Wilson's Tree Farm is once again selling Fresh Pre-Cut Frasier Christmas Trees and beautiful Wreaths made in our workshop in Putney. Stop by our tree farm at 25 Millbrook Road in Putney or you can also purchase them at 3766 US Rt. 5 in the village of Westminster. You can reach us with any questions at (802) 258-7800.
This year Wilson Tree Farm is proud to be donating $5.00 from the sale of every tree to a very special cause. Stephanie Cerep, a beautiful young woman that I have come to know, has Down syndrome. Stephanie was recently accepted to Berkshire Hills Music Academy in So. Hadley, MA, a vocational school for young adults (18-30) with disabilities that focuses on music. Tuition is extremely high and there is no financial aid or scholarship monies available. For Steph to stay in this wonderful school she needs to raise money, which she is also doing on a fundraising website. If you would like to read about her or make a contribution, you can find her fundraising website at: http://www.youcaring.com/tuition-fundraiser/people-with-disabilities-deserve-a-meaningful-life-too-/90153.
Thank you for supporting local businesses! Hope to see you soon.

In all seriousness, a printing error omitted the months of May and June* from some of the 2014 Putney Historical Society calendars. If you purchased one before Dec. 6 and it has the error, please contact Betsy MacIsaac at email@example.com or 387-5790 for a replacement. Alternatively, if you bought it at a store, you could take it back and exchange it for a new one. (Please note that the replacement calendars will be available starting tomorrow, Dec. 7.)
*Why couldn’t we have lost February and March instead?
Thanks for your understanding. Happy Holidays from the PHS.

The Putney Conservation Commission is engaged in a multi-year Tracking Project designed to identify the most important wildlife crossings in town to inform town planning efforts. We are mapping wildlife crossings on 20 prioritized road sections (identified through a process of structural analysis) and 3 randomly selected sections. A few additional volunteers are welcome and needed.
Please come to a brief tracking meeting on Monday, December 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the Putney Cares Barn on Kimball Hill. The meeting will include a refresher on our tracking protocols, track identification, route assignments, materials, and refreshments. In January, we'll hold one or more on-the-snow trainings at Bare Hill. Come see if you would like to join us. You’ll have fun and our wildlife will appreciate it.

I am looking for volunteers for the Vermont Ombudsman Project. We protect the rights of people living in nursing homes, resident care homes, and assisted living. Do you love the elderly? Are you a good listener? A good problem solver? We ask volunteers for a 3 to 5 hour a week commitment, and attendance at a monthly meeting most months. We provide 20 hours of classroom training and 30 hours of training in the field. You will be assigned to one nursing home to start. It is a big job with big rewards. Please call Nancy Hood to learn more or to find out how to apply 800-769-9164.
