Christmas is the season for helping others in our communities. Here in Vernon and throughout Southeastern Vermont we have many great organizations that are looking for donations and support. Your gift of time, money, food or clothing could change someone’s life. Often it’s a matter of putting food on a family’s table or helping with heating expenses but it can also mean providing a little girl with the first warm coat she’s ever had.
A couple of our favorite local charities are Project Feed the Thousands, Toys for Tots and the Christmas Stocking sponsored by the Brattleboro Reformer. We have collection bins here at Stonehurst if you’re looking for a place to drop things off. We’ll be delivering items to the Vernon Police Department next Friday, December 20. By the way, if you haven’t checked out the PD’s Facebook page (“Ho ho ho from the Vernon PoPo“), it’s worth a look. Lots of good local information and weather-road conditions reported there.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas season with lots of giving and hopefully some receiving too!

Our thanks go out to Vernon, USA's most famous DJ, the Great Tim Johnson of WTSA.net for inviting us into his studio for an interview highlighting the work of Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture Makers.
Tune in to 96.7FM and you'll hear snippets of our conversation with Tim interspersed with great music, local news and lots of fun and games.
Led by Tim, WTSA does a lot of good work for our community including projects like Feed the Thousands and The Reformer Christmas Stocking. We appreciate Tim's outreach work and are proud to be included in WTSA's fine programming.
