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!

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.

Should Montpelier Consider Smoke-free Areas?

Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Main Street, Montpelier, VT, United States
Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Main Street, Montpelier, VT, United States

In 2015, after years of discussion, Montpelier parks became smoke free. Last summer a team of U-32 students surveyed over 300 people in and around Montpelier to gauge community feelings about expanding the smoke free zone to the entire downtown area – “wherever there are parking meters.” The Coalition will make a presentation to the Montpelier City Council on October 26 to share the results of the surveys and invite a wider community discussion of the issue. A community forum at Kellogg-Hubbard Library on November 7 from 6:30-8:00 will share the results of the survey and give community members a chance to share their ideas and concerns about secondhand smoke and a smoke free downtown. Whether you support or object to a smoke free downtown, or just want to learn more – come join the discussion!

Climate Degradation and Local Preparedness with Michael Billingsley

Thursday, November 10 at 7 p.m.

Rapidly-warming Arctic oceans, melting Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, and other big effects such as the warming of Russian and Alaskan permafrost tundra, are shifting ocean currents, affecting our health and changing our weather.These somewhat unpredictable changes have never occurred before in known human history.  As it occurs, such degradation is going to challenge local patterns of weather, wildlife and insects, and may include more extreme rainfall, infestations of forests and problems we have never encountered before. Getting together and thinking ahead can solve and prepare for weather-caused local hazards and regional emergencies.

Best-selling Author, War Correspondent Sebastian Junger to Speak at Johnson State College

Johnson State College, College Hill Road, Johnson, VT, United States
Johnson State College, College Hill Road, Johnson, VT, United States

New York Times best-selling author Sebastian Junger will speak at Johnson State College 8-9:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10.

The talk, $10 for the general public and free for military veterans and JSC students, faculty and staff, will be at the Dibden Center for the Arts.

Junger is the author of “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging,” “The Perfect Storm,” “Fire,” “A Death in Belmont” and “War.”

For JSC’s first-year class this fall, “Tribe” is the “common book,” a shared reading chosen by a campus committee that is the basis of student discussions and college events throughout the fall semester.

Junger, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and special correspondent for ABC, has produced several documentaries about war. He also founded and directs the New York-based nonprofit Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC), which teaches freelance journalists in war zones how to respond to medical emergencies on the battlefield. Junger established the organization a year after his colleague and friend Tim Hetherington was killed while covering the conflict in Libya; had other journalists on the ground been trained in medical interventions, Hetherington likely would have been saved. All proceeds from the event will benefit RISC.

Tickets may be purchased starting Oct. 31 by calling the Dibden Center box office at 802-635-1476.

Dinner with “Tevye” — A Film and A Feast

10 Harrison Ave, Montpelier, VT, United States
10 Harrison Ave, Montpelier, VT, United States

Dinner inspired by 19th c. Russia by Helen Labun Jordan to be followed by the film “Tevye”, with an introduction by Rob Mermin.

DINNER: Artfully researched and prepared by food writer and VPR commentator Helen Labun Jordan, the festive meal will represent foods and recipes in the spirit of the Russian Pale of Settlement at the turn of the 20th century; a meal, perhaps, that Golde might have prepared for Tevye and their daughters. $20 per person/$36 per couple.

ABOUT THE FILM: The first Non-English Language Film to have been deemed “”culturally significant”” by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry, Maurice Schwartz’s 1939 adaptation of the classic Sholem Aleichem play centers on Khave, Tevye the Dairyman’s daughter, who falls in love with Fedye, the son of a Ukrainian peasant. Her courtship and marriage pit Tevye’s love for his daughter against his deep-seated faith and loyalty to tradition. Filmed in Poland by an American company, the film also has historical significance. Tevye’s world is a microcosm of the larger world of Russian Jewry in the early 1900s. (In Yiddish with English subtitles.)

“With all due respect to Zero Mostel and Topol in Fiddler on the Roof, it was Maurice Schwartz, the great Yiddish actor/director, who first showed Tevye the Dairyman in his full light as a mensch for all seasons. A rare opportunity to see Schwartz in what may have been his most magnificent role.”” -Judy Stone, San Francisco Chronicle

Film restoration & new English subtitles by The National Center for Jewish Film, www.jewishfilm.org.

Members – $20 single, $36 couple; Non-members – $25 single, $45 couple

*Film alone – $5 per person at the door. Film starts at 7:00 pm

"Crostic" talk and Community Puzzle Construction with Rick Winston

Jaquith Public Library, School Street, Marshfield, VT, United States
Jaquith Public Library, School Street, Marshfield, VT, United States

“Crostic” talk and Community Puzzle Construction with Rick Winston

Friday, November 18 at 7 p.m.

Anyone interested in words, games, and puzzles will have a treat coming up at the Jaquith Library. Rick Winston, who has been constructing twice-a-month “double acrostic” puzzles for the Times-Argus for ten years, will host a Community Puzzle Construction at the Jaquith on Crostic puzzles are related to crosswords in that they both involve answering clues. However, the final result of an acrostic puzzle is the uncovering a quote from a book. The first letter of each clue answer, read down, will spell out the name of the author and the title of the book. Rick will talk about the history of these puzzles and how they are constructed, with tips on how to solve them; then the group will all construct one from scratch, to be published in the Times-Argus in December.

Admission is free.

GREENSBORO – ANNUAL HOLIDAY CRAFT FAIR

Mark your calendars and come to the annual Holiday Craft Fair November 19 from 9 to 2 p.m. at Fellowship Hall at the UCC church in Greensboro.  This year the SERRV international artisans have produced an array of beautiful reasonably priced items which will tempt you and help with your Christmas shopping!  Several local crafters and artists will be showing their creations which include jewelry, beeswax candles, knitted goods, paintings, cards, Christmas wreaths, baked goods and food items, and other specialties.  Lunch will be available from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

The SERRV sales are life-changing for marginalized artisans and their families from underdeveloped countries because they provide the only outlet for their products. 90% of the SERRV proceeds go directly to the artists. The 10% retained by the church, as well as the table rentals by local artisans, are donated to programs supported by the Mission Board.  This annual fair is a great time to meet your friends, do your Christmas shopping in a non-commercial way.

Becoming A Father

Aldrich Public Library, Washington Street, Barre, VT, United States
Aldrich Public Library, Washington Street, Barre, VT, United States

11/21/16 6-8pm at Aldrich Library

Childbirth is an extremely profound experience for a couple. Dads are acutely aware that it’s only the beginning of a great adventure. The birth opens the door to their new life as a parent.

In this fatherhood class, men will gain perspective from discussing the road that lies ahead. A new father’s mind may be swimming with questions: How long should I take off work? What do we need to have at home to be prepared for the baby? How do I figure out how to pay the bills and still have enough time to be with my wife and baby? Is there sex after childbirth? I’m worried my wife will be totally focused on the baby and not have any time for me. Do you think we should use cloth or disposable diapers? Is it possible to breast- and bottle-feed? I want to make sure I can care for the baby, too. How long should we wait before relatives can visit? The list goes on and on!

This class helps men give voice to their concerns about becoming a dad, gain support, and start the process of making decisions. Instructor- Josh Miller
