South Woodstock Vermont

Diana Brown’s VT Standard Column 5/13

Bleeding heart, dog-toothed violet, scarlet trillium. Colt’s foot, forsythia, squirrel’s teeth, May apple, crocus. Lion-faced daffodowndillies, troutlilies, lungwort, marsh marigold, lesser Solomon’s seal, hepacatia, bloodroot. I could go on and on. First one shows, then the next, and the next and the next. They lead me through our woods road, and I must be careful because all are tiny and underfoot. Every year they call me out and there are some that appear so briefly that I never remember their names, and I am always amazed when I discover them. These varieties appeared magically at least a week early this year.   As I write the woodlands and meadows and byways are covered with ferns, jack-in-the pulpit, greater Solomon’s seal, and wild apple. Fiddleheads, rhubarb, and ramps are available now, and are delicious to look at and eat.

Christy McCuaig was born 22 years ago midst all this spring beauty. Weren’t Mary and Carl tickled? – Of course all the rest of the Fullertons were thrilled as well. Happy birthday, Christy, and also to Susan Ford who has a birthday on May 19th. Also happy Birthday to my David, who entered the world on May 12th. (Of course it was a number of years ago- not yesterday!)

Susan was most kind to respond to my plea for news and celebration dates. Thanks so much, Susan.

That date I asked you to save – remember, Saturday June 19th?- I really hope you did, because plans are firming up and this benefit and celebration are not to be missed. Paul Regan, who is one of our community group organizing this event, has written an excellent article which appears in this very same issue of the Standard. Paul says:

‘On June 19th a very special day of Community Wide Celebration and coming together will take place in the Hamlet of South Woodstock.  This day – long series of events are being planned to raise funds to help the country of Haiti rebuild. A $25 ticket donation includes admission to all three events and is tax deductible,  In this effort we are pleased to be partnering with Habitat for Humanity International, having worked in Haiti for the past 26 years they are a much-respected worldwide organization’.

The events are as follows: Your ticket admits you to all events.

2 pm at the Academy:  “Old Time Rules will Prevail: The Fiddle Contest in Vermont”, a presentation of both current and historical significance. The Perkins Academy and Historical Association will be hosting.

At 5pm at the Firehouse: “Chicken Barbeque Supper ” will feature a musical accompaniment by “The Panhandelers”, Vermont’s own very talented Steel Band, sponsored by the The South Woodstock Community Club and South Woodstock Volunteer Fire Department.

A Saturday evening concert at 7pm:  Featuring “The Onion River Dixieland Jazz Band” of Burlington Vermont in a New Orleans Dixieland Salute, and will be held at the Community Church here in South Woodstock.

Again the $25 ticket donation includes admission to all three events. The South Woodstock Country Store will be selling tickets. The entire proceeds from the full day of events will benefit the efforts by Habitat for Humanity in the earthquake-devastated country of Haiti, so the ticket price is tax deductible. For special family pricing, or for more information please call :802-457- 2948 or 802-457-1819.

As Paul points out,”This will be a great time for Woodstock neighbors, along with seasonal and part-time Vermonters to get together and support a great cause.”
See you there, Saturday, June 19. (Again, read Paul’s entire article in the pages of this issue of the Standard.)

And last, but certainly not least, please do come to see American Divas, at the High School this weekend. May 14, 15, and 16- Friday Sat, at 7:30 Sunday at 5:30. Yoh Theatre Players, great singers, music and songs drawn through the decades, and telling the story of American Women. The band is live and includes WUHS musicians and Al Alessi.
