MIDDLEBURY — Women’s health care specialist Linda Andrews will give a talk titled “Establishing a National Cervical Cancer Screening Program in Tanzania” on Monday, Dec. 7, from 7-9 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room at Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury.
BRISTOL — Ashley Wolff, a local children’s book author and illustrator who just resettled to her home county from California, donated an original gouache painting of Baby Bear, the star of her children’s books “Baby Bear Counts One” and “Baby Bear Sees Blue,” to be raffled off on Dec. 5 by Addison County Readers, the providers of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
The distinctively feline tracks through the snow in our woods last winter intrigued me. They would follow the narrow ski trail a ways, then meander into the trees or, sometimes, seem to disappear altogether.

STARKSBORO — A memory tree illumination is held each year in Starksboro on the eve of the winter solstice. This year the event will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 22, at 7 p.m. The illumination ceremony includes music, reading of honorees’ names and the lighting of the “memory” trees in front of the Starksboro Baptist Church at 2806 VT Route 116.

CHARLOTTE — The Vermont Agency of Transportation announced last week that it will close the state-operated Charlotte park-and-ride lot located on Ferry Road at the train station effective Nov. 30. Officials said the 35-space lot simply isn’t being used enough to warrant their efforts to maintain it for year-round access.
MIDDLEBURY — Some people really love the wines sold at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. Others are less enthusiastic. So the crew at Town Hall Theater decided to let the people decide, resulting in a delightful event on Dec. 6, The Wine Audition and Cheddar Challenge.
“We’re going to stock the bar in the same way we’d cast a play,” says THT executive director Douglas Anderson. “You can’t get in without an audition.”
