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.

Williamstown Fire District Seeks Candidates for Governing Body Spots

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Fire District has targeted Oct. 29 for a special election to fill two new seats on the Prudential Committee.

Now it just needs candidates to fill those seats.
 
In 2018, district voters OKed a proposal to expand the three-member committee that oversees the district. The enabling legislation to change the district's charter was approved in Boston at the end of the most recent session.
 
Rather than wait until its regular election in May, the committee wants to open the new positions as soon as possible, which means an aggressive election calendar that would see nomination papers available in early September and due by the middle of the month.
 
"Nomination papers need to be back and certified 49 days prior to the election," district Clerk/Treasurer Corydon Thurston told the committee at Wednesday's monthly meeting.
