Whiting Library in Chester has a bright new sign thanks to the  Vermont Country Store in Rockingham.

The old sign was hard to see while driving along Chester’s scenic Main Street, tending to blend into the brick colors of the library and the trees farther down the street. The new sign was designed and painted by Southern Vermont Signworks of Manchester. It sports red letters within a black frame.

Whiting Library thanks the Vermont Country Store Community Action Team of the Rockingham Store: store manager Deane Cooper and Carrie Atwood, Maime Thayer, Sarah Rawson and Donna Ranney.

St. Luke’s donates garden tools for lending

The Whiting Library received a gift of garden tools, courtesy of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont’s Stirrings of the Spirit grant.

The rake, pitch fork, edger and deep shovel given to the library by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church will allow people to borrow the tools to prepare a new garden for next year or maintain an existing garden more easily.

Lillian Willis is the instructor for the My Vegetable Garden project offered by St. Luke’s Church this past summer to Chester and Andover residents.
