dren’s activities, drilling lessons, camp life activities, colonial games, tactical military demonstrations, and a re-enactment of the Battle of Hubbardton. “It’s an amazing and colorful pageant of history. It’s a wonderful event for families of all ages

First Friday tonight in Granville By Bo Young If you aren’t busy Friday night — heck, even if you are! — be sure to drop by the Pember and The Slate Valley Museums and see the new First Friday show. And come hungry, because The Burch Family Restaurant and Farm from Ft. Ann are going to be rocking the grill all night with their beefalo and salsas that elevate bbq-eating to an art form. The creative fine arts of the Grafton Valley Arts Guild will be on display at the Pember. Founded just this year in Grafton, Vt. The Slate Valley Museum will be showing the gorgeous gourds of Serena Kovalosky in a show titled “Gourd Spirit

Dancing.” Working with gourds, Serena considers herself an artist working in a medium traditionally relegated to the realm of “craft.” Kovalosky says her creative process is both “bringing nobility to craft” and opening “high art” to a wider audience. The quilts of Frances Holliday-Alford will also be on display. Shelleen McQueen’s jewelry doesn’t require a doctorate (though you might want to bring your wallet!). Both are appearing at the Pember along with sculptor Oliver Schemm. Andy Munger will be playing music for us again. Many of you know Andy from his real estate business, Snow Angel Realty, but he’s also pretty handy on a guitar and he’s one of our favorites.

4 – 7 pm at the church. Children ages 6-12 can choose from sixteen interesting hands-on, skill building workshops.

Summer Concerts

Bluegrass comes to Castleton Bluegrass and Gospel ------ an unique combination, but a great, powerful sound ---- and Castleton Concert on the Green will be the  place to experience this, when the Bluegrass Gospel Project brings  their multi-talented band to town, on Tuesday, July 5. What happens when seven of the best traditional acoustic musicians  and vocalists in the Northeast are brought together?   And then when they focus their repertoire on the free improvisation and sublime vocal harmonies of the spiritual side of Appalachian string band music and deliver their  performances to live audiences?  Well, it seems you get a piece of heaven.  And the Bluegrass Gospel Project  has done just that -- taken this spark and ignited audiences across  New England with high-spirited performances. Robert Resnick, Vermont Life Magazine and VPR host says,” The group is a force to be reckoned with onstage.  They are all fine players,  but their voices and harmonies can make you see the light and  tremble”  Steeped in the tradition of this powerful and uniquely  American strain of Appalachian music, the BGP crafts both classic and  original

Bluegrass Gospel Project plays at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Castleton. gospel-inspired bluegrass songs with impeccable instrumentation and pure vocal harmonies. In 2001, Gene White Jr., master fiddler and veteran of several  prominent New England bluegrass and country bands, was asked to assemble a special bluegrass collaboration.  So the call went out to  former Breakaway band member, guitar/singer, Paul Miller.  Also  recruited were, Vermont state banjo contest champ, Steve Light, premier singer-songwriter Colby Crehan, veteran coun-

try/bluegrass upright bassist Kirk Lord, and Northern Lights founder/mandolinist  Taylor Armstrong.  To lend focus to their repertoire, White narrowed their performance to the highly spirited sub-genre of bluegrass gospel   The concert is free and open to the public.  It will perform rain or shine. The rain site is the tent. on the Castleton State College campus.For further information, please call, (802) 273-2911.

Admission for all eight concerts is free and attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating. In the event of rain, performances will be moved indoors to the Fair Haven Baptist Church.

West Rutland starts a series of its own The Town of West Rutland is embarking on its first summer concert series held on the Town Hall Green. Concerts will be held Thursday evenings beginning July 14 through August 4. Chad Hollister, with Trevor McCullough, will kick off the series on July 14th, we welcome Distant Thunder July 21, and local music teacher Phil Henry will perform on July 28. The series closes with Carnival Hill on August 4th.

The RAVE Car Show will also join the fun on August 4. as a portion of Marble Street will be closed traffic. The newly renovated Town Hall auditorium is already a very busy place with community events, theatre, school concerts, fundraisers and movies. However, based on a survey conducted last summer, outdoor concerts was the most popular request by town residents. "Nestled in the center of

town, the Town Hall green presents the perfect outdoor setting, and if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate, the auditorium is available upstairs," said Rich Dow, recreation director. "It will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some local music and visit with your neighbors." This series has been generously supported with the help of our sponsors: Carris Reels, Stewart's Shops, Lake Sunapee Bank and Price Chopper.

Capman named to Vermont Principals' Hall of Fame One of the Lake’s Region's own has been honored for his contributions to the Poultney School District. Dave Capman, athletic director at Poultney High School, was recently inducted as a member of the Vermont Principals’Association Hall of Fame. A 1965 Poultney graduate and Castleton State alum, Capman has been involved with scholastic athletics for more than four decades.

He has coached five different sports, for a total of 99 seasons over his 42 year tenure. He has coached football every year of that span, basketball for 32 years, baseball for seven years, softball for three years and golf for 15 years. As one colleague explained, “a coach doesn’t last long unless he knows how to work with young people, parents, other coaches, and administrators. Athletics can be emotional, and Dave has that special gift of

working with people that has led him to be successful.” Many of his teams have enjoyed a great deal of success. He led the Blue Devils to state titles in baseball in 1972 and basketball in 1990, 1993, 1994, 1999 and 2001. The women’s golf team won in 2009 and the football team captured the Vermont title in 2007. Capman continues to coach football and golf.

because you can experience and visualize what happened,” explained Elsa Gilbertson, regional historic site administrator for the Hubbardton Battlefield Historical Site. And this year’s event is poised to be one of the largest in years. “It should be particularly interesting and exciting because more re-enactors than normal are coming to Hubbardton. We have 400 signed up already and may have as many as 500 by the time of the event,” said Gilbertson. Included among that group will be re-enactors portraying Hessian (German) soldiers, the first time in several years that they have attended the event. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore authentic military camps populated by reenactors, many of whom are willing to talk with guests. The camps will be set up on the grounds beside the museum and visitors will get an authentic view into the life of a soldier during the American Revolution. They’ll smell the aroma of food cooked in an iron kettle over an open flame, witness the day-to-day drudgery of life in a military camp and learn what a typical school day consisted of during the 18th century. There will be a children’s activity tent and a group of 18th century sutler’s displaying their wares and demonstrating

different skills such as hide tanning, open fire cooking and metal working. “There’s something interesting going on all the time,” Gilbertson said. The highlight of the weekend are the military tactical demonstrations on Saturday afternoon and the reenactment of the actual battle which is held at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning, approximately the same time as the real battle 234 years earlier. “It’s a lot of people’s favorite thing and it’s about the same time as the actual battle so you can imagine what that warm, muggy July morning must have felt like to the soldiers,” Gilbertson explained. “You hear the muskets go off and know something is happening. A short time later you see the re-enactors come over the brow of the hill and you begin to relive how it felt. You can smell and hear the sounds of the battle,” said Gilbertson. The historic site will also have its normal compliment of attractions open to the public, including a small exhibit focusing on American Revolutionary War Monuments, of which Hubbardton is the fifth oldest. The site will open at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and 7:30 a.m. on Sunday. Admission costs $5 for adults and is free for those younger than 15. There is plenty of free parking nearby and a “people mover” will be available to transport folks from the parking area to the battle ground. The Hubbardton Historical Society will have a variety of food available for purchase, including both breakfast and lunch fare. Living History weekend is offered by a partnership of the

Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, Living History Association, and the Hubbardton Historical Society with support from a number of local organizations and businesses. The Hubbardton Battlefield is located on 5696 Monument Hill Road, six miles off Vt. Route 30 in Hubbardton or 7 miles off exit 5 of U.S. Route 4 in Castleton. The site is open for regular hours Thursday through Sunday and Monday holidays through October 10, from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.

p.m. performance. Boy Scout Troop 13 will be running the dunking booth and there will be plenty of games, face-painting and balloon-art all day. The magic shows will run from 2 to 3 p.m., and the local bluegrass band ‘Gold Town’ will welcome the fireworks crowd starting at 6 p.m. DJ John Saltis works the prefireworks dance party. Grab your glow-necklaces from the Poultney High School cheerleaders and find your favorite spot on the field for the fantastic fireworks show at dusk. Come hungry, organizers said. Food vendors will bring a huge variety of summer carnival favorites to the celebration. Can you say fried dough? The Poultney Snowmobile Club will be cooking up Hotdogs, Hamburgers and French Fries, and the Barn Restaurant from Pawlet will be serving some melt-in-your-mouth pulled pork. The fireworks will be launched from the Poultney Elementary School as soon as the skies get dark enough as a grand finale for the day. Entertainment was funded in part by a grant from the Hills and Hollows Fund. Poultney’s celebration actually runs all weekend,starting with the Poultney Public Library’s Annual Book Sale on Saturday morning. Patrons can come and pick up their summer reading at a reasonable price starting at 8 a.m. Later, at 10 a.m., bring the kids and walk the streets of Poultney for more great deals at Poultney’s Annual Youth Flea Market, sponsored by the

Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce, the Poultney Downtown Revitalization Committee, the Poultney Recreation Department and the Poultney Rotary Club.

best parade in the county,” Lee said. The parade steps off at 10 a.m. from East Poultney and ends at Poultney Elementary School where the remainder of the day’s festivities will take place. The parade proceeds west on East Main Street to Main Street before continuing onto College Street and ending at the Poultney Elementary School grounds, following the traditional route. Among the parade participants will be the Catamount Bagpipes, a crowd favorite. “It’s a tradition, there always has to be a pipe band and they happen to be one of the best in New England,” Lee said. The Adirondack Cowgirls are now the Adirondack Drill Team, but the Washington County, N.Y.-based equestrian drill team will still impress the crowds with their acrobatic feats on horseback. They will also perform acts of equestrian skills at various times during the day as well as offering horse rides at the elementary school. The Rutland Curbstone Barbershop Chorus will be in the parade and will perform a number of patriotic songs at the elementary school after the parade ends. “Those men are fantastic,” Lee said. The Catamount Bagpipes will perform as well. Schedules of performances will be available the week prior to the celebration at all Poultney area businesses. The grounds of Poultney Elementary School will transform into a fun zone with something to do for everyone following the parade. The No Strings Marionette Company will put on its unique puppet show, “Handsome and Gretel,” which should keep the smiles wide and the laughter rolling with a 2

Mini Collages exhibit at Kittay Library in Rupert On Saturday, July, 3-5 p.m., the Kittay Public Library in Rupert will have an opening reception for Heidi Hammell. The art exhibit is a presentation of a wide variety of mini collages created by Hammell. Ms Hammell was born and raised in New Hampshire and, along with her husband, has lived in Vermont for most of her adult life. She graduated from Colby Sawyer College with a BFA in art education. In 2006 she was a participant in an art show called “Two by Two” where she was confined to creating within a two inch square. This was when she realized how working so small really suited her sense of order and precision. “For some, the restriction would be impossible to work with but for me, it was relaxing, intimate and exact. I was inspired immediately.”

She has chosen to keep each piece very small and intimate to encourage the viewer to stand close and really “see” each and every piece for its individual beauty, order and serenity. When not creating her collages, Ms. Hammell facilitates programs in her community for young children. She also teaches a variety of art classes and does face painting at parties and festivals The exhibit will continue until August 6th and can be viewed during Library hours. The library is located at 2728 Rte 153 in Rupert and is open Tuesday 2:30 - 5:30, Wednesday 10:00 - 2:00, Thursday 5:00 -7:00, Saturday 9:00 - 12:00, Sunday 1:00 – 4:00.  For more information about the Kittay library call 802-394-2444 or visit the library website at

Golf stories perfect for rainy days What a day! Rain followed by drizzle followed by more rain. When do we see the sun ? This is when golf stories and events start racing through my mind. Today, the Larson memorial tournament is scheduled at the Lake. I hope that the event will be played. The Larsons have been a strong part of golf history in the Rutland area as long as I can remember. They have produced some great players. When we can go back into history, of anything, we can set up a plan to see where we should be going! History should never, be pushed aside as old, but rather should be used as a springboard into the future. As the rainfalls, I feel like I am back in the classroom again. Let’s get to golf ! As many of you know, I have been registering your youngsters for our Junior Golf Clinic. I love to watch the kids come over to the table I’m at; some are hesitant and others come right over and take my extended hand. Most of the little ones (8-10) are shy, but some come right over. I make a mental note to watch how they will react when

The service committee needs to keep the projects moving, the board keeps the organizational structure moving forward and the members need to participate, this all takes much “behind the scenes support”.  The rewards for individuals who volunteer is enlightening, where else can one help a group of givers and not feel the success that their community is a bit better. Please contact ARC of Rutland County at 802 775-1379.

Friday at 10 a.m. is the deadline to submit items for the free calendar in the following week’s newspaper. Whenever possible, items should be submitted a week or more earlier than that to ensure timely publication.

By Joe DeCandia we get down to work. Kids are amazing, they seem to fight direction, but internally, they cry out for it. After, 30 years of classroom and coaching experience added to now, 51 golf years,I still love the challenge of working with your children. I urge you parents to steer your children to some interesting golf reading ! I don’t mean,’how to’ books but some early histories of the game as well as biographies of early golf greats. The classes run from Monday, July 11 to Wednesday, July 13. The eight to 10-year-olds are the first day, followed by 11 to 13 the second fay and 14 to 16 the last day. The classes start at 9 a.m. Parents, always feel free to sit in and OBSERVE, we would

love to have you there. Classes include, a rule book, divot tool, fundamentals, history of the game and for the older kids,a new session called “situational golf !” Tip of the week Earlier in the column I mentioned reading about golf. Some authors I would suggest are Bob Rotella, a Rutland guy, coach and golf mentor to the pros along the mental side of the game. Charles Price and anything he has written about Bobby Jones, the greatest amateur of all time. Let’s see if any of you can let me know what was unique about Ernest Jones ? I’m sure his writing will be enough to keep you OUT OF THE ROUGH !
