Rebuilding Together*Greater Burlington [181]

6/12/10: Rebuilding Together*Greater Burlington organizes community volunteers to spruce up homes owned by low income, disabled and elderly local residents.

This month they converged at Barbara's house in Winooski to provide a new roof, an energy efficient picture window, a layer of fresh paint on the shed, new gutters, a stable front porch and some basement clean up.

There's no place like home, and in this economy, it's nice to know that your neighbor's have your back when repairs fall by the wayside.

Music: Brothers McCann, Different Colors, "Shambles"

Last Sunday thousands of girls and their supporters participated in a 5K run at the Champlain Valley Expo.

Whether running, doing high octane warm ups or screaming for the governor, the girls' positivity and Girl Power was infectious.

Runaway Pond Bicentennial [178]

200 years ago the Long Pond ran away from Glover, never to be seen again.

2 billion gallons of water fled all the way to Lake Memphremagog, reshaping the Vermont landscape along the way.

Amazingly, no one was killed in this impressive natural disaster and the town gathered to celebrate this weekend. The event was organized by the Glover Historical Society and included a play by locals Bread & Puppet.

Read what Margot Harrison wrote about the Runaway Pond event.
