Egremont gives itself a birthday party, and promotes civic awareness

“In our system, the authority of the government goes to those who show up. And right now, our nation, our region, and our towns are at a crossroads. We need everyone to show up. And it’s not laziness or a shirking of civic responsibility. Often, we just have no clue how or where to begin.”

— Susan Bachelder, Egremont Historical Commission, opening the 242nd town birthday celebration
