VNLA members and associates build a 15,000 square foot themed landscaped display (equal to about an acre). A committee works on the design and we receive hundreds of donations of plants, time, materials and labor. A group of volunteers then comes together for 3.5 days to build this display – quite a feat if you watch our time-lapse video below from the 2019 show. 

Along with the grand garden landscaped display, the show offers a wide variety of features and activities to choose from (see highlights below).
  • Grand Garden Display (over 15,000 s. ft.) filled with flowering bulbs, shrubs, trees, and water features!
  • Local artists will be painting live in the Grand Garden Display.
  • Over 100 vendors related to the horticultural/gardening participate in the Flower Show Marketplace

Laura Cody McNaughton Memorial Fund Scholarship Award 2022 

The Laura Cody McNaughton Memorial Fund is proud to award this year’s $8,000 Public Health and Community Service Scholarship to Stephanie Ager of Bellows Falls, now studying at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn.

Throughout her high school career Stephanie has been actively involved in academics, sports, and community service. She graduated second in her class and was inducted into the National Honor Society. At Bellows Falls Union High School, she served in student government and participated in band, chorus, and sports, as well as other extracurricular activities. Even with the constraints of Covid, Stephanie was able to volunteer in her community. Her many activities included serving the Girl Scouts, the Junior Auxiliary of the American Legion, and as a planning commissioner for the Town of Rockingham. Stephanie is described as a natural leader, always making her peers feel supported and offering a sense of belonging to all.

The Laura Cody McNaughton Memorial Fund Public Health and Community Service Scholarship is given to an applicant from Springfield or a surrounding Vermont high school who best exemplifies Laura’s scholarship, leadership, and commitment to the community. Students with a demonstrated interest in public health are given particular consideration. There were 13 outstanding applicants last year with truly amazing academic and community service credentials.

The fund is the result of generous contributions from local individuals and businesses, as well as proceeds from the Lace-Up for Laura 5K race, which occurs in Weathersfield annually on the last weekend in June. Students accepted to college are encouraged to apply for the 2023 scholarship through their high school guidance counselors.

Hey Weathersfield dogs (and their humans)
Officer AJ says, don't forget to renew your dog's license before April 1

By law, all dogs and wolf hybrids six months of age (if first rabies vaccine 3 months) or older must be licensed by April 1st each year in the town where the dog resides. Licenses are only available through the Town Clerk's Office and may be purchased in person or by mail if there is a current rabies certificate on file. Licenses are available after mid January each year. 

Weathersfield does not currently license cats.

In order to license your dog you must present the following items:
A copy of a valid rabies certificate (unless one is already on file).
Proof of Spay/Neuter certificate (if applicable)
Cash or a check made payable to "Town of Weathersfield"

Fee Before April 1st:
Neutered/Spayed: $5.00 + $5.00 state = $10.00
Male/Female: $9.00 + $5.00 state = $14.00

Fee after April 1st:
Neutered/ Spayed: $7.00 + $5.00 state = $12.00 Male/ Female: $13.00 + $5.00 state = $18.00

Second Vermonter Accused of Assaulting Police at January 6 Riot
 DEREK BROUWER for Seven Days

A 41-year-old Vermont man was arrested on Wednesday for his involvement in the January 6, 2021, insurrectionist riot at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Federal prosecutors say William Arthur Nichols Jr., of Manchester, used a clear plastic shield to strike police officers during a scrum on the Capitol steps. He's charged with assaulting an officer using a deadly weapon and seven other offenses related to his alleged actions on January 6.

Nichols worked his way to the front of the rioters and used the shield to "push and hit officers over the course of several hours," prosecutors said.

Nichols is just the second Vermont resident to be charged in the sweeping federal investigation. Nicholas Languerand, formerly of Wolcott, is serving a 44-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to a similar assault charge.


House committee advances spending bill extending emergency housing through June
 Lola Duffort reporting for VT Digger

The roughly 2,800 Vermonters who are living in motels through the state’s emergency housing programs might get a three-month reprieve from being kicked out at the end of March.

The powerful House Appropriations Committee has endorsed a $21 million plan to keep the programs going basically as is through June 30. As it stands, federal funding for the emergency housing programs — which Vermont had dramatically scaled up in the Covid-19 pandemic-era thanks to Congressional aid packages — is projected to run dry March 31.

The money for emergency housing was tucked inside the budget adjustment bill advanced Monday by the budget-writing panel on an 8-4 vote that fell along party lines. Democrats voted for the overall spending plan and Republicans were unanimously opposed — an unusual scenario in a state that often passes budget bills with tripartisan support.

House Appropriations chair Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, said Democratic lawmakers wanted to buy enough time to give the state another chance to come up with a plan for the state’s unhoused population.

“We are going to be running out of money and these decisions will come soon enough naturally,” she said. “But we think we don't have to make that decision today.”

The state’s fiscal year begins in July, and the annual budget adjustment act is a midyear true-up of the current budget. Traditionally a small, sleepy affair, it has ballooned in size and importance in recent years, as lawmakers have worked at a rapid pace to get unprecedented surpluses and federal aid packages out the door.


Lawsuit alleges mismanagement, sexual harassment and retaliation at Woodstock Inn

 Ethan Weinstein reporting for VT Digger

A lawsuit filed earlier this month against leaders of the Woodstock Inn and Resort portrays an abusive culture at Woodstock’s flagship hotel and at the nearby Billings Farm — including sexual misconduct, discrimination and retaliation against whistleblowers — that was allegedly upheld by management.

The suit was filed in Windsor County Superior Court by Ellen Pomeroy, the former board chair of the Woodstock Foundation, and Sal Iannuzzi, the board’s former vice chair. The foundation owns the Woodstock Inn as well as Billings Farm and Museum, a dairy farm and operating partner of the adjoining Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park.

The two plaintiffs were removed from the board in November, according to the suit.

They allege that fellow board members acted beyond their authority when they suspended and removed Iannuzzi and Pomeroy from the board in what the plaintiffs described as retaliation for investigating a slew of employee complaints.

As outlined in the lawsuit, the employee complaints included allegations that women were paid less than male counterparts and denied promotions to senior positions; that female employees faced “recurrent, offensive sexual comments and behavior by both members of management and co-employees”; that management allowed a sexual relationship between a staff member and her male supervisor, later promoting both; that management allowed “a human resource training manager’s frequent use of the ‘N word’ ”; and that management allowed LGBTQ+ staff members to be harassed.


Vermont is shutting down some prison work programs

Peter D'Auria reporting for VT Digger

For years, incarcerated Vermonters have made furniture, street signs, and paper products for state and local governmental entities — at a fraction of the state’s minimum wage.

Among other products, Vermont Correctional Industries has made desks for government buildings, manuals for the Department of Motor Vehicles, and a variety of aluminum signs that appear around the state.

Now those programs are shutting down, amid what corrections officials say is a larger shift toward vocational training.

“We're trying to redesign the system to be more responsive to the incarcerated individuals we’re serving, so that they're successful when they get out,” Nicholas Deml, Vermont’s corrections commissioner, said in an interview. “And we're filling some economic gaps for the state.”

Vermont Correctional Industries is made up of four “shops” where incarcerated people produce the goods at wages that run from 25 cents an hour to a maximum of $1.35 an hour, according to a wage scale provided by a spokesperson. Prisons will also match a person’s savings upon their release.

Vermont’s prisons also employ incarcerated people in other areas, such as kitchens and laundry facilities. Others work on crews outside of prisons as part of their sentences, performing tasks like mowing lawns in public spaces. Those programs will not be affected by the shift.

Vermont Correctional Industries’ license plate shop, which is located at Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans, will also continue to operate.


End to national Covid-19 emergency order could affect Vermont’s tools to fight the disease
Erin Petenko reporting for VT Digger

On Monday, President Joe Biden announced that the federal government plans to end the emergency declarations for Covid-19 on May 11, a move that could affect Vermonters’ ability to access vaccinations, testing and treatment for the disease.

The national emergency and public health emergency declarations related to Covid have been in place since 2020, allowing a wide variety of regulatory changes on insurance, health systems, telehealth, pharmacies and vaccine authorizations.

One of the biggest impacts has been requiring Medicaid, Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and private insurers to cover Covid-related care without cost sharing, along with providing a way for uninsured people to get coverage for those services.

Agency of Human Services spokesperson Rachel Feldman said via email that Medicaid coverage for Covid testing and treatment without cost sharing would extend through Sept. 30, 2024.

The agency could not confirm as of Tuesday whether other state-run programs would change their coverage as a result of the federal declarations ending.

At a press conference Tuesday, Gov. Phil Scott said the decision to end the emergency declarations was appropriate since Covid is “just going to become part of our everyday challenges.”

“We've gotten through this emergency. The vaccine we have is viable, and it will become — just like we do with the normal flu, I believe — that you'll have Covid boosters on a yearly basis of some sort,” Scott said.

But Anne Sosin, a health equity researcher at Dartmouth College, pushed back on Scott’s characterization of the pandemic, pointing out that Covid remained the third-leading cause of death in 2022, even as pandemic restrictions were rolled back.

“We're continuing to lose more Americans each week than in the 9/11 attack,” she said. “Even though we're out of the earliest phases of the pandemic, it's not in any way comparable to the flu or other respiratory viruses.”

Concert Review
Saved by the 90s
Lebanon Opera House
Lebanon, NH

On what was likely the coldest night of the season, it was wicked HOT inside Lebanon Opera House (LOH) last Friday.

The party band Saved by the 90s was in the house and it was rocking.

According to their website: Saved by the 90s is a national sensation that is bringing back the 90s with a huge interactive party, featuring a live 90s cover band that will blow your socks off!

With live bands stationed all over the USA, Saved by the 90s puts on parties regularly at theaters and clubs where anybody can jump in and join the party. The bands also specialize in playing the best music at weddings, corporate parties, and other private events.

Saved by the 90s New England (the group that performed at LOH) is based in Boston and performs all over Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Upstate New York, and Connecticut. 

A small but LOUD and lively crowd attended the show, rocking and dancing to tunes by Blink 182, Smashmouth, Sophie B. Hawkins, Eagely-Eye Cherry, Deep Blue Something and lots more. 

I've heard these band on the radio, but music from the 60s and 70s is more my style (am I dating myself?)

The show ran 2 hours with no intermission.
Salt hill provided adult beverages in the lobby.

The Kaskadenac Nordic Ski Club
Your Snow Dances Worked!

The Nordic ski season is about to begin and local families are invited to take part in the Kaskadenac Nordic Ski Club, which is a FREE community recreational activity.

Kaskadenac Nordic Ski Club has Nordic skis, boots and poles in a variety of sizes; several miles of groomed trails that intersect with VAST trail 506 which is maintained by Weathersfield Pathfinders; and 2 weekly guided ski sessions for kids and families.

Guided Ski Lessons
The guided ski sessions are led by Sean Whalen and Ashley Hensel-Browning, and go from 3:00-4:30 each Thursday and Friday, when safe skiing conditions prevail

They teach essential skills for safety, comfort and enjoyment of Nordic skiing. They are on a Weathersfield School bus route, and kids may be dropped off there (3057 Weathersfield Center Road) after school on ski days, by arrangement between parents, school, and the club. 
Beginners are welcome and will find easy trails for learning.

Outside of the guided adventures, skiers are welcome to ski the trails any time they're open. 
(*see note about waiver, below). The trail system is well connected and you can find your own level. 

Snacks are also part of the experience. On the guided ski days they offer hot cocoa and healthy snacks starting around 4:00. 

To ski the trails here, you'll have to sign a waiver that says you won't sue them if you or your child gets hurt. This is standard practice for ski clubs. Waivers are available and can be signed at the clubhouse.

Please stop at the clubhouse at 3057 Weathersfield Center Road to sign a legal waiver before enjoying the trails; after that, you're good to go.

Donate, Volunteer
Kaskadenac Nordic would love to accept donations of ski equipment, volunteer time, money and other in-kind gifts. All of that will keep this wonderful free community activity going. 

If you're in a family that skis with them and would like to contribute healthy snacks to Kaskadenac Nordic, please do contact them. They are looking for donations of fresh or dried fruits, baked goods, and milk for the cocoa. 

Gas in the snowmobile, cocoa on the hob, parts on the groomer, skis on the rack.

For more information contact Sean Whalen and/or Ashley Hensel-Browning, 3057 Weathersfield Center Road, Weathersfield, VT 05151  (802)263-5253
