Over 130 people attended – and re-lived their high school years through our team trivia game. A huge "thank you" to all who played and made it a great evening!

This night would not have been possible without the support of over a hundred local organizations and businesses.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Jarvis Rockwell's "American" assemblages now hang in the foyer of Bowman Hall at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.   "It's a lot easier than taking it home," Rockwell joked as he pointed out some of his favorite tchotchke fixed to one of the assemblages at his reception Tuesday.
