Thoughts of Veterans

By Alex Rose

I was born and raised in the United Kingdom and moved to America when I was 15 (my mother was born here). …The [British and American] cultures are very similar in a lot of ways (I didn’t have to learn a new language for one), however, we do have some different traditions. Tomorrow … marks Veterans Day in the US, and I wanted to share with you one in particular that I grew up with.

….We call it Remembrance Day,…. the day that the nation ‘officially’ mourns the war dead, prayers are said, wreaths are laid and the Queen leads the nation in a thought about what the Military’s sacrifice means for us all. On the 11th itself, we, as a nation stop for two minutes of silence at precisely 11 AM. This marks the moment that the guns stopped firing and that World War One ended.

But that isn’t the tradition I wanted to tell you about.

In the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, you start to see people wearing paper poppies on their jackets. …. You buy them from volunteers who — like the Salvation Army before Christmas — stand on street corners and outside stores and take donations. There isn’t an official price, you just give what you can but, generally, people are pretty generous. The money goes to helping wounded veterans and the families of those who have lost their lives fighting for the country.

It’s an old tradition, dating all the way back to right after World War One. According to legend at least, on the battlefields of Paschendale and the Somme — where hundreds of thousands of soldiers were killed — the first flowers to grow in the bomb-blasted ground were poppies.

The paper flowers themselves were cleverly designed so that they could be assembled by veterans who had lost arms in the fighting. Despite their disabilities, it was decreed that these men would always have at least a small job.

As it gets closer and closer to the 11th, …. It’s rare to see anyone without a poppy. ….The poppies are sacred.

I’ve always liked this tradition because of the unspoken acknowledgement that is passed to members of the armed forces every time they see a poppy. ….

Americans do a fantastic job of recognizing the sacrifices that the military makes. …. whatever we do for the veterans, we could always do a little bit more. So, not just tomorrow, but every day, in whatever way you can, take a moment to try and repay the debt that we all have for sacrifices the military has made for us. D
https://www.foleyservices.com/news/thoughts-for-veterans-day/
The U.S. holiday, Armistice Day, was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day, a U.S. holiday in May which honors those who died while in military service.

Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans who have served, protected and sacrificed for us and for our country.

Joan “Bunny” Libby

( November 25, 1943 – October 26, 2018 )
JOAN BARBARA WAGENER LIBBY (BUNNY)

Bunny was born in Brooklyn, NY on Nov. 25, 1943 to Henry Louis Wagener, MD and Joan Blackburn Barkell Wagener. Bunny was the only child of immigrant parents, her Dad from Germany in 1885 and her mother from England in 1916.

Bunny passed away on October 26, 2018 at Copley Hospital surrounded by her family after a three & one half year battle with a non-treatable cancer.

Bunny attended The Berkeley Institute in Brooklyn from Pre-School to her high school graduation in 1961. She then attended the University of Vermont, class of 1965, graduating with a BS in Nursing.

Bunny worked 45 years as a Nurse. First in the Emergency Department at Georgetown Hospital in Washington, DC and finally at Copley Hospital Emergency Department in Morrisville, Vt. She retired from Copley Hospital in 2010. While in DC she met and married Kenneth W. Libby who was the love of her life and her best friend. Together they had three wonderful children, Kristie Noelle Libby Becker, Derek Ryan Libby and Keely Michelle Libby Tamer.

During her younger years Bunny was known as a very good athlete in many sports, a tap dancer, a member of the Junior Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall & a piano player. After marriage she pursued other interests including skiing, golf & tennis.

Bunny was a founding member of the Stowe Rescue Squad in 1975 and active for 10 years. She spent many years on the Stowe Recreation Committee from 1980 to 1997. During that time she ran the summer swim program in the icy, cold Stowe Center pool. Many of her students and teaching aides have mentioned the temperature of that water in various Facebook posts since her death. Bunny was also a member of the Northern Vermont Chapter of the American Red Cross through which she taught multiple classes plus serving on their Board of Directors from 1982-1984.

She was an Adjunct Professor of Health Science Department at Johnson State College for 20 years teaching Emergency Management of Sports Injuries. She also ran the Health Center on the campus of Johnson State from 1990-2001. She was a part-time ski patrol nurse for the Mt. Mansfield from 1979-1990. In the late 90’s Bunny went back to school and received an Associate Degree as a legal nurse consultant and was a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) from 2000 to 2010. In 2007 Bunny obtained her Vermont Real Estate license. She worked part-time in her husband’s business and was a self-described rainmaker for the office; she knew everyone and she made close friends for life with so many people around Lamoille County.

Bunny was a forever member of St. John’s in the Mountain Episcopal Church. She taught Sunday School from 1973 to 1979, was on the Vestry from 1976-1978 and again 2010-2012. She served the Church as Chairperson of the Building & Grounds Committee from 2009-2015. She was responsible for the landscaping of the grounds of St. John’s after it was rebuilt in 2007 and along with her 2 friends, Mary Ann Raymond & Meg Lang; they have maintained the gardens since.

Bunny was a dedicated contributor to the welfare of the animals at the North Country Animal League (NCAL) and was responsible, along with Ken, for all the adopted dogs receiving a fleece winter coat. For many years Bunny also was the source of much of the funding for the Spay/Neuter Fund for NCAL.

In addition to her husband, Ken, and her children, Kristie, Derek & Keely, she is survived by her daughter’s husbands, Richard Becker and Christopher Tamer. Also, she is survived by 7 fantastic grandchildren, Kaitlyn E. Becker, Kiersten N. Becker, Emma N. Tamer, Christopher R. Tamer, Abigail G. Tamer, Nathan R. Libby & Andrew J. Libby. Nothing pleased Bunny more than attending a sporting event in which one of these grandchildren was participating. Bunny & Ken were frequent flyers attending high school or college field hockey, ice hockey, baseball, lacrosse or soccer games all over the country. Above all Bunny was dedicated to her family and was the glue that held it together at times. She learned to text late in life and spent a crazy amount of time texting with her grandkids.

There will be a Celebration of Bunny’s life at the Stoweflake Resort & Spa on Saturday, December 22, 2018 beginning at noon. In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial gift to NCAL, Spay/Neuter Fund, 16 Mountain View Meadow Road, Morrisville, Vt. 05661.

Autumn at St. John’s

 

Sunday, October 21, 6 p.m. at JCOGS

 

Author Rick Winston discusses his new book Red Scare in the Green Mountains: VT in the Mccarthy Era 1946-1960

 

What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the “Red Scare” swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out.

 

Rick Winston explores some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural “rock-ribbed Republican” state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time. Now, as our country again experiences a political atmosphere charged with intolerance, condemnation, and widespread falsehoods, this book could not be more timely.

 

Free and open to the public, light refreshments served.

Help Your Neighbors Who Lost Food from the Autumn 2017 Storm

The wind storm and power outages have put many community members already struggling to put food on the table in an extremely difficult situation. As a result, many Vermonters are choosing between replacing the contents of their refrigerator or putting gas in their car or fuel in their home. Or even worse, these families are going without. 

OPERATION RESTOCK is a partnership effort of Capstone Community Action, the Vermont Foodbank, and Mayor Thom and Karen Lauzon to provide emergency food assistance. We ask the community to help their neighbors in need by making a donation at fuelyourneighbors.org, or sending a gift to Capstone Community Action, attn.: Operation Restock, 20 Gable Place, Barre, VT 05641.
