Middletown Continued from front page During the ceremony on the Green that follows the parade, Master of Ceremonies Robin Chesnut-Tangerman will pay tribute to those whose efforts on the “home front” supported the troops and kept Vermont’s towns and farms running in the absence of those who were serving “over there.” Mention will be made of our town’s one military loss, Private Mosely Hastings Gray, who was killed in action on October 23, 1918, within weeks of the declara-

tion of peace. A highlight of this year’s ceremony will be two performances by students of Middletown Springs Elementary School. “I’m Thinking of You,” a choral reading by the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders who wrote this collaborative poem, will be followed by a student rendition of “In Flanders Fields” by Canadian poet John McRae. Winners of the annual Memorial Day posters, poems, and essays contest will be announced, along with presentations of certificates and prizes to winners of the float competition and the area-wide fire

department and rescue squad contest. The event will close with the raising of the flag, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the traditional honor guard salute, accompanied by the Mill River Marching Band. The Middletown Springs Volunteer Fire Department will have hamburgers, hot dogs, baked goods, popcorn, soft drinks, and water for purchase on the southwestern edge of the Green, not far from a canopy featuring a display of all entries from this year’s Memorial Day student writings and art contest.

House Blend is a delightful group of musicians who get together to sing for the fun of it. Larger than most of our performing groups, it somehow fits inside the small Tinmouth Firehouse perfectly. Many are music teachers or professional performers; all have well trained voices. Their repertoire is as wide as the membership – instead of one director, they take turns leading songs they have chosen. They perform songs from all over, and from many periods. “A capella singing group” (Singing without instrumental accompaniment) is their only musical classification, for the musical genre varies from one song to the next. Concert is on Friday, May

efit the American Cancer Society. For more information and to pre-register visit www. You can also register the day of the event. Dogs must be at least six months old to participate, must be current on all of their shots and be on a leash at all times. Owners are responsible for any clean up, bags will be provided. This Bark for Life event is sponsored by Rutland Regional Medical Center, Carris Reels, Parks for Paws, Ltd. and The Draught Room and Clubhouse Grill.

Pug Party this Saturday in Dorset Join Milla, the Dorset Library’s official pug, as she hosts her first pug party on May 19, from 1-3 p.m. This exciting spring affair will be held on the lawn at the Dorset Library, weather permitting (give us a call if in doubt). At this fun-filled community event, all ages are welcome and all well-behaved dogs. A special invite is extended to any pugs and their families. The highlight of the event will be readings by author, Kimalee Wassick. Wassick has been working as a pro-

fessional artist since graduating from Endicott College in 1983 where she studied graphic design. She is well known for her colorful paintings, sculptures, murals and whimsical interiors. Wassick has written and illustrated a series of Basil & Prune the Pug books, depicting the lives her granddaughter, Basil, and Basil’s pug named Prune. Wassick will perform two separate readings during the party. You can also try your creative hand at pug-themed crafts, relax on the lawn

with some of our delicious snacks (mostly for people, but there will probably be something for the dogs, too), maybe win a prize in one of the contests, read about the history of the pug, or test out your athletic skill with some of our yard games. You can also visit with our other special guests, Green Mountain Pug Rescue, to learn more about the breed and the adoption process.

Homosexuality, faith discussed at Lifetree Café How God feels about homosexuality will be explored at Lifetree Café on Monday, May 21 at 7 p.m. Admission to the 60-minute event is free.

Yuan, a professor at Moody Bible Institute, shares his story of finding a Christian faith and wrestling with his sexuality as a gay man.

And there are days when I doubt that.” Participants in the Lifetree

program will have an opportunity to discuss issues relating to homosexuality and faith in a safe, caring environment.

Free community presentations by renowned substance abuse expert Youth substance abuse is a concern in Rutland County.

Here are some grim statistics from a 2016 Vermont Young Adult Survey: In Rutland County 43 percent of young adults binge-drank in the last 30 days; 44 percent of young adults used marijuana in the last 30 days; and 12 percent of young adults used prescription stimulants for non-medical purposes in the past year. Meanwhile 10 percent of high school students have drank alcohol before the age of 13 and nine percent of high school students have misused a prescription stimulant or pain reliever. These stats are from a 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. Families and community members ask these questions time and again: Why do teens love risk-taking, including using alcohol and drugs? How

do addictive drugs change the adolescent brain? “Green Mountain College is delighted to host such a nationally recognized expert on the impact of substance use on the developing brain, and to be able to do so for our whole community at no cost. We are grateful to the Partners for Prevention of Rutland County for making this timely and important presentation possible.” said Peg Gregory, LICSW, with Green Mountain College.

Madison Brewing Company will be featuring their recent release of their canned brews. “We’re always looking at ways to create something new and fresh,” says Will Gardner of Hopridge Farm. “We just had a very successful event with our homebrewers at the sold-out Wings and Winter Homebrew Festival in Bennington. When we were discussing options for the Rock N Brews series, we thought highlighting the success of Madison’s new canning process would be a great concept.” The brew portion of the event is managed by Hopridge Farms, organizers of the 4 Corners North Homebrew Festival and the award-winning Southern Vermont Wings and Winter Homebrew Festival.

Racers of the marathon are encouraged to attend the celebratory event as well and receive a discount on the tickets for them. “This is an important event to us as it’s our first event opportunity in the Northshire,” adds Matt Harrington, executive director. “As we look to regionalize the chamber, along with our services and events, we wanted to make sure we spread our events from both Shires. We have a couple other event partnerships that we’ve been working on that we’re excited to roll out in the Northshire as well. Whether a resident or a visitor, you will be

able to celebrate the great things that make this region so unique. Spirits of Old Bennington will be there pouring samples of their signature spirits. To top it all off, Hound Dogs will be the featured food vendor along with Lulu Pouf organic cotton candy. Please come out and support the runners as they are starting at Bennington College and finishing the race in the Northshire Civic Center - Riley Rink at Hunter Park where Rock N Brews - Concert Series will be waiting to celebrate!
