HES Memorial Day Assembly #HartlandVT #VT


May 26, 2015
Hartland VT

Hartland Elementary School hosted a Memorial Day Assembly. The students invited veterans from American Legion Post 48 to join them. Post 48 Chaplain Mike Heaney said the post member chose to honor Leon Coolidge Royce, a 90 year old World War II Marine as this years honoree.
Royce, born in Hartland in 1924, attend Hartland Elementary School when it was located at the now, Hartland Recreation Center. He loved baseball and played short stop for Windsor High School. During WW II, he served in the Island Campaign spending time at the Marshall Islands, Guam and Iwo Jima. He returned to the area and was coach for Windsor High School Baseball taking the team to State Championships in 1960 and 1975. His students honored him with a signed bat that he brought to the ceremony.

The assembly included music by the HES Band, the 6th and 7th Grade Chorus and a solo of "God Bless America" by Samantha Gibbs. The event concluded with a speech by Rusty Sachs, a Marine Helicopter pilot living in Norwich who spoke to the students about what Memorial Day means to him.
The veterans and members of Pack 235 moved outside and conducted a ceremonial burning of old flags that had been collected from the cemeteries in town and also flags that the town's residents brought to be properly destroyed. Chaplain Heaney said a prayer, there was a gun salute and students from HES played "Taps."

Weathersfield New May 20 #WeathersfieldVT #VT


Weathersfield News May 20, 2015
Nancy Nutile-McMenemy

Everything is so green. I love this time of year. During our long winter months I miss seeing this special kind of green color that is only around in May. When you look up into the canopy of the trees you just have to smile. The color is so stunning and vibrant. Almost like our spirits are gray in the winter when we cannot see this color and our spirits giggle in the spring when this color returns. Not that this time of year is all fun and games, mind you; I've been diligently weeding. The strawberries have been weeded and mulched, the blueberries are weeded and mulched and the peach trees are weeded and mulched. The hubby has spread the cow manure and turned over the vegetable garden. Now I can water it heavily and cover it with black plastic-to bake out any weed seeds before the tomatoes, peepers, and basil get planted in a couple of weeks. We practice progressive pot planting here at our house and my tomato plants are begging for bigger pots. So that's on the agenda for today. I encourage you all to get outside and enjoy this beautiful spring weather and be sure to look up and take a mental picture of the bright green leaves. Hopefully, we'll all be able to recall this color next February.

Spent a lovely Sunday with my friend Sharon. We drove around Mascoma Lake making many stops along the way. Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day for a drive. Our first stop was Gemstar Gemstones in Enfield. If you love rocks, crystals or beads you have to visit this place!

We stopped for lunch at Mickey's Roadside Tavern and I had my first summertime meal of whole belly clams! YUMMY

Our next stop was to see a very interesting play at the Shaker Bridge Theater-what a cute place and the acting topnotch. Other Desert Cities was fantastic!

Sharon and I topped the day off with a stop at the Dairy Twirl in Lebanon. The line was long but they had three windows open so it moved quickly! First ice cream of the summer.
Monday, Jay and I drove to Albany NY to see Davy Knowles perform at this OLD SCHOOL club-The Low Beat.

Davy put on a scorching show-if you like blues guitar and smooth vocals-I highly recommend this singer from Isle of Man.

The Hikes-Saturday, June 20, 9:30 a.m. Cathedral Rocks This hike is partly on wood road and partly on a route that follows blazes through the woods. Its length has not been calculated, but it descends to Reservoir Road from Stokes Road, which is just short of Wellwood Orchard. The difficulty will be greater than a walk down the road. We will spot cars at the end of the hike for a ride back up to Stokes. There is a nice view near the top of the descent. The rocks are very big. Two hours?

Saturday, July 18, 9:30 a.m. The Ancient Hemlocks This route – notice I don’t say “trail” – is over fields and through the woods, up and down a logging road and over a rivulet or brook. You won’t have to remove footwear. The last half mile is up Little Canada Road, past the 1791 John Warner house. Dave Noake will welcome us there with a brief tour of the house and refreshments. The trees are about 500 years old. Your guide will use a compass to find his way through one section – he’s confident. Total distance 2 miles?

Saturday, August 1, 9:30 a.m. Tucker Trail Lookout From the green in Perkinsville we head up a road and a driveway and onto a wooded route that climbs to a fine southeastern view from the top of ledge. The difficulty is moderate to strenuous. The climb is steady, but the footing is good. The total distance is about 1.8 miles, up and back.

Sunday, August 9, 5 p.m. Ferry Road and the Connecticut River This generally level route heads down shaded Ferry Road and into Skyline Nursery. Soon it follows the river, sometimes with views. The total length is about 2 miles. Carol Orth is the leader.

Sunday, August 16, 11:30 a.m. To the Cabin We follow Swift’s Logging Road up to the crest of Pikes Peak ridge, then we follow a trail through the woods to Grace’s skiing trail, and then by woodsy trail on to Steve’s cabin. There is a nice view there. We will linger – some food will be available. The distance to the cabin will feel like 2 miles, plus a short walk on the Center Road. There might be No Trespassing signs at the beginning of this hike, but we natives are sure that they can’t mean us. We use the route many times.  

Saturday, August 29, 9:30 a.m. Perkinsville Lower Valley We will start at the Grange and take in the Lower Falls and the original site of Grout Cemetery. We will offer some historical commentary en route. There are river views and meadow views. The terrain is partly flat and partly of gentle slope. Distance will be optional, from 1.3 miles to 2.5 to 4.0. We’ll see what people want.

Saturday, September 19, 9:30 a.m. Little Ascutney We will walk up to the ledges – very nice view – on a trail, or not, and then might loop around to the basin and its cellar holes. In large part this terrain is strenuous. There is first a steady climb, then a dip, and then a steep ascent to get from the parking lot at 900 feet to the summit of Little Ascutney at 1709 feet. The hike probably will take over two hours. Steve Snyder is the hike leader, we hope.

Saturday, October 10, 9:30 a.m. Cooks Pond Loop This is a route on dirt road more than on trail. It is wooded, lovely in autumn colors. There are three beaver ponds along the trail and a framed view of Mt. Ascutney from the south end of Cooks Pond. Other mountain views occur at later points. Julia Lloyd Wright will be the hike leader.  Difficulty: easy, with one longish incline. Distance: almost 3 miles.

Weathersfield News May 13, 2015
Nancy Nutile-McMenemy

So, how did you like spring? I swear one day it was 38 degrees the next it was 80. We visited Connecticut two weekends ago and their trees had leafed-out, all their wildflowers were up. Their tulips were full open and fading. And their humming birds were back. I thought we were weeks behind them. Nope. Our hummingbirds returned on May 4, we're almost completely leafed-out and the daffodils and tulips are up and open. 



We started picking asparagus mid week and our lettuce was just kicking in-now I'm worried it might be too hot for it. We've been 80 degrees with the humidity hovering around 35% ; hand watering twice a day to keep things wet. Last Saturday, it turned full summer-85 degrees with 66% humidity. YIKES. The black fly are out and biting and I've been harvesting ticks off the dog like crazy. I'm not complaining because, hey-it's not snowing and it's not -20 so that's a good thing. Am I asking too much if we could have a month of 60 degree weather in late April early May then move into summer weather (after our blood thins out a bit?) I think not. Bug spray-check, sunscreen-check, tank top, shorts, flip flops-check, check, check-I'm off into my garden seeing the calendar say May but thinking July.

Another crazy week for me. Two corporate portrait shoots on Thursday and Friday. Then Friday night I was off to Woodstock to cover the Yoh Theater performance of "Marisol."


Up early on Saturday, I stopped by the Ascutney Volunteer Fire Associations Annual Plant Sale to pick up a few flats of annuals. I made my way up the interstate to Hartland for a morning of fun and families at the Hartland Rec Center.

The Rec. Center hosted its Annual Truck Extravaganza.

Pack 235 held their Rocket Launch.



And The Hartland Cooperative Nursery School hosted its Annual Spring into Summer Fun Run.

I closed out Saturday with a benefit concert at the Norman Williams Public Library by James Lee Stanley for the Vermont Volunteer Services for Animals Humane Society.



And a Post Cinco de Mayo Party in Hanover NH, images: http://photosbynanci.smugmug.com/Silverman-Parties/May-2015/

Monday I traveled back to Hanover to see an amazing, young, blues guitarist, Davy Knowles perform at Pierce's Inn in a solo acoustic show.



I was so impressed with this young man that I HAD to see him with his band in Burlington Tuesday evening at the Higher Ground Lounge.


He was truly amazing and if you don't believe me check out the videos I took of him!




News You Can Use
Select Board-Perkinsville School Update. Local engineer, Todd Hindinger, is assisting with the design of the drainage system needed to keep water from entering the school basement. The source of the water is not a high water table as had been previously assumed, but rather water from the roof run off. Work on the drainage system has begun and mold remediation began Monday May 11. A public building permit has been applied for from the State Dept. of Labor and Industry. Maximum occupancy of the building will be 49.

Veteran's Committee-Chip Cobb outlined the Committee’s goals for 2015 to the Select Board. He asked the public to assist in getting names of Weathersfield veterans to the Committee for inclusion on the Roll of Honor. He and the Board discussed ways of getting water to the Veterans Park for watering the flower garden there. The Board said they would assist in helping solve the problem.

Memorial Day Preparation-Chip Cobb has been working on this year's program, which will include the Catamount Composite Squadron and Deborah Kell. The Memorial Garden needs volunteers to spruce it up so the garden will look its best for Memorial Day.
