Just before we all head on out for winter break, check out the work of the 45 students in Prof. John Elder’s Farm Stories class. They’ve spent the semester gathering stories from 11 farms in the region. An opening reception will be held December 7th, 4-6PM at the Vermont Folklife Center (in town next to Otter Creek Bakery). The exhibit runs through December 31st. Below is a preview of audio and photos from the exhibit:
This photo-pair: the old one is from Monument Farms and shows Richard James and Marjory Bingham James in 1926/1927, courtesy of Millicent Rooney. The other one is taken by student Kate Olen and shows Spencer Elmer on the Elmer Farm.
How do you create a broomball rink? Over the course of several days, facilities added layers of water snow-removed area on McCullough “green” (not green this time of year). Yesterday, the final layer went on — there’s no zamboni so it’ll have to last for the rest of winter!
Now, it’s time to breakout the broomball. As soon as they get the rink-side lighting installed, night games are a must!
