As Memorial Day approaches I hope we all remember why we have a day off. While most people get ready for the first weekend of summer with BBQs,  garden planting,  and a freedom from work day, some folks gather to remember all the service people who fought bravely for our country during many wars. During your long weekend, stop for a few minutes and reflect on the real reason why we have this day set aside and what the real price of freedom is.


Last Wednesday, I was in the audience of "Good News From Around The World" a play written and performed by the folks at Zack's Place in Woodstock.

Woodstock, VT

Town Hall Theater in Woodstock VT was close to capacity on Wednesday evening May 18 for the World Premiere of "Good News from Around the World," a musical comedy review written by Dail Frates and all the folks at Zack's Place. The one act play starred 45 community members and ran a little over one hour.




After searching for some "Good News" , Bob Hager, a retired NBC news reporters turns to the Good News Station at Zack's Place for some very inspirational stories of good will and perseverance.

Get out your calendars, there's a lot happening in Town over the next few weeks. You won't want to miss the Grand Opening of the ADA Accessible bathroom at the Weathersfield Proctor Library on Thursday May 26 at 5 p.m.. Rumors have it that there'll be some special cupcakes at the refreshment table.

Another week filled with music and events. Wednesday, May 11, I had tickets to see Cage The Elephant at the Times Union Arena in Albany but the show got moved to the Palace Theatre. My great seats were turned into General Admission Balcony-REFUND PLEASE. Heard it was a great show, oh well, hopefully I'll catch them sometime. 
Instead, I went to Concord NH to see an old friend perform a FREE show at the Concord City Auditorium. I've known Scott Kirby for years and really love his music. It's a laid back, small town, chill type of sound. More images from Scott's show: https://photosbynanci…

Hartland VT

Before a crowd of about thirty, mostly family and friends, Conor Kennedy announced that he's running for the Windsor County Senate seat that his boss is retiring from. Vermont Senate Pro Tempore, John Campbell announced his retirement from the Senate after serving Windsor County for 16 years.

Campbell introduced his Deputy Chief of staff, Kennedy Monday night, praising Kennedy by saying "The people of Vermont are so much better off by having someone like Conor as their representative in Montpelier and this is just the beginning folks."


Kennedy spoke about 15 minutes laying out why he wants to continue his public service career. "In order to make our county (Windsor) a better place for people to raise their families, grow their businesses, and enjoy Vermont's great quality of life, it will take hard work and the entire community to make these changes possible...we have to do this together."

Kennedy grew up on a far…

Quechee Club
Quechee VT

On Saturday evening, the Quechee Club was transformed into a Casino for the Woodstock Union High School's Junior Prom.

Junior Class President Alden Krawcyzk and his friends spent a good part of the day decorating the event room.


The students started arriving around 8 p.m.. Virginia Dean and Gareth De Bourguignon, Junior Class Advisors checked the list to OK the prom attendees.


The prom goers had about two hours to socialize, play a few hands of cards, get their photos taken and pose in the Fun Photo Booth before lining up for the Red Carpet Promenade.
Parents arrived with cameras in hand as the Promenade began. The students were dressed to the nines!



The King and Queen were crowned.



And another right of passage was complete. Some of the students left immediately after the court dance for privately held after parties, others stayed and danced to the DJ.
