Hampshire Cnty SeriesIf you are a frequent viewer of Connecting Point you may have noticed that we have gone “On the Road” a few times this season to talk with community leaders and local residents who are involved with making their community a better place to live and work.
We started our series in December when we brought our cameras and lights to the campus of Greenfield Community College in Franklin County. That was followed by a day at Hancock Shaker Village discussing some of the issues and highlighting the life style in Berkshire County. Our last stop happened in late April as we packed up our gear again and this time headed to Hampshire County and the Yiddish Book Center on the campus of Hampshire College.
Hosts Aliz Koletas and Jim Madigan had some engaging conversations with people from the community who shared with them some of the challenges and triumphs of living in Hampshire County. Our On The Road in Hampshire County series will begin Thursday May 22 on Connecting Point as Jim Madigan talks with WRSI Radio Program Director and on-air personality Monte Belmonte. In the following weeks you will hear from:

  • Neal B. Abraham, Executive Director of Five Colleges Educational Consortium
  • Todd Ford, Executive Director of Hampshire Council of Governments
  • John McDonald Jr, Chairman of the Board of Directors for RH Conwell Community Education Center in Worthington, MA.
  • J.M. Sorrell, activist and spokesperson/media contact for NoHo Pride
  • Susan Bronson Executive Director of the Yiddish Book Center Susan Bronson

I hope you will find these interviews enlightening and informative and as always we welcome your feed back with any of the content you have seen or would like to see on Connecting Point.
