Al-Anon at UCC

  • United Church of Craftsbury

The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of
alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve
their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that
changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization,
or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor
opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting
through its own voluntary contributions.

Story Time at CPL

  • Craftsbury Public Library

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

Worship at ECPC

  • East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church

Our commitment is to provide meaningful worship of God, through prayer, strong preaching, study of the Bible and especially through music.  Meaningful worship is an aspect of ECPC held dear by members, some of which have been with us since birth and also one that has drawn new members to ECPC from afar.  We follow a traditional order of worship and generally follow the revised common lectionary for Scripture reading. (A schedule that brings us in contact with all parts of the Scriptures every three years.)

Our service has three main sections: Gathering: which includes praise and confession, which sensitized us to our need for God's love and help.  In the second section we hear the Word through Scripture, and a sermon.  The third section is where we respond to the Word by sharing our joys, concerns, prayers for the world and those around us and offering our gifts to God.  Hymns are sung at the opening of the service, after the sermons and at the closing of the service.  Music is organ and occasionally piano.  Our choir sings an Anthem that ties into the theme of the day.

Community Rowing at COC

  • Craftsbury Outdoor Center

<- Go Back to Craftsbury Calendar of Events

The Hosmer Community Rowing Club (CommRow) will start getting their blades wet May 16 at 4:30. Like recent years, CommRowers will congregate at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center's Boathouse on Big Hosmer Pond and resume the same Monday thru Wednesday schedule as last year. Please bear in mind these sessions will run concurrent with Craftsbury Sculling Camp's afternoon free row.

As in previous years, we strongly encourage people of all levels to join CommRow - though not necessarily all sessions. Newcomers of any level are invited to join us on Tuesday, May 31, when we can be prepared to provide additional instruction. Moving forward from that start date, people with less than a year of experience should attend the Wednesday session. Meanwhile, intermediate and advanced scullers may attend any or all of the three weekly sessions. Beginners will be able to scull on Tuesdays or Wednesdays by special arrangement only.

2017 Schedule

Monday - 4:30-5:30pm (Experienced Rowers Only)
Tuesday - 4:30-5:30pm (Experienced Rowers Only)
Wednesday - 4:30-6:00pm 

We ask that all CommRow participants complete a waiver (parents will have to do this for those under 18), and be certain their Outdoor Center membership is current. As a reminder, membership for Craftsbury and Albany residents is complimentary, but we ask that you complete the paperwork. Club sessions are covered by a program fee of $150/person, or if you're a beginner attending Wednesdays only, a program fee of $50/person. Center members can come try their first three sessions FREE. If you elect to continue, please make payment of your fee prior to the next session.

Scullers will learn primarily in the single. A participant's first session in the program will feature a flip and recovery experience, so bring a bathing suit on Day One! After instruction, the flip experience gives you the chance to demonstrate you can get back into a boat or swim it to shore in the event of capsize.

Before your first session, we ask that you first stop at the office to complete a waiver if you haven't downloaded and completed one this year. Please contact the Center at 802-586-7767 or sculling@craftsbury.com for more information.

Story Time at CPL

  • Craftsbury Public Library

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

Worship at ECPC

  • East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church

Our commitment is to provide meaningful worship of God, through prayer, strong preaching, study of the Bible and especially through music.  Meaningful worship is an aspect of ECPC held dear by members, some of which have been with us since birth and also one that has drawn new members to ECPC from afar.  We follow a traditional order of worship and generally follow the revised common lectionary for Scripture reading. (A schedule that brings us in contact with all parts of the Scriptures every three years.)

Our service has three main sections: Gathering: which includes praise and confession, which sensitized us to our need for God's love and help.  In the second section we hear the Word through Scripture, and a sermon.  The third section is where we respond to the Word by sharing our joys, concerns, prayers for the world and those around us and offering our gifts to God.  Hymns are sung at the opening of the service, after the sermons and at the closing of the service.  Music is organ and occasionally piano.  Our choir sings an Anthem that ties into the theme of the day.

Worship at ECPC

  • East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church

Our commitment is to provide meaningful worship of God, through prayer, strong preaching, study of the Bible and especially through music.  Meaningful worship is an aspect of ECPC held dear by members, some of which have been with us since birth and also one that has drawn new members to ECPC from afar.  We follow a traditional order of worship and generally follow the revised common lectionary for Scripture reading. (A schedule that brings us in contact with all parts of the Scriptures every three years.)

Our service has three main sections: Gathering: which includes praise and confession, which sensitized us to our need for God's love and help.  In the second section we hear the Word through Scripture, and a sermon.  The third section is where we respond to the Word by sharing our joys, concerns, prayers for the world and those around us and offering our gifts to God.  Hymns are sung at the opening of the service, after the sermons and at the closing of the service.  Music is organ and occasionally piano.  Our choir sings an Anthem that ties into the theme of the day.

Community Rowing at COC

  • Craftsbury Outdoor Center

<- Go Back to Craftsbury Calendar of Events

The Hosmer Community Rowing Club (CommRow) will start getting their blades wet May 16 at 4:30. Like recent years, CommRowers will congregate at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center's Boathouse on Big Hosmer Pond and resume the same Monday thru Wednesday schedule as last year. Please bear in mind these sessions will run concurrent with Craftsbury Sculling Camp's afternoon free row.

As in previous years, we strongly encourage people of all levels to join CommRow - though not necessarily all sessions. Newcomers of any level are invited to join us on Tuesday, May 31, when we can be prepared to provide additional instruction. Moving forward from that start date, people with less than a year of experience should attend the Wednesday session. Meanwhile, intermediate and advanced scullers may attend any or all of the three weekly sessions. Beginners will be able to scull on Tuesdays or Wednesdays by special arrangement only.

2017 Schedule

Monday - 4:30-5:30pm (Experienced Rowers Only)
Tuesday - 4:30-5:30pm (Experienced Rowers Only)
Wednesday - 4:30-6:00pm 

We ask that all CommRow participants complete a waiver (parents will have to do this for those under 18), and be certain their Outdoor Center membership is current. As a reminder, membership for Craftsbury and Albany residents is complimentary, but we ask that you complete the paperwork. Club sessions are covered by a program fee of $150/person, or if you're a beginner attending Wednesdays only, a program fee of $50/person. Center members can come try their first three sessions FREE. If you elect to continue, please make payment of your fee prior to the next session.

Scullers will learn primarily in the single. A participant's first session in the program will feature a flip and recovery experience, so bring a bathing suit on Day One! After instruction, the flip experience gives you the chance to demonstrate you can get back into a boat or swim it to shore in the event of capsize.

Before your first session, we ask that you first stop at the office to complete a
