Posted:  Updated: HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Advertising Club of Western Massachusetts Trustees of the Order of William Pynchon announced their selection of two winners for the Pynchon Medal on Thursday.

Caulton-Harris said, “There are times when the mayor and I needed to make decisions that were difficult to approach COVID-19 and to assure that our community was safe.”
