit to operate a sporting goods store on North Hoosac Road, obviating the need for the board to continue a stormy public hearing that began in September.
In a letter to the board, Preite cited the hostility of those who objected to his proposal to open the store, which would have included a line of collectible firearms.
