DALTON, Mass. — In reaction to Gov. Baker;s recent order requiring all Massachusetts residents to wear face covering when they are out in public beginning Wednesday May 6, Berkshire Money Management has secured 5,000 hand-sewn cloth facemasks to make available to the community. 

The bulk of these masks will be distributed Thursday, May 7, from noon to 4 p.m. at Berkshire Money Management, located at 161 Main St. in Dalton.

"The first phase of our donations was to help health-care workers until they could get their supply chains in order," said BMM founder and CEO Allen Harris. "Our next phase is to help prepare the community to safely leave their homes and into their favorite local stores. We're here to help the Berkshires get back to business."

Visitors will be asked to drive through the circular driveway, going clockwise, stopping at a no-touch handoff point to receive a family-sized package of five masks. All masks are donations from BMM and will be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Berkshire Money Management has donated nearly 30,000 masks and other PPE to the local community.

Thrilling Finish as Dalton Little Leaguers Get Back to Fun

By Stephen Sports
DALTON, Mass. -- Everything went according to plan for the Dalton Police Association team in Tuesday’s Little League season opener.
Not because the DPA earned an 11-9 win over Crosier Electric but because of the fun that Dalton Police had in the process.
“We talk a little about fundamentals and very, very little about [competitive] mindset,” DPA head coach Joe Kotelnicki said after his team earned a win in its Dalton-Hinsdale Little League opener. “We talk a lot about fun.
“Nobody’s played a lot. We all haven’t seen each other in a long time. So when we all got back together, every practice we try to do something fun at the end, whether it’s pickle or Wiffle Ball or something just to get the kids back to having fun. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
