A World Where Aging Is Honored

The Brevity Thing
Thanks to all who came out to see "Age Out Loud" at the Barre Opera House to benefit Central Vermont Council on Aging. We had an even bigger audience than last year as word about this amazing show spreads!

Say It Forward provided an incredible evening of laughter, great music, and fun all around the theme of aging and families. We can't thank our storytellers and musicians enough for their immense talent and hard work for human services organizations such as CVCOA.

Thanks to Dan Casey, Cindy Campos, and the staff of the Barre Opera House for their generosity and support. Thanks to our major sponsors (see below) and our many volunteers!!

CVCOA Says Goodbye to 20 year Board Member Gertrude Hodge

It's hard to imagine CVCOA without Gertrude Hodge, who died on April 20, 2018 while still serving on our Board. Gertrude served on our Board for 20 years, including as a past president. She also functioned as our informal legislative watchdog at the statehouse to safeguard aging services and her many other volunteer causes. Gertrude died on her ninety-ninth birthday which was also her wedding anniversary. CVCOA will greatly miss her intellect, advocacy and encouragement.
