The Next Generation of Young Adults Calling for a Greener Future

PUTNEY, VT - The Putney School is once again buzzing with students who are planning for their third-annual Earth Day on April 26, 2014. This year’s festival offers: music courtesy of the local band SIMBA, a delicious variety of Vermont’s locally made food, nature-based activities for kids, and numerous workshops focused on sustainability.
This year's theme is “Activism,” a concept that is underscored by the two speakers presenting. The keynote speaker, Liz Putnam, is the founder of the Student Conservation Association and the first conservationist to ever receive the Presidential Citizen’s Medal, the nation’s second-highest civilian honor. The second speaker, Jay O'Hara, is the founder of the website http://coalisstupid.org and has a unique way of expressing his dislike for coal.

Hire Putney School students to work for you--proceeds go to Citta (an international NGO)

Charitable Work Day is The Putney School's way of contributing to the global community by donating our labor towards a cause. This year's Charitable Work Day will be Saturday, May 10th.

This year we have elected to donate the funds we raise to Citta (http://citta.org/), an organization dedicated to providing access to healthcare and education in some of the poorest and most isolated places in the world. Citta also works holistically with these communities to help them develop their prospects for sustainable economic development.

Need something done around your home? You can hire students to come to your home to do yardwork or housework for $8 an hour, for four hours in the morning or two hours in the afternoon (or both). The proceeds from our labor will then go to Citta. If you'd like to hire Putney School students on May 10th, please complete the Project Request Form at http://www.putneyschool.org/charitable-work-day. If you'd like to speak with someone for more information, please call 802-490-3743.

Home for Cichilid Wanted!

My solo cichlid who has grown rather large - a good 3 inches long I would say - will likely not be nice to the new smaller cichilds I plan to import to a new tank. If you have a favorable situation for him/her I would be so happy to gift you! bhallett@sover.net

The G Store, Next Stage, and now... THE PUTNEY COMMUNITY CENTER needs us!

[posted for the Putney Community Center]
QUIZ: What is home to the Putney Foodshelf, dog training, zumba classes, the Putney Co-op annual dinner meeting, the recent Osprey talk to benefit Putney Mountain Association, private parties, and all sorts of other community events?

Yup, you've got it right—The Putney Community Center on Christian Square, right around the corner from Dosolutions. This historic building was originally a Baptist Church, but it has served as a central community center since 1925. Few people realize that the Community Center donates space for the Foodshelf. This is a huge gift to our community, as the Foodshelf (open Saturday mornings 9-10 and Tuesday evenings 6-7) serves more than 400 food-insecure adults and children—our neighbors—each month.

We've pulled together as a community on so many other projects, and now it's time for us to pay attention to the Putney Community Center. Together, we can do it. It's a great place for a community event or private party, boasting a sound system, stage, small kitchen, tables, chairs, all at reasonable rental rates.

To fully restore the Putney Community Center we need to fund . . .
