EVA's eNewsletter
Volume II, Issue 8
July/August 2011
Thank You EVA's 2011 eNewsletter Sponsor!

Dear EVA supporters,


EVA has had a very busy 2011 so far, and although we still have four months to go, I wanted to share with all of you what I have learned this year.


For many months, a lot of my time has been spent on Enfield's 250th Anniversary celebration which took place the weekend of July 4th. Throughout the project, I worked with many citizens of Enfield, some old acquaintances and some new. They came from all walks of life - art, business, culture, education, and government; and religious and volunteer organizations. They all had one goal: to work together to ensure that our town celebrated its 250th anniversary in style. I think all of you will agree that we met our goal.

There are two words that describes the feeling I had throughout the 250th celebration. First, when I saw the stream of people walking towards Huse Park on Friday evening to attend the Street Dance; and then when I rode in the Mascoma Boat Parade, came through the old Shaker Bridge opening, and saw family, friends and townspeople walking and waving amidst the broken wood and tangled metal of the old bridge. The feeling continued when I walked along the Rail Trail and saw the "Ties that Bind" display on the outside of the old depot and when I went inside to see the "Trains" exhibit; when I read the first-person essays by young and old residents; when I sat in the historic Mary Keane Chapel and watched as Donna and George Butler presented the 250th anniversary banner to the town before I sang patriotic songs with family and friends; when I ate chicken and biscuits, breakfast casseroles, and barbecue chicken in spaces that would not exist without volunteers; when I walked in the parade and recognized family and friends smiling and cheering; and when the Little Folks Day Care handed out cake at the Closing Cermeony. Two words: Very proud! I am so very proud of my town. Where I was born, where I grew up, and where I live and work today!


Thank you all, volunteers and participants alike, for showing that our 250-year-old community has kept and will continue to "keep the good things happening" when we work together.

Update on Jill LaBelle of Canine Cuts & Cuddles


Jill LaBelle, owner of Canine Cuts & Cuddles, and a member of the EVA Business Coffee Group as well a new EVA volunteer, was in a severe motor vehicle accident on July 29th in Norwich, Vermont. In addition to broken bones, Jill suffered a recoverable brain injury. Although she is in a coma, she is showing some signs of response which is promising to her family and friends.


Currently Jill is in DHMC, but soon she may be moved to a rehabilitation facility, possibly, Crotched Mountain. Jill's sister Gaile and brother-in-law Bruce from New York and many of Jill's local friends have been at her bedside since the accident.


Jill's life revolved around her four dogs. The Animal Clinic of Enfield has temporary custody of them but Nicole Carrier and Leslie Clancy have been sharing the care of three of the dogs while Christine Hatarowski cares for the fourth.


Jill also left her lovely home on Route 4. Casey Cantlin and Alison Maldonado are taking care of the house and searching for a tenant for its charming studio apartment.


If you know of anyone looking for an apartment or if you would like to contribute to the fund to help Jill and her dogs, please contact Cantlin Associates, REALTORS at (603) 632-7955.


Let us all hold Jill in our thoughts and prayers.
