HINSDALE - State Sen. Benjamin B. Downing, D-Pittsfield, has postponed today's scheduled 'Coffee and Conversation' event at the Hinsdale Public Library.

Downing said in a news release that he was postponing the event so he "can continue to focus his attention and efforts on the North Adams Regional Hospital situation."

The senator's district office is working with Hinsdale officials to reschedule today's 'Coffee and Conversation,' which was scheduled to run from 3 to 5 p.m., for a date in April.
