VERGENNES — Did you know that according to some studies between 2 and 6 percent of the population struggles with hoarding disorder? In Addison County that could be as many as 2,000 people. 
The Addison County Hoarding Task Force will present a one-night screening of David C. Coffin’s film “Beyond Hoarding” with panel discussion to follow on Sunday, Oct. 6, 3-5 p.m. 
The event will be held at the Vergennes Opera House. Donations will be accepted.
