Community garden

A community garden is coming to Sawyerville! That's a pleasant thought for a chilly February day. It's a chance to exchange knowledge and take part in workshops, to promote physical activity and intergenerational activities, and to participate in sustainable development - recycling, composting, for example. And of course, to plant and harvest local fruits and vegetables. A community garden can be a place of beauty, a place of creativity, and a place to meet new people with shared interests.

The founding general assembly of the Sawyerville Community Garden is planned for Wednesday, February 19, at 7 p.m. The guest speaker is Jessica Hyman, who specializes in the management of community gardens. The provisional committee will present details of the project so far, and propose a future path. After a discussion period, an administrative council will be elected. Everyone is welcome to come and share ideas, skills and knowledge. Info (evenings): Chantal Bolduc at 819-889-3196 or Jennifer McMullin at 819-889-2480.

Handy an ox

Do you know how to "handy an ox"?

If so, Campbell McBurney would like to hear from you. In his diary in the late 1800s, his ancestor Joseph "Sheepskin Joe" Taylor Jr. wrote about handying an ox. Campbell says Joe's son Simeon was the last person he knew of who used oxen on the farm. Surely they knew how, but they're not so handy to ask. Let me know, please, at 819-300-2374.


Do you live in Bury, Cookshire or Sawyerville? Are you interested in having a hot meal complete with soup and dessert delivered to your door? For $7.50, once a week?

If you'd like more information, please contact Rachel Garber at the CAB, at 819-560-8540 option 9.

Island Brook is coming alive with fire and friendship on Valentine's evening, Friday, February 14, at 7 p.m. The new Newport 4 Horizons Recreational Committee invites one and all, young and old, singles and families, to join an evening walk by torchlight.

Info: 819-875-3895 or 819-366-2028.

Who cares?

Who cares for the caregivers? That's the topic of a free interactive health education videoconference. It's about the experience of unpaid caregivers.

To participate, plan to attend both sessions - they're free, and at the Eaton Valley CLC, 523 Stokes St., Bury. Info: 819-872-3771 or
