Thank you to everyone who came out to the wonderful Easter Festival! The festival featured a short talk by Hans Schumm, music and recitation by Diane Barnes and the festival singers, and Eurythmy solos by Jeanne Simon MacDonald, Virginia Hermann and Cameron Macarthur. Virginia and Cameron joined us from the Eurythmy Spring Valley Stage Ensemble and are familiar to those of you who saw the Mystery Dramas in 2014 (Virginia performed the part of Lucifer and Cameron the Guardian of the Threshold).

The Home of the Branch
The Berkshire Taconic Branch, as the name suggests, is a branch of the international society that is growing in the area that straddles the line dividing Massachusetts and New York among the Berkshires and the Taconic Hills.
The Branch Newsletter
The branch puts out a newsletter 10 months of each year called the Chanticleer. The Chanticleer contains articles, art, poetry, announcements, a calender and news relevant to anthroposophy, mostly contributed by members from our area. This newsletter is an important aspect of the branch that helps us develop community awareness.
To subscribe to the Chanticleer contact our editor, John Scott Legg, by e-mail- firstname.lastname@example.org
Our branch hosts a monthly meeting where anthroposophy is studied and discussed. The branch also organizes, sponsors and hosts lectures, conferences, performances, art exhibits and festivals. The Berkshire Taconic region area is full of initiative and activity inspired by anthroposophy. These initiatives include waldorf schools, bio-dynamic farms, adult education inspired by anthroposophy for teachers, artists, scientists, therapists, social workers, Camphill Communities a congregation of the Christian Community and more. The national society's Rudolf Steiner Library is located in our area.
