Shelburne fire department on the hunt for more volunteers

The Shelburne volunteer fire department hosted an open house on Saturday for Operation Mayday, the first statewide initiative aimed at bringing new firefighters into the Vermont fire service.

Although the department has no full-time employees, the town has successfully relied on its

professional volunteers for more than a century, but interest in the volunteer service has slowly decreased with the department seeing a smaller influx of new recruitments in recent years.

Chief Andrew Dickerson, who has been with the department about 14 years, said that although the department isn’t in dire need of volunteers like some local departments, what they are experiencing

is steady turnover rates, leaving the department with significant skill gaps between members.

“We have folks that have a lot of experience and are good, competent leaders, and we have a lot of folks that are still very green and new to the job and have a lot to learn,” Dickerson said. “They’re

Shelburne Museum plans new building for Indigenous art

The Shelburne Museum is in the works of launching a new 9,750-square-foot building set to feature Indigenous Art from more than 80 bands across America — an initiative Chief Don Stevens of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk-Abenaki Nation has called a “tremendous partnership.”

The $12.6 million new Perry Art Center for Native American Art has been nearly four years in the making said director Tom Denenberg and has been a major lesson in cultural competency amidst a time when many museums are reconsidering what it means to advance and uplift the voices of those within their collections.

The building was named for Vermont resident Anthony Perry’s expansive Indigenous art collection which was donated to the museum by his wife, Teri Perry. However, becoming stewards of the collection would take years of planning and learning led by Indigenous voices in Vermont and the nation at large.

“At the time, I suggested to her that we were going to have to do a lot of due diligence work on cultural competency that the museum wasn’t familiar with looking after Native American material,” said Denenberg.

He, along with other board members and staff of the museum, called upon a national advisory committee made up of enrolled members of Native American Tribes, scholars, curators and culture bearers to guide the project from start to finish.

“I said yes because this is our homeland,” said Stevens. “We need to be front and center and welcome people as they come to

Newspapers win press awards

sculptor David Stromeyer.

The Vermont Community Newspaper Group took home several top journalism and advertising design awards — including the top prize for the Stowe Guide & Magazine — at an annual New England newspaper contest.

The Better Newspaper Competition, hosted by the New England Newspaper and Press Association, was held in Waltham, Mass., on Saturday, as part of the weeklong New England Newspaper Convention.

Newspaper group publisher and editor Greg Popa won first place for the Stowe Guide & Magazine in the competition’s Best Niche Publication category. The Guide had previously placed first in the same category from 2010-2022, with one third place showing.

“We are fortunate to have such a talented group of writers and photographers who provide content for our magazine — many of whom also write and shoot pictures for our newspapers,” Popa said. “These continued first-place awards are really a testament to their skill and talent. I’m proud of them all and feel fortunate to work alongside them.”

Journalism awards

Among the competition’s first place journalism awards, the judges recognized two different reports of a devastating fire that destroyed the Percy family’s iconic Stowe dairy barn in early 2022. Aaron Calvin won first place in the General News Story category for his Stowe Reporter story “130 cows, historic barn lost in Percy farm fire.”

Rob Kiener placed first in the Human Interest Feature Story category for “A town responds,” which covered the aftermath of the Percy

Also winning a top spot was Tommy Gardner – first place in Crime and Courts Reporting for his News & Citizen series about an Elmore man who killed his wife and himself.

The newspapers also won numerous second- and third-place reporting awards:

• Gardner tied — with himself — for second place in the Business/ Economic Reporting category. The stories were “Dairy dazed: Farmers look past Horizon,” a series about dairy farmers left in the lurch by a national organic dairy conglomerate; and “Liquor merchants educate customers on Russian vodka ban,” a story about how Vermont stores pulled the product from their shelves in the early days of the war with Ukraine.

• Gardner placed second in the Sports Story category with “Raiders repeat as tennis champs,” about the Stowe High School girls’ tennis team beating South Burlington two years in a row.”

• A Stowe Reporter series about the traffic jams last winter along Mountain Road garnered Gardner a silver in the Transportation Reporting category.

• Gardner finished second to Kiener in the same Human Interest Feature Story category with “A Buffalo Man,” a Guide story about a New York guy who dressed in a dirndl and traveled to Trapp Family Lodge for Oktoberfest.

• Avalon Styles-Ashley, a former reporter for The Other Paper, won second place in the category Racial, Ethnic or Gender Issue Coverage for her reporting in the OP on a former South Burlington High School teacher under investigation for racial harassment.

• Kiener placed second in Arts & Entertaining Reporting for his Guide piece, “Man of Steel,” about

• Styles-Ashley and Calvin shared a third-place award in the Health Reporting category for “Staffing shortage creates disparity in nursing pay,” an in-depth look at hospitals’ reliance on traveling nurses that ran in all Vermont Community Newspaper Group publications.

• Calvin won third place in the Obituaries category for his Stowe Reporter piece “Marvin Moriarty remembered: Olympic skier, bar brawler, fashion influencer,” the title of which really tells it all.

• Calvin placed third in Government Reporting for his News & Citizen coverage of the drama behind the scenes at Cambridge’s Varnum Memorial Library.

• Calvin’s series of News & Citizen stories about the village of Johnson refusing to divulge information about upheaval in the water and light department resulted in a third-place finish in the Right-toKnow category. The newspaper also won a victory by prevailing in a public records lawsuit against the village.

The Stowe Reporter, News & Citizen and Stowe Guide & Magazine also collected a passel of second- and third-place photography awards.

Photographer Gordon Miller collected the most awards, earning awards for Spot News (the Percy barn fire); General News (kids on a slip-and-slide); Feature Photo (an angler fly fishing in the mist); and two different Portrait Photo entries (a primitive biathlete competitor and a self-portrait of artist Jamie Rauchman).

• Paul Rogers got second place in the Photo Story category for “Man of Steel.”

Green Up Day at Wake Robin

Shelburne police warn of neighborhood bear

Shelburne Police say they have received multiple reports of a young black bear in Hullcrest Road and Hedgerow Drive neighborhood.

Police are reminding residents when wild animals become used to easily accessible food sources and humans, they become more dependent on human foods and less wary. The most common sources of food that attract black bears are pet food, birdfeeders,

barbecue grills and household trash.

Police say these measures can protect property from bears:

• Never feed bears, deliberately or accidentally

• Feed your pets indoors

• Feed birds from December to March only

• Store trash in a secure place. Trash cans alone are not enough. Black bears are wild animals that should be treated with respect

and appreciated from a distance. For your safety, keep yourselves and pets away from bears and other wild animals, police say.

In general, if you encounter a black bear, police say to remain calm and ensure the bear has an escape route. Do not approach or try to feed the bear.

If possible, back away or go inside. Do not run from a black bear and do not climb trees to escape a bear.

Shelburne plans new, accessible garden beds

Shelburne will have a second community garden this summer, a pilot project of accessible garden beds designed for those have challenges with ground-level gardening.

The new garden will be in Davis Park, across from the Shelburne Community School, between the playground and the barn. During the first year, the garden will be limited to eight gardeners, but there is room to expand next year if demand is high.

The 30-inch and 24-inch-high raised beds make it possible to garden while standing or sitting in a wheelchair. They are a gift from the Shelburne Craft School, thanks to director Heather Moore and the grant that supports their work.

Manny Hutter and students enrolled in his craft school wood-

working class will build them onsite.

Michelle Gates, director of The Vermont Garden Network, a statewide association of school and community gardens, has provided organizational and practical support since the early stages of the project. As part of programming this summer, Vermont Garden Network staff will offer several gardening workshops open to the public.

The accessible gardens are part of the already extensive programs available for Shelburne residents through the town’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Betsy Cieplicki, head of the rec department, helped find the right location, provided water access, crushed stone for the paths and supported the fundraising effort to

pay for soil and other materials.

The central garden bed will be a demonstration area to show tips and practical advice for gardeners of all abilities. Some produce will go to the Shelburne Food Shelf. Most beds are planted by participating gardeners to grow food for themselves and their families.

Get in touch with Kit Anderson at if you or someone you know may enjoy access to one of the raised beds. Although there will be a small charge for each plot, scholarships are available. Volunteers are also welcome.

A local steering committee of gardeners worked with the Shelburne Craft School, Vermont Garden Network and Shelburne Parks and Recreation to create the new garden.

great, they’re enthusiastic, they’re go-getters, and they love what they’re doing, but it just takes so long to get them that exposure training and the experience. If you’re not constantly bringing people in, you can get into a situation where you have a big skills gap, that’s the situation we’re in

right now.”

The department, which averages 300 calls annually, currently has 32 volunteers — including four college students — that average anywhere from four hours to 20 hours a week of service time.

Dickerson explained that 14 years ago, the department easily saw 45

volunteers at a given time.

“Last year we tracked 6,400 hours of time put in. On top of that, there’s also when folks do driver training, we don’t track that time. If you’re here doing maintenance or working with a mentor, we don’t track that time either, because we just don’t have the

capability to track every hour. So I would guess that it’s probably closer to about 8,000 hours that were actually put in by all these folks.”

The event mostly saw an overflow of kids from the Little League game happening in the field next to the station, but didn’t garner as much interest from potential volunteers. The team handed out roughly four applications during the entire three-hour event — a situation Dickerson says is mostly due to the ever-changing lifestyles of the world we live in.

“Forty years ago, a lot of people worked in the town that they lived in. Today, a lot of people commute an hour or two to get to work,” Dickerson said. “So if you’re commuting for two to four hours a day, do you then have time to put in an eight-hour work day, commute and then also volunteer to do this? There’s also a lot more activities that families do these days.”

Once accepted by the department’s membership committee, the first stop for a new recruit is a basics course which is, on average, a month and a half of training.

“It’s a combination of classroom and practical,” member Ted Fisher said. “We have a textbook, we do training days, you learn about hose line handling, building construction, buyer behavior, ropes and knots, tools, ladders, all the very basic stuff.”

New firefighters join the team on a probationary period that often lasts up to six months while working closely with a mentor and other longer-reining volunteers.

“Ted (Fisher) was one of my probationary firefighters,” firefighter Garrett Levin said. “We will work together, we’ll go over the checklist. A lot of stuff can be done one on one ... and then, of course, there are certain training and education components that are better served as a group.”

Dickerson explained that

Shelburne is one of the few local departments that don’t have any paid full-time staff, allowing for a stronger volunteer base, for which most neighboring departments are pining.

“I would like to see, where all my volunteers, the only thing they have to do is show up and train and go on incidents,” Dickerson said. “They don’t have to worry about planning, recruitment drives, rewriting bylaws and policies or doing maintenance on the trucks.”

During this year’s budget season, the department requested funds to pay a full-time fire chief, which was ultimately nixed by the selectboard due to other budget constraints.

“We’re running a business of 32 ‘employees,’ that operates off of a half-million-dollar budget. So, there’s a lot to keep track of.”

For now, department leadership wants to continue on a volunteer basis mostly because other departments see their volunteer levels drop drastically once paid staff comes on board, not to mention the cost to the town.

“If we were three or four people to a shift, you’d be looking at a $2.6 million budget. Right now, we still feel like we’re doing this town justice (on a volunteer basis),” he said. “It’s really challenging what we do. But we’re doing well enough with it and we feel like we owe it to this community to stretch it out as long as we can.”

The team is not limited to putting out fires. The department responds to carbon monoxide alarms, motor vehicle accidents, hazardous material incidents, emergencies on the lake with five active apparatus designed for a broad range of needs, along with two boats.

“This is definitely my family,” said Levin. “These are my closest friends outside of my friends that live in other states. Without a doubt.”

Cold frames stretch garden season

Utilizing cold frames in early spring is a great way to jump start the vegetable growing season.

Cold frames are wood boxes with slanted, transparent glass or plastic tops that are placed directly on top of the soil in your garden. These boxes allow the sun to filter in, warming the air in the box. This creates a greenhouse-like environment with moist air and warm soil that encourages plant growth.

As the days get warmer, there is a risk that the cold frames could get too hot and damage your

plants. To prevent this, the lid can be propped open to help moderate the air temperature. You can keep a thermometer in the box to track the temperature.

If you are germinating seeds — especially warm season crops like tomatoes, peppers and zucchini — try to keep the air temperature between 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. Cool season crops like lettuce, spinach and peas prefer air temperatures to be lower, about 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Fresh, leafy vegetables like leaf lettuce, spinach, kale, arugula and Swiss chard can be easily grown in cold frames. Seeds can be planted

directly into the ground, or in trays set on the soil surface. If your goal is to grow full heads of lettuce or kale in your cold frame, you may not have as much room as you would if you started seedlings.

For seed and plant spacing, check the seed packets or websites. I like planting lettuce seeds densely in rows so that I can eat what I thin out. This also can be done for other leafy greens such as spinach and kale. While it takes patience to thin out and wash the tiny plants, young greens are a delicacy.

Radishes and scallions also are great vegetables to start in cold frames. Simply follow the spacing instructions in the seed packets or plant them in trays. Thinning the plants over time can provide snacks for you. Radishes may not appreciate being transplanted, so consider this if you plan to grow them in containers.

Just like in summer, make sure to water the plants when the soil is dry. You can test this by checking whether the soil is moist at a depth of a quarter inch under the surface.

If it is moist, you won’t need to water. If it is dry, it is time to water.

While seed packets may say that leaf lettuce or greens take 50 days or more to mature, if you are happy eating smaller plants, you will have greens to eat much sooner. The same goes for scallions. Radishes will be ready to harvest in as soon as three weeks.

Cold frames can be made from scraps that you may have laying around, including pieces of lumber, old windows (make sure the glass

and finishes are lead-free) or a roll of see-through plastic. Check out this resource for tips on how to build your own cold frame: bit. ly/3LCqEf0.

If you’re excited about getting your garden started this year, give cold frames a try, and soon you’ll be eating fresh vegetables out of your garden.

Sign project educates public on state’s native lake trout

A sign project featuring wild native lake trout at state fishing access areas got underway this month following a joint effort by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department and the Native Fish Coalition.

“Lake trout have thrived in Vermont’s cold, clean lakes for thousands of years,” said Eric Palmer, fish and wildlife’s director of fisheries. “This sign project reminds the public about important habitat features that will continue the legacy of lake trout.”

Native lake trout live in Vermont’s deepest and cleanest lakes. Only a handful of Vermont

waterbodies retain wild populations of the species. Lakes featured in the sign project include Caspian, Crystal, Echo, Maidstone, Seymour and Willoughby.

Lake trout thrive in deep, cold, highly oxygenated lakes. They are native in northern latitudes and often survive for decades. They forage for baitfish and spawn on rocky lake shoals and shorelines in autumn. Though lake trout are often raised in hatcheries and stocked for recreational fishing, the lakes designated in this education project retain wild, naturally reproducing populations of the species.

The Northern Vermont High School Sailing Team sent four teams of two sailors to Sail Maine in Portland on

14 to compete against 14 Maine high school teams. Brendan Hawko and Nathan Hansen from Shelburne won three of 11 races in very challenging conditions. They finished in 2nd place overall. Established in 1997, the Community Sailing Center hosts the only high school sailing team in Vermont. All students from area high schools (public or private) and home schools who have sailing experience and are in good standing at their school are welcome as team members. The team practices three to five days a week after school, with weekend regattas both at home and away.

our homeland. So, I’ve been partnering with them for going on two or three years when it comes to this project.”

While working separately on land acknowledgment for the museum, Stevens also played a role in guiding the hiring process of the Shelburne Museum’s new associate curator of Native American Art, Victoria Sunnergren, an integral part of the curation of the new art center.

“We were able to get some funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Henry Luce Foundation,” explained Denenberg. “We’ve run a series of internal sessions where we have culture bearers and curators, enrolled members of tribes, advising us, partnering with us on how we understand the interpretation and care of material.”

As conversations progressed, it was clear that a collection of this magnitude would require its own specific building and space.

“This is a building that’s designed for the care and interpretation of Indigenous material,” said Denenberg.

“It’s a living building, not a stagnant building so people can interact with the actual objects from the tribes, creating areas for workshops and lectures. It’s going to be a living, interactive building,” said Stevens.

The building’s designers, Adjaye Designs, is currently one of the largest firms in the world with a history as a global, multicultural team.

“Our team is inspired by the potential of the Perry Center to not only enhance Shelburne Museum as a destination for education but also to amplify and empower the Indigenous communities represented by the collection and to reconceptualize the role of a museum facility in the 21st century,” Adjaye Associates Founder, David Adjaye said. “As the design architect for the new Perry Center, we intend to cultivate opportunities for transformation, storytelling and cross-cultural dialogue, ensuring the Perry Center contributes to the unique eclecticism and mission of Shelburne Museum.”

The firm’s best-known commission to date is the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in 2016 on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

“(The Perry Center) is quite small compared to the other things they do,” said Denenberg. “But we found them to be the most articulate about how you design a building for a complicated history, and that’s something that they’ve done, both at the Smithsonian but also in Australia where they did an Aboriginal project.”

Adjaye Associates is also part-

nering with an Indigenous-owned architecture firm, Two Row Architect, who have held a series of formal listening circles with the Abenaki surrounding the construction of the building.

Stevens said that he is unaware of any other museum in Vermont holding a collection of Native American art at as large of a scale as what is planned for the Perry Center. In New England, he likened the project to the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in New Hampshire, along with the Abbe Museum in Maine which has made “decolonization” of the museum a major component in their strategic plan.

MUSEUM continued from page 1 See

“As applied to the relationship of institutions such as museums to the Native people of the United States, ‘decolonization’ means, at a minimum, sharing authority for the documentation and interpretation of Native culture,” reads its website. “It’s not an easy definition to create as it’s a process determined by the local tribal commu-

nities and the history and practice of the decolonizing museum. When done properly, each organization will reflect decolonization in different ways.”

For the Shelburne Museum, Denenberg explained that the only way to work with Indigenous material is by first forming partnerships with the tribes where the material comes, and Stevens said there really has been no level of skep-

ticism when working toward the Perry Center.

“I’ve been involved from the beginning it’s been a partnership,” he said. “They have asked me to consult with them and we have other tribes involved. It’s been a relationship and a partnership and not something they’re just doing on their own.”

This Native American art initiative has deep roots in the Shel-

burne Museum with the very first diagram for the museum from 1947 featuring a Native American art gallery. Denenberg explained that the founder, Electra Havemeyer Webb, had a deep interest in, and engagement with, Indigenous art and culture, an aspect of Shelburne Museum’s program that was never realized in her lifetime but has become of singular importance to the institution today.

shelburne news

“In the 1960s, there was a small gallery after she died that was considered the Native American gallery until the 90s when the material was removed because it was culturally insensitive by that point,” he said.

“The board and the staff felt if we were to seriously engage in those cultures, we would have to do it in a meaningful and robust way. That was what led us to this notion

that we needed to build a building,” he continued.

The project is breaking ground this fall with the hope of having the building completed by spring of 2026. On display this summer, the “Built from the Earth” exhibition will feature highlights of historic Pueblo pottery from the Perry Collection of Native American Art and introduce viewers to the artists and cultures who craft these works

of art with materials rooted in the land of the American Southwest.

Experienced Caregiver



“I have been told that one of the main reasons is not only to house or be stewards of the objects but also where each tribe can interact with the objects that come from their homeland,” said Stevens. “That way, it’s not something they’re looking at behind the glass, but it’s something that they can interact with because it has a living spirit.”
