The artists will present images, drawings, plans, or models as available. The Roxbury project is part of the Vermont Art in State Buildings Program administered by the Vermont Arts Council in partnership with the Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services.

    General Surgeon Dr. Ovleto Ciccarelli is offering skin cancer screenings at Gifford’s Community Health Centers throughout the summer. These private screenings are free and open to everyone, not just Gifford patients.

    Dr. Ciccarelli notes that early skin cancer warning signs can appear on hard-to-see areas of the body, or in areas that might be difficult to find for the elderly or people living alone. He is concerned about an increase in the number of patients he sees with basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and malignant melanomas.

    This thorough, full-body screening will identify any problem areas and Dr. Ciccarelli can suggest follow-up care if needed. To schedule an appointment call 728-2430.

    Beth Stern from Central Vermont Council on Aging and Nina Thompson from the Wake Up To Dying Project will show the 1 hour movie, Being Mortal, and follow with a discussion of these important issues. The movie follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In conjunction with Gawande’s new book, Being Mortal, the film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors — himself included — are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

    Randolph resident and long-time representative Marjorie Ryerson will regale us with the fascinating adventures and travel stories that led to the creation of her beautiful book of photographs and lyrics in Water Music. The book came about through an accidental photo that Ryerson took, before developing into a project involving people from around the world, and has inspired the creation of a Vermont-based non-profit organization with an international reach and focus that is designed to help protect and raise awareness about the Earth’s waters. Ryerson’s discussion of this journey of discovery through environmental activism begins at 7 p.m. on July 12th.  This event is sponsored by Magee Office Supply.

      Beth Stern from Central Vermont Council on Aging and Nina Thompson from the Wake Up To Dying Project will show the 1 hour movie, Being Mortal, and follow with a discussion of these important issues. The movie follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In conjunction with Gawande’s new book, Being Mortal, the film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors — himself included — are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

    Guster To Headline Fourth Annual Do Good Fest

    Free Music Festival To Benefit Cancer Patient Fund

    Guster, an alternative rock band based in New England, will headline the fourth annual Do Good Fest on July 15, National Life Group and The Point radio network announced Monday.

    Guster, known for such hits as “Satellite” and “Amsterdam,” has been on a 25th anniversary tour over the past year, which concludes later in the summer.

    “Guster is a great fit for the Do Good Fest,” said Mehran Assadi, National Life’s chairman, CEO and president. “Not only has the band created great music for many years, the members are also active in their community, just as we are.”

    The Do Good Fest Presented by The Point is a free day of music, food, family activities and fireworks. National Life underwrites the cost of the day and all the proceeds from parking fees of $20 per vehicle are donated to the Branches of Hope cancer patient fund at Central Vermont Medical Center.

    The festival will held on the natural amphitheater of National Life’s Montpelier headquarters with spectacular views of Camel’s Hump. Gates open at 2:30 p.m. and the music begins at 4. There will again be food trucks around the region, a beer and wine tent, a Nonprofit Village and family activities. Guster’s show will be capped by a fireworks display.

    In addition to Guster, Burlington-based Kat Wright will also perform, as will Dwight & Nicole, who are also based in Burlington.

    The Do Good Fest is sponsored by National Life, The Point, Seven Days, Montpelier Alive, Harpoon Brewery and the National Life Group Foundation. Over the first three years of the Do Good Fest, $56,000 has been raised for Branches of Hope.

    “The music, food and fun are all great, but the real purpose behind the Do Good Fest is to raise money for cancer patients who are struggling to pay their bills during treatment,” Assadi said.

    2017/07/17

    General Surgeon Dr. Ovleto Ciccarelli is offering skin cancer screenings at Gifford’s Community Health Centers throughout the summer. These private screenings are free and open to everyone, not just Gifford patients.

    Dr. Ciccarelli notes that early skin cancer warning signs can appear on hard-to-see areas of the body, or in areas that might be difficult to find for the elderly or people living alone. He is concerned about an increase in the number of patients he sees with basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and malignant melanomas.

    This thorough, full-body screening will identify any problem areas and Dr. Ciccarelli can suggest follow-up care if needed. To schedule an appointment call 728-2430.

    • Workshop # 2 – Bee hotels are homes for the calm and gentle solitary bees, not honey bees. These bee hotels help build a better world for pollinators because then the bees can spend their time pollinating plants and laying eggs   instead of building homes for their babies from scratch.

      • Workshop # 2 – Bee hotels are homes for the calm and gentle solitary bees, not honey bees. These bee hotels help build a better world for pollinators because then the bees can spend their time pollinating plants and laying eggs   instead of building homes for their babies from scratch.

    The Winooski Pedal and Paddle

    All day
    2017/07/23

    An exciting new event is happening in the Winooski Valley this summer. On Sunday, July 23rd, the Friends of the Winooski River, Winooski Valley Park District, and the City of Winooski are partnering on the inaugural Winooski Pedal and Paddle, a combination cycling and paddling event that is sure to be fun for the whole family!

    Participants will travel through some of the most scenic areas of the Valley on the 7-mile loop course connecting the cities of Burlington and Winooski. Whether you’re looking for a workout or a laid-back adventure for you and the kids, this community event will serve as a fun Sunday outing. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy games at the Homestead after you finish the course.

    “The three organizations behind this event all work on conservation efforts in the lower Winooski watershed,” says Larry Montague, Outreach Coordinator for Friends of the Winooski River. “This family-friendly event will raise awareness about the need for continued protection of our waterways and natural areas. All fees directly support restoration work in the watershed.”

    Here’s how it will work: After leaving their canoe or kayak at the launch site in Winooski, participants will drive to the Ethan Allen Homestead in Burlington for start of the pedal portion of the event. The approximately 4-mile bike ride is predominantly on dirt paths and roads along the river through the Intervale to Winooski proper.

    Once in Winooski, folks will park their bikes and launch in canoe or kayak from just below the Winooski 1 Dam. The 3-mile paddle back to the Homestead on the Winooski River winds through the beautiful Intervale. This stretch of river is relatively flat and calm. Volunteers will guard watercraft and bikes at the Winooski launch site throughout the event.

    Boat drop-off in Winooski will happen from 9:45-10:15am sharp. Bikes will depart from the Homestead to Winooski between10:15-11:00am. Programming at the Homestead will start around noon and wrap-up at 3:30pm (bring a picnic lunch!) Volunteers will guard bike racks at the Winooski launch site until 4:30pm. Participants are responsible for picking up their bikes by this time.

    Registration fees are as follows: $20 (ages 17 & up); $12 (ages 10 to 16); free under 10. All proceeds go to protect and restore the Winooski River watershed. Volunteer support is also needed to make this a successful event. Those interested in volunteering will find many job opportunities at http://signup.com/go/R7HmBR.

    General Surgeon Dr. Ovleto Ciccarelli is offering skin cancer screenings at Gifford’s Community Health Centers throughout the summer. These private screenings are free and open to everyone, not just Gifford patients.

    Dr. Ciccarelli notes that early skin cancer warning signs can appear on hard-to-see areas of the body, or in areas that might be difficult to find for the elderly or people living alone. He is concerned about an increase in the number of patients he sees with basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and malignant melanomas.

    This thorough, full-body screening will identify any problem areas and Dr. Ciccarelli can suggest follow-up care if needed. To schedule an appointment call 728-2430.

    Co-sponsored by: Central Vermont Prisoner Support, The Make, Burdock Distro, and others.

    Please join us for a community discussion about how activists can strengthen their ability to navigate criminal legal charges. This presentation and discussion are based on the ideas in the recently published book, A Tilted Guide to Being a Defendant. The Tilted Scales Collective is excited to bring you this comprehensive guide about facing charges in the criminal legal system. Rather than being a how-to guide, this book offers a framework for thinking about criminal charges that is based on defendants’ goals: personal, political, and legal.

    This event is also a fundraiser for folks facing charges from the innaugural protests in D.C, with local herbalists and zine distros donating a portion of their proceeds to support J20 defendants. For more info about their case, check out: http://defendj20resistance.org/

    The full book will be available at a discount and a chapter-length excerpt (Chapter 2, on setting goals) will be available by donation.

    Have you executed an Advance Directive for Health Care? Or has it been over 3 years since you last updated it and all your family contacts have changed or are deceased?  Have you registered it so that someone can find it and follow your personal wishes at a time of crisis? Do you have a Vermont specific document? If you answered “NO” to any of these questions, or if you are wondering about new options, join us to learn more about Advance Directives!  While there are no right or wrong answers, there are important decisions that are best made well in advance. Actually doing this process can bring peace for you, your health care providers and your significant others or family members.  Bring them along if you wish! Presented by MSAC member Mary Alice Bisbee, M.S., Human Services/Gerontology, Notary Public, and long-time hospital and nursing home social worker.

    A Sweet Evening at the Barre Heritage Festival

    Old Labor Hall, 46 Granite St, Barre

    Sponsored by Delicate Decadence

    This year, the Sweet Evening is sponsored by Delicate Decadence Cake Boutique in honor of the late Chet Briggs, long time President of the Barre Historical Society for the benefit of the Society and the Barre Heritage Festival.

    The evening is divided into three exciting components—all for one low price.

    French Dessert Competition

    At 5:00 pm, before the doors open to the public, contestants who fancy the quality of their French desserts will have their desserts judged by a panel of professional judges. There are three ways to enter the competition:

    – On July 27, bring your dessert to Delicate Decadence (15 Cottage Street, Barre) by 4:00 pm.

    – On July 27, bring your dessert to the Old Labor Hall no later than 5:00 pm.

    No late entrants will be allowed to enter the competition.

    French Dessert Tasting

    After the judging, at 5:30 pm, the doors will open to the public. This is your opportunity to sample the contest entries supplemented by more delicious desserts provided by the chefs of Delicate Decadence. Bon appétit!

    French-Canadian music performed by Va-et-vient, (Come & Go),

    At 6:00 pm, Va-et-vient, a trio comprised of Carol Reed, Suzanne Germain, and Lausanne Allen hailing from Addison County will take you from 16th century France to New Orleans and Québec with lively reels, touching love songs, kickin’ Cajun tunes, and rollicking Québecois favorites. From neighbors to the north, they bring back new old tunes learned from Québecois elders (and youngsters!), reweave them into their own arrangements, and have been spreading them throughout New England and Québec since 2001. Venez chanter avec nous !
