Community members are invited to a celebration to recognize the anniversary of Tropical Storm Irene in Moretown at 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 25. The celebration starts with a dedication of the 7 Standing Stones garden in the Strauss floodplain behind the Moretown Library. The stones are foundation stones from the former Moretown Masonic Lodge that were erected on the site of the memorial garden created by Caroline and Roger Strauss in the location where their backyard oasis was washed away by Irene.
All are welcome to stroll the gardens, enjoy the party, participate in a duck race, then float or stroll down to the Moretown Fire Department for a Moretown Ladies Auxiliary pig and trash can turkey roast. Dinners, activities, games and music will be featured.
On Sunday, August 26, at 10:30 a.m., the MoretownMethodistChurch will hold a special service in honor of August 28, 2011, with a theme of “Goodnight Irene, Hello Tomorrow” featuring well-known musicians performing special music. Among the performers will be The Gospel Choir of Montpelier, Elizabeth von Trapp, George Woodard, congregants, Moretown residents and others.
