Dont’ Have Cable TV – Get MMCTV Videos Over the Web —Larry Bohen / Audiobooks Online: Mount Mansfield Community Television is the public access TV station for the towns of Richmond, Jericho, Underhill and a segment of Essex, Vermont.
For years, Mount Mansfield Community TV has been filming local governmental meetings (select board & school board) meetings and broadcasting them on cable channel 15. For as many years these meetings have not been available to me through my home TV as I get my TV by satellite. I recently discovered that MMCTV streams their videos over the Web for anyone with an Internet connection (computer, Smartphone, iPad…) AND MMCTV is NOT just about governmental meetings anymore.
Interested in volunteering, posting an event on the MMCTV community bulletin board or producing a TV show on a topic that interests you? Contact us: P.O. Box 688 Richmond, VT 05477, tel. (802) 434-2550, fax (802)434-2549, e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org

Richmond Photographer Featured in Labor of Love Exhibit The photography of Richmond photographer Mary Claire Carroll will be featured in Vermont Works for Women Labor of Love multimedia exhibit set to open on November 9th. The exhibit is part of VWW’s 25th Anniversary Bash and Reception to be held at Elley-Long Music Center at Saint Michael’s College from 7 to 9 pm that evening.
The Labor of Love exhibit is a celebration of Vermont women and their work. Twenty-eight nominees were selected from a field of more than150 nominations. Within the group you will find filmmakers, tattoo artists, heads of colleges, general store clerks, farmers, and doctors. They hail from Newport to Vernon. They are young and young-at-heart, well known and not.
Mary Claire’s photographs will be accompanied by short interviews recorded by high school students with the help of the Vermont Folklife Center. The recordings were done at a daylong mentoring event held in May. After the November 9th event the exhibit will travel around the state for a year. The next stop for the exhibit is Winooski’s Welcome Center gallery.
Vermont Works for Women is celebrating twenty- five years of helping women and girls recognize their potential and explore, pursue, and excel in work that leads to economic independence.
Women above are Mary Claire Carroll (professional photographer & Richmond resident), Deborah Lisi-Baker (educator & advocate for the disabled), Candace Taylor (UVM’s Women Center), Rosina Wallace (organic farmer from Waterbury). Photo credits to North Photography and Carroll Photos.
What’s the Difference Between FREE & Enhanced Listings?
The new Western Slopes of Northern Vermont website gives FREE listings to ANY business or organization in Bolton, Huntington & Richmond. A FREE online directory listing looks like the image to the left. Although a FREE listing is good, an Enhanced Listing (just pennies per day) provides significantly more information (your logo, a 50 word description, email address, and a link to your website and Facebook page) and likely much more exposure of your business or organization. Check out Washburn’s Servicenter Enhanced Listing to see the difference.
Here’s what Lisa & Brian Washburn say“Lisa and I are members because we see the value in a business association…All the volunteers at Western Slopes have put in countless hours of their own time promoting the towns they love and live in…the new website is proof of that. There is a pile of information there for anyone moving to the area or that is coming to the area to mountain bike, or have a wedding etc… We feel we are getting a lot of value from advertising on the Western Slopes web site. Western Slopes is essential to keeping our local businesses thriving.”
