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 . . .

Pierre Bensusan at Next Stage on Friday, April 18

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present French-Algerian acoustic guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan at Next Stage on Friday, April 18 at 7:30 pm. If World Music is music that pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments and harmonic colors, Pierre Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time.

Born in Oran, French-Algeria, in 1957, when France was decolonizing its Empire, Pierre Bensusan's family moved to Paris when he was 4. He began formal studies on piano at the age of 7 and at 11 taught himself guitar. Influenced in those early days by the folk revival blooming in Britain, France and North America, Bensusan began first to explore his own diverse musical heritage and then moved to the horizons beyond. At 17, he signed his first recording contract, and one year later his first album “Pres de Paris” won the Grand Prix du Disque upon his debut at the Montreux Festival in Switzerland.
