Print Story | Email Story
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The town urges all residents to "be counted" for the 2022 town census by returning a completed census form to Town Hall. Residents should have received a census form in their mail in mid-December.
State law mandates this annual street listing (town census) of residents as of Jan. 1 of each year. 
Residents should return the form by mail, in person or at the Town Clerk's drop box outside Town Hall which is accessible 24/7. Anyone in need of assistance with the form is asked to contact the Town Clerk's Office, (413) 528-1619 ext. 2100. The form can also be scanned and emailed to
Anyone who may have lost their form, or would like to obtain a new one, may contact Town Hall or visit the Town Clerk's page on the town website.
Town census information is used for the following purposes: 
  • To assist public safety and emergency responders
  • To apply for grants
  • To assist the town and state in calculating state and federal aid
  • To update the town voter list (if you are a registered voter and do not respond to the census, you could be made inactive on the voting list)
  • To serve as proof of residency for residents who need to qualify for veteran's benefits, in-state tuition at state schools and other programs.
All residents, not just voters, should return the form each year.

The Wallflowers to Perform at Mahaiwe

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center announces the American rock act the Wallflowers, Jakob Dylan's Grammy-winning outfit, will perform live on its stage on Friday, May 20 at 8 p.m. 
"We're excited to bring the Wallflowers to the Berkshires," says Mahaiwe Executive Director Janis Martinson. "A headlining talent like Jakob Dylan is a great reason to shake off the winter and come out for live music this spring." 
According to a press release, ror the past 30 years, the Wallflowers have stood as one of rock's most dynamic and purposeful bands – a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996's "Bringing Down the Horse" as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012's "Glad All Over."  
In 2021, the Wallflowers released "Exit Wounds." The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since "Glad All Over."
