Show and Tell -- Now We Can All Remember

This is the full version of our Memorial Walk Video. I tried to make it informative, inspiriational, and affirming. It is 20 minutes, so grab a glass of whatever's nearest and settle in. Or, if you can't watch the whole thing now -- at least try to watch the first and last, especially if your baby's name was read.

PLEASE...feel free to forward and share at will. As soon as I figure out how to get the video to sit on the sidebar permanently then that is where it will be! But, for now I have posted the media link to the most recent newspaper article about SHARE Southern Vermont and our walk.

Show and Tell: The One You Thought Might Never Happen!

The memory walk was a month ago...

After: sifting through two hours of video footage, splicing in just the right still shots, editing and re-editing titles, overlays, music, and I have completely lost track of how many hours in the SAPA editing room trying to get my PC and their army of Mac's to play nice, THE TV-READY VIDEO IS DONE!

I hold it here in my lap as I type. A pretty little disk with sleek case and a color printed label. See?


Pretty, yes? Oh, and did you see the 'produced by' line?? Heck yeah baby, I produced my first movie!

But, yeah- you knew that was coming, right? But, it won't transfer to my desktop. It refuses to be captured into my video files. Hence (she winces as she prepares to type...) I cannot show the 21 minute masterpiece to you...yet.

So, instead I offer up this 4 min montage of still photos, peppered with some titles and calming background music as an appetizer of what is to come. Enjoy.

She Said We Would

I am thrilled to announce that Share Southern Vermont, Inc. is officially a 501 (c) 3, not-for-profit corporation!

How exactly did it become official, you ask?

After a 28 page application, at least that many pages of additional requested information, projected budgets for the next three years, percentage breakdown of donation intake vs. costs, two conversations with our IRS contact person and countless other details, we recieved:

- A 2 page letter and this,

No small booklet has ever looked sweeter. I can even imagine myself curling up into the nook of the couch with a steaming cup of tea, and....the compliance guide. Sweet, huh?

Did I ever have any doubts? Nah, well - maybe, but deep down I always believed because She said we could.

And, we did.
