Our Town by Thornton Wilder – a staged reading
Stowe Community Church

Stowe Community Church will host a staged reading of “Our Town” on Sept 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the church.

Thornton Wilder’s timeless play “Our Town”, is a split-second glance at the beauty and simplicity in the miraculous detail of a human life. The plot tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. The Stowe Community Church staged reading will feature many local actors, and will be directed by Taryn Noelle.

“Our Town” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC

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.
