Congratulations to Becky. I also like that she worked with Caligari Hardware to ensure that her budget met contest rules. One of the strengths of the Berkshires is that local businesses will rise to the request when a young person has a good project. It takes a village....

Thanks to the Eagle for printing a positive story. The Eagle chooses mostly negative stories to cover.
