>"We've been very fortunate to have been able to support hundreds of 
>community preservation and revitalization efforts throughout our 25 year 
>history.  Donors have been extremely generous and have made our work 
>possible.  But most importantly, this work couldn't be done without people 
>at the community level who have the passion and commitment to save and use 
>great old buildings.  This is really a celebration of an enormous volume 
>of preservation work that has been done by volunteers and community-based 
>organizations."
>Paul Bruhn, Executive Director of Preservation Trust of Vermont.

>over one hundred images of gathering places in communities around Vermont, 
>including village stores, post offices, local restaurants, libraries, 
>churches, art centers, community halls and Main Streets. The subject of 
>this book is a great fit for Preservation Trust of Vermont, since many of 
>these places have been directly supported over the years with the Field 
>Service Program, Sincerbeaux Grants, Village Store Program and the 
>Preservation Grants. Mr. Miller will be present all afternoon for a book 
>signing of Gathering Places; his other books, Vermont People and Vermont

>learn while you look and read carefully, following clues and earning

>wilderness and ecosystem management of parks while stressing that all 
>parks are cultural at their roots; successfully battled against efforts to

>sector in support of the parks; and upheld and renewed the 
>Administration's commitment to enhance the careers of the professionals of 
>the Service.

>music which has become popular in today's contra dance movement. The Nips
