WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass - Members of the Williams Men's and Women's Cross Country teams recently participated in four community service projects in the local area.
A large group of Eph runners assisted Williamstown farmer Bill Stinson and former Eph runner Brian Cole '11 with a harvest at Peace Valley Farm located just off the Taconic Trail (Route 2).
As has been the case for a number of years the Eph teams also cleaned their section of Route 43 from Route 2 south towards Mount Hope Farm as participants in the national Adopt A Highway Program.
The Ephs also assisted the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation doing trail work on the Brooks Trail located just off Bee Hill Rd. in town, which is a familiar training run for many current and former Eph runners.
Another group of Ephs headed to nearby North Adams to work at the Berkshire Food Project serving food to folks in need. The Berkshire Food Project was started by Williams College students in 1987.
