From the Editor: Welcome to the inaugural Berkshire Family Focus (online) Magazine [October 2013 issue]

Berkshrie Family Focus October 2013 Magazine color

Hi everyone!

It was always my goal to provide a local family magazine highlighting the Berkshires — it’s talented writers and teachers, arts and culture, family activities and events and more.

In this issue you will find:

Also a great big thank you goes out to our resident Graphic Designer Kristy Rustay for all the great new logos (more to come), the artist from KidZone who created our “cover” photo (send us your name so we can give you the credit you deserve) and to our web-guru Lance Brown for helping out with the new design and all the glitches it entailed.

Until next month … enjoy the read.
