PLEASE ATTEND MEETING: Clark Canal Community Association, Thursday, May 16th — 6:30 P.M., Agape Church
Each Summer for years, Peggy Longueil directed the program and we all thought she would continue forever. When Peggy died, it was our good fortune that Juanita Lane volunteered to keep the Summer program alive.
Through the Summer Program, neighbor kids have a place to be active and enjoy planned activities, including movies, swimming, and even did a marvelous job painting a mural at the Brattleboro Transportation Center!
This Wednesday, May 15th at 6 pm is game night at the Brattleboro Food Coop deli.
Who knows what we’ll play? Bring along a favorite you’ve been wanting to play and maybe we’ll play it. Usually Tim and Mike have enough games for everybody, but it never hurts to bring more.
You can look up my review of last month’s get together in Board Game group.
Recently we were informed that One Stop Country Pet would no longer be carrying EVO brand organic, raw dry dog food, the only kind our three boys have ever eaten. We finished the supply we had (which fell within the production time before Salmonella was identified in several Natura products).
We just spoke with another pet supply store in Boston and they, too, stopped carrying Natura products as a result of the problems Natura has had after being bought out by Proctor and Gamble, according to both stores.
For the last week or so, Agway on Putney Road has been having its seasonal sale of young chickens and ducks. There are five or so big bins filled with chicks, ducklings, and even a gosling or two, I think. They have some lamps to keep them warm, and food and water.
Ask for help and they’ll get a box and put your little feathered friends in it for you and you can be on your way.
On your way to what? When we were young, parents got us some duckings to raise. They started out indoors but quickly became backyard friends.

A recent LTE from Putney resident Elan Moses contained too much misinformation to be useful (Governor’s misguided views on gun control).
While his point that Vermont’s lack of gun legislation opens the door to many abuses, his suggestions for curing this were naïve and disingenuous.
“It does not mean we do not make efforts to make it harder to acquire semi-automatic weapons here in
Vermont”. I don’t think he has any idea what a Semi-Automatic firearm really is. (Unfortunately, this attitude is widespread in America. The very word “semi-automatic” has a high scare factor despite the fact that the
overwhelming majority of hunting rifles used in the USA today are semi-automatic).
Because, in fact, I do have relevant input and I’d like to share it with them ASAP. What is the best way in this town to get contact information to be able to connect with all of the members of a committee (by phone, or email, or whatever medium works for them)?

Ready for your weekend concert? Here’s one you are either going to love or hate.
There isn’t much middle ground with Dread Zeppelin. You either enjoy an Elvis impersonator singing Zeppelin songs with a reggae twist, or you do not.
I do. This band cracks me up. To my ear they do excellent, inventive cover songs with the right mix of love and parody. Mixing Heartbreaker with Heartbreak Hotel is genius.
