COMMUNITY NEWS:

Town Organizations:
Belong to One? Tell Us about It
The Signpost would like to hear about the East Montpelier
organizations you belong to. In the September/October
issue we plan to feature the many organizations which
serve the community and provide us with fun, learning,
fellowship, and service. We have groups for kids,
seniors, and everyone in between. Please write approximately
300 words about an organization you are part of,
and let us know what your organization does and how others
in town may participate. Send it to signpostbcp@hotmail.
com by August 1 or call Barbara at 223-6934 to find
another way to get it to her.


Tell Your Story…or Someone Else’s
Do you have an idea for a story or an article for the
Signpost? We are delighted to welcome new writers as
part of our mission to foster a sense of community
in East Montpelier. Every person, every homestead,
every pasture has a story. We want to hear them all.
Fortunately, we can offer quite a bit of writing support
and technical advice for newbies. Any one of our volunteer
staff editors can help you take your idea through
drafts and revisions before you submit it for consideration
to our editorial board. Writing and revising can be
fun, challenging, and creative. Why not join us? Let us
know what you’d like to write about. Start by sending
your ideas to Signpost Coordinator Barbara Ploof at
signpostbcp@hotmail.com.


Unclaimed Property and Monies
Please check the Vt State Treasurer's website http://www.vermonttreasurer.gov/ for your name! There are quite a few East Montpelier Residents on the list. Check it out!

Following the positive bond issue vote in November, the EMES school board is actively arranging for this complex project. Please stay informed about this important school project at http://emesfacilities.blogspot.com/


The Select Board has signed E Montpelier up for Front Porch Forum, a Vermont based community bulletin board for posting events, requests, items for sale, neighborhood news, etc. Check it out here: http://frontporchforum.com/ . It's brand new for our town. The Signpost will continue to provide this page for town notices and community events as well, since the 2 websites are quite different. Make sure to use your East Montpelier town address when signing up for Front Porch Forum, rather than your mailing address town.


The Food Shelf at the Old Brick Church is open to residents of East Montpelier and Calais in need on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month from 4-7 p.m. Donations, particularly canned goods, soup, pasta sauce, and tuna, are always welcome, as well as dry goods and paper products. Food can be dropped off at the church from 9-5 weekdays. There will also be a designated box at Dudley's for drop-off.
Financial donations will be put towards purchases from the Vermont Foodbank. To volunteer and for more info call 223-1232.


The East Montpelier Revolving Loan Fun has been resurrected! If you have ideas for the use of the Revolving Loan Fund, or would like to be included in this committee, please contact Dave Coburn by email at: dave. coburn@comcast.net or call 223-6886. The EMRLF has a new page on this site here.
