VT Attorney General Warns Vermonters About Facebook Scam: Officials say the scammer gains access to an a person's Facebook account and then sends a message to the "friends" saying their names are on the U.S. Treasury Department's unclaimed funds list. The message has an email address and phone number to call. When contacted, the scammer asks the consumer to wire money to pay for taxes and fees to get the cash. The attorney general says the scammer has accessed at least one Vermont legislator's Facebook account and contacted the "friends." The office says any Facebook message about unclaimed funds is a scam. It says the Vermont Treasurer's Office has an unclaimed property program but does not send Facebook messages, emails or letters to consumers. WCAX
Facebook has been a great way for people to reconnect and there are many discussions taking place on the Cavendish VT Facebook page. Some people have been posting photographs from their family albums as well as pictures they took when they were growing up. Unfortunately, not everyone is on-line and many would love to see and share their own photographs and stories.
The Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) Annual Meeting will take place on Feb. 23 (Sunday), 5 pm at the Cavendish Town Elementary School in Proctorsville. There will be a pot luck supper starting at 5 pm, followed by a short business meeting. At approximately 6 pm we will be showing the film Freedom and Unity: The Vermont Movie- Part 1 A Very New Idea Part One explores the roots from which the future state of Vermont grew. Samuel de Champlain steps into a canoe, paving the way for Yankee immersion into native culture. We look at early settlement, native peoples’ resistance, and the little-known history of African American settlers. Pioneer rebel Ethan Allen leads the struggle for independence, resulting in Vermont’s radical constitution- the first to outlaw slavery. Finally, Vermont’s heroic role in the Civil War reminds us that, despite occasional missteps, Freedom & Unity— Vermont’s state motto—continues to chart the state’s course into the present. In the event of snow, the meeting will be rescheduled. For more information 802-226-7807 or email@example.com

The homegrown, eclectic and gloriously edgy Rusty Belle band will usher in a big change in the Raise the Roof Concert Series when its live music moves from Sunday afternoons to Saturday nights. The group is known for its genre-busting mix of folk-pop-rock-country-blues music that fills the seats in venues large and small across the country. On Saturday February 15 at 7:00 p.m. Rusty Belle will pack tiny Gethsemane Church in Proctorsville and raise the roof with their musical artistry and sparkling wit. Brother and sister Matt and Kate Lorenz return to their hometown for this special concert, joined by Zak Trojano. Guitar, percussion and instruments crafted from found materials provide the energy that moves lead singer Kate Lorenz's dusky voice through music filled with humor, soul, whimsy and originality that keeps on surprising. The price of $10.00 will buy you a seat and the great feeling that comes with supporting high quality live music in an intimate venue. Learn more about Rusty Belle at www.rustybelle.com and "like" the concert series on Facebook at Raise the Roof Concert Series. Put it on your calendar--this is a concert not to be missed!
