7:00: Program - Voices of Windham County
Vermonters have stories to tell--from home life to school life (one room type), from logs to mills, milk to butter, turkeys to deer, hilltop farms to valley villages, families to communities. There will be an opportunity on August 23rd to share memories, reflections, tales from the distant past where fresh peas were brought to your home, ice harvested on nearby lakes, and the whippoorwill song ended the day. The informal gathering will begin with several Windham County voices followed by those in the audience who wish to share their remembrances. Ray Ballantine from West Townshend and Jamaica, the Druke family from Williamsville, Linda Hellus from Brattleboro, Bea MacFarland from Wardsboro and Newfane, and Eli Prouty from Grafton will spin stories from their times in those towns. This will truly be an unforgettable program from you and for you. For more information, contact Nissa Petrak: 348-6301.
