‘Getting Evernote Off the Ground’ @ VT
Nov 16 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

November 16, 2019
Have you collected lots of material in your genealogical journey?  Is everything stuffed in a file that you hope to organize someday?  If your collection is not organized, and you can’t find what you want, then it’s Evernote to the rescue.  Patti and Dick Malone will show you how they have worked with Evernote to keep track of their research results so that information can be located in seconds. Evernote is very customizable, so there is no “right” way to set it up. You will see at least 2 different ways to organize it, how to get information into this organization and how to search and locate what you are looking for efficiently. Classes at the Vermont Genealogy Library are $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Classes run from 10:30 to noon.  The library is located on Hegeman Ave, Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester.  Parking and entrance are across from the State Police. Visit our website vtgenlib.org or call 802-350-1333 for more details.

Vermont Interfaith Action invites you to “Ending Homelessness in Washington County: Community-Building Dinner and Progress Report” on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church (16 Barre Street, Montpelier). We will begin with dinner at 5:00 p.m., then from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., an Action featuring VIA congregation members and guests from the Good Samaritan Haven holding elected officials accountable for previous promises made, and lastly, have some guided community building conversations from 6:30 to 7:00 pm. Please register here.

VIA clergy and leaders envision ending homelessness in Washington County by 2020. For the last three years since they presented that vision, they have worked closely with allied housing organizations, state agencies, and lawmakers. Progress toward this goal has been made. Join us as we build relationships with our neighbors who are still challenged to find safe, decent, affordable housing, and as we make the final push toward eradicating homelessness.
