ADA Bathroom Grand Opening a HUGE Success! #WFLDProctorLib #WeathersfieldVT #VT #library #Ascutney

Thursday May 26, 2016
Weathersfield Proctor Library

Our library has a new ADA Accessible Bathroom! In case you missed it, last night the Friends of Proctor Library and the Library Trustees hosted a Toilet Paper Cutting and Grand Flushing!

About 45 people attended a free picnic before the opening ceremony complete with hot dogs, pizza and sub sandwiches.

After the feast, folks moved to the side of the building where Board Chair Rick Bates (far left) welcomed everyone. He thanked folks for their patience during the construction and especially thanked All Seasons Construction from Springfield Vt. for their excellent work. Architect Ralph Nimtz from NBF Architects in Rutland Vt. was also on handle for the celebration. Former Board Chair Ernie Shand (far right) introduced Library Director Mark Richardson.  Keegan and Kate Murphy held the toilet paper ribbon.

A very special cake was created by The Little Cake Shoppe at Jennyridge Farm in Canaan NH and donated by Amy Beth and Ron Main.
A grand time was had by all.

We are so excited to announce this event at our Library. It should be fun for all ages. So mark you calendar form Saturday May 28!

From AUNE website:
AUNE + TCL Alliance In 2015 Antioch University New England (AUNE) announced a collaboration with The Caterpillar Lab (TCL), a nonprofit program that features native New England caterpillars in educational programs, research initiatives, photography, and film projects.

The alliance between AUNE and TCL recognizes our shared goals to develop and deliver educational and scientific programming. AUNE serves as a fiscal agent and provides grant management and event promotion support. The Caterpillar Lab supports AUNE’s scientific and educational work through presentations, demonstrations, and by promoting citizen science in the community. Jaffe, who was appointed as a member of AUNE’s research faculty, supervises AUNE graduate students through an internship program at TCL.

About The Caterpillar Lab
The The Caterpillar Lab exhibit includes film, photography and more than 800 live caterpillars. When the caterpillars become moths, butterflies, or winged insects, Sam and his staff return them to their habitat.

Fun for All Ages
Bring the Whole Family!
