    Following the exhibit’s opening at JCOGS (Jewish Community of Greater Stowe,) and as a part of the Greater Stowe Interfaith Coalition and Community for Human Rights and Dignity, St. John’s is proud to be carrying forward the important lessons learned from the Holocaust. They are committed to encouraging and supporting a community in which we are all one.

    Knowledge is the most powerful tool in the fight against ignorance, intolerance and fear. By sharing stories of survival, and teaching their invaluable lessons learned, the Vermont Holocaust Memorial (a 501(c)(3) charitable organization) envisions a time when prejudice, bigotry and hate are replaced by respect for all. Additional information can be found on the organization’s website: holocaustmemorial-vt.org.

    St. John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church is a community of faith located at 1994 Mountain Road (at the crossroads of the Mountain Road and Luce Hill Road), Stowe, Vermont. For more information about St. John’s, please visit the website: stjohsinthemountains.org.

    • Most employers value the GED as highly as they do a high school diploma

    Horses are amazing, sentient, gentle beings that have a way of calming the soul and bringing inner peace to one’s self.   For those who are having a hard time in the grieving process, sometimes interaction with a horse can help where other interventions have fallen short. We are offering a 6 week support group program that will meet once a week for an hour.   Our intent is to keep the group small with no more than 6 participants plus volunteers and instructors. We will be able to provide referral resources if issues come up during sessions that someone would want to seek some professional guidance.

    The Vermont Weavers Guild will be holding it’s first meeting of the new fiscal year on September 9, 2018 at 10 AM- 11:30 AM at the Kimball House in Randolph, Vermont. We are a weaving guild that has been active for the past 70 years beginning around 1947. Our mission is “…to increase technical proficiency and artistic experience by providing a well-rounded educational program, to promote and maintain high standards of weaving, as well as related fiber arts, to share our knowledge and ideas and to bring together hand weavers.” We have 89 active members some of whom have been part of the guild since the 1950’s.

    September 9th will be a special celebration of our history and it’s 70th birthday. There will be a presentation of the history of the crafts movement in Vermont, highlighting weaving’s part in that history and excerpts from an audio taped interview from 1986 with Betty McKenzie one of the Guild’s founding members. Most importantly will be hearing stories first hand from well known weavers and Honorary Guild Members- Betty Atwood and Edith House. Guild memorabilia will also be on display as well as two quilts of hand woven squares done by guild members over the past year. The quilts will be raffled later in the fall.

    1189 Cape Cod Rd, Stowe, VT 05672, USA

    On Sunday, September 10th at 4pm the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe (JCOGS) presents the “Genealogy of Happiness”, a Vermont Humanities talk by Professor William Edelglass

    What is happiness? Can it be measured? And what is the relationship between happiness and virtue, money, pleasure, relationships, mindfulness, and satisfaction?

    This program with William Edelglass will begin with an overview of different conceptions of happiness in Western philosophy, religion, and political theory. We will then turn to the numerous claims about what makes us happy based on the results of “the new science of happiness.” We will conclude by reflecting on the findings of positive psychology in the context of the history of the idea of happiness.

    William Edelglass teaches philosophy, environmental studies, and Buddhist studies at Marlboro College. He has published widely in Indian and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, environmental philosophy, and 20th-century European thought. William has taught in diverse settings including the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, a federal prison in New York, and a Tibetan refugee settlement in Nepal. For many years he served as a wilderness guide at Outward Bound, and between 2000 and 2003 he taught Western philosophy to Tibetan monks at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala, India.

    This event at JCOGS is free, accessible, and open to the public. There will be light refreshments and conversation following the program. JCOGS is located at 1189 Cape Cod Road in Stowe. For more information please contact the JCOGS office at 802-253-1800 or go to JCOGS.org

    Horses are amazing, sentient, gentle beings that have a way of calming the soul and bringing inner peace to one’s self.   For those who are having a hard time in the grieving process, sometimes interaction with a horse can help where other interventions have fallen short. We are offering a 6 week support group program that will meet once a week for an hour.   Our intent is to keep the group small with no more than 6 participants plus volunteers and instructors. We will be able to provide referral resources if issues come up during sessions that someone would want to seek some professional guidance.

    The Benefits of a GED

    • Most employers value the GED as highly as they do a high school diploma
    • People with a GED or HS diploma make more money than those with no credential
    • Most colleges and universities recognize the GED as equal to a HS diploma

      • Most employers value the GED as highly as they do a high school diploma
      • People with a GED or HS diploma make more money than those with no credential

      To help elected officials understand issues affecting people with cancer, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is offering an opportunity for them to hear the personal stories of those impacted by the disease.

      To support Vermonters bringing these stories to Washington, D.C., ACS CAN is sponsoring a Lights of Hope Harvest Dinner on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 5:30 p.m. The event will take place on Langdon Street in Montpelier.

      The Harvest Dinner will feature amazing local food prepared by some top local chefs from the Three Penny Taproom, Langdon Street Tavern, Hunger Mountain Coop, Positive Pie, Alla Vita, Sarducci’s and 802 Coffee. As the food is enjoyed, jazz musicians Rob Morse, Jake Whitesell and Jeff Guerin will entertain participants. Langdon Street will be closed off for this event.

      Lights of Hope, illuminated bags, will line the street in honor of loved ones and those collected before September 4th, will go to Congress for a ceremony in front of the Lincoln Memorial. By being a part of the Community Street Dinner fundraiser in Montpelier participants will help send Vermont volunteers to D.C. to meet with Senators Leahy and Sanders and Congressman Welch to encourage them to make cancer a national priority.

      Tickets are $30 – call 802.917.5817 or click here.

      After Sept. 10, tickets will be $40.

      A ticket will get provide access to dinner, dessert and plenty of ambiance. There will be a cash bar onsite, live entertainment and a silent auction. Full tables are available for sponsorship. Sponsors will receive six tickets and program recognition.

      ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, supports evidence-based policy and legislative solutions designed to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.  ACS CAN works to encourage elected officials and candidates to make cancer a top national priority. ACS CAN gives ordinary people extraordinary power to fight cancer with the training and tools they need to make their voices heard. For more information, visit www.acscan.org.

    Horses are amazing, sentient, gentle beings that have a way of calming the soul and bringing inner peace to one’s self.   For those who are having a hard time in the grieving process, sometimes interaction with a horse can help where other interventions have fallen short. We are offering a 6 week support group program that will meet once a week for an hour.   Our intent is to keep the group small with no more than 6 participants plus volunteers and instructors. We will be able to provide referral resources if issues come up during sessions that someone would want to seek some professional guidance.

    Horses are amazing, sentient, gentle beings that have a way of calming the soul and bringing inner peace to one’s self.   For those who are having a hard time in the grieving process, sometimes interaction with a horse can help where other interventions have fallen short. We are offering a 6 week support group program that will meet once a week for an hour.   Our intent is to keep the group small with no more than 6 participants plus volunteers and instructors. We will be able to provide referral resources if issues come up during sessions that someone would want to seek some professional guidance.

    Harry deLeyer rescues Snowman off a truck bound for the slaughterhouse, and the unlikely pair go on to rock the world of championship horse jumping.  Snowman and Harry have a bond that shows up in the way the horse becomes a member of the deLeyer family, pulling a sled-full of kids in the winter and standing as a diving platform in the summer.  Filled with archival footage from jumping competitions, as well as Harry’s appearances on the Dick Cavett Show and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, this is docutainment at its best.  One of Harry’s riding students recalled his advice: “Throw your heart over the top, and your horse will follow.”
