And, just in case you have always been curious about the Vermont International Film Festival, here you are:
The Vermont International Film Festival (VTIFF) is Vermont’s longest running film festival and this year marks its 27th edition.
The festival is best known for featuring groundbreaking and independent films from around the world, with a special focus on films that, not only entertain, but also seek to broaden our views of the world. The festival is also the home of the Vermont Filmmaker’s Showcase, the largest juried selection of Vermont-made films in the state.
The North Country Union High School VISUAL ARTS Department is asking you to help support our enrichment and scholarship program by shopping online using our Virtual Shopping Mall portal at http://www.igive.com/uZPUjAk. It’s free for you, free for us and you pay the same (or less ! ) for your items than you would by going directly to the stores’ websites. There is a treasure-trove of coupons, sales and free shipping using the iGive Button which you can easily download.
While we would love to have your support, we encourage everyone to first shop locally for what you need, especially this Holiday Season. But if you can’t find it locally and like the convenience of shopping online, Please visit http://www.igive.com/uZPUjAK and help support our NCUHS Visual Arts cause. It’s fast, convenient and when you shop any of the over 1,300 participating online stores through the iGive portal, a portion of each purchase goes directly to our fundraising efforts in the form of a monthly donation check.
Thanks for all of the support you have given us in the past and I hope you’ll give their shopping mall a try. If you have any questions please feel free to call Pat Sanders at 802-988-4193.http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
I decided this morning to tout my home State by encouraging you to visit http://littleusatrips.org/2013/10/18/grand-rounds-national-scenic-byway/ This little BLOG is written by my sister (and sometimes her husband). This is the time of year when many of you will be traveling to your winter home. And, this is how the Little USA Trips got started. I love my Minnesota and its highways, byways, Land of a Thousand lakes and parks. Treasure the memories of the special places you love in YOUR State.http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com

I hope that you will take some time to visit some of the fine craftsmen who open their homes this Open Studio Weekend (October 5 and 6), http://www.vermontcrafts.com/OSW/maps-directions.html to all of you who are wandering Vermont, enjoying the colors of our foliage. Jennifer Ranz (member of Wooden Horse Arts Guild) will be at home in her absolutely wonderful RANZ BARN, showing off her pottery, jewelry and Watercolors. And, if you’re lucky, you will be able to watch Jennifer at work at her pottery wheel. I visited Jennifer recently and was mesmerized at the “miracle” of pottery (especially with a “master” making it!) Here is Jennifer’s website…..Please visit her on this weekend! http://www.jenniferranz.com/http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
