By the way for Nov. 29
We are thinking ahead to the Holiday Services listings for the Addison Independent. If you would like your holiday worship services included in the newspaper in the weeks leading up to the December holidays and have not already sent us this info, please send us your schedules — by next Monday, if possible. Send the name of your organization, the town, the dates and times of any special services, and a very short description of those services if necessary. Email: [email protected]. Thank you!
A reminder for folks interested in the re-design of Middlebury’s Triangle Park and a new park to be introduced off Printer’s Alley. A public feedback session on the parks will take place in the Middlebury town offices at 77 Main St. at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5. The meeting will include Vermont Agency of Transportation officials and Mark Hamelin, a landscape architect assigned to the project by the company VHB, which is managing the project.
Looking for some family fun this weekend?

Check out the winter yard sale, a.k.a. the “attic treasures.” Lunch starting at noon will include homemade soups, sandwiches, cookies, and Christmas tea.
Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival organizers are announcing a swap in the film schedule at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater. The film “Three Identical Strangers,” previously slated for a Jan. 13 screening, will instead be shown on Friday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. Meanwhile, the film originally scheduled to screen on Dec. 14 — “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” — will be shown on Jan. 13 at 2 p.m., also at Town Hall Theater. “Three Identical Strangers” is a documentary feature that tells the story of how three young men, who were all adopted, meet each other and find out they’re triplets who were separated at birth. “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” stars Melissa McCarthy in the role of Lee Israel, a best-selling celebrity biographer who made her living in the 1970s and ’80s forging letters she attributed to celebrities like Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.
