Community members are invited to participate in the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition's walking forum, "Expanding our Community's Voice," beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 14, at First Baptist Church; use the Eagle Street entrance.

Teams of three will visit pre-selected locations and talk with residents, patrons and employees about the community's strengths and needs, making the community a healthier place to live, and interest in alternate forum times.

The groups will meet back at 11:30 a.m. to report their findings.

Bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Friendship Center Food Pantry.
