Weathersfield Weekly Blog Sept. 27

This last week of September will be a very busy week for me. Five concerts to attend and photograph and the 26th Annual Vermont 50 Mountain Bike or Ultra-Run at Mount Ascutney on the weekend. This will be my 26th time volunteering at the race. The best part is the Kids FREE fun rides and runs on Saturday afternoon. Seeing these young ones run or pedaling as fast as their legs will go is always a great time. The weekend benefits Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, an organization that I've been involved with since 1987. Fingers crossed for great weather.
Assignments and Adventures I attended a Veterans Guitar Jam 2 at the Veterans Center on Prospect Street in White River Junction, Vermont. These guys are great.

On Saturday I covered The Brave Challenge for the Vermont Standard. It was like a Spartan Race for every body. The event was the brain-child of Cody TanCreti and Jeff Thomas and it was a blast.








On Sunday, The Ascutney Outdoors Center officially opened.…

News You Can Use Weathersfield select board and town news: At the Sept. 4 select board meeting the members approved increasing the Land Use Administrator to a full-time position.

There's a bit of fall in the air. I felt it on Sunday when I was at the 6th Annual Vermont Mac and Cheese Challenge in Windsor for the Vermont Standard. It was the perfect day to be sampling all sorts of Mac and Cheese. The Public House Lobster Mac was terrific and Singleton's "Everything But the Kitchen Sink" rocked. After getting my photos (and filling my belly with comfort food) I headed home to watch opening weekend of football. Politics aside, I still enjoy spending Sunday watching football from 10 a.m. (ESPN) until about 11 p.m. for 17 weeks. I don't really care which team is playing, I just like watching the on-field strategy. Oh, and I'm getting ready to volunteer for the Vermont 50 on Sunday, Sept. 30 at Ascutney Mountain. Always a great day-I'll be setting my DVR so I don't miss any football.

Hope you all had a great Labor Day. Ah, the unofficial end to summer. We knew it was going to happen but it seemed to come to quickly. I know we have a lot of summer weather left but the kids are back at school and the gardens are being harvested; I'm making sauce and pickles like crazy. We have a freezer full of blueberries and peaches to carry us through the long, cold, winter months. I've even seen a few turning leaves. So fall is on it's way people. We'll be raking leaves before you know it.
Assignments and Adventures Friday night we traveled toTaylor Farm in Londonderry Vt. The farm hosted the Terrible Mountain String Band on Friday night. Terrible Mountain String Band is Lila and Ida Mae Specker, Josh Norman, and special guest Will Mosheim.
