The Milton Community Youth Coalition (MCYC) is excited to co-sponsor the 8th annual Milton Activities Fair with the Milton Town School District—offering one stop shopping for families and community members to learn about and/or sign up for the many opportunities offered in Milton. The Milton Activities Fair will include select for-profit businesses as well as community-wide sports, recreation, clubs and services. Last year, the Activities Fair featured over 47 non-profit groups and drew approximately 600 attendees! This exciting, community-wide event helps make busy lives easier for families and organizations alike, and also provides a venue for non-profit groups to network and collaborate with each other.

The Waitsfield United Church of Christ will exhibit the paintings of Vermont artist, Janet McKenzie, during the Vermont Festival of the Arts in August. The exhibit Holiness & the Feminine Spirit is an exhibit of fifteen paintings modeled on two groups (women and people of color) that have been under-represented in traditional Christian imagery. Her painting Jesus of the People will be on view, offering a rare opportunity to see the original painting. Selected First Place Winner of the National Catholic Reporter’s global competition for an image of Christ for the new millennium, the painting invariably generates conversation. Janet’s paintings reflect her hope for greater love among all of us, for seeing with honest eyes, having an open heart, and an open mind. She strives to create art that celebrates our inherent similarities rather than our differences. What lies beyond skin and gender, within the depth of our universal soul is more alike than we’ll ever know.
