Current News & Events / Rock & Roll at Fletcher GrangeTonight
« on: February 26, 2011, 07:43:30 AM »
Time for some cabin fever relief!!!  Put down that snow shovel and put on your dancing shoes!!!

There will be a party at the Fletcher Meeting House (also known as the Fletcher Grange) tonight, February 26.  Everyone is welcome.  Admission is free, but we'll be passing the hat to cover the cost of using the building and to provide a little something for the band.  Bring your favorite beverage.  We are also encouraging (but not requiring) folks to bring an appetizer/snack.

Live music will be provided by No Left Turn.  You probably don't know the name (it's new), but the band includes Fairfax residents Jeff Chapman (lead guitar), David DuPrat (drums), and Scott Russell (vocals and keyboard).  These guys play mostly classic rock & roll, plus some blues and other stuff.  They're pretty good.  The music starts at 7 PM.

Please help pass the word.  Midwinter is a good time to get out of the house and "shake a leg" with the neighbors, and this is a great chance to have a fun night out without driving a long way or spending much money.  Hope to see you there!

(By the way, the band's name is not a political statement, but rather a reference to a steep ledge and an inopportune change in velocity.)

This family is a blessing for our town.  Friendly, hard-working, not a negative comment from any of them about anything (at least in my experience).  Parkash is the epitome of a responsible, community-minded businessman, and those kids are about as polite and well-mannered as any I have met.

Nice to see this article.  To all of the Sainis, thanks for being part of our community.

Mirjo, thanks for your thoughtful comments

Regarding your wondering why the pledge of allegiance has "one nation under god" in it, originally it did not.  During the communist scare and Joseph McCarthy's persecution of anyone who didn't "toe the line" during that period of hysteria, the phrase "under god" was added.  Few politicians dared to state the obvious, that this was fundamentally contrary to the principles upon which this country is based.  That would have been political suicide, because like today, fear was being used to keep the common folk from questioning, and anyone courageous enough to speak the truth was vilified.  It was a time when faith in one particular god was equated with patriotism, and any other belief was condemned as traitorous.  It's too bad we're going through that again now.

There is no freedom of religion without freedom from religion.

We've been seeing him in that same area, 3-4 times in the last couple of weeks.

This Tuesday night music thing is great.  Does anyone know where to find the rest of the summer schedule?

In the late 1960s, we saw a single eagle several summers cruising over the river, assumed it was always the same one.  I hadn't seen one around here for quite a while until last fall, when I took the picture below on the bank of the Lamoille just downstream of the village.  We've also seen an eagle in Fairfax a couple of times this summer.
