Century-old Greenwood Cemetery sign restored

Greenwood restored sign.png

BRISTOL — The sign that was installed over the middle gate of the Greenwood Cemetery in Bristol in 1904 stood proudly for many years.

But the elements took their toll on the metal gateway, which stood just north of Route 116 near the base of Stone Hill, less than a mile west of the village. And the sign, which had been damaged at least three times since it was installed, was removed after being badly damaged the last time about 25 years ago.

By Addison Independent



SBRAY artist picture with animal.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — When you see one of Susan Raber Bray’s sculptures on display at Edgewater Gallery, it instantly grabs your attention. The effortlessness of her forms paradoxes the meticulous technique used to create them. Her primitive animals and their rustic appearance act as a vessel for the viewer to connect with their own personal memories and emotions prompted by the pieces.

Susan has perfected her forms over years of working hard at her craft. Her successful career however, started from a unique introduction into the world of pottery.

Note of Appreciation: Plays were a success thanks to the community

Posted on December 12, 2016 |
By Anne Gleason



Thank you, all!

What more can we say? In the words of “Mary Poppins:” “Anything can happen if you let it.” The support, enthusiasm and cooperative spirit of the Mount Abraham five-town-community-and-beyond audiences for the play were unprecedented. There were more folks in the seats over these four performances than in any other production run of the past twenty years’ worth of fall musicals.
