Easter Egg Hunt
Hoisington Field, Perkinsville VT April 16, 2022

The weather held and the hunt was on promptly at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Over 1500 eggs-stuffed with candy and prizes (stuffed by some very dedicated volunteers!), small tubs of Play Dough, jars of bubbles and lots of stickers were "hidden" in and around Hoisington Field.

As a bonus eight hand painted wooden eggs were hidden and if found could be exchanged for one of these HUGE Easter Baskets.

The eggs were scattered and waited for the children to scoop them up. There was a special area for children under 3.  All other age groups were separated by 30 seconds so everyone had a fair chance to fill their baskets. 

After most of the eggs were collected, Glenna put out the "backup" eggs and was followed around like a fish stocking truck.

The event was well attended and everyone went away lots of candy.

1879 Schoolhouse Gets a New Floor
Perkinsville, VT

Renovations continue on the 1879 Schoolhouse in Perkinsville. The committee formed to keep this historic building standing, and used, has been at it for over a decade. Funding for the work has been acquired through tax dollars, donations, fundraisers and numerous grants. And a lot of volunteers hours-spearheaded by volunteer recruiter/volunteer trainer Matt Keniston.

The floor of the north classroom in the 1879 schoolhouse in Perkinsville has a new look. Last week Mother Earth Hardwoods of Cornish, NH not only donated their time but materials too to give the floors a stunning new look but still in keeping with it's historic character.

The floors were sealed with Vermont Natural Coatings of Hardwick, VT sealer, also donated. (PolyWhey® sealer is made from whey protein, a byproduct of the cheese making process).

Once full occupancy clearance has been given by the State of Vermont, the room will be available for community use.  And with the Perkinsville Church out of commission-space is needed in the Perkinsville area for local meetings.

A little "Schoolhouse" history. The village of Perkinsville is located at the present crossroads of Quarry Road and Route 106 in the western part of the town of Weathersfield, Vermont. Situated on the Black River, Perkinsville was an ideal site for industry in its early years of development. Water powered its many lumber, flour, and wool mills.

In 1788, a committee divided the town of Weathersfield into 10 school districts. By 1830, this number rose to 13. Each district was considered a legal entity and oversaw its own operations. A prudential committee called meetings, hired teachers, secured firewood to heat the schoolhouse, and tended to the repair and upkeep of the facility. Prudential committees had their own clerks responsible for keeping school records.

Prudential committees also determined the number of weeks for each school term. Each school year included two terms, one summer term and a longer term for winter. A shorter summer term freed older children to work during the planting and harvesting months.

Around 1829, a three-person Superintending Committee of elected members approved persons for teaching positions and visited each of the district schools at least once per term. Separate prudential committees were retained for each district.

The 1st District School of Perkinsville was known as District 11 until 1808. Class was held in a one-room brick building, constructed in 1812. The school grounds included a wood shed and a necessary house (outhouse restroom). The building was heated by a fireplace or a wood-burning stove during the winter months. Town denizens supplied a half cord of wood for each child per household. Firewood supplied by voters served as school taxes.

In 1879, the Perkinsville school house was demolished. It was replaced by a second brick school in the same location as the original building. 

In 2008 when the school district voted to consolidate its kindergarten to eighth-grade students into one upgraded building in Ascutney.

Town Crew Gets an A+ "Grade"

If your road hasn't been graded yet, I'm sure it's on the Town Crew's schedule. 

They are making their way around town fixing our roads after this extremely challenging mud season.

We walk Little Canada most days and this mud season, it was really a disaster. 

After a few hours of crew work-it looks really good. Well done Ray and Crew.

Higher Ground, Burlington, VT April 14, 2022
Race Street Live, Holyoke, MA April 16, 2022

We are HUGE Todd Snider fans from way back and when he announced his New England dates for his "Pickin’…Grinnin’…Telling Stories…Takin’ Requests Tour" we knew we just had to get seats.

And we did...

People ask us "why do you go to multiple shows?" Well for some artists, every night is the SAME OLD Setlist but for others, like Todd, the setlist and requests he takes a completely different each night and therefore a completely different show experience every time you go.

Otis Gibbs opened these shows. I'd never heard of him before but he was quite good. A very thoughtful songwriter and very cool guitar picker.

Jake Shimabukuro
Lebanon Opera House, Lebanon NH April 15, 2022

Jake is on tour promoting his "Jake and Friends" album. Jake has teamed up with some pretty big names in the music industry.

Bette Midler (reprising her signature ‘The Rose’) to blues rocker Warren Haynes (who digs into a 13-minute take of Alvin Lee’s ‘On the Road to Freedom’), Yes frontman Jon Anderson (a stripped down look at The Beatles’ ‘A Day in the Life’) and Willie Nelson (a run through of Hoagy Carmichael’s ‘Stardust’).  Michael McDonald applies his trademarked gravelly voice to a sweet, scaled down version of the soul and Moody Blues hit ‘Go Now’.

Jimmy Buffett revisits ‘Come Monday’, one of his early singles, with just Shimabukuro’s ukulele and Mac MacAnally’s guitar. Vince Gill brings some six-string work while singing with wife Amy Grant on a sensitive ‘Something’ that’s sweet and tender.

Louisiana slide guitarist Sonny Landreth plays on the improvisational ‘Sonny Days Ahead’. Ziggy Marley shifts The Beatles’ ‘All You Need is Love’ to Jamaica for a version that would do his legendary dad proud.

Jake played many of these tunes and had the audience mesmerized with his talent.

Two Student Clubs are Up and Running
The Weathersfield School Alliance is a student run club with the mission to promote inclusion in our school and make our school community a place where everyone, regardless of his/her/their background, feel welcome. The club is overseen by staff advisors and is only open to 6-8th graders. So far, the club has met 5-6 times this year to discuss and develop this club mission and discuss fundraising opportunities for the club. The goal of raising funds is so the club might be able to sponsor guest speakers to come to the school and/or other special events for club members and the school community.

The Dungeons & Dragons Club is for students interested in playing tabletop role-playing games. We like the creative experience of collaboratively telling stories, building worlds, having moral and philosophical discussions, teaching new people to play RPGs, and of course, having a bunch of fun together. Come join us for D&D or one of the other games we try out from time to time! All are welcome in this club, and there is always room for another character in the game. Next year we plan on having more clubs as students present some of their interests and share what types of clubs they would like to have at school.

"Lace Up for Laura" 5K race Saturday, June 25 8:30 a.m.

The Lace Up for Laura Memorial 5k walk/run is a way to come together the last Saturday in June each year in remembrance of Laura Cody McNaughton who died in a tragic car accident on June 28, 2018.  It is intended to be a fun activity families can participate in together with runners and walkers of all ability. 

The event will consist of two races held on Saturday, June 25, 2022: an approximately 1/3 mile kids 12 and under fun run starting at 8:30 A.M. followed by a 3.1 mile (5km) race starting at 9:00 A.M for all ages and abilities. 

The starts for both races will be located near the intersection of Plains road and Reservoir road. 

The 3.1 mile race will be an out and back race on the scenic dirt road known for its lack of change in elevation. 

The kids race is at 8:30. The first 50 kids will receive custom wooden medallions, the adult winners and runners up in each age category will have custom medals again as well.

Proceeds from the Memorial run will benefit the Laura Cody McNaughton Memorial fund and its annual scholarship which will be awarded to a graduating senior who exemplifies Laura’s leadership and giving spirit, and, is pursuing further education and training in a field where these principles may be put into practice.
