Construct Inc. Brings Out the Community
Rachel Louchen reports from Great Barrington. It seemed as if just about everyone in the Berkshires gathered at Crissey Farm on Monday, May 13, for Construct Inc.‘s annual fundraiser, Mayfest, which raises money so that the organization can continue to provide housing, financial aid, and other multiple forms of support to those in need in Southern Berkshire County. The packed room included more than a dozen local restaurants, which ran the gamut from Aroma, The Great Barrington Bagel Co., tacos from Gedney Farm, and sweet treats supplied by Klara’s Gourmet Cookies. This year, a large portion of the evening’s proceeds will go towards an addition to Contruct’s main building — a community center called Priscilla’s Room, where women can safely gather for educational as well as recreational classes.
