Tinmouth singers to perform at library benefit The Spoon Mountain Singers of Tinmouth are celebrating the month of May with a benefit concert for the Rutland Free Library in the Library’s Fox Room on Monday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m. The a cappella chorus will be performing songs spanning six centuries by composers ranging from Monteverdi to Lennon and McCartney. The Spoon Mountain Singers have been performing in Rutland County for 15 years. Rehearsing in the shadow of Spoon Mountain, the ridge that divides Tinmouth and Middletown Springs, the group draws on local talent and on the rich a cappella music repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The directors are Robert and Susan Lloyd, but all 10 participants contribute their musical ideas. The Lloyds are Tinmouth

residents who have been directing choirs for more than 30 years. Bob Lloyd, organizer of the Chamber Singers of Cambridge and Boston, taught art and architecture at Phillips Academy in Andover. His wife Sue taught music and history at Phillips and led a student choir there. The couple founded the Spoon Mountain Singers in 1997 after taking early retirement. The group rehearses weekly around the dining room table at the Lloyds’ home in Tinmouth. “It’s a very democratic group,” says Sue Lloyd. “Everyone makes suggestions during rehearsals and sometimes we get in little brawls, all to a good cause. They’re just good constructive arguments about interpretation.” “We gather every week to sing around the table in Sue and Bob’s kitchen. I don’t

that can improve the lives of women and strengthen their families. Kunin was the first female governor of Vermont and the first woman in the U.S. to serve three terms as governor. She served as deputy secretary of education and ambassador to Switzerland in the Clinton administration. Kunin is the author of "The New Feminist Agenda; Pearls, Politics and Power; and Living a Political Life." She is also a Marsh professor at the University of Vermont, a commentator on Vermont Public Radio, and founder and board member of the global Institute for Sustainable Communities, a nongovernmental organization focused on climate change and civil society. She lives in Burlington, Vermont with her husband, John Hennessey.

Eqpvkpwgf"htqo"htqpv"rcig childcare, paid family leave, and equal pay for equal work remain elusive for most women. The U.S. has also fallen far behind other countries on the gender-equity front with fewer women holding federal offices and leading the nation’s top private companies. It’s time, says Kunin, also a former U.S. ambassador, to change that and usher in a new social revolution. Our inability to invest in families leaves us vulnerable to being reduced to second-rate status in the global economy. Looking back over five decades of advocacy, Kunin analyzes where progress stalled, examines the successes of other countries, and charts the course for the next feminist revolution—one that mobilizes women, and men, to call for the kind of government and workplace policies

And while next weekend’s event will be limited to Big Air, there will be demonstrations and explanations of other Dockdogs events. Those who aren’t prepared to enter their dog into the event are encouraged to attend as spectators. “The docks will be turned parallel to the porch so you’ll get a great view of the dogs running down the length of the dock,” said Jamieson. The Lake House Pub and Grill will be open and have refreshments and food available for purchase. Anyone who would to enter the event, can register beginning at 11 a.m. The jumps will begin at noon. The event is limited to the first 40 dogs to register. For more information, send an email to or visit their Facebook page at www. f a c e b o o k . c o m / GreenMountainDockDogs.

About Big Air The Big Air event is judged on the distance the dog travels in the air from the end of the dock. Distance is determined by measuring the distance from the end of the dock to where the tail breaks the water. The event is split into six different levels or divisions, based on the dogs’ ability. Dogs which have little experience, or cannot jump great distances, are entered into one of the lower levels, while more experienced or proficient dogs are entered at more competitive levels. Jamieson said they expect to have several experienced dogs, some of which will demonstrate the sport at a high level.
