The Brattleboro Memorial Hospital Birthing Center announced the May and June program schedule for its New Moms Network, which meets every Wednesday from 9:30 to 11:00 AM in the BMH Exercise Room.
Chris Ellis, RD, presents “Starting Solids: Making Your Own Baby Food” on May 15. Ellis is a staff nutritionist at the Brattleboro Food Coop and part of the Early Education Services organization. On May 22, Dawn Kersula, RN, IBCLC, presents “The Advice I Would Give Someone Else About Birth.” Kersula is a perinatal specialist and lead lactation consultant at BMH. She is also president of the Vermont Lactation Association. The final Wednesday of the month, May 29, is an open session.
Strolling of the Heifers Weekend is fast approaching, and the organization is still in urgent need of volunteers to help make it happen.
Stroll Weekend was recently named one of America’s “Top 10 Summer Festivals” by travel-oriented website Livability.com. As always, Stroll organizers say, it will draw tens of thousands of people from far and wide to the area during the weekend of June 7-9.
“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.”

I have been teaching Geometry this year,
and trying my best to explain logic,
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.

After having to unexpectedly close for most of the winter, Brattleboro Cheese makes its triumphant return to Main Street!
The “little shop that could” reopened a few weeks ago, directly across the street from its old location. Now you may find your favorite cheeses at 39 Main Street!
Brattleboro Cheese is the only full-service cheese shop in the area. This means all of the shop’s fine Vermont, New England and imported cheeses are cut-to-order by friendly, knowledgeable individuals. None of the cheeses are pre-cut nor are they wrapped in plastic. This ensures the cheeses are sold at their peak quality, and customers are given the opportunity to try a cheese before they take it home.
This may seem a strange time to bring this up as there is no election looming, but for better or worse now is when it is hitting me.
Our New England neighbor, New Hampshire has an all woman congressional delegation – Senators Shaheen and Ayotte and Congresswomen Shea-Porter and Kuster, plus Governor Maggie Hassan. Vermont has never its whole history put a woman in one of those seats.
