Upcoming Climate Change Events

Thursday, February 2: Ride for Resistance: East Coast Red Warrior Tour (Standing Rock). Water protectors from The Red Warrior Society and Mothers Against Meth Alliance are traveling from Standing Rock to the east coast this winter and they are coming to Vermont! Join us for an evening of learning, reflection, and raising funds to support these warriors. Potluck dinner and welcome 6–7 p.m. followed by presentation. Please bring a cash or check donation. 6–9 p.m. Unitarian Church of Montpelier, 130 Main St., Montpelier.

Saturday, February 4–Saturday, February 11. Week of Action VT. Join us February 4–11 for a Week of Action to stop the last leg of construction of the Vermont Gas Pipeline. We invite you to take action over the course of the week to protect Geprags Park and our planet. No new fossil fuel infrastructure — not in Vermont, not anywhere. To get plugged into action plans contact weekofactionvt@gmail.com and for the latest updates, visit facebook.com/WeekOfActionVT 

Monday February 6 . Part of the Week of Action VT, TD Bank: Out of DAPL, Out of Vermont! TD Bank 132 Main St., Montpelier noon–2 p.m. facebook.com/WeekOfActionVT

Friday, February 10. Festival of Trees. The Second Festival of Trees will acknowledge the work of students in two Montpelier school classes in learning to steward the newer and older trees on and around St. Paul Street. It will also educate the public about the vital importance of a healthy tree inventory in Montpelier and highlight the opportunity for a second Montpelier street to plant 12 to 14 trees provided by the Montpelier Tree Board. 1:30–4 p.m. in the Hayes Room of Kellogg Hubbard Library.

All of this imagination can only make a difference, however, if we citizens of Montpelier embrace these solutions and accept the changes they will bring to our daily lives. But if we are going to adequately respond to the serious challenges of climate change, as well as economic and resource challenges, our lives will have to change. The real question is how soon we want to respond, and begin the “Greening of Vermont” on a 21st-century scale.

Ongoing Meetings:

Central Vermont Climate Action (CVCA) Meetings. First Monday and Third Sunday of Each Month. Next Meeting Monday, February 6

CVCA is a local group of 350Vermont committed to learning, planning, and acting together around climate change. We welcome you to the conversation! Monday, Feb. 6; Sunday, Feb. 19 and continuing each month, 7–8 p.m. Unitarian Church of Montpelier, 130 Main St., Montpelier. centralvtclimateaction@gmail.com; facebook.com/centralvtclimateaction

PoemTown Randolph 2017

PoemTown Randolph organizers are excited to announce the fourth annual celebration of poetry in Randolph throughout April, National Poetry month, and are seeking submissions from Vermont poets as the centerpiece of the month-long event.

PoemTown Randolph 2017 presents a public opportunity for Vermont poets to share their work. Throughout the month of April, posters of 100 selected poems will be displayed in the main windows and doors of businesses, churches, and organizations in the Randolph area. Past PoemTown displays and events have received strong support from local businesses and organizations, and similar enthusiasm is anticipated for the 2017 celebration.

Organizers are currently soliciting poetry submissions from poets of all ages residing anywhere in Vermont.  No more than three poems, each of 24 lines or less, typed or handwritten, should be submitted by mail no later than February 10 to Janet Watton, 1387 Davis Road, Randolph Center, 05061, or hand delivered to a special PoemTown mail box on the porch of Marjorie Ryerson at 36 Randolph Avenue in Randolph.   For purposes of blind judging, the poet’s name, city/town of residence, email address, and phone number must be entered on the reverse side of the submitted poem page.

Poets are asked to not resubmit work that has been displayed in previous Poetry Alive!, PoemCity displays in Montpelier, or PoemTown Randolph, or that has previously appeared in print.

By sending work to PoemTown 2017, poets agree that PoemTown may use any poem in display, in promotional materials, and associated online, print, and other media.

PoemTown organizers are planning special poetry events and poetry readings throughout April in several venues in town, culminating in a celebration at Chandler Music Hall. Further details will be announced later.

Questions or expressions of interest in planning PoemTown events can be addressed to Janet Watton via email at musbird@gmail.com or by phone at 802-728-9402. 

PoemTown Randolph is supported in part by a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council. 

Tax Season:

Twin Valley Senior Center and AARP are now scheduling appointments for Free Tax preparation. Call 223-3322 or email info.twinvalleyseniors@myfairpoint.net

    We’ll start each evening with a sing-along Song Circle using Rise Up Singing, the great collection of folk songs.  Then we’ll explore some circle singing:  lifting our voices in spontaneous harmony-rich songs.  We’ll sing renditions of both traditional songs and fresh brand new songs that we create together as we explore how to turn a simple melody into a living, changing, multi-layered song.  All voices and ages welcome.

    Heidi is a singer songwriter with a passion for sharing original compositions and folk songs inspired by and in service to community and the natural world.  She recently studied improvisation and circle singing with Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon and is excited to keep exploring! Heidi has been leading a cappella singing groups for over 10 years.  She currently leads the Plainfield Community Sing, teaches  courses at the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, directs the Ollabelles, and is an instructor for Village Harmony.

Art historian Debby Tait presents.

      “Majestic Moose”: Did you know that a cow moose can run 35 mph, hold
      100 lbs of food in her stomach, move each eye independently, remain
      underwater for long periods of time, and routinely give birth to
      twins? VT’s magnificent cow and bull moose have adapted in many ways
      to thrive in their woods-and water-based habitat. See amazing photos
      and learn about the surprising qualities that make this animal so
      fascinating. You’ll also hear about current threats that VT’s moose
      population is facing. Speaker Alison Thomas is the Education Programs
      Manager at the VT Fish & Wildlife Department. The dinner is $15 and

    The Public Service Board will hold three public hearings to give citizens an opportunity to provide feedback about the proposed merger between FairPoint Communications and Consolidated Communications. The first hearing is set for February 15th at 6:30 in Montpelier at Union Elementary School. Two additional hearings will take place; the second hearing is scheduled for February 21st at 6:30 at the St. Johnsbury Academy in St. Johnsbury and the third will be March 2nd at 6:30 at the Bennington Fire Facility in Bennington.

    The Public Service Department encourages Vermonters to provide input into the proposed merger between FairPoint Communications and Consolidated Communications.  “Public participation is an essential part of the Public Service Board process,” says Commissioner June Tierney, “this is a proceeding that will affect many Vermonters statewide.”  Representatives from the Department of Public Service will also be present at the public hearings to hear Vermonters represent their concerns.

    The Department will be reviewing financial, operational and service quality impacts on customers to inform its recommendations to the Public Service Board.  “The Department is committed to thoroughly reviewing the proposed merger to determine whether it is in the best interest of Vermonters,” says Jim Porter, Director of Telecommunications and Connectivity at the Department of Public Service.

    For updated information, please visit the Public Service Board website at http://psb.vermont.gov/. Vermont citizens may also comment on this proceeding by submitting comments in writing to the Department of Public Service, 112 State St., Montpelier VT 05602 or by calling the Consumer Affairs and Public Information Division at 802-828-4078 or by e-mailing psd.consumer@vermont.gov.  Additionally, a short web survey is posted on the Department website at http://publicservice.vermont.gov/.
