Congratulations on your special occasion!
The Berkshire Eagle and North Adams Transcript want to help you share your good news with your community. For all announcements submitted after November 10th for publication on November 16 or later, we will offer three package options for engagements, weddings and anniversaries. We know how important this occasion is to you, and we want to help you enjoy this special time in your life by publishing your announcement when and how you want it to appear. The announcements are printed each Sunday in The Berkshire Eagle and on the third Saturday of each month in the North Adams Transcript. In addition, we want you to be able to share your joy with people outside of our circulation area, so we are offering an online package as well.
