Church awards four scholarships

GREENFIELD — The Second Congregational Church of Greenfield has awarded scholarships to Rebecca Daen, Kevin Gifford, Courtney Kimball and Julie Payne Britton for the upcoming school year.

Gifford and Payne Britton live in Greenfield, while Daen and Kimball are members of families affiliated with the Second Congregational Church.

Daen is working toward a master’s degree in business at the University of Texas at Austin; Gifford will be a junior at Bentley University in Waltham, majoring in finance; Kimball is enrolled at Westfield State University, in pursuit of a master’s degree in elementary education; and Payne Britton has reached the halfway point of her master of divinity degree at Chicago Theological Seminary.

Scholarships are available to members and affiliates of the Second Congregational Church through the Frances W. and Charles W. Saunders Scholarships, Florence V. Leach Scholarship and the Memorial Scholarship.


GREENFIELD — Starting Wednesday, July 15, Greenfield’s Parking Enforcement Office will resume some — but not all — parking enforcement activities that were suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting July 15, parking enforcement officers will begin to distribute written warnings for parking violations. Then, on July 29, officers will resume the enforcement of all fee-based parking violations, according to a press release from Mayor Roxann Wedegartner’s Office.

Greenfield is also taking steps to add more 15-minute free parking spaces downtown to accommodate patrons of takeout and curbside pickup establishments.

This revised approach to metered parking supports the turnover of vehicles downtown and will increase access to businesses that are working to resume operations, the release states.

“As we continue to take the careful steps to reopen our city, it’s important that we allow parking enforcement to do its job and ensure important investment back into our community,” Wedegartner said.

With questions or concerns, contact the Mayor’s Office at or 413-772-1560.

GREENFIELD — The recipients of the 2020 A.K. Warner Fund Scholarships are Valerie Kasper, Galen Most, Nagawang Tridytsang and Ariana Walker, who received $1,000 each, and Mackenzie Southwick and Hailey Younger, who received $500.

According to a notice from Marilyn Hannan, secretary of the A.K. Warner Fund trustees, the fund was established under the will of Anson K. Warner to provide financial assistance to Greenfield residents between the ages of 14 and 20 years old. The scholarship is awarded for the purpose of paying room, board or tuition. It may also be used to purchase books or other materials needed to procure a good education. The trustees elected by the citizens of Greenfield meet each spring to select the recipients.
