The Old Meeting House Celebrates 50th Birthday

 

       

Chicken Controversy? The Old Meeting House? Berlin Pond Drinking Water issue? Tampon Tax? You bet.

If funded, we have a young writers who have these topics covered.  Contributors include students from Montpelier High School, U-32 and East Montpelier Elementary School. In Addition, we will have other features, including poetry and art....read on......

A New Breeze - For Youth, By Youth

We are creating two new "for youth, by youth" four-page journalism projects named The Breeze. One will come out on June 16 as the school year ends, and the second will come out in our August "Back to School" issue of The Bridge. Both will be inserted and mailed in The Bridge — a parent publication that was founded in 1993 as a free, independent and local community newspaper.

Some of the stories have been developed as part of the local school system's Community Based Learning program. Two students have already written the feature stories we will place in The Breeze.

One story, written by Hannah Eschelbach, grade 12, of Barre, is about having the responsibility tending chickens at Montpelier High School. The writer compares the outdoor hands-on experience with her previous school where they did not go outside for science.

Another story, written by 10th grader Nathan Grutchfield of Montpelier, is about the 50th anniversary of a community church in East Montpelier, Vermont. The building itself is even older. From Wikipedia: "Union Meetinghouse is a historic meeting house on Center Road in East Montpelier, Vermont. It was built in 1823 and served as a house of worship for the Methodists and was used for town government meetings." Now, according to their blogspot: "The Old Meeting House is a community church with strong denominational ties to the United Church of Christ." Nathan has strong ties to The Old Meeting House.

As the project moves forward, students will also request content from fellow students, such as book reviews, crossword puzzles, photos and drawings.

Since Nathan is our summer intern as well, this campaign will fund one four page issue of The Breeze at the beginning of the summer - as a culmination of his community based learning - and another at the end as a culmination of his summer internship.

COST:

Each additional 4-page spread costs $1,500 to print, so the total cost for 2 spreads amounts to $3,000.

Additionally, these issues are mailed, so The Breeze will contribute toward the over $900 per mailed issue cost to send free to everyone with an 05602 zipcode (Montpelier, East Montpelier, Calais and Berlin).

We also need to mail out copies of the issues offered as rewards to people outside our area. This could cost up to $100.

We anticipate the cost, including printing, postage and incidentals, to be at least $4,500.00.

The Breeze is a project of a community based newspaper by grownups for grownups called The Bridge.

 

Risiken und Herausforderungen

If we are successfully funded, the risks include illness of one of the key staffers (the person who does layout, or the person who pulls together content). Usually, though, in past experience, these people have worked from hospital beds and home beds on their laptops, so this could be overcome as long as they are living and breathing.

Also, the project depends on technology. We send the final publication digitally to the printer. Rarely, but occasionally, a server goes down. We can always drive to the printer (an hour away) with the finished project on a thumb drive. Not ideal, but doable.

Our previous two Kickstarter projects came together and we fulfilled the rewards, which included cupcakes, Nat's voice on the donor's answering machine and a final party. This time the rewards are primarily more directly related to the published project. This may change as the project goes along and we come up with some interesting new rewards.

The last project of The Breeze, was successfully completed, but the cost was underestimated by over $2,000. So this time I am factoring that in.

    I will write you in as a character in an original horror story. Here is the beginning. What will happen next? What will you do? (I may take liberties and make you an anthropomorphic being - plant, animal, fencepost....) I will consider suggestions, like "I want to be a plant eating snail," for example. A army of snails would be interesting.

    The Plant
    Elsa walked into the tree garden as she often did in early June. Her innocent bare toes enjoyed the cool spikey feeling of grass. The peonies were budding and swelling - about to bloom. The scent of lilac freshened the air.
    Something seemed different, though. She suddenly felt as though she were cheese in a mousetrap to some alien creature. But what hungered for her? It felt close, but how silly. The only living thing near her had suddenly shot up from a single leaf last Saturday into a giant tassel-topped plant reaching 15 feet into the sky.
    The leaves - now over a dozen - reached out like fuzzy green arms. Were they recoiling? Quivering? Would this day be her last?

    Paint and sip (sparkling cider) with Joyce Kahn. Popular local artist Joyce Kahn will unleash the inner artist in you.
    Joyce Kahn is an award-winning artist, who paints colorful, expressionist
    Plein Air (outside, on location) paintings in Vermont, Monhegan Island, Maine, and wherever she is lucky enough to travel to. She made the startling discovery, after years of being in awe of artists, that an art gene is not a requirement for painting. She has taught local "Paint and Sip" groups of 24 and teaches a weekly class of dedicated pastellists. Joyce believes anyone with the desire can make art. Patience and persistence help too.
