To the Editor:

The Dorset Marble Preservation Association (DMPA) wishes to acknowledge and thank the Berkshire Bank Foundation for its grant of $2,000 to help in the reconstruction of some of the marble sidewalks in Dorset and East Dorset. The first stage of this project has been completed resulting in a new and safer walkway stretching from the Berkshire Bank building on Church Street around the library corner and south along Route 30 to the Dorset Post Office. The next section targeted by the DMPA will be the area around Wilson House in East Dorset. Work there will begin as additional funds become available.
