Talk on the War Legacies Project

Sue Hammond of the War Legacies Project will be speaking at the Putney Public Library Tues., Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.
The WLP focuses on the long-term impacts of war to develop a fuller understanding of the costs of war, increase public understanding of these costs, foster public dialogue about the impacts of war and conduct programs that help mitigate the impacts of war at home and abroad. Currently, their work is primarily focused on the long-term health and environmental impacts of the use of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War and the on-going impacts of unexploded ordinance. Sue is leaving for Vietnam Thursday, so it will be very timely. Sponsored by the Brattleboro branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).

Looking for Babysitter with Experience with Toddlers

Hello! Our family is looking for an energetic, organized caregiver to babysit our three-year old daughter on Tuesday afternoons (3 PM - 6PM). Must drive and have own car in order to pick her up from pre-school and bring her to our home in Westminster West.

We are hoping the same person can babysit approximately 8-10 additional hours/ week, probably on Sunday (12-5) and Wednesday or Thursday night (we are flexible on exact times). Native Spanish language ability is a plus, as we aim to be a bilingual household. Pay is dependent on experience and skill.
