1️⃣ Diana Capozzi maneuvers a chair into her car in White River Junction, #VT, on Tuesday. She got the chair from a friend who planned to donate it to the Listen Community Services thrift store. “I thought, ‘That would be perfect for my porch, I just have to figure out how to get it into my car,’ ” Capozzi said. “I’m just being #thrifty.” 2️⃣ Clyde Brown repairs the cover to his mechanically extendable #mailbox in South Royalton, Vt., on Wednesday. The cover blew off the electric drill powered mechanism the previous evening. Brown created the device, which he powers on timers from inside his house, in 1991, so that he can pull the box in out of range of #snow plows and does not have to shovel snow away from around the box. ⏹ More #vnewsuv staff photography at www.vnews.com/photos.

A very sweet pair of museum guests made cookies for the Montshire after their pipes burst

“I am sorry that the pipe burst. Anyway, here are some cookies!”

Aww, so good! I wish I could enlist these folks to write all of my cards from here on out.

Sweet Monday morning surprise with heart-warming note 💕

Graphic: The terms to know in the discussion around medical marijuana

​Shirley Griggs, 89, is photographed in her room at Valley Terrace in Wilder, #VT, last week. Griggs would like to try medical marijuana to treat her chronic back pain, but Valley Terrace officials won't allow her to. Griggs is not alone. Although medical #marijuana is legal in both New Hampshire and Vermont, a number of obstacles stand in the way of some who wish to use it, including the conflict between state and federal law, a hesitancy among some doctors to recommend it and a limited number of #dispensaries where it is available. ➡️ More at www.vnews.com.

Faculty members and 20 student guides were on hand for an open house on Jan. 19, 1964, to accomodate the more than 1,000 visitors who toured the new Hartford High School and give them a first hand look at some of the latest facilities and teaching aides now being housed in the recently completed structure. Demonstrating the latest equipment to aid language teachers is French teacher Mrs. Ralph Stone. (Valley News – Larry McDonald) Copyright Valley News.
