PITTSFIELD

Catching up, meanwhile, on a couple of noteworthy events. The Berkshire Rowing and Sculling Society (BRASS) honored founder and former Eagle business editor Lew Cuyler at a gathering Saturday evening at Patrick’s Pub. Cuyler, an avid rower for most of his life, had been nominated for a national award for his longevity and success in promoting the sport.

While he didn’t come away with national honors, kudos were heaped upon him at the local event by many whose lives he’s influenced with his passion. Lew and his wife, Harriet, are well-known in rowing circles and continue to be a striking couple.
