Monday October 22, 2012

HospiceCare in The Berkshires will present "Hospice Can Help" at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall, 414 North St.

HCIB Bereavement Coordinator Elissa Leone will present the program with Pam Macy Williamson, a member of HCIB’s Family Support Services Team.
