“We can’t pull it off without a lot of time and effort contributed by volunteers,” said Vick Friedman, the event’s volunteer coordinator, “but it’s very rewarding — everyone who comes to our events is in a great mood and they really appreciate all the things our volunteers do.”

deduction vs induction,
and the ever present,
always useful, abductive “reasoning.”

Vermont Women, Native Americans, and African Americans: Out of the Shadows of History,
Wednesday May 8, 2013, 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM
Vermont’s constitution, drafted in 1777, was one of the most enlightened documents of its time, but in contrast, the history of Vermont has largely been told through the stories of influential white men. Join local scholar Cyndy Bittinger at the Brooks Memorial Library on Wednesday, May 8, at 7 PM on a journey through the forgotten tales of the often overlooked roles that women, Native Americans, and African Americans played in Vermont’s history.
Her book, Vermont Women, Native Americans, and African Americans, takes a fresh look at our state’s history, uncovering hidden stories from the earliest inhabitants to present-day citizens. Ms. Bittinger explores where these marginalized groups are missing from historical narratives and explains their unique experiences and the ways that they contributed.
We are looking for recommendations for someone insured to paint the inside of a house in Brookline, Vermont. Just north of Newfane.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
