How do trees affect rain, rivers, soil quality, nutrition and peace? Planting trees for fuel, shade, and food is not something that anyone would imagine as the first step toward winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Wangari Maathai, with thousands of women in the Green Belt Movement of Kenya, planted 35 million trees, reclaimed their country’s land from a century of deforestation, and enabled families to feed their children healthier food. She also won the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize. Join Shawn White for a viewing of the film, followed by a discussion about how planting trees in Montpelier can improve our rivers, soil quality and climate.

MPD will be holding our next Coffee with a Cop event on Saturday, 25 May 2019 at 9 AM at the Capital City Farmers’ Market on State Street in Montpelier.

What is “Coffee with a Cop” you ask?

It’s a simple concept. Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

In hundreds of cities and towns in all 50 states and 15 countries, “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.

Free coffee will be provided. All are welcome! We’ll see you there!

Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier.

On May 30, the water filtration plants in Montpelier and Barre will join 17 other facilities statewide to host open houses and public tours.

Attendance is free and Vermonters of all ages are invited to a first-hand glimpse of the science, high-tech, and human dedication that protect the public health and keep Vermont’s rivers and lakes clean.

Montpelier Water Filtration Facility, at 1480 Paine Turnpike, N. Berlin, will host tours at 9 a.m., 10:45 a.m., & 1:15 p.m. For more information, contact Geoff Wilson, chief operator, (802) 229-1404, bwtf@montpelier-vt.org .

Barre Water Filtration Facility, at 164 Reservoir Road, in Orange, will hold its open house from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, contact Steve Micheli, Department of Public Works’ assistant director, at (802) 476-0250 or smicheli@barrecity.org .

Facility visitors will see the many processes – filtration, UV light exposure, chemical treatment, sedimentation, biodigestion, testing, computer monitoring, and more – required to make surface waters safe to drink and wastewater safe to release back into natural waterways. They will also better understand the staggering volume of water processed by community water systems in Vermont: about 45 million gallons per day, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, all of it treated before use to make it safe to drink, and all of it treated again in wastewater facilities.

The two Central Vermont facilities are among 19 plants hosting tours, statewide, open to the public on Water Quality Day. For complete information on tour schedules and locations, visit https://www.gmwea.org/water-quality-day.html .

Water Quality Day events are sponsored by Green Mountain Water Environment Association (GMWEA); for more information, visit www.gmwea.org, or contact Daniel Hecht, executive director of GMWEA, at (802) 595-0997 or dan.hecht@gmwea.org.
