Construct will hold its 2024 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, June 26, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at The Egremont Barn on 17 Main Street in South Egremont. All interested south Berkshire residents are welcome to attend to learn about Construct’s recent accomplishments and get a preview of what’s in store for the year ahead. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is requested by emailing ldavis@constructberkshires.org. Registration is free and open to the public.

“The annual meeting is an important event for Construct, serving as our one public meeting of the year,” emphasized Jane Ralph, Construct’s Executive Director. “Given the pressing need for affordable housing in the southern Berkshires and the innovative approaches Construct is implementing, we are eager to provide an opportunity for anyone interested to gain deeper insights.” Construct is currently in the process of transforming a Gilded Age mansion, Cassilis Farm, into 11 apartments and is hosting a Designer Showhouse on the property to raise awareness and funds.

The apartments at Cassilis will be named “The House that Stebbie Built” in honor of Richard Stebbins and will continue the legacy of “The House that Ernie Built” at Forest Springs in memory of Ernie Schnesel.
