Black History Month
Description: 

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Imagine a school where the cool kids are the chess team. Welcome to I.S. 318. “Brooklyn Castle” tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country. The film follows the challenges these kids face in their personal lives — and on the chessboard — and is as much about the sting of their losses as it is about anticipation of their victories. By Katie Dellamaggiore.

This event is free and open to the public.

Shooting Ranges
Body: 

It wasn't that long ago that sighting in your rifle or practicing you wing shooting skills was as simple as heading to your back yard or the nearest sand pit. For much of Vermont those days are over. Because of this the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is expanding their efforts to provide hunters and shooting sport enthusiasts with safe and environmentally responsible places to shoot.
