An estimated 120 residents attended the event Sept. 10 at Ice House Hill Farm on East Road. A conservation restriction recently placed on the farm means it will not be commercially developed, providing incredible vistas to the distant hills, rolling fields for nesting bobolinks and the sight of red and white Hereford cattle grazing in the extensive pastures. The conservation restriction was executed by Berkshire Natural Resources Council.
Bill Edwards was presented with the 2022 Charles and Mary Kusik Citizenship Award.
