Bowl for kids sake The Bank of Bennington is the proud new title sponsor of Bowl For Kids’ Sake. The event, which will be held on April 2, is the primary community fundraising source for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bennington County. “We’re very pleased to sponsor this event for Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Bank of Bennington President Jim Brown. “It’s important to help children through mentoring and many staff at the Bank of Bennington feel strongly about
supporting the program.” Some of the “Littles” in the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program recently took a trip to The Bank of Bennington to say “Thanks!” to the bank for its tremendous support. They also made an oversized, colorful thank you card presented it to the bank. Hundreds of bowlers come to the Bowl For Kids’ Sake. Last year the bowlers and generous community businesses raised over $50,000 to provide mentoring help children across

Bennington County. Big Brothers Big Sisters currently serves about 60 children in the community, matching them with a caring adult. The connection between a mentor and a Little is the single biggest predictor of success for children when they grow up. In Bennington County, children who are mentored have greater self esteem, better academic achievement and attendance, and less likelihood of dropping out or turning to substance abuse.
Well-known Ver mont Comedian ‘The Logger,’ will perform at the Arlington Memorial High School Gymnasium, Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26. Show time for both nights is 7 p.m. All tickets are $20, and proceeds will benefit the Mack Attack AAU Girls Basketball Team with players from Bennington, Londonderry, Arlington and Manchester. The team is fundraising for a trip to compete in a Mother’s Day tournament. Tickets can be purchased at the Arlington Memorial High School store or Fisher Elementary Main Office. Known as Rusty DeWees, when not on stage, the comedian has a following throughout the state. As a result, organizers are encouraging those who are interested to get their tickets early to be sure they have a seat. “This is actually the first time we’ve used The Logger as a fundraiser,” AAU parent Deanne Lacoste said. Lacoste said the show will have only 400 tickets each night. “People have said they sell out pretty quickly so it’s best to get them in advance,” she said. Tickets are available at the door only if the show has not sold out. Months ago, before a long snowy winter, Lacoste said
team parents were looking for something a little different from the ordinary fundraiser event. “It was a parent’s idea to get something different into to the area to get some comedy and fun for all, especially with all of the nice weather we’ve been having,” Lacoste said she has been advised by DeWees that the show is appropriate for all ages. This will be the Logger’s first appearance in Arlington, she said. “I’m looking forward to something different for the community; there area a lot of dinner and other fundraisers but it’s nice to bring sort of a different thing here,” Lacoste said. “This is also an opportunity to see a show and support the Mack Attack so they can attend An eclectic and innovative act, The Logger one-man comedy show is best described as “Blue Collar Comedy” meets “Prairie Home Companion.” The show has been steadily selling out theatres, large and small, throughout New England ever since it hit the stage in 1998. The success of the live act has spawned three Logger DVDs, two CDs, five calendars, Logger apparel (duct tape wallets included), and Scrawlins, a compilation of Rusty's columns

Discussion on bookstore future Friday Chris Morrow will host an open discussion about the book business and the future of the Northshire Bookstore on Friday, March 25 at 7 pm During an open discussion, Morrow will examine the book business and the future of the Northshire Bookstore. The book industry is currently undergoing a massive change with the transition to digital reading. Borders, one of the nation's largest booksellers, recently filed for bankruptcy, closing hundreds of stores. The fact is there will be much less retail space devoted to books in the coming years. This does not mean, however, that the physical book (some people have taken to calling it the pbook instead of the ebook) will disappear or that all bookstores will disappear. Morrow will discuss these subjects and how the book world has changed and what the store can do to evolve and thirve in a new world. In order to adapt to the changing realities of the book industry, The Northshire Bookstore needs to understand what its customers want in a bookstore in 2011 and beyond. They, of course, have their ideas, but the success of this business has always been predicated on listening to it’s customers which is why everyone is invited to attend this discussion. Wine and cheese will be served during the event. For more information on this and other events, call 802-3622200 or 1-800-437-3700, or visit the Northshire Bookstore website at www.northshire.com.
