HOLIDAY Happenings

Vermont Lights The Way Relaunched
Governor Phil Scott is again encouraging Vermonters to help show Vermont Lights the Way , an effort to literally brighten communities and neighborhoods around the state by decorating homes , businesses , buildings or other creative ideas to help celebrate the holidays during the pandemic .
“ When we started this initiative last year , it was one of the only ways for us to connect with our neighbors and communities during the holidays . I ’ m very grateful that we have come so far this year thanks to vaccines , and we can continue this tradition with hope and optimism before us ,” said Governor Scott . “ Time and time again , Vermonters show why we ’ re known for strong , close-knit communities and a willingness to step up to help one another . Vermont truly does light the way and there is no better time of year to brighten up our state for all to enjoy .”
In addition to decorating , Vermonters should share pictures of their displays - or favorites from around the community - on social media using the hashtag # VTLightsTheWay . This will allow those who are unable to tour the lights to take part in the celebration , and photos will be shared through the Governor ’ s channels and at his weekly press conferences .
The Governor is also asking Vermonters to help him recognize people for their acts of kindness and service by nominating them for a Rays of Kindness recognition . Rays of Kindness recognizes Vermonters for small acts of service and goodwill . Nominations can be submitted at governor . vermont . gov / rays-of-kindness . Nominees will receive a recognition certificate , and some will be featured at the Governor ’ s weekly press conferences or on his social media channels .
“ Seeing all the lights around the state last year had such a positive impact , lifting the spirits of many . As we look toward an even brighter future , this continues to be a great way to spread holiday cheer , goodwill and community spirit ,” said Governor Scott .
Christmas Bird Count

Londonderry , Bondville and Rawsonville , as well as Stratton , Bromley , and Magic Ski areas . If you live in this area and feed the birds , please consider making your birds count for history and science .
