April 2020 Local Yokel

For a limited time, we are posting the current issue on our website because we are unable to print and deliver the paper copies as usual due to the coronavirus health emergency. We hope you will enjoy the issue and find it informative. Highlights include:

  • Coronavirus information and assistance
  • Town government notices about the closure of the Town Offices and free meals
  • Library services available during the emergency
  • The latest installment of “We Remember When…,” our series about life in West Stockbridge
    in the 1950s
  • History Question: How was West Stockbridge impacted by the 1918 flu pandemic?
  • “Grist from the Mill” a new column by our friends at Shaker Mill Books

We take seriously our mission to provide residents with useful information about cultural, educational, recreational, business, governmental, and other issues and activities in West Stockbridge. Thank you for your interest, support, and participation. We hope you and your family are well, stay well, and support
each other during this difficult time. We will get through this together. Sincerely, your fellow Yokels.
