    So many great things happening in the Valley but one that stands out is recently participating in the Hot Chocolate Run. Being a small part of something so big, such an important fund raiser, running with friends and SO MANY other people, having my family (and everyone else in town!!!) cheering for all of us and running through and around Northampton on a beautiful day for a good cause, such a great, great experience!!!!

    The October snowstorm sticks out as an event which brought our community together. I had cooked a turkey supper at the Williamsburg Congregational Church. Twenty-four brave souls came for dinner that night. As I left the church to go home, I could see the candles glowing in the dining room window and knew there were folks in there enjoying the food and companionship. The leftovers went to nourish the fire department members who worked diligently throughout the night…community? That’s what small towns are all about.

    I continue to be impressed with how the community comes together for the Safe Passage Hot Chocolate Run. About 5,500 local residents coming out for such a good cause and a fabulously fun morning! It always makes me proud to be from the valley; the 2011 event was no exception!

    During the Halloween snowstorm this year, our “pocket neighborhood” in North Amherst came together around an open fire to cook, eat, and keep warm for every meal during the six days we were without power. Everyone shared resources during this time in order to make the experience more tolerable for young and old alike. It was a great example of the importance of community.

    When I reflect on 2011, I am thankful for our adopted son Kaleb who we were blessed with in February. The community support was wonderful. When thinking of the community, I think of Irene and how it brought not only our state and towns together as one, but of my neighbors in Goshen and Cummington who helped me, personally out in our time of need. Family and friends are the essence of life.

    I have never been but would love to have this opportunity to experience this with my husband…

    I loved going to the Easthampton Holiday Stroll. It always gets me in the holiday spirit.

    Two of my children are members of the Blafield Children’s Chorus, which is a Berkshire County community organization (Berkshire Lyric). Their recent holiday concerts have been at several locations across the county, and my children and I have enjoyed hearing the amazing talent from members of all ages.

    My husband took an evening Hoote Nanny class for parents. It was a great way to learn to play guitar for the family to enjoy and make friends.
