Craftsbury Solar Tracker Ribbon Cutting
Craftsbury Town Garage, Creek Rd, Craftsbury
Lisa Sammet, Secretary Craftsbury Energy Committee 147a Creek Rd Craftsbury, VT 05826 8002-586-7533 Press Release: Craftsbury The Town of Craftsbury is now producing electricity! The Craftsbury Energy Committee and town officials are holding a Ribbon Cutting Celebration on Thursday, Sept. 11 at 5:30 PM at the Town Garage on Creek Rd in Craftsbury. The Town’s solar tracker was installed in August and is producing one third of the town’s electricity. The data from the tracker will be available on the website of All Earth Renewables. At last March's Town Meeting the voters of Craftsbury approved using the Good Neighbor Funds to install a solar tracker for the town. The Good Neighbor Funds come from Green Mountain Power because of Craftsbury’s location within the view shed of their Lowell Mountain Wind project. Local and state officials have been invited. There will be a little music and a few words about the project plus food and beverages. Curious people are encouraged to come and ask questions about the system.
For more information call the Chair of the Craftsbury Energy Committee: Amelia Fritz at 586-2887.
Book to Film: Moshin Hamid's book: THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST
Jeudevine Memorial Library
The book unfolds as a monologue that Changez delivers to a mysterious American operative over dinner at a Lahore, Pakistan, cafe. Before 9/11, Princeton graduate Changez is on top of the world: recruited by an elite New York financial company, infatuated with Erica, a fellow Princeton graduate pining for her dead boyfriend. After the towers fall his co-workers become markedly less affable as his beard grows in ("a form of protest," he says), upset by his adopted country's "growing and self-righteous rage," slacks off at work and is fired. A thought-provoking book looking at 9/11 through other eyes.
Pick up a copy of the book at the library. Have some popcorn and cider and discussion after the film. For more info call 72-5948.
Woodchuck's Revenge play at The Music Box in Craftsbury
$10 general, $8 seniors and students
The Music Box, 147 Creek Rd, Craftsbury
Formed in front of the fire on a winter's night in 1990, Woodchucks' Revenge brings together as a performing group three friends who have combined their lifelong love of music to offer their audiences an eclectic and refreshing mix of traditional and contemporary folksongs played with spirit and an old time country sensibility. The quartet includes Peter Cady on guitar, and, infrequently, bass, Kristina Cady plays fiddle and bass, Sandy Morse on guitar, mandolin, and banjo; and Mike Lussen (after 27 years with Woods Tea Company) plays banjo, tenor and six-string guitar, bouzouki, ukulele, and bohdran. The Woodchucks' repertoire, which has been described as encyclopedic, ranges from New England fiddle tunes to modern cowboy songs, from Irish ballads to 60's folk, blues and bluegrass. Songs about Vermont, mountains, and life in New England are staple of the group's performances, along with a healthy dose of humor and a small but growing number of originals. The Woodchucks have performed throughout Vermont and the adjoining states and in Wyoming and Montana... at colleges and community events and festivals, in coffehouses and summer concert series, country fairs and bluegrass festivals as well as the New England Folk Festival (NEFFA), and the Northeast Music, Arts and Dance Festival (NOMAD). They have performed on Public Radio in Vermont and New York, as well as local access television. Their audiences have included students, seniors, visitors to Vermont, historical reenactors, and folk music fans of all ages.
