Women’s choir seeks singers Ladies’ Night Out Women’s Choir is starting up fall rehearsals on Sept. 18 for performances the weekend and Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Women who would like to join the group should contact Lucy Allen Tenenbaum, director, for a chance to do some “musicking” (music making in the 21st Century!) This is not an audition but an opportunity to sing together and find out where each voice fits in the choir. All voice parts are needed to fill out the choir. Heidi Soons, VSO harpist, will accompany John Rutter’s “Dancing Day Cycle.” Other music includes a shape-note song, and several with African drums. Jacob McLaughlin is again our rehearsal accompanist, and will also play in the performance. A sing-along group will also be part of LNO this season, so come one come all! There is a place for every voice. This Advent program is structured so each singer can choose what part of the music they want to sing, and participate accordingly. If you’ve wanted to sing with “the Ladies” this is the season to try us out. If you’ve started the choir before only to find it too challenging, consider try-
ing us again. Some of the music will be taught by rote, with no sightreading. Singers of all levels will find something in this semester’s music that’s just right for them! The new approach to choral singing comes from conductor Tenenbaum’s master in music education courses at Kansas University that she took this summer. An inclusive community choir is the goal. There will be a select section of the choir, but not all singers need strive for that level. Women of all ages are welcome. Musicking will include some solfege (do-re-mi, etc.), drums and other percussion instruments, some choreography and a whole lot of fun. Come learn about choir building and enjoy Lucy’s new techniques! As always, the focus of the group is about meeting new friends while making wonderful music. There is a snack provided each rehearsal. A $25 fee is requested from each singer for choir expenses. Donations are welcome! The Ladies look forward to meeting you! Call Lucy at 802-775-8004 or 802-342-8348, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hubbardton military road guided hike Did you know that a military road was built, starting in late 1776, to connect Mount Independence in Orwell with Hubbardton and beyond? On Sunday, Sept. 16, from 2 to 5 p.m., Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site interpreter Carl Fuller will lead a vigorous hike along a section of this little-known military road. The hike starts at the battlefield museum building, and heads west following traces of the old military road that led toward Mount Independence. Hikers will see the area where
the first shots of the Revolutionary War Battle of Hubbardton were fired on July 7, 1777, and get a taste of what it might have been like for the soldiers traveling over this varied terrain.

Teamwork key to Pawlet book sale Pawlet Public Library’s 45th annual book sale showed the power of teamwork. All year, generous donors drop books for us at the library. A faithful group of volunteers sort box, and label books continuously from August to July. “Week of ” volunteers, move, set up, groom, and sell books. Our 2012 proceeds were phenomenal, coming in just $35 short of $11,000. Our local volunteer force from Pawlet, North Pawlet, West Pawlet, Wells, Rupert, Dorset, Manchester, Poultney, Granville and Hampton worked with summer volunteers from Pennsylvania and Florida. Oxbow Mountain 4-H Shooting Sports Club and local area youth again transported over 25,000 boxed books from the Circle of Healing to Mettawee Community School. Parents, grandparents, and adult volunteers directed traffic at the school as our inventory of books were ready to be prepped for sale. A gathering of “book sale groomers” transformed the school into a book shoppers
dream. Our devoted Pawlet book sale bakers prepared and sold mouth-watering treats to benefit the library. The Book Lovers Café served up breakfast treats, luscious burgers and McKenzie hot dogs. The sixthgrade class of Mettawee Community School thoroughly cleaned up in a flash. Special thanks to Telescope Furniture, Vermont Country Store, Pawlet Potter, Mach’s Market, RK Miles, and J.K. Adams for great raffle and silent auction prizes. Wells Country Store, Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts and Bagel Works generously donated our breakfast treats. Through the kindness of Rutland Hannaford, Manchester Price Chopper, and Manchester Shaw’s, we served great meals to our volunteers. The Granville Price Chopper staff deserves special recognition. “The Chop” gives us generous financial support and when it comes to service, the food court folks make sure our “Big Move Pizza Party” is awesome. Lakes Region FreePress and Vermont News Guide, the coverage you gave us was terrific. Our sincere thanks goes out to Judy Leach of Lakes Region Radio, who chatted with us on
“Coffee Break” and designed our ads! Spur of the moment shoppers testified to the effectiveness of those radio ads. Northshire Book Store, Mark Skinner Library, Kittay Public Library, Dorothy Canfield Fisher Library, Wells Public Library and Middletown Springs Public Library, your generous support is so valuable to us. Southern Vermont Sign Works donates the banners you see in down town Pawlet and the corner of Routes 30 and 153. Thanks to Mettawee Community School for your invaluable support and generous use of the school. We are especially grateful to the Pawlet Cemetery Association for providing emergency storage when Irene devastated our usual sorting spot at Edie Mach’s Barn. We are so thankful to the folks at The Circle of Healing for giving our sorting operation a new home. Volunteer time, energy and enthusiasm and team work are the keys to our success. We salute all our volunteers who give their valuable time to our annual book sale efforts. We are appreciative of everyone who bought our books, raffle tickets and food. Thanks to all
our volunteers, sponsors, supporters and customers. See you next year! If you would like to donate books or volunteer to sort, please call the library at (802) 325- 3123 or Dolores at (802) 6450109. Dolores Luebke, Chairman, Pawlet Public Library book sale

Community Access Program celebrates
National Direct Support Professional Week September 9-15, 2012
A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to all the Support Specialists, Employment Consultants, Specialized Support Staff, Shared Living Providers, Contracted Workers and Respite Providers for your dedication, skill and commitment that you share on a daily basis! CAP is an affiliate of Rutland Mental Health Services Community Care Network www.rmhsccn.org
of Commerce, Batten Kill Valley Runners and Stratton Mountain Resort. The Maple Leaf committee members have received many favorable comments from visitors, mentioning the beauty of the area, the helpfulness and friendliness of our volunteers and indicating they will be sure to come back in the future. This very successful event could not have come to fruition without the generous support of all our sponsors. I would like to especially recognize the following: Our title sponsors, the Hathaway family and friends, and our presenting sponsors, The Perfect Wife, The Spiral Press Café and MVP Health Care. In addition to our sponsors, many community members and organizations pitched in to help in a variety of ways. We had about 150 individual volunteers involved in tasks such as; traffic control, responsible for keeping runners on course and safe from traffic hazards, providing water, driving the lead and trailing vehicles, assisting in runner registration, and identifying and announcing runners in the finish area. A very special thank you must go to the Town Select Board, John O’Keefe, town manager, Lee Krohn, town planner, Tricia Hayes, communications coordinator for the town project, and the Schulz Construction Co. and their employees. These are the people who worked out the plan to open Center Bridge for a two-hour window on race day, so runners could stay on route to complete our newly certified 13.1 mile course. In addition, the Manchester Police Department, along with the help of the Manchester Parks and Recreation, played an integral part in making this a most successful event. Thank you to all who came out to encourage the runners. We apologize to those who were inconvenienced by traffic delays, and thank you for your patience and cooperation. This was indeed a cooperative venture with the community. Len Kotler Manchester Lions Club

Apples CSO sends thanks to Lee Lodge Castleton Elementary School’s Community-School Organization is happy to get back to work. The CSO has begun the year a few steps closer to their goal of raising $15,000 for the repair and improvement of the school’s playground, Kids’ Castle. This is in part to the generosity of Castleton’s Lee Lodge. In June, Lee Lodge held a cash raffle on behalf of the playground fund and raised close to $1,000. We would like to extend a huge thank-you to all at Lee Lodge for thetime, generosity and support offered toward improving the playground available for all children in our community. The CSO remains an active part of Castleton Elementary School. It does so with the help of community volunteers, and organizes family fun activities, assists with school reading programs and strives to assist school staff when necessary. The CSO’s first monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. CES families and staff are encouraged to attend. Even volunteering the smallest bit of time will make a difference! Without the support of so many dedicated community members, the CSO would not be where it is today. Thank you to all who have made T he Castleton Elementary S c h o o l ’s C o m m u n i t y - S ch o o l Organization such a success. Gretchen Bischoff CSO Leadership Team Castletonpto@gmail.com

programs that correlate with lessons from their classrooms. Ramey said the event will be similar to last year. The cake wheel will return again this year, providing local residents with a sort of culinary roulette. There will also be a number of raffles and games organized by students in the Fair Haven School District. Besides the activities planned by the students, the event also features a variety of apple-inspired dishes and a bevy of different vendors. The Fair Haven Farmers’ Market will also be part of the festival offering patrons the opportunity to purchase a variety of fall produce. The Fair Haven Library will also hold its annual book sale at the library. Perhaps the most popular activity, and certainly the most delicious, is the Fair Haven Historical Society’s apple pie contest.
Back in 1957, if you stepped out the back door of Calvi’s dairy bar there was a basketball court. The hoop was on lawyer Andy Calvi’s garage that served as a storage place for his twosided tenement house that was right beside it. The renters were Red and Charlotte Morris and their gang of kids and Bill and Mary Bruten and their kids. We would step out that back door and we were in for yet another brand of hoop ball. We would choose up teams and include the little kids as well. Joe Morris, Mary Bruten’s son Ricky and Dickie Starling come to mind. With picks and screens we older guys would set up the little lads for shots and you’d hear, “Shoot, Ricky, shoot.” If someone opened the back door at Calvi’s you could tell by the songs playing who was in there. And right in the game. Tommy Edwards “Many a Tear Has to Fall, but it’s All in the Game,” one of the guys would

The contest is split into two divisions: one for professional cooks and the other for amateurs. Professionals are asked to have their pies at the booth by 10 a.m. and they will go on sale one hour later after the judges have had the opportunity to evaluate them.

All pies become property of the historical society after judging. The event will also feature a children’s category. Judging for this category will be completed by other children. Admission to AppleFest is free. The rain date is Sept. 22. For more information or for a vendor application, please call Ramey at 2653883, ext. 208.
say, “Hey, Judy and Carol are in there.” “OK kids, we’re gonna take a break, we’ll be right back,” Dickie Starling: “Oh yeah, that’s what you said yesterday and you were gone for an hour.” Big guy: “Practice, practice, practice.” The last time I saw Ricky was in the mid 1980s. He was in town and we had a good visit. He told me he was a car salesman at a large dealership in Saratoga. When I got word of his passing on, my mind flashed back to the days of innocence. Days of those backyard hoop games, sandlot baseball and hitchhiking to the lake for a swim. Back then if you had a couple of bucks in your pocket, you had it made. I don’t know if I’m ever going to see Ricky again, but I still have a picture of that goodlookin’ sandy-haired boy locked in my head. May God be with you, Ricky Plummer. —Twig Canfield

Vets: Parvovirus hitting area dogs The Granville Small Animal Hospital is reporting an outbreak of an extremely virulent strain of parvoviral enteritis or parvovirus in the Granville/Lakes Region area. Several cases have been hospitalized recently and the disease has proven very difficult to treat, requiring lengthy hospital stays and expense to pet owners. The virus can be present anywhere that has routine dog traffic and is easily spread by infected dogs or their owners. The disease is generally easy to prevent provided the dogs receive the recommended series of vaccinations as puppies and routine revaccination as adults dogs. Parvovirus causes severe vomiting and often bloody diarrhea that quickly dehydrates dogs and progresses to death when left untreated. Hospital staff are encouraging dog owners to make sure that their dogs are properly vaccinated.
Last Saturday at the hardware store everybody was asking who it was that they were having a funeral for up the street. The parking lot and all front street spaces were full as the

Clark fifth for Vermont Alicia Clark had her own personal cheering section at her first college cross-country meet Sunday, and she put on a show for the group. Clark, a nationally ranked runner while at Granville, placed fifth in her first collegiate race, the Vermont Invitational, covering the fivekilometer course in 18 minutes, 10.6 seconds. She was the second Vermont runner to finish and was 12 seconds behind senior captain Kirsten Weberg, who was third. The race was held in Williston, Vt. Weberg finished behind champion Waverly Neer (17:41.7) and Erin Gillingham (17:48.2) of Columbia. Fellow freshman Nikki Braceras earned the team’s third top 10 finish with a time of 18:33.9 to place ninth. Horde coach Lance Jordan took his team to watch Clark run.
“It was a good race to kick the season off for Alicia. St. Michael’s and Columbia were both in attendance. Columbia features a few of the top runners in the country and for Alicia to finish fifth as a freshman is exciting, but she knows that she has a lot of hard work ahead of her to be one of the elites in the nation.” “The women were very aggressive today and were able to generate some fast times on a challenging course,” said head coach Matt Belfield. The Catamounts are back in action next Friday (Sept. 14) as they head to Durham, N.H., for a preconference meet hosted by the University of New Hampshire. The meet is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. at College Woods, which is the site of the 2012 America East Cross Country Championships.

She said that about 66 people attended last year’s event. The show will feature Jim Marquis, a certified antique appraiser, and Ron Marcus of Freeman-Marcus Jewelry. “Jim Marquis is very entertaining and very humorous,” Williams said. “He’ll ask you questions about an item, and then tell you what he knows about it.” Guests are welcome to bring in jewelry, furniture, old tools, art, frames, china
and whatever other antique items they might have. “There’s always a ‘sleeper’ item every year whose value surprises everyone,” Williams said. The cost is $5 per item or three items for $10. The local version of the roadshow was supposed to be a one-time event, but “It was so popular, we decided to do it again,” said Williams. Refreshments include corn chowder, sandwiches and desserts, all of which are available for a small donation. All proceeds from the event go back into the community through various Lioness programs such as Thanksgiving food baskets and Christmas holiday donations. For more infor mation, please call Williams at 6420709.
