Barre Opera House
The Second Century Campaign
There's Still Time to Sponsor A Seat!
When the Covid-19 virus hit in March, The Barre Opera House's regular programming and, consequently, all its revenue streams came to a screeching halt. So, too, did fundraising their capital campaign, which was to be completed by April 2021, in order to begin work in the summer. Projects included repainting the theater, replacing antiquated rigging system and installing new seating. Despite having to raise the remaining third of the $1 million needed, the Opera House got down to business and began project work in early spring of last year. They are now at 90% of their campaign fundraising goal and, at this point, are relying on the generosity of their patrons - folks like you who value their shows and use the theater - to carry them to the finish line. We hope you will help! Donors who contribute $350+ will have the opportunity to have their names or the name of another designee engraved on a brass plaque on one of their new seats! Click here for more information and to make your donations today!

Share Your Thoughts on the Future of Vermont
The challenges facing Vermont call on us to unite to build a better future. The Vermont Council on Rural Development, a neutral facilitator of public process, is excited to share the first draft of the Vermont Proposition: an effort to set non-partisan priorities for statewide action. The Proposition draft, based on input from thousands of Vermonters, shares a set of ideas to drive common action and advance a successful future for our communities, environment and economy. 
Now, VCRD is looking to you to help strengthen the Proposition. What’s missing? What could be improved? What do we need to do to be successful for the next generation? To learn more about the initiative, see the current draft, and share your thoughts, visit www.futureofvermont.org.
