Saving family treasures

How do you rescue waterlogged photos, documents, paintings, VHS tapes, CDs, and books? Learn how in this workshop held by the VT Department of Libraries and the Smithsonian in Ludlow. Hint: Stand books on edge, pages fanned out, or put them in the freezer to stabilize them and buy time. Putting wax paper or paper towel between pages helps, too. Courtesy Okemo Valley TV.

Flood recovery updates

Join Governor Scott for his July 27 press conference for details on the ongoing response to Vermont's historic catastrophic flooding in which he addresses how an initial $20 million will be disbursed to support residents and businesses recovering from damage and trying to get back to work.

He salutes and congratulates Vermont's first female Brigadier General Tracy Poirier.

Uncovering hidden history

In the 1993 restoration, the six wings of the Maxfield Parrish stage set in Plainfield, NH had archival coroplast backing boards attached to the backs. Due to the lack of environmental controls and being unused during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the boards warped and mold developed, a threat to the historic art. Restoration to save the wings now underway at Plainfield, NH's Town Hall has revealed hidden local history.

Take a Bite out of Hunger

The Summer Lunch Program, an essential part of the Hartford Community Coalition’s Take A Bite Out of Hunger initiative, provides free breakfasts and lunches Monday-Friday during the summer months for children and their families throughout the Upper Valley. This effort is possible with hundreds of volunteer hours and numerous collaborations with our local libraries, schools, community groups, Hartford Parks & Rec, the White River Rotary, and employees at local businesses.

In a society increasingly divided and isolated, storytelling can bring us together. Story Jam is a bi-monthly story circle where Upper Valley community members can meet to get to know each other through personal stories. Whether you are a new or seasoned storyteller; whether you are shy or extroverted – all are welcome! 

Organized by Judith Hertog and Michelle Rogge
