WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williams men’s ice hockey team is soliciting donations from individuals and families in the Williams community, as well as local businesses, to support the Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund (MSLF).

As part of the "Goals to Assist the Children of Fallen Soldiers," effort, the team is asking people to pledge a donation for every goal the team scores at home this season.

At the end of the season, the players will collect the donations and deliver 100 percent of the money to MSLF to support the college education of the children of Massachusetts soldiers who have lost their lives serving the country.

To date, the Ephs have already secured 25 donor pledges amounting to nearly $100 per goal. The Ephs have set a team goal of raising $5,000 this season. The Ephs will continue to accept donations throughout the season.


Those who would like to support "Goals to Assist" can contact Zach Miller at 10zcm@williams.edu.

Local business supporters include Where’d You Get That?!, Ephporium, Goff’s, Papa Charlie’s, Papyri Books and TGL Photos.

Mount Greylock Gets Final Tab for School Building Project

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The final bill to Williamstown and Lanesborough for the construction project at Mount Greylock Regional School came in at $33 million, according to a final audit presented to the School Committee on Thursday evening.
 
The Massachusetts School Building Authority gave the district its final audit on July 28. Superintendent Jason McCandless told the committee that the final cost of the renovation/addition project at the middle/high school is $64,693,600, just more than $44,000 less than the budget approved back in 2016.
 
But the MSBA's contribution is about $1.5 million lower than the maximum grant projected by the state agency at the outset of the project.
 
McCandless, who joined the district well after the school opened in September 2018, said he discussed the final numbers with Lanesborough's Stephen Wentworth and Williamstown's Hugh Daley, who served on the finance subcommittee of the School Building Committee that oversaw the project.
