ADAMS, Mass. — More than 1,000 people took advantage of Monday's mild and sunny weather to make the ascent to the top of the state's highest peak during the annual Greylock Ramble.

ProAdams reports that near 1,200 people registered at the summit of Mount Greylock with more making there way to the top as the day went on.

The oldest hiker again was Caroline Brazeau from North Adams. Brazeau is 90 years old.

The three youngest to reach the summit were all four months old. Although Myles Mancino of Cheshire, and Annalise Stokes and Liam Brown of Adams may have had a little help, they still made it to the top.

David Slick and Lisa Bollinger traveled the farthest to hike Mount Greylock and traveled to Adams from Golden, Colo. 

The Ramble dates back to 1967 and is more recently partnered with a Ramblefest, a party that takes place at the Visitors Center day before.

Adams to Consider Bellevue Cemetery Expansion

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
ADAMS, Mass. — The Cemetery Commission will consider a five-year capital improvement plan and feasibility study to inform the possible expansion of Bellevue Cemetery.
 
Cemetery Commissioner Bruce Shepley asked the commission last week to consider future projects to include in a five-year capital improvement plan for the town’s cemeteries. 
 
"I am asking you to put thinking caps on and in the next month come with what you would like to see done at the cemeteries," he said. "Bottom line is what are your thoughts about capital improvements."
 
Shepley said the commission did produce an improvement plan some years ago, however, he has yet to find it. He added that the Cemetery Department still has funds it can expend to improve the cemeteries but the commissioners would need to figure out how low they can draw this fund.
