By the way for Jun. 13

Just a reminder that Bristol’s Main Street will be closed off to all traffic from 1–9 p.m. this Saturday, June 15, from the traffic light at North Street to Mountain Street, for the 10th annual Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair. Through traffic will be detoured via North Street, Spring Street and Mountain Street. Cars parked on Main Street after noon on Saturday will be towed at owner’s expense.

Town of Lincoln transfer station permits expire on June 15. The new stickers are available for purchase during business hours at the Lincoln Town Office or at the Lincoln General Store. It costs $15 for the first one and $4 for each additional or replacement sticker per household. You must be a Lincoln resident or property owner to purchase one. This permit allows you to use the Lincoln Transfer Station to dispose of household trash, recycling, tires, metal, woody debris or composted food. There are additional fees for trash and tire disposal, which you pay to the attendant at the transfer station. The Lincoln Transfer Station is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
 
Attention those who work at, or will soon be going to, Porter Hospital: The official start date for construction on the new front entry ramp to the 94-year-old main hospital building is Monday, June 17, but workers will start laying out site barriers for the job on Friday, June 14. So use of that front entrance will end until construction wraps on Aug. 20.
 
Do you enjoy movies and have some free time in late August? Consider volunteering at the fifth Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, to be held in the county’s shire town this Aug. 22-25. Volunteers play a huge part in the festival. Around 75 percent of the festival venues are volunteer-run, and all event photos come from volunteer photographers. People also donate their time to run the MNFF’s merchandise store. Volunteers are paid in tickets, applicable at any fest screening, with the exception of the opening and closing nights. The MNFF showcases the work of first- and second-time filmmakers. The festival last year hosted 60 filmmakers and many distinguished guests for panel discussions and film-minded conversation. If you’d like to join this thriving festival community or have any questions, please email [email protected]
 
If you are doing spring cleaning or moving and have extra-large, collapsible metal dog cages in good condition (no rust) please consider giving them to Homeward Bound, the Human Society of Addison County. Please deliver said crates to the animal shelter at 236 Boardman St. in Middlebury.
 
Anyone who enjoys the weekly Wednesday night concerts by the Bristol Town Band and wants to join up can call Carol Weston at 802-281-2315 and become a part of a 149-year-old tradition.
