Native Peoples: Not Past Tense
Standing Rock Sioux Reservation situated along the border between North Dakota and South Dakota along the Missouri River, is the site of the on-going protests against the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The Rotary Club of Amherst has dedicated the funds from its 9th annual auction to support Amherst Media's campaign to build a new facility as it is forced out of its current Eversource-owned space which the community access center has occupied since 1991, as reported by Scott Merzbach in the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
Live bidding for the annual Rotary Auction begins on Veteran's Day, Friday, Nov. 11th, at 6 PM and runs through Saturday evening. This year's auction benefits none other than Amherst Media and in our video below AM Director Jim Lescault looks at the vital role the Amherst public access center plays in the life of our community.
