Relay for Life

"The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length ... Relay has grown into the world’s largest movement to end cancer. Each year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with additional communities in 20 other countries, gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. Thanks to Relay participants, the American Cancer Society continues to save lives."

Meet Team HOPE. Vermont-native Melynda Sawyer is passionate about this cause. Though most Relay's last only a day, Melynda herself works tirelessly day and night to raise funds with not only a one-day relay, but also with a fund-raising dinner, dance and silent auction. The fund-raising event is planned for Friday, January 14, 2011 at 6pm in the Canadian Club located in Barre, VT.

Donation items are sorely needed. Edibles for the spaghetti dinner, a DJ and sound equipment for the dance, and numerous (new) items and gift certificates large and small for the silent auction. There's no one in this world who cancer hasn't touched. Here's your opportunity to give back. Please contact Melynda directly to find out how you can help.

It's Turkey Time

Thanksgiving is about more than turkey dinner with the family right? This is a time for thanks, but it's also a time for giving. With the manic hustle-bustle and running around of families, sometimes trying to fit in two or even three turkey dinners in a day, it's easy to forget that not all of us are so fortunate. There are thousands of needy families in our Vermont communities. Record numbers of Vermonters are now signing up for state assistance and unemployment benefits. Children are being taught less to "eat healthy" and more to "eat enough." Community shelves are a wonderful asset to any hungry family, but community shelves need our help in continuing to provide their services.

One Vermont family, the Dalziel's, came up with a great charitable idea three years ago. They call it the Dalziel Family Turkey Drive, and they need your help in helping others. This November, you can participate in the Third Annual Dalziel Family Turkey Drive by making a donation online. All proceeds collected go toward the purchase of Thanksgiving Turkeys which are then donated directly to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, so families of lesser means too can have access to the same Thanksgiving traditions that you and I already share in.

Please take a moment to read more about the Third Annual Dalziel Family Turkey Drive on their website:, and then take a moment to remember what Thanksgiving is all about.

Happy holidays from PromoteVT.

Taking a Moment for Art

If you're interested in art ... or maybe you're just interested in horses ... or maybe even you're just interested in finding something fun to do on a Wednesday night, well then here it is!

Opening Reception is Wednesday, September 8 from 4-6pm at the Winding Brook Bistro in Johnson, VT.

Horse Meditations
New Paintings by Marcie Valette
Sept 6-Nov 7

The Winding Brook Bistro
933 Rt 100c Johnson VT

The Bistro is providing free hors d'œuvres!

"Exciting new paintings by local artist Marcie Vallette opens at the Winding Brook Bistro. This is an exciting departure from her work with the East Johnson Plein Air Club that should not be missed. Bold, dynamic horse images that convey a calm and grandeur that is deserving of these stately animals.

In her statement Marcie explains the influence.

"Along with my passion for horses, I have always had a passion for making art. At the turn of the new year, 2010, I thought this year I’d put the two together. I have been studying Centered Riding, which is an approach to horseback riding that combines aspects of meditation and martial arts. It has added to my already enormous appreciation of this animal. I am using the horse as a launching point to explore other formal aspects in my art, including simple black and white, and using color and paint in a way that is experimental for me. For me, it’s interesting to combine what I’ve learned during my centered riding lessons with what I’m doing in my studio. Breathing meditations while I’m painting is one example of how centered riding has informed my studio practice."

Marcie Vallette has lived in Vermont for over 2 decades, and is originally from the Boston area. A founding member of the East Johnson Plein Air Club, she works both on-site and in her studio. She is also a member of the Bryan Gallery, the NVAA, and
Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). Vallette has drawn and painted cover art, illustrated, and performed layout and design for books, magazines and numerous other kinds of publications. Exhibitions of her art have appeared regularly for 18 years throughout northern Vermont. She has a BFA from Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, an M.Ed from Johnson State College, and she spent 3 years on staff at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson. She is currently a first year nursing student at Vermont Technical College."

Saving Money for Yourself and Others

Small businesses thrive on word of mouth advertising. It's a fact. You can spend all the time and money in the world advertising your company through newspaper, radio, television and direct mail, and that'll do you some good for sure ... but if just one person out there feels the desire to tell their friends and colleagues about a great experience they had with your company ... you're golden. Word-of-mouth advertising is the basis of The Buyer's Market. By buying into the program you are making an agreement with The Buyer's Market that they will tell people about your business in exchange for you telling people about theirs. There's more ... in an effort to reward small business owners for their efforts, The Buyer's Market is offering a profit-sharing plan that you simply CAN NOT PASS UP.

"People love to tell others when they find a great deal and save money. We also can't wait to tell everyone we know about a business that treated us well, honestly, and priced their service fairly.

At The Buyers Market, we not only rely on "word of mouth" advertising, but we reward you for it! If a successful business spends upwards of 20% on advertising then why not us!

Difference is, we spend it on the best advertising we could get, YOU!

So here is how it works...

if you know someone who has a service or product that you think would benefit by joining us in The Buyers Market, let them know and let us know! We will contact them to see if they can benefit from us advertising for them. All we need from you is their company name and a way to contact them (either a phone number or address). We will take it from there! Or perhaps you know a few individuals who need to stretch their money a little farther each month. We can most likely save them many times more then the $10 they'll spend on the membership -- usually within one use of service! Again, let them know and let us know!

When they sign up and pay their membership, you will get $1 for each and everyone that signs up as a result of your introduction. And, not just once! You will continue to get $1 for each month that they remain a member. All you need to do to keep those checks coming in, is to continue your membership. You do the 'work' once, but continue to benefit and build a residual monthly income. It doesn't stop there! Because you got the ball rolling, you will also be paid on all of the referrals that they make. That's right - those that sign up under that those that signed up because of you, you will get .50 cents per person, per month! And, you didn't even do the 'work'! ...

Now think about this - If you like the membership and use the services, you are saving money. If you have a business, you also get to advertise and bring many more customers to you. Now you're making money! Then, if you know just 2 people that you think could benefit from The Buyers Market membership and refer them to us, you put in motion a pay back plan that will eventually cover the cost of your own membership. All of this is being accomplished with just $10/month!"

Helping Build Up Our Local Community

The Buyer's Market is about so much more than just business advertising. TBM is about building community, helping others and making Vermont a better place. One dollar out of every membership paid each month is pooled and used to help fund community projects throughout this state.

"Although The Buyers Market will remain politically and religiously neutral, we do have a great respect for the community and all the wonderful people in it. So if you know of a project that will benefit your town or our state, please send an email and let us know. We're looking for interesting projects that may need either some of our services at a reduced rate, or some seed money to get something built or started. It could be something small like stocking the shelves at the local food shelf, or paying one of our handymen or women to deliver or pick up something needed at a non profit. Maybe your school or daycare needs some playground equipment fixed up. And we hope it grows to be able to look at some lofty goals too. I would like to see some space acquired that could be used by The Buyers Market members as a kind of
swap meet space for your yard sale items, and a tool refurbishing shop that could buy your old unwanted tools and equipment, fix them up, and then rent them back to the members at the prices we used to pay when it made more sense to rent than to buy. Remember when you could rent a cement mixer or wood splitter for $10 a day? I've been working on a plan to recycle old worn out tires. If we could take them from TBM members for free and recycle them, what a bonus to the membership that would be. Could we save a family farm and turn it into an organic supplier of vegetables and meat for the members? At greatly reduced prices for the members. With some money and good ideas, think about what we could accomplish!"

Back To Basics

Remember the days when a gentleman's handshake was as good as gold? We didn't need contracts, up-front deposits paid in full, OR small claims court. Once upon a time there was a time when people and small businesses worked together to help each other out. When good for me and good for you meant good for everyone involved. One man with a vision is working hard to recreate these circumstances. His name is Larry Brothers. Larry, with help from several small business owners who share his vision, has brought to life The Buyer's Market. In his words, The Buyer's Market is "a conscientious approach to an opportunity born out of necessity. A grassroots approach to back to basics marketing. Marketing based on the fundamental ideal of 'providing value to the community, while making a living for yourself and family.'"

Here's how it works: Small businesses through-out Vermont subscribe to a Buyer's Market membership. This membership only costs them $10 per month. Here's what it gets them:

-Seamless and constant advertising via the Buyer's Market website (

-Inclusion in regularly updated fliers and emails offering members and potential members information on products and services that YOU and other members are offering.

-Not only will you be advertising your own business to a growing number of fellow members, but you will have access to other member's products and services, often at incredible discounts. The Buyer's Market will periodically update you with information on new members and fantastic deals.

Think of The Buyer's Market as a growing network of small businesses and people throughout Vermont, who want to work together on saving each other money, time, and headache.

There's more ...

* Tomorrow we will discuss The Buyer's Market Community Project Fund, and

* Thursday you will learn how YOU can take advantage of The Buyer's Market Profit Sharing plan, or even become a member of The Buyer's Market Advisory Board yourself.

We work hard so you don't have to.

I wish I could say I knew what I wanted to do from childhood on. I wish I could say I had an MBA in communications and marketing. I suppose I could say it ... but I'd be lying. Cambridge Event & Design wasn't born of any lifelong drive. It was born of timing, necessity, and convenient work-experience. I've been in business for myself for only a year now. I know ... never admit such things ... but it's the truth. That's not to say I've only been doing this work for a year. On the contrary, somehow, someway, regardless of where I've been employed in the past or what my job description was, I always ended up being the business's "marketing girl." I never received the official title (and monetary compensation) of course, but the responsibility has repeatedly fallen on my shoulders. I'd like to think it's because I'm good at it. Actually ... I will think that ... sound like a plan?

When I found myself abruptly unemployed last summer I was faced with three options.

1. Go on unemployment: not all that desirable, and considering I'm a single mother of three, not all that responsible either.
2. Jump back in and hit the streets applying for jobs. I started this, a little. I put my resume out and got in touch with some key people, but my heart wasn't in it.
3. Take a chance, jump in with both feet, and make a go at working for myself.

And here we are.

Cambridge Event & Design is an events and marketing company that I run out of my home in Jeffersonville, VT. My overhead is low, and so are my prices. I coordinate events ranging from weddings to parades to family festivals and fundraisers. Events are fun ... they're exciting and frankly there's nothing better than seeing smiles on children's faces, but they aren't the backbone of this business. Marketing is what gets me by and it's what keeps me going. I really enjoy the design aspect of putting together ads, packaging, signs and banners, logos ... you name it. I have a special kinship with my computer and my design software that most people don't have. It's silly, I know, but I honestly do LOVE what I do. Lucky me. Lucky you.

Stop Horsing Around

You wouldn't trust just anyone to perform surgery on your foot ... so why would you trust just anyone to shoe your horse? The fact is that a proper fit is essential to your horse's health and performance. If you're looking for the best, you needn't look any further than Next Generation Hoofcare, based in Jeffersonville, VT. Next Generation Hoofcare is owned and operated by Chad Blasch. Chad studied at Cornell University of Veterinary Medicine, Farrier Science in New York, and studied under Michael Wildenstein, the most examined and accomplished master farrier living today. During his time there he was thoroughly trained in the latest techniques of thereputic and performance shoeing and trimming for all levels and disciplines of equine activities. He worked directly with the Large Animal Hospital, coordinating with Veterinarians and owners to provide the highest quality hoofcare available. Now Chad is back home in Vermont, and offering his extraordinary services here.

The services he offers include trimming, hot shoeing and glue on shoes. Also, Next Generation Hoofcare is one of the few farriers in this state that has a strong background in therapeutic applications.

For more information on Next Generation Hoofcare or to meet the man who should be shoeing your horse, visit!/pages/Jeffersonville-VT/Next-Generation-Hoofcare/136296233059819?v=info&ref=ts&__a=17&ajaxpipe=1 or call Next Generation Hoofcare at 802-644-5303.

Lowest of Tides

There are so many struggling musicians in this world ... as a matter of fact, there are so many struggling musicians in VERMONT. Yet here I am promoting one such band over the others. Why, you ask? Well because I believe in this band. Lowest of Tides isn't exactly my kind of music but ... and I don't know that they fit into any specific genre but ... Wait ... what's my problem? How about I allow them to describe themselves?

"We are the unlikely combination of men from very different walks of life, testing and experimenting with the boundaries and limits of our own creative minds. Lacking any sort of marriage to one particular sound or genre, we met under very unlikely and ironic circumstances. We are an amalgam of youth and experience, a mix of beauty and ugliness, a representation of the duality of darkness and light. We are not the first or the last to use music as a conduit for the search of a higher truth, or a greater consciousness. We cannot claim precedent in our dual use of hypnotic ambient interludes and brutally heavy and dissonant tones. All we can do is create, for we are only governed by the restraints of our own knowledge and capacity, which through many mediums respective to each member grows everyday. It is in this fact that illustrates the difference between ‘them’ and us, for we will take you on a journey, our own journey of the internal and innate parts of the human psyche. We will carry you with us and shield you from the blinding light as we discover more about ourselves and the ever-changing environment we live in. We are completely and wholly open to you, if you will have us."

There you have it. Lowest of Tides performs their first ever album release show this Saturday night at Manhatten Pizza. First band goes on at 9 with LOT immediately following. If you're looking for a fun night out, well there it is. Visit for more info on the men who make me dizzy.

Making it Homemade, Cont'

It's amazing really when two people from varied upbringings find themselves together and passionate about the same thing: creating. The Mill and Anvil is one such partnership, between best friends and spouses Chad and Linda Blasch. Linda works hard at her sewing machine or in the kitchen. Mixing ingredients and pairing fabrics to build beautiful high-quality products. Meanwhile Chad is hard at work with fire and metal, forging both classic and abstract metalwork pieces for the home and garden.

Today we highlight Chad Blasch, one half of The Mill and Anvil, for his hard work and passion at molding beauty. See more on The Mill and Anvil's blog at or visit one of the Cambridge Area Farmer's Markets to see the people and the products in person.

Making it Homemade

Sometimes in life we meet people randomly who end up sticking around for a while. It was one such random encounter that led me to Chad and Linda Blasch, a newlywed couple living in Jeffersonville, VT. Since I met the Blasch's last year their lives have gone through some major changes. Linda quit her 9-5 office job and Chad decided to strike out on his own doing what he does best, forging and farrier work. It was during this transition that the couple decided it was time to make a go at living off of what they love, and so The Mill and Anvil was born.

Linda is an accomplished seamstress specializing in handbags, wallets, sacks, backpacks and duffles. She's also tried her hand at mixing herbs and essential oils to create scented body products. She's currently interning at Way Out Wax, based in Morrisville, VT to learn the ropes of candle making.

Chad has been forging metals for years. He attended Cornell's veterinary school and gained his credentials in Farrier Science. He's since expanded on his work to include designer housewares. More on Chad later ... today is Linda's day to shine.

We all need an electrician ...

Here's my story: Two years ago I bought a basic Hunter ceiling fan at Home Depot. After the box sat on my dining room table for about a month I got tired of looking at it and decided to put the fan together. This took me maybe 30 minutes and there I had a beautiful cherry-blade and aged bronze ceiling fan ... sitting on my dining room table. The fan has since migrated about the house. If only I had a closet big enough ... but I don't. Post-dining-room-table it sat in the corner of the living room for a bit, but after the kids realized it could be colored on with markers it got moved again. It moved onto the front enclosed porch, in the corner, as far from daily traffic as I could possibly get it. I did periodically trip over it when vacuuming and the blades have been chewed on a bit by the cat. Who knew that the finished product would actually be about 3 times bigger than the fan-in-a-box? That lasted two years.

I'm pretty handy around the house. I do my own painting and some light carpentry. I've been known to lay glue-down flooring and patch plaster walls ... but I'm no electrician. Finally I gave up the dream of eventually hanging the fan myself and I called Matt Schoop, Journeyman Electrician. Matt laughed at my plight ... and I don't blame him. He was in my living room less than a week later and the fan was in. He even patched up the holes he'd had to make to wire up into the 120 year old ceiling that had never before seen electrical wiring. Now I have a fan ... and thank god, because it's been toasty warm around here.

I'm the first person to admit that hiring contractors to work on your home can be tough. It seems like every Tom, Dick (and Jane!) is out there claiming quality craftsmanship and trying to make a buck off your household situation. What else can the responsible homeowner do but rely on word-of-mouth and others' recommendations?

Well here it is: I recommend Matt Schoop, Journeyman Electrician for your household, commercial, and petroleum industry electrical needs. His rates are reasonable, he's a totally pleasant guy to be around, trustworthy, bright, and gets the job done right the first time. Give him a call and see for yourself. 802-644-6475

February 1, 2010 - promoteVT
(802) 324-1201

promoteVT is excited to be kicking off the second month of this exciting marketing campaign. I have met so many great people and learned more about VT businesses! It's been more amazing then I could have ever dreamed of. I LOVE all of the positive feedback that we have received from businesses who have had new clients/customers who heard about them through promoteVT! Also, people in the community thanking me for promote Vermont!

It is MY pleasure to be doing this. It is so much fun and very rewarding with every "Thank You"!

A couple of things have changed since we launched on January 1. The first big change was our website! The second change was our pricing system. We have changed things over to a flat rate which is $50/day - still NO minimum amount of days needed. However, we do have a few businesses who are doing one day each month for a few months or even the rest of the year. It's totally up to you - if you only want to book one day, that's totally fine!

I look very much forward to the end of the year. I am putting my heart and soul into this marketing campaign. I am excited for the rest of this journey and can't want to share it with all of you! Thank you for the support!

Please be sure to continue to pass the word along about promoteVT! The more people who know, the more exposure businesses will get, the more people will BUY LOCAL - STAY LOCAL! Let's be sure to get the 2010 calendar booked up so we can continue to keep Vermonters informed about the great companies right here in VT!

Thanks again,
Mauranda Dalziel

Comfort Cookies - PICTURES!

Check out the pictures of the samples that Comfort Cookies Inc sent me!


Now go order yourself some cookies!!!

January 31, 2010 - Comfort Cookies

Comfort Cookies started as a ‘fluke’ in 2006 with one flavor: Chocolate Chip. Friends had been telling them for years to try and sell their cookie because they thought it was delicious. After reading an article in the NY Times about home-bakers, they realized it was possible and so Comfort Cookies was born! Today Comfort Cookies has grown to 30 flavors…including Gluten Free varieties.

Gluten-Free Comfort Cookies came about because people said, “Your cookies look really good but I cannot have wheat.” So in the Fall of 2009, they started experimenting with wheat-free flours. They have gotten inspiring feedback and so this has sparked them to try to keep adding more flavors!

They love to do tastings/demos for their cookies because they love meeting people, listening to their ideas AND they want folks to sample before they buy. Also in meeting them, they can see who they are ‘supporting’ when they purchase a Comfort Cookie. They really do believe that the world is a big community and we need to put their efforts where their mouths are. They find a lot of people in Vermont think like them and that is one of the primary reasons they moved here last year. People talk about the cold weather in Vermont but they tell folks the ‘warmth of the people’ here more than makes up for it!

They believe in kindness, compassion and passion! They believe in volunteerism and advocacy and see their cookies as an avenue to continue supporting the fight against hunger, child abuse and pediatric cancer and other related childhood diseases.

Comfort Cookies also made a vow 3 years ago to continue sending ‘Care Packages’ overseas to the men and women who proudly support our country in war-torn places like Iraq and Afghanistan. So far, they have been able to keep that promise. If anyone has an APO/FRP address they can pass it along to and they will gladly add it to their list.

You HAVE to try their cookies! They are amazing! Very soft and scrumptious!

Don't forget that Valentine's Day is right around the corner... Be sure to order your cookies today!

What I made for dinner - a recipe from


Maple & Apple Braised Chicken

Serves 4

4 boneless, skin-on chicken breasts

Salt and ground black pepper

3 tablespoons grape seed oil

1 apple, sliced

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 bay leaf

1 ½ teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

1/2 cup chicken stock or Apple Cider

2 tablespoon unsalted butter

1. Preheat oven to 425º.

2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

3. Heat a large oven proof sauté pan over medium high heat and add oil. When hot add chicken breasts skin side down. Brown the chicken on both sides then add apple slices.

4. Add vinegar, maple syrup, bay leaf, thyme, and stock to the sauté pan. Bring to a boil. Place pan in oven and roast until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165° F, 6-10 minutes.

5. Remove chicken from the oven. If needed reduce sauce 3 minutes to thicken over high heat. Turn heat off, add butter and adjust the seasoning.

6. Serve chicken with sauce and mashed potatoes!

This was super easy to make! I took one bit and was in heaven. I felt like a gourmet chef! My husband said that it was the best thing I have ever made!!! And wants to have this again for dinner... SOON!

January 25, 2010 - Efusjon Energy Club

TJ Chelak Jr.
Phone: (802) 363-1541

efusjon is a brand new company. They officially launch Jan 30th when they kick off they International tour prior to the Winter Olympics in CANADA!! With this company being new (well, 67,000 people have walked through the doors so far) TJ's connection to the retired VP of Dean Witter Financials who brought him into the company, his friend Peter Hawks, has him positioned with only 1000 of those 67,000 people above him. Meaning, if you were on your way to a football game and waiting in line to get into the game and you were the 1000th person in line and those other 66,000 people had to pass a dollar up to you, that would make you very happy. That is what he is trying to offer his friends and family - a position in this company. Not if, but when, this company becomes hugely successful, it would be extremely safe to say the people who jump on board are really well off!!! That's the biz side of it...

What really matters, is the health side of it. Everybody we know should be consuming these antioxidants to prevent cancer and other disease!! How do you make people believers??? LISTEN TO THIS: TJ's close friend Eric who had inoperable brain cancer didn't hesitate - studies have shown just the Acai Berry alone kills 83% of cancer cells in test tube experiments.

Here's my take on the whole thing:
As far as the taste goes - I was SHOCKED! I am incredibly picky!!! So, when TJ first wanted me to try one of these drinks, I was actually quite nervous. But, to my amazement, they really are good. My husband and I tried 3 of them at first, and we both really enjoyed the taste. It's quite smooth and refreshing!

I'll be taking a couple of pictures today of me drinking efusjon! Stay tuned!!
