Donations are needed for Charlotte Cemetery Commission

Be one of the first 25 people to make a tax-deductible donation of at least $25 to the Town of Charlotte Cemetery Commission for its “Fix the Fence” in West Burying Ground and other projects and receive a complimentary copy of the book Fences in the Landscape Talk – Are We Listening?, a whimsical photographic essay with text and photos by Larry Hamilton and completed after Larry’s death by Linda Hamilton.

This book will change the way you look at the landscape. You will start noticing fences more. And you will wonder about why they are there and who built them. You will notice how they are built and from what materials. In other words, you will pause and listen for the interesting stories fences can tell. Larry’s charming photographs from around the world highlight both familiar and unfamiliar types of fences. With historic background and commentary that is sometimes whimsical and sometimes provocative, you are invited to observe and reflect.

Make your donation to Town of Charlotte Cemetery Commission and receive your copy of the book at the Charlotte Senior Center on Wednesday, Oct. 18, after the lunch program or at the Town Clerk’s Office during regular business hours.

For information about the “Fix the Fence” and other projects, contact Cemetery Commission Chair Viki Zulkoski at (802) 236-2813. Copies of Fences in the Landscape Talk – Are We Listening? are available for sale at Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne.
