Support Your Local Libraries at the Horse Show
The public is encouraged to come out and enjoy the Vermont Summer Festival’s Horse Show competitions at the Harold Beebe Farm on Route 7 in East Dorset, Vt. They take place weekly on Wednesdays, through Sunday, August 10. When you do, you’ll be showing your support for local libraries at the same time – the spectator gate at the Vermont Summer Festival is once again staffed by community volunteers, with admission to the show going entirely towards supporting area libraries and community literacy initiatives.
The fundraising effort is being spearheaded by the Mark Skinner/Manchester Community Library, which is in the midst of building its new 21st-century library, meant to be a center for education and enrichment and a hub for the discovery and delivery of information for people of all ages in the Northshire.
Also volunteering, and sharing in the proceeds from gate admissions, will be representatives
from the following area libraries: the Martha Canfield Memorial Library in Arlington, the Winhall Memorial Library, the South Londonderry Free Library, the Dorset Village Public Library, the Rupert Kittay Public Library in Rupert, the Pawlet Public Library and the Wilder Memorial Library in Weston.
Berkshire Bank employees will also be volunteering at the gate to show their support of the
irreplaceable services that our libraries and the people who staff them provide to the users in our communities.
