PHOTOGRAPHER TO DISCUSS LGBT VETERANS PROJECT AT JSChttp://www.montpelierbridge.com/event/photographer-to-discuss-lgbt-veterans-project-at-jsc/Johnson State College, College Hill Road, Johnson, VT, United States
Jo Ann Santangelo, an Austin, Texas-based professional photographer and documentarian, will discuss her multimedia project that features lesbian and gay military veterans on Nov. 1 at Johnson State College.
Her talk, free and open to the public, will be 6-7:15 p.m. in room 207 of Bentley Hall.
Santangelo’s project and self-published book, “Proud to Serve: Portraits of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Veterans,” focuses on 65 veterans around the country who were in the military during the “don’t ask, don’t tell” period that barred openly gay people from serving.
From 2008 to 2010, she talked with veterans, some of whom were discharged because they were gay. For more information, visit http://www.joannsantangelo.com/.
An Evening of Laughter, Courtesy of Playwright Neil Simon!http://www.montpelierbridge.com/event/an-evening-of-laughter-courtesy-of-playwright-neil-simon/Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Main Street, Montpelier, VT, United States
Come enjoy an evening of readers’ theater. Better yet, come and read one of the parts! We’ll be reading “Fools,” a side-splitting comedy by award-winning playwright Neil Simon. All those who wish to read will have the opportunity to do so. You’re also welcome to come and simply listen. The plot of “Fools” puts us squarely in the center of a fictitious Russian village which is living under a curse of stupidity. If the visiting hero remains in the village over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he, too, becomes stupid. The evening will be facilitated by Nancy Schulz.
Grief & Bereavement Support Grouphttp://www.montpelierbridge.com/event/grief-bereavement-support-group-5-2-2/Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice, Granger Road, Barre, VT, United States
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.
If you have questions about these support groups, contact Virginia Fry or Jean Semprebon at 802-223-1878.
