The Library and the Grange are excited to announce a series of free outdoor music and farm events this summer.
Thank you from the Chair of the CVSD School Board’s and a Charlloter’s thanks to voters.
After applying for several grants and now having been super successful in being awarded not one but two grants this year, the Grange is now busy meeting the requirements on the first one so that Slater Construction can begin the work on the beautiful, inside schoolhouse windows on the first floor. We are pleased to be able to work again with a local contractor on this project. You should be seeing activity on this project this summer.
The Charlotte Grange is proud to host Pete Sutherland and Oliver Scanlon of Pete’s Posse on Sunday, March 8 at 4 p.m. Pete and Oliver will present “Fiddlers of the New Generation,” a showcase of their current students.
If you want to hear some great music in a beautiful, cozy historic building close to home, check out these events happening at the Charlotte Grange Hall in the coming weeks.
The Grange was slow in coming to New England, and Vermont’s first grange was the Green Mountain Grange #1 in St. Johnsbury, formed in 1871. Vermont, however, became the first state in New England and only the seventh state in the U.S. to form a State Grange, which happened in July of 1872. Several granges were formed during that time throughout Vermont although not in Chittenden County.
Please join us in preparing Thanksgiving baskets for approximately 30 Charlotte families. We’ll meet in the Charlotte Congregational Church vestry on Friday, Nov. 17, from 8 until about 10 a.m. This is a festive occasion and all are welcome. The baskets will be distributed to families in need the following morning. Please also mark your calendars for Friday, Dec. 15, same place and time, to assemble the Christmas/Holiday baskets. Bring your friends and just show up—we love the help!
