Weathersfield Proctor Library Hosts Expansion Information Open House

Image
Monday February 3, 2014 at 6:30 pm The Trustees of the Weathersfield Proctor Library will be hosting an Open House. Weathersfield residents are encouraged to come and visit the Library with their questions about the proposed expansion and the $1.3 million bond vote (less grants and other funding resources) that will come before the town voters on March 4th, Town Meeting Day. The expansion will provide to the Town a library prepared for the changes facing the community, a resource for the future!

The Weathersfield Proctor Library is a small red brick building located on Route 5 in Ascutney, Vermont. Dedicated in 1903, it was the gift of Benjamin Franklin Blood in memory of his mother, Roxalana Proctor Blood.

The Proctor Library has 856 square feet of public space. The unfinished basement is used to store overflow books, to process incoming materials, to mend materials, to store books for the library book sale, to store supplies and store all programming materials and records. The base…

Celia Woodsmith Heads to the Grammy's!

Image
Celia Woodsmith grew up in Norwich Vermont, attended Hanover High School then moved on to the University of Vermont where she met a future band mate/collaborator Avi Salloway and began playing guitar.
Avi and Celia played around the country for a few years and I have my friend Dave to THANK for getting me hooked on these talented musicians.
Eventually the band morphed into Hey Mama, a blues-rock quartet that toured throughout the US and Canada performing over 500 gigs. The band also included Paul Chase on bass and Jared Seabrook on drums.

Hey Mama played their FINAL GIG January 21, 2011 at The Stone Church in Newmarket NH.

The band reunited for one final time at the Quechee Balloon Festival June 17, 2011


After this, Avi Salloway went on to form Billy Wylder
While Celia moved on to Della Mae. Now Celia is up for a Grammy!!
Della Mae’s label, Rounder Records, submitted their most recent album, This World Oft Can Be, for consideration in three Grammy categories back in the summer.Celia c…

Weathersfield Proctor Library NEEDS to Grow!

Image
On Tuesday March 4, 2014, the Voters of Weathersfield will be asked to approve a bond for the Weathersfield Proctor Library Expansion Project

I urge you to VOTE YES!!




In use since 1902, the Library's footprint has not changed as the town's population and library's use has grown. Many Library programs must be held at the Martin Memorial Hall (MMH), or elsewhere around town, because Library space too to limited to host the attendees.
Examples are:
Archer Mayor in 2009
Belly Dancing Class in 2010
Adam Boyce's Sprightly Steps in 2010
Joe Citro's talk "Spiritualism in Vermont" in 2011
Hungrytown and Vellamo at the Weathersfield Center Church 2012
A Summer Evening With Friends and Neighbors at the Weathersfield Center Church 2013
Tracey Medeiros, Vermont Farm Table Cookbook at MMH 2013
Saxton's River Bell Ringers, Ascutney House 2013
The programs that are held at the library are usually overcrowded. Night of 1000 Stars 2011

An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt
Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
Burlington VT, January 17, 2014

This show has been SOLD OUT for months and has been much anticipated by the crowd that was lucky enough to buy tickets before the sell out. As one 30-something person mentioned to his friend before the show started, we've gotta  be the youngest people here, I didn't think old people still went to concerts! Well, yes they do, especially concerts with this caliber of talent.

Lyle and John walked on stage a little after 8:00 pm after being introduced by Lyle's longtime friend and Large Band mate James Gilmer. Lyle asked John how his trip from Maine was and John replied that they pulled into Burlington at 5:30 am. John asked how his day was and Lyle said he enjoyed breakfast at the Pearl Street Diner. John said he's hoping to get some Nectar's fries after the show. This friendly banter is a s…
