Toasting Tapestry Health at Spice Dragon

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsBess J.M. Hochstein reports from Pittsfield:
Reproductive health and family planning are serious issues, but the benefit party on Monday, June 27 to mark the 38th anniversary of Tapestry Health, the only organization to provide these services in Western Massachusetts at low or no cost, was cause for celebration. Smiling supporters generously bid on silent auction items while nibbling sushi, dumplings, and savory skewers fresh from the new kitchen team at Spice Dragon. The mysterious Silver Swimmers (in photo at left) made a splash, handing out colorful condoms. Hosts Larry Rosenthal and Joyce Bernstein underwrote the evening so that 100% of the proceeds go to Tapestry Health.
