green mountain passport - a discount program for seniors and veterans
To be eligible for a passport, a person must be:

A legal resident of Vermont and is 62 years of age or older or A veteran of the uniformed services.

To receive a Green Mountain Passport, just fill out an application at the Town Clerk’s Office and pay a $2.00 fee.  (The Green Mountain Passport Program began in 1973 by enactment of the General Assembly.)  

notes from the zoning administrator 
Camping season is here!  The recreational vehicles are on the move, and plans for the new deer camp are on the drawing board.  To avoid any zoning issues with the State & Town, kindly keep in mind:  

A “primitive camp” is limited to only a sink, and can be occupied for a total of 60 days per year, or a maximum continuous use of 21 days (VT Waste Water Rules).  An outhouse or composting toilet is usually O.K. to use with a primitive camp.  

Regardless how “rustic”, any upgrade of a structure that includes bathing and toilet facilities requires a VT Waste Water Permit (with a potable water supply & an approved septic system).  It does not matter whether it is used seasonally or year-round.  

A camper (R.V., travel trailer, etc.) that is self contained, may solve the waste water discharge issues.  Local zoning requires camper storage to be in the back portion of a parcel, and set back at least 12 feet from all property boundaries.  Campers may not be occupied or used for long-term living purposes.  

Questions?  Check out the Zoning Rules on line at www.wallingfordvt.com or call 802-446-2974.  

Best Wishes for a great time in our beautiful “Back Woods”.  Jeff Biasuzzi

the gilbert hart library
The library has been wonderfully busy this summer, with programs and activities for all ages and interests.  The Dig Into Reading Summer Program has been very well attended.  On July 2, Larry Peyton displayed his extensive collection of fossils and other artifacts to a captive audience of about 20 youth and adults.  Tuesday, August 6 we'll explore stuff under the ground once more when Marlene Dawson shares her collection of rocks and minerals at 10:30am in the Klock Room.  Everyone is welcome.  Other July programs for children included Tuesday morning stort times, making vegetable garden pizzas with Julie Redington on  July 13, and a great performance by Summer Encore Theatre on July 24 in the afternoon.  The program culminates on Saturday, August 10 at 2 p.m., when the Four Winds Nature Institute will be on the back lawn of the GHL to dissect a rotting log!  The "Down & Dirty Details" is ideal for kids ages 5-12 years and adults who wish to come along and learn more about real life decomposers like worms, insects, and fungi.

The VT READS selection Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry was explored by community members during a discussion and a wonderful evening of readings and music on July 16.  Many thanks to the readers:  Wendy Savery, Chris Heintz, Linda Kulas, Micheal Luzader, Lois Johnstone, Dan Buckley, and Charlotte and Martha Patton who in total read 32 poems from the collection.  The music was performed by Phil Henry of West Rutland and Micheal Luzuder.  20+ people enjoyed this event and the refreshments afterward provided by the Friends of the Library.  This month, we revisit the collection (copies are still available at the library) with an afternoon Poetry Slam on Wednesday, August 14 at 3:30 p.m.  This event is for all ages; come and bring a favorite poem to share, whether from the VT READS book, another anthology, or your own writing.  We'll share poems in the Klock Room and celebrate this form of artistic expression.

In August copies of the September book club selection (meeting Wednesday, September/18 @ 3:30 p.m.) will be available.  The Wednesday evening French conversation group meets from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Klock Room through August, then will be taking a break for a bit during the fall.  Watch for a film series (dates & movies TBA) beginning in September.

Thank you to all who have responded so graciously to the annual fundraising letter from the Board of Trustees.  We have also had many donations recently and they are much appreciated.  And, to the many volunteers who help staff the library, do work on special projects such as the book sale, flower barrels, covering and shelving books, and more:  THANK YOU.  As the saying goes, "Volunteers are unpaid not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."

hart lines
We took a vacation in June: time off from our monthly meetings, and time off writing our Hart Lines column, What we did instead was to honor Wendy, our Librarian, for all she’s been able to accomplish in the year or so that she’s been running the Library. So, we put on a luncheon at Auer’s house and had a good time doing it.  

Now we are back on track with meetings and with activities. Three windows in the Children’s room have been taken down and will be repaired and reinstalled. Other windows will also be taken care of in their turn, all of which helps to preserve our historic building. The Lexan remains in the window to preserve and protect the window area when the window is away being fixed.  

The Plant Sale back in May was quite successful, netting us about $432. I like the idea of having samples of herbal items for taste-testing. You get a better idea of what the different herbs taste like.  

This month (July) has found the Library using the Vermont Reads text, Poetry 180, a turning back to poetry compiled by Billy Collins, to do some readings of modern poetry. Much of it has a humorous twist to it, so can be very enjoyable. It takes practice to read it well!   

I have noticed recently in the newspaper the passing of Frank Reeve, the father of Christopher Reeve.  He was a writer and teacher in his own right. I wonder how many of you remembered that he led some book discussions for us some years back (I think before we reconstructed the Library.) He was a pleasant man to work with, and had a house in the Mount Holly area.  

The Friends want to say thank you to the Trustees who put on a lovely luncheon recently for those who volunteer their time and talent to the Library. It is always a very good meal!  

Here are some dates to be aware of:

August 9 & 23, 7:00 p.m., Klock Room – Whist parties

Every Penny Counts
By: Tammy A. Heffernan

Many thanks go out to the Wallingford Selectboard and the residents of the Wallingford for their assistance in making the Wallingford Rotary’s Coin Drop a huge success. The Rotary collected a total of $1,130 as a result of the generosity of the Wallingford community last month.  

As a new member of the Rotary this was my first coin drop. I have to say the prospect of standing out in the middle of Route 7 at 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning soliciting money was not all that appealing to me, but I committed to put “service above self” when I joined the Rotary a few months before so out I went, donning my bright yellow vest and my bucket, armed with my flyers explaining where the money donated goes. I was warned to watch my feet and watch out for mirrors on vehicles, both of which more veteran Rotary members had evidently come up against with less than favorable outcomes I am guessing given the gravity of the warnings I received. Not knowing what to expect, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.  

It was so nice to see so many familiar faces as I stood there for my 1˝-hour shift on a beautiful Saturday morning. I know and you know that most of you could have easily taken another route and avoided us completely, yet you didn’t. Another example of what makes our community a great place to live. So many of you opened up your windows, your coin holders and even your wallets to make very generous donations to the cause. I stood on tippy-toes to gather donations from tractor trailer drivers passing through, accepted coins from children in back seats, half jogged to get donations from those folks who were in a hurry. I happily accepted donations from so many different folks, some passing through town but most of whom that were friendly faces glad to chat for a moment and share a smile as well as a donation. It was a very heartwarming experience.  

On behalf of myself and the other members of the Wallingford Rotary as well as the Wallingford students who were the recipients of the scholarships that the monies donated go toward, thank you Wallingford .  

host families needed
I am a Regional Director working for CIEE, the non-profit agency that coordinates foreign exchange students.  We are the only Maine-based agency that the State Department has designated to supervise the students when they come into the country.  Our mission is to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world. We are looking for good host families and Local Coordinators to help make sure the students that come here have an enriching stay. 

I am writing because we have a couple students coming to Wallingford for the 2013-2014 high school year, and we need assistance in finding them good homes and families.  We accept all kinds of families - kids, no kids, empty nesters, single parents, and so on. The main requirement is kindness and a willingness to learn about a foreign culture. Families who welcome a student will not only gain a new member, but will also learn about the world, its many values, traditions, languages, food, and more.

Our students have the appropriate visa, medical insurance and pay for all of their own expenses, with the exception of food and utilities. Students are between the ages of 15-18. They arrive in August and are on a 10-month program. A family may act as a welcome family and bring the student into your community for a part of their experience as well.
