WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – The Williams men's and women's cross country teams have made an annual commitment to engage in an in-season community service projet. This year the Ephs spent Monday, October 8 contributing to local communities in three different locations.

At the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation headquarters, south of the campus on U.S. Route 7, an Eph crew cleared brush, trimmed along the stonewalls surrounding the property, and trimmed and cleaned the area of the Foundation property fronting Route 7.

A little further south and a bit west, another Eph crew joined Peace Valley Farm owner Bill Stinson, helping split and move logs into winter storage and shuck and sort the Peace Valley onion harvest.

In North Adams, team members helped prepare and serve lunch at the Northern Berkshire Food Project.
