  • Coffee with a Cop

    Coffee with a Cop

    2016/10/01
    Capitol Grounds, State Street, Montpelier, VT, United States

    Capitol Grounds, State Street, Montpelier, VT, United States

    With the Montpelier Police Department.

    Oct. 1, 10 a.m.

    Capital Grounds, Montpelier

    Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

    In over 175 cities and towns in 36 states, “Coffee with a Cop” has done wonders for community trust, police legitimacy, and partnership building.

    Community members come to a local “Coffee with a Cop” for a variety of reasons, but no matter why, they are likely to leave with a more positive impression of their local police department.

    One of the keys to “Coffee with a Cop’s” success is that it removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving.

    Coffee will be provided at the event.

    The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

    Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration of the changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight-session blocks.

    Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; no individual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

    Free

    If you have questions about these support groups, contact Virginia Fry or Jean Semprebon at 802-223-1878.

      Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice, Granger Road, Barre, VT, United States

      10–11:30 a.m.

      Open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one.

      The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

      Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration of the changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight-session blocks.

      Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; no individual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

      Free

      If you have questions about these support groups, contact Virginia Fry or Jean Semprebon at 802-223-1878.

    The 22nd annual Throw-A-Thon, at which students and the general public create ceramic items from clay to sell, will be noon-midnight Oct. 14 at the Johnson State College ceramics studio.

    The fee for members of the public to participate is $5 per person. The artwork made is donated to the studio, where students dry, fire, glaze and re-fire the pieces to sell at JSC’s annual Holiday Ceramics Sale, which will be Nov. 16.

    Proceeds will go to Operation Smile, an organization that provides free surgery for children born with a cleft palate.

    Over the years, JSC has donated enough money to Operation Smile for 47 facial reconstructive surgeries, in addition to handmade quilts and hospital gowns. In recent years, the college’s donation has been matched by various corporations.

    The ceramics sale also has raised money for other organizations, including Vermont CARES and the Clarina Howard Nichols Center.

    The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

    Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration of the changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight-session blocks.

    Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; no individual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

    Free

    If you have questions about these support groups, contact Virginia Fry or Jean Semprebon at 802-223-1878.

    California documentary photographer Brittany Powell will discuss her project on personal debt on Oct. 26 at Johnson State College.

    Her talk about The Debt Project, 9-11 a.m. at the Stearns Student Center Cinema, is free and open to the public.

    Powell started the ongoing, multimedia project in 2013, a year after she filed for bankruptcy because of income loss in her photography business due to the Great Recession. She has photographed and collected stories from about 70 of the 99 people she plans to feature.

    Her subjects include seven Vermonters, who are a mix of students, the unemployed and “some very gainfully employed” people, she says.

    “Debt doesn’t typically affect a particular set of circumstances, but affects a broad range of people with a lot of varying circumstances, and Vermont was no different,” says Powell, a graduate fellow at the Headlands Center for The Arts in Sausalito, California.

    Ken Burn’s Defying the Nazis:  The Sharps’ War is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of World War II. It tells the previously untold story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, an American minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to a life-threatening mission in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save scores of imperiled Jews and refugees fleeing Nazi occupation across Europe.

    Revitalizing Waterbury is hosting the second annual Wicked Waterbury Halloween Costume Ball on Saturday, October 29 at the Country Club of Vermont.  The Halloween Ball is from 7:30- 11:30 pm and the tickets are $25 per person.  This year, RW has chosen to focus their fundraiser to support the Five Families Fund and the River of Lights Parade.

    Included in the ticket price is music and dancing, fun treats and cash bar.  An awesome silent auction is planned including items such as the Waterbury Beer Experience tour package, Dinner and a Concert with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, the ever popular Taste of Waterbury gift certificate package and a Mad River Valley Experience package that includes a glider ride, gift certificates and a one night stay for two at the Inn at Lareau Farm.

    Costumes are optional but encouraged.  Competition for best costume will be fierce and prizes will be awarded.

    The event is sponsored by Central Vermont Medical Center, People’s United Bank, Northfield Savings Bank and dozens of silent auction donors.  Tickets are $25 per person and are on sale online at www.revitalizingwaterbury.org, by calling 802-793-6029 or at the door.  In addition, the Waterbury Recreation Department is hosting a simultaneous Kids Night Out for interested parents.
