Your cooperation in assisting the Public Works Department with snow removal operations by observing these parking restrictions is greatly appreciated.

Forks were not brought over on the Mayflower. They were not introduced for another 10 years and did not come into popular use for many more years! Joanne Van Meter is the librarian at Wells Village Library .

It is written in the first person from the point of view of 16 different characters, eight northerners and eight south-
erners—male, female, black, white, old, young, soldier, and civilian. The award-winning book focuses on the social context of the war, the run-up to the first battle of the war, and its aftermath as well as on the battle itself.” Books are available at the library if you would like a copy to read yourself before or after the program. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of Castleton Free Library. Free and open to all.

Skene Manor holds basket party By Derek Liebig
izing the area’s malls and big stores the day before. “It’s a lot of fun and people really look forward to it,” said Joan. Jean and Joan, who are often called upon by other organizations for their expertise in planning basket parties — they played a role in the Distinguished Young Women basket party last month — spend months planning the event. “We started nearly two months ago. You have to start early,” said Jean. “The last two weeks are real busy, but there’s a lot of background work before then,” said Joan. Baskets aren’t the only items that can be had at the party. There will be a number of raffle items (a raffle ticket is included with admission), including a Kindle Fire, a handmade quilt, and four dinners for two (valued at $240) at the manor. Organizers will also announce the winners of the
If you’ve never seen a small fireplace inside a basket, chances are you’ve never been to the Skene Manor Basket Party. The event features at least 100 baskets — sometimes more — and is one of the largest events of its type in the area, attracting upwards of 300 people. “It’s the largest one-day fundraiser for the manor,” said Jean Vladyka, who organizes the event each year with her twin sister Joan. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 24, in the drill room of the former Whitehall Armory, now the Whitehall Athletic Club. “It’s always held on the S a t u r d ay f o l l ow i n g Thanksgiving,” said Joan. “People know the Saturday after Thanksgiving is the basket party.” For many, the event is an enjoyable alternative to throngs of overzealous shoppers patron-

When reading obits, a photo at the beginning is a bonus, but it also can bring hurt, and fast. I could feel tears welling in my eyes as I remembered the quiet little girl running up and down the lil’ gal (third and fourth grade) basketball court. She was learning the basics as I had learned on the K of C court in Rutland.
Twig remembers Heidi Durkee
Short breaks for instructions were great. I would look out and see them making new friends (peewee boys and lil’ gal girls hoops was open to both Fair Haven and Castleton third and fourth graders. Besides learning how to dribble (both hands was a must), all the basic passes, basic shooting techniques and the basics of defense they were starting basic
social skills that would help them: in high school, in college, in the military and anywhere that their lives would take them to meet new people. Rest in peace, Heidi, but be ready and alert for he must have something very special in mind for these people he takes at these very young ages. God bless you, Heidi Durkee. -- Twig Canfield

Back in the 1950s, everybody in town knew not only everyone else who lived in town, they also knew who their best friend was and who they were related to. It was easy to contact a telephone operator: Just pick up the phone and you would hear “number please” and you were apt to hear, “Is that you Twig? If you’re looking for your dad, call back in 10 minutes, he just went over to pick up coffee for the gang at the Era office.” I would go back to the fifties in a Monday minute. Everything

was so personal, so small townish, so homey. Back then if you needed to know anything that was going on in town all you needed was a friend who was a telephone operator.

I have always thought that Yvonne had one of the most beautiful smiles in Fair Haven. May God be with you, Yvonne Pereau. -- Twig Canfield

Mettawee donations on way to Sandy victims
School pitches in for N.J. storm victims
Brooke Burnham moved to West Pawlet in 2005 with her husband Scott, and children Olivia and Owen. Despite living their entire lives until then in the townships of Point Pleasant, Brick and Manalapan, N.J., Burnham said, “I always felt my heart belonged in Vermont.” When Superstorm Sandy caused havoc on the East Coast, Burnham said her heart “... just broke for all the families that were affected.” Many of her friends’ homes were destroyed in these New Jersey coastal towns. A couple of days post-Sandy, and after watching all the news and seeing the magnitude of devastation, Burnham spoke with the Mettawee Community School principal, Brooke DeBonis, and proposed the idea of doing a

to help my former hometown and surrounding communities in such a situation,”

Burnham said. “My family and I absolutely love living in West Pawlet and being part of an amazing community. But we will never forget where our roots began in New Jersey.” Burnham and her husband will be delivering the donations to their former hometowns, as well as bringing items to distribution centers where families can receive food, clothes, blankets, etc. “Let us never forget any of these life-changing storms,” said Burnham. “And please remember that wherever there is need in our country that there is a local need too. Local food pantries are in constant need of restocking and local fuel assistance programs need donations as well. Always try to pay it forward as you never know when you will need the help yourself.”

Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train program is considered the longest fundraising program in North America. Each year, the train travels approximately 6,000 miles through Canada and the United States, visiting more than 150 communities and raising money and awareness for local food banks. Since 1999 the train has collected 2.6 million pounds of food for local food banks. Everything that is collected in each community the train visits remains in that community. Canadian Pacific also makes monetary donations in the communities it visits. Each Holiday Train is about 1,000 feet long and features a box car that has been converted into a traveling stage for performances by well-known musical acts. This year’s performers are the Claytones, a “Canadian brand of country-soaked roots music” and Tracey Brown, a member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Admission to the Holiday Train is free, although everyone who attends is strongly encouraged to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the Whitehall Food Pantry.
