By the way for Feb. 20
You can look for another familiar face on national TV this coming Monday evening, Feb. 24, when Bristol native Willoughby Morse is scheduled to appear on the NBC show “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” A 2012 graduate of Mount Abraham Union High School, Morse has been playing drums in various bands since middle school, including the quintet Madaila. Now he’s setting the beat for singer-songwriter Caroline Rose, whose namesake band — including Morse — is scheduled to perform on “Late Night,” which begins at 12:35 p.m.
The WinterFest events planned for Middlebury on Sunday were cancelled because of — cold weather. Although Sunday was a beautiful day, the sub-zero temps on Saturday morning meant machinery used to make the forms for the snow sculptures that would be carved on Sunday just didn’t work, along with some other circumstances outside the organizers’ control. So, officials with the Better Middlebury Partnership cancelled WinterFest. As a consolation, BMP folks gave away free hot dogs and cocoa to families sledding at the hill by the Parks and Rec building, and free skating was offered at the Memorial Sports Center on Monday.
Come meet the candidates for Bristol selectboard on Friday, Feb. 21, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Bristol Fire Station meeting room. The candidates include Darla Senecal and Bill Mount, both vying for a two-year seat. Incumbent Michelle Perlee is running unopposed for a three-year term. Bristol members of the League of Women Voters are hosting this question-and-answer forum. The candidates will answer previously prepared questions as well as questions from the audience. There will be light refreshments. Anne Wallace will moderate. The forum will also be featured on NEAT TV.
The moment you’ve all been waiting for: The theme for Bristol’s parade and July 4, 2020, celebration is: “Celebrating 150 years of the Bristol Band.” This year’s Grand Marshall will be Nancy Wilson, director of the Lawrence Memorial Library, who will be accompanied by retired Bristol Band members. Mark it on your calendar and start planning your float.
