Last year's event celebrated ACCT's 25th anniversary and raised over $3,000 toward our fundraising goal.
ACCT held a Special Meeting of the Membership on June 1 to begin working on new bylaws for the organization. ACCT was originally established as a membership organization, and many parts of the bylaws require a membership vote to make changes or carry out certain activities. Anyone who attended the Special Meeting was eligible to become a member, as ACCT has not maintained an active membership in recent years. The warned agenda items voted on include 1) establishing the membership as attendees of the meeting, 2) authorizing the Board proactively to amend the bylaws, and 3) removing the requirement for a membership vote in order for ACCT to sell or transfer land, except in cases where members would be directly affected by the sale (e.g. residents of a mobile home park). The full minutes are posted below.
Foundations are starting to go up on McKnight Lane! This week, work will begin on a sewer main upgrade along Maple St Extension as well.

SASH program focuses on "3/4/50"
Did you know that just three behaviors can lead to the four conditions that account for 50% of all deaths in Vermont? The "3/4/50" campaign through the Vermont Department of Heath aims to draw attention to this startling fact and raise awareness about three behavioral changes people can make to prevent diseases and reduce mortality.
The SASH Program is spreading the word about 3/4/50 and helping seniors to implement these behaviors that can promote their health--for example by providing activities like Bone Builders and walking groups that increase physical activity, helping seniors access healthy meals, and supporting smoking cessation.
