SPRINGFIELD — U.S. Rep. Richard Neal joined Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, STCC President John Cook, and Springfield Redevelopment Authority Executive Director Amanda Pham this week to announce a $3 million earmark to establish a Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (CCE) within Springfield Union Station.

The allocation was made possible through congressionally directed spending from the U.S. Department of Education. Neal included funding for this project in the FY 2023 spending bill that was signed into law on Dec. 29.

“The threats facing our nation at both the national and local level are significant, and having the cutting-edge technology capable of countering these threats is of the utmost importance,” Neal said. “Union Station has become a world-class intermodal transportation hub for the Greater Springfield community, and it will now serve as home to a state-of-the-art cybersecurity training center. This will give the brightest young minds in our region the resources they need to combat these threats, ultimately expanding the region’s skilled workforce and shoring up the resiliency of our cybersecurity in Western Massachusetts and beyond.”

Added Cook, “we are tremendously grateful for these federal dollars, which provide a unique investment in students, community college, and the workforce needs of a key sector. Thank you, Congressman Neal, for championing Union Station and helping build our local cyber resiliency.”

The CCE will be developed and operated in collaboration with the MassCyberCenter and serve as a regional CCE for Western Mass. and beyond. The project brings together a consortia of area higher-education institutions, business and civic leaders, and facility professionals. The CCE will provide hands-on training and professional opportunities for students to develop a career in the burgeoning cyber workforce and will be an integral part of the Massachusetts Cybersecurity Consortium.

Hot Plate Brewing Co. Receives National Recognition

PITTSFIELD — Hot Plate Brewing Co., a Latina-owned brewery opening in downtown Pittsfield in early 2023, was selected as one of the Imbibe 75 in the January/February 2023 issue of Imbibe. According to the magazine, the Imbibe 75 features “individuals, organizations, and businesses that are dedicated to creating a more positive, sustainable, inclusive, and equitable drinks world.” As a BIPOC- and women-owned business, Hot Plate was selected by Imbibe because of the company’s mission to make the craft-beer world more accessible and inclusive. According to the Brewers Assoc., less than 1% of all American craft breweries are owned by women of color, which makes Hot Plate stand out in a crowded, maturing marketplace. Beyond representation, Hot Plate also seeks to leverage its founders’ professional skillsets to execute on their brand promise in a data-driven way. With almost 40 years of combined experience in market research, brand development, and data analysis, founders Sarah Real and Mike Dell’Aquila plan on implementing tools and best practices to reach, inspire, and engage historically underrepresented consumers. In addition to its beers and marketing plans, Hot Plate also intends to make a tangible, positive impact in the Berkshires with its Community Line, which will feature collaborations with a rotating list of mission-aligned nonprofit organizations and raise money for a variety of causes; proceeds from these collaborative beers will go directly to the charitable organizations with whom they are partnering.

 

PeoplesBank Donates Record $2.3 Million in 2022

HOLYOKE — For a second year in a row, PeoplesBank set a new annual record for donations to civic and charitable causes. The bank tallied $2.3 million in donations for 2022, which is $1 million dollars more than last year’s record.

As a mutual bank, we do not have stockholders who would divert profits. Therefore, we are able to significantly support nonprofits and other community causes.” As a large regional employer whose values include community service, Senecal added, PeoplesBank is able to increase its support to the community and social-service organizations through volunteerism. “We have a lot of talent in our organization, and because of that, we have a significant presence on area nonprofit boards of directors. We also look for opportunities to roll up our sleeves and serve, and we spend thousands of hours each year doing that.”

Specifically, the money goes to Western Mass CORE, an HCC program that works in partnership with the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department to facilitate pathways to education for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals. CORE stands for community, opportunity, resources, and education. The program was founded in 2019 by two HCC professors, Nicole Hendricks (criminal justice) and Mary Orisich (economics). The Bridges to College grant will allow Western Mass CORE to expand office hours, advising services, and information sessions at the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department’s AISS facility, located in the WW Johnson Life Center on State Street in Springfield. AISS stands for Al Inclusive Support Services (formerly After Incarceration Support Services). The grant will also support the hiring of a new community-navigator position to lead this outreach work. This is Western Mass CORE’s third Bridges to College grant as project lead. The grant also will provide funding for Western Mass CORE to host a series of community events, including a monthly children’s story hour at the Holyoke Public Library for parents who have been previously incarcerated and their children, and community coffee hours at the HCC MGM Culinary Arts Institute on Race Street. In the meantime, Western Mass CORE will continue its work inside the Hampden County Correctional Center in Ludlow and the Western Massachusetts Regional Women’s Correctional Center in Chicopee. This spring, at the Ludlow jail, Hendricks will teach a criminology course, while Orisich will lead an economics class. HCC theater professor Patricia Sandoval will teach a fundamentals of acting class at the women’s jail.

SPRINGFIELD — The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) is a program funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and designed to supplement and expand the ongoing work of local social0service organizations to provide shelter, food, and supportive services to individuals and families who are experiencing, or are at risk of experiencing, homelessness or hunger.

The United Way Pioneer Valley (UWPV) serves as the administrator for Hampden County, South Hadley, and Granby for all EFSP funds. With the help of a local board comprised of local community leaders, UWPV determines how funding is allocated through a competitive grant application process.

EFSP funding for Phase 40 recently became available, resulting in the distribution of $258,500 to be disbursed on a reimbursement basis to local nonprofit organizations.

“We are honored to be the vehicle through which these funds are allocated to the community, to the people most challenged with finding food and shelter,” said Jason Newmark, president of the UWPV board. “We are especially grateful to our local board partners at Catholic Charities, the Red Cross, etc., who help us make this happen.”

EFSP funds must be used to supplement food and shelter services and may not be used as seed money for new programs. The key responsibility of participating organizations is to provide assistance within the intent of their programs.

HOLYOKE — Through the month of February, Wistariahurst Museum and Garden will display a poster exhibition titled “Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow,” organized and distributed by the New York Historical Society Museum and Library, with lead support for this traveling exhibition provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Black Americans gained monumental new liberties after the Civil War and the end of slavery. The era known as Reconstruction brought freedom, citizenship, and, for Black men, the right to vote. By the early 1900s, these liberties had been sabotaged by a repressive racial system known as Jim Crow. This exhibit chronicles the long strides forward, bruising setbacks, and heroic struggle for equality that took place during these years.

Erika Slocumb, scholar of Black studies, who has done much research on the local Black community in Holyoke, noted that “the fight for Black citizenship in the age of Jim Crow is interesting because Black folks used soldiering in the Civil War as a means to attain citizenship in the U.S. Specifically, this demand for citizenship came from Black abolitionists in the North, including Frederick Douglass and W.E.B. Du Bois. The Massachusetts 54th Regiment was at the forefront of this call. There were quite a few soldiers from Western Mass. who fought in the 54th and were recognized for their bravery not only on the battlefield but also in their call for equal pay and rights in the U.S. Army.

“I think that it’s important to understand that emancipation, while it ‘freed’ enslaved Black people in the U.S., did not afford them the opportunities of the protections of the law,” Slocumb added. “Many people fled the Jim Crow south in search of a better life and greater opportunity. And that wave of northern migration and ones that followed are how many of the Black families we have spoken to came to be in Holyoke.”

In addition to the exhibit, this program provides a resources for teachers and the public, including recommended readings, recommending watching, links to interactive presentations, workshops and educational curricula, and lesson plans for grades K-12.

The exhibit will be in the Gallery at Wistariahurst Feb. 6-21 and will be supplemented with artifacts and images from the Black Holyoke collection. The gallery is open Mondays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Tuesdays from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Visit wistariahurst.org/events-2 to register for this event.

HARTFORD, Conn. — TheaterWorks Hartford, under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Rob Ruggiero, will present the New England Premiere of Queen of Basel, written by Hilary Bettis. Directed by Cristina Angeles, Queen of Basel is an adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie set within the Latinx community during Miami’s Art Basel. Featuring an all-Latinx cast and creative team, Queen of Basel runs February 3-26 at TheaterWorks, 233 Pearl St., Hartford. It will also stream on demand February 19-26. Tickets are now on sale at twhartford.org.

Queen of Basel is a fast-paced, language- and character-driven play about class and colorism within the Latinx community,” Angeles said. “I couldn’t be more excited to make my TheaterWorks Hartford debut with a play showcasing such vivid, flawed, and imperfect characters with a dynamic female protagonist at its core. Latinx stories are rarely seen on stage, and I hope this is just the beginning of a much longer conversation surrounding our varied lived experiences and the art that is created as a result.”

Ruggiero added that “Queen of Basel is a play that has excited me since I first read it a couple of years ago. When planning the 2022-2023 season, I felt it was essential to include a story that speaks to our Latin community. What I find compelling, however, is not the political or social issues at its core, but, as always, I love the relationships, and this particular dance of power, passion, seduction, temptation, and impulse that can easily become destructive or self-destructive. It’s human, it’s raw, it’s completely compelling — and it’s in that engagement that we are also provoked into important conversations about privilege, race, power, and color.”

The cast of Queen of Basel includes Silvia Dionicio as Christine, Kelvin Grullon as John, and Christine Spang as Julie. The play contains strong language and adult content, and is not recommended for people under age 18. The running time is 80 minutes with no intermission.

In-person tickets are priced at $25 to $65. All tickets can be purchased online at twhartford.org or by calling (860) 527-7838.

WESTFIELD — Last week, U.S. Rep. Richard Neal joined Westfield Mayor Michael McCabe and city officials at the Westfield Wastewater Treatment Plant to announce a $1 million earmark for the construction of a new operations center building.

The allocation was made possible through Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) from the Department of the Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency. Neal included funding for this project in the FY 2022 spending bill that was signed into law on March 15, 2022.

“The Westfield Wastewater Treatment Plant serves as a reminder that our nation’s infrastructure is aging,” Neal said. “Thanks to the president’s bipartisan infrastructure law and CDS funds under the annual appropriations bill, projects such as this one are finally coming to fruition. Construction of a new operations center building will provide assurances to Westfield residents that their water and local environment are being properly treated and ensure a safe work environment for city employees.”

The new building will implement recommendations by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Bureau of Environmental Health and will help reduce, if not eliminate, airborne sewerage pollutants negatively impacting the indoor air quality of the operations center. Upgrades to the 50-year-old facility will ensure the city’s wastewater-systems infrastructure remains operable and protects workers from contracting highly pathogenic diseases present in wastewater.

“Without the continued support of Congressman Neal and his office, worthy projects such as this one simply don’t get done,” McCabe said. “All communities have a right to clean water and modern facilities. This earmark will go to replace a building completed in 1972 and whose systems of operation are behind the times. Again, we thank Congressman Neal for his continued efforts on behalf of the city of Westfield.”

Under guidelines issued by the Senate and House Appropriations committees, members of Congress requested CDS funding for projects in their state for FY 2022. CDS requests were restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible nonprofit entities were permitted to receive CDS funding. This project is one of 10 CDS projects submitted by Neal, totaling more than $9 million in investments throughout the First Congressional District of Massachusetts.

SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Thunderbirds, in conjunction with the Center for Human Development (CHD) and Springfield College’s Department of Occupational Therapy, will host their third annual sensory-friendly game on Sunday, Feb. 26 at 3:05 p.m., when the Thunderbirds host the Charlotte Checkers.

The game presentation will feature decreased stimulation, including no goal horn or noise meters, decreased microphone and music volume, no strobing lights, and consistent lighting throughout the game and pregame, as well as two ‘cool-down stations,’ quiet areas on the concourse and main entry level of the MassMutual Center, away from the seating bowl, and a ‘sensory story’ booklet and other supportive items for guests.

Since their inaugural season in 2016, the Springfield Thunderbirds have been partners with CHD, celebrating community-focused initiatives and difference makers in the Western Mass. community. At each T-Birds home game, a Game Changer award is presented to a member of the crowd who has bettered his or her community in ways both large and small. Additionally, the two organizations have partnered to create an opportunity for all — including those with physical limitations — to enjoy the game of hockey with the introduction of the CHD Sled Hockey Thunderbirds. The Springfield Thunderbirds, through Hockey Fights Cancer and other initiatives, have also been steadfast supporters of the CHD Cancer House of Hope, which is committed to providing access to free services and therapies that bring comfort, care, strength, resilience, and hope to patients with cancer and their loved ones.

“We are very excited to make this year’s sensory-friendly game the most impactful one yet,” Thunderbirds President Nathan Costa said. “Our longtime partners at CHD have always shared in our mission to provide an unforgettable experience to those who otherwise might not ever have the opportunity to comfortably enjoy a Thunderbirds game. Their support, along with the efforts of Springfield College, means so much to our organization and to the families who attend this game each year.”

Ben Craft, vice president of Community Engagement at CHD, noted that “CHD and the T-Birds started the sensory game two seasons ago, and it quickly became a favorite among families and fans who may not otherwise have been able to fully enjoy the excitement of hockey in Springfield. Inclusion and opportunity are at the core of CHD’s mission, and in our strong partnership with the Thunderbirds, we are together demonstrating that care finds a way.”

Added Lori Vaughn, professor and chair of the Springfield College Occupational Therapy program, “the Occupational Therapy program at Springfield College is once again thrilled to be part of this wonderful initiative with the Thunderbirds and CHD. The sensory-friendly game allows individuals with sensory sensitivities to be present and engaged in Thunderbirds hockey, which might otherwise not be possible. Along with the modifications the Thunderbirds have put in place, the Student Occupational Therapy Association club at Springfield College will be volunteering in the cool-down stations with a variety of sensory-friendly activities they have planned to support children and families.”

Fans with questions regarding the sensory-friendly game can direct them to the Thunderbirds front office at (413) 739- 4625 or by visiting www.springfieldthunderbirds.com.

HOLYOKE — Holyoke Community College (HCC) has been awarded an $81,605 Bridges to College grant from the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education to expand community outreach to adult learners who have been previously incarcerated.

Specifically, the money goes to Western Mass CORE, an HCC program that works in partnership with the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department to facilitate pathways to education for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals.

CORE stands for community, opportunity, resources, and education. The program was founded in 2019 by two HCC professors, Nicole Hendricks (criminal justice) and Mary Orisich (economics).

“Our goal is to teach classes inside jails and connect people with college who want to continue their education, and to do that requires a lot of outreach, advising, and mentoring,” Hendricks said. “In the past year, we’ve been focusing quite a bit on post-incarceration support, working with individuals who are on supervised release or who may be working while living in a Sheriff’s Department facility.”

The Bridges to College grant will allow Western Mass CORE to expand office hours, advising services, and information sessions at the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department’s AISS facility, located in the WW Johnson Life Center on State Street in Springfield. AISS stands for Al Inclusive Support Services (formerly After Incarceration Support Services). The grant will also support the hiring of a new community-navigator position to lead this outreach work. This is Western Mass CORE’s third Bridges to College grant as project lead.

“Mary and Nicole’s commitment to this population is admirable, and I am so proud of the work they do to serve the community,” said Sharale Mathis, HCC’s vice president of Academic and Student Affairs.

The grant also will provide funding for Western Mass CORE to host a series of community events, including a monthly children’s story hour at the Holyoke Public Library for parents who have been previously incarcerated and their children, and community coffee hours at the HCC MGM Culinary Arts Institute on Race Street.

On March 24, as part of the grant and in partnership with Western New England University, Western Mass CORE will host an expungement event and CORI-friendly career fair in HCC’s Bartley Center for Athletics & Recreation, where formerly incarcerated individuals will be able to consult with lawyers to help have their criminal records expunged.

“The new grant plan centers on deepening connections, building relationships, networking, and increasing college readiness,” Hendricks said.

In the meantime, Western Mass CORE will continue its work inside the Hampden County Correctional Center in Ludlow and the Western Massachusetts Regional Women’s Correctional Center in Chicopee. This spring, at the Ludlow jail, Hendricks will teach a criminology course, while Orisich will lead an economics class. HCC theater professor Patricia Sandoval will teach a fundamentals of acting class at the women’s jail.

“That’s going to be the first arts course we’re offering,” Hendricks said. “We will also continue to do a lot of other programming inside the jails, including book groups, which have been a powerful way to connect with students there.”

Her demonstrated commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion and supporting community engagement has been influenced by her multi-faceted lived experience. We look forward to her future contributions to advance our mission and strategic initiatives, all for the benefit of the communities we serve.”

Burke was selected as a result of an extensive local and national search conducted by Lindauer Associates in partnership with the foundation’s search committee, led by Murphy.

“As a resident of Western Mass., I am excited to be able to lead the well-respected Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts in advancing equity and opportunity for all residents of the Valley,” Burke said. “This region has enormous potential to be an even more vibrant community with all residents enjoying access to high-quality early-childhood care, more affordable post-secondary education and training, and a more inclusive, creative economy.

“Throughout my professional career, I have seen what can happen when people come together to address seemingly intractable problems,” she added. “I have been part of collective efforts that have resulted in a global ban on inhumane weapons, access to healthcare and education for LGBTQ+ residents of Nicaragua, and increased employment and food security for Greater Hartford residents. My work at the Hartford Foundation has demonstrated the critical role a community foundation can play in bringing people together, especially when that work is done inclusively.

“The Hartford Foundation has mobilized its resources to support efforts to shift power and promote more equitable economic and social mobility, including by opening its doors wider to effectively support smaller, and BIPOC-led, nonprofit organizations,” Burke went on. “I am eager to bring my passion for this work to the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, building on its strong reputation and the progress its staff has made to ensure CFWM is serving all residents of our region.”

NORTHAMPTON — Jake Hooker, a 2012 Northampton High School graduate, has passed the state’s bar exam and joined his father, Michael Hooker, in Hooker’s legal firm, Attorney Michael Hooker Elder Law, which serves elders and those living with disabilities.

BOSTON — Massachusetts employers ended a seesaw 2022 less confident in the economy than 12 months earlier, but nevertheless optimistic about their prospects in 2023.

The Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) Business Confidence Index lost 4.7 points to 54.0 during December, giving up part of a large increase posted in November. The Index ended the year 2.7 points lower than its level of December 2021.

Employers remain concerned that efforts by central banks to moderate inflation by raising interest rates will slow the economy, perhaps into recession. At the same time, labor remains in tight supply, with many employers continuing to struggle to hire and retain employees.

“The path to 2% inflation will inevitably be painful. Most economists forecast a recession in the first half of 2023, led by declines in residential investment, commercial construction, inventory investment, and consumer spending on goods,” said Sara Johnson, chair of the AIM Board of Economic Advisors (BEA).

Participants in the Business Confidence Index survey reflected the shift in concern from rising prices to slowing growth. “I anticipate a recession in the second half of 2023, just beyond the six-month window of the survey,” one employer wrote.

The AIM Index, based on a survey of more than 140 Massachusetts employers, has appeared monthly since July 1991. It is calculated on a 100-point scale, with 50 as neutral; a reading above 50 is positive, while below 50 is negative.

The constituent indicators that make up the Index were uniformly lower during December. The confidence employers have in their own companies fell 5.6 points to 57.2, ending the month 2.7 points below December 2021.

The Massachusetts Index assessing business conditions within the Commonwealth declined 3.6 points to 52.6, down 3.0 points from a year earlier. The U.S. Index measuring conditions throughout the country lost 2.4 points to 46.2 to remain in pessimistic territory for the third consecutive month.

The Current Index, which assesses overall business conditions at the time of the survey, fell 5.0 points to 55.7. The Future Index, measuring projections for the economy six months from now, lost 4.2 points to end the month at 52.4.

The Manufacturing Index declined 1.0 point to 55.3, compared to a 53.5 reading among non-manufacturing companies. The Employment Index lost 2.8 points to 55.7 as employers continued to scour a tight labor market for qualified workers.

Medium-sized companies (56.1) were more optimistic than large companies (53.8) or small companies (51.1).

Nada Sanders, Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management at Northeastern University, said the global supply-chain interruptions that have exacerbated inflation are slowly easing.

“With financial conditions tightening, a deceleration in goods demand is enabling supply to catch up, relieving bottlenecks,” she said. “Earlier fears of component shortages led to an inventory buildup that can now be strategically scaled back. The rebalancing of supply and demand has relieved congestion at ports and brought down shipping rates. Nevertheless, caution is needed as many potential supply-chain interruptions remain on the horizon.”

AIM President and CEO John Regan, a BEA member, said employer confidence varied widely during 2022 as the Federal Reserve attempted to harness inflation without sending the economy into recession.

“It was a year in which employers faced a multitude of challenges, from untangling supply systems and managing labor costs to retaining workers and processing new patterns of post-COVID customer behavior,” Regan said. “The good news is that Massachusetts remains well-positioned as a global center of technology and commerce and should be able to ride out an economic slowdown better than most states.”

SPRINGFIELD — The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and LEARFIELD announced an agreement with Morgan Stanley Global Sports & Entertainment centered around the Spalding Hoophall Classic high-school showcase. Through this relationship, Morgan Stanley will develop a tailored financial-literacy program for some of the top prep basketball student-athletes in the country and lead an in-person seminar for this year’s participants inside the newly renovated Basketball Hall of Fame on Sunday, Jan. 15.

Additionally, Morgan Stanley and the Basketball Hall of Fame will, together, honor the late Martin Luther King Jr., paying tribute to his life and legacy across all five nationally televised (on ESPN) Hoophall Classic games on Monday, Jan. 16.

“The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Morgan Stanley to heighten the Hoophall Classic experience for the future stars of our game,” said John Doleva, president and CEO of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. “The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame prides itself on its commitment to developing these world-class prep athletes on and off the court. Introducing financial literacy to these young players who will likely start receiving NIL money and/or sign professional contracts in the immediate future is arguably one of the most essential skills we can give them.”

Sandra Richards, head of Morgan Stanley Global Sports & Entertainment, added that “we look forward to working with the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and LEARFIELD to deliver our fundamental financial-literacy programming to some of the nation’s best and brightest prep athletes, coaches, and staff. The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame is a historic and globally renowned pillar to the sport of basketball and its culture. We are excited to collaborate with the Hall to prepare and empower these young men and women for the next phase of their educational, personal, and professional journeys. We believe financial education is a critical component to that effort.”

This year will mark the 21st year of the Hoophall Classic. The event will feature 31 games played over five days, throughout Martin Luther King Day weekend, at Springfield College. This year’s field, which boasts teams from 17 states, will feature 39 total players (34 boys and five girls) in ESPN’s Top 100 from the class of 2023.

Over the years, the Hoophall Classic has hosted more than 150 future NBA players during their prep careers, including Kevin Durant (2006), Kyrie Irving (2010), Anthony Davis (2011), Ben Simmons (2015), Jayson Tatum (2016), Zion Williamson (2018), and Anthony Edwards (2019-20); and featured the first five players taken in the 2021 NBA Draft: Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green, Evan Mobley, Scottie Barnes, and Jalen Suggs.

LONGMEADOW — It’s been one year since One Way Brewing opened its taproom at 807 Maple Road in Longmeadow. In that year, the One Way crew has welcomed thousands of customers, released more than two dozen new beers, and made lots of friends in the community.

“It’s hard to believe the taproom has been open for a year,” co-owner Jason Tsitso said. “We have a lot of plans for this second year, starting with the addition of Sunday hours and, hopefully, an outdoor patio in the spring.”

In recognition of and gratitude for this milestone, One Way Brewing is hosting a celebration on Sunday, Jan. 22 from 1 to 6 p.m. at the brewery. The event will feature live music from 2 to 5 p.m. by the Hard to Read band, as well as the release of a New England IPA anniversary beer that will be brewed only for this occasion.

But that’s not all Tsitso and co-owner Zach Schwartz have up their sleeves; One Way Brewing will also be partnering with Fletcher’s BBQ Shop and Steakhouse on this day. For those who got a taste of Fletcher’s BBQ at the town’s Fall Festival and are craving another helping, this might be the only chance to taste this barbecue before the restaurant officially opens on Longmeadow Street this spring.

Guests are welcome to come in, sit down, listen to music, enjoy a pint or two, and order food to eat on-site. However, the barbecue sells out fast, so the other option is to pre-order a Beer and BBQ Box ahead of time. There will be two pickup times for the takeaway Beer and BBQ Boxes: noon to 1 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. Pre-orders placed before noon on Sunday, Jan. 15 are guaranteed to walk away with a four-pack of the One Way anniversary beer and a barbecue meal that includes a full rack of ribs or chicken wings, one quart of pit-smoked beans, and one pint of coleslaw. The Beer and BBQ Box feeds two hearty eaters/drinkers, or four average eaters/drinkers. The cost of the Beer and BBQ Box is $79.95. To pre-order, visit www.1waybrewing.com/one-year-anniversary.

“Zach and I would like to thank everyone who supported us this past year, from our awesome patrons to our One Way family,” Tsitso said. “But, to quote Bill Belichick, we’re on to year two.”

DEERFIELD — Now through Feb. 3, Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) is accepting pitches for its live storytelling event, Field Notes, to be held this spring at the Academy of Music in Northampton.

Community members who are selected as storytellers will share true, short stories based on personal experience with local food or farming. No prior storytelling experience is necessary, and any story strongly related to local food or farming will be considered. Previous stories have included a single mother facing food insecurity whose life was changed by a farmshare, the chaos of herding sheep and children at a summer farm camp, fried green tomato hornworms, and much more.

“We hear so many great stories in our work, and Field Notes is a way to shine a light on the many ways that local food and farming have impacted lives, in ways big and small, across the region,” said Philip Korman, CISA’s executive director. “We’re delighted that Field Notes will be an in-person event again for the first time since COVID hit, especially since 2023 is CISA’s 30th-anniversary year.”

All performers will have the opportunity to workshop their stories and learn performance techniques with a professional storyteller ahead of the show. Financial assistance for participation time and childcare is available. If Spanish is a storyteller’s most comfortable language, CISA will work to provide interpretation.

Community members can learn more about the event and submit a written story pitch on CISA’s website at www.buylocalfood.org/pitch. Pitches may also be left as voicemails in English, by calling (413) 247-4153, or Spanish, by calling (413) 453-9245.
