The deadline to buy tickets for the 18th Annual Iron Bridge Dinner is fast approaching!  Come and experience this one of a kind event and dine on the historic Iron Bridge!  

You may have already heard but we are doing things a little differently this year.  The menu for this year’s dinner has been crafted by local area restaurants to incorporate the tastes of summer.  The meal will be coursed and served to diners for a more elegant dining experience.  We will also feature local beer and wine to compliment your meal.

Tickets can be purchased by calling the GSFABA at 413.625.2526 or by email at  Ticket prices for GSFABA Members is $75 and $100 for general public.

As the summer winds down, we hope that you all have had a moment to breathe and prepare for Fall. 

On the other hand, August has been a busy month for the GSFABA!  The 40th Annual Bridge of Flowers Road Race on Saturday, August 11th was a great success! The weather cooperated (for the most part!) as we welcomed nearly 1,000 runners from all over the country to our region. 

We also welcomed Kara Cavanaugh to the GSFABA as our new Program Director.  We are so happy that she is on board and are excited for all of our members to meet and work with her throughout the year.

Now we are gearing up for the 18th Annual Iron Bridge Dinner.  We’ve made some exciting changes to the event this year and have planned what we hope will be a truly enjoyable evening for all!

Here’s to a great remainder of the summer!
