Rotarians at Work! On Saturday morning, a group of energetic Rotarians performed annual spring cleaning of the Water Garden Park at the Shelburne Town Office complex.
 
 
Our guest speaker this morning is Jack Mayer. Throughout his career, Dr. Mayer has written short stories, poems, and essays about his years in pediatric practice and hiking The Long Trail in Vermont. He was a participant at Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference in 2003 and 2005 for fiction, and in 2008 for poetry. LIFE IN A JAR: The Irena Sendler Project is his first book of non-fiction. He recently completed his first novel, BEFORE THE COURT OF HEAVEN.

Dr. Mayer’s collection of poetry, Poems From The Wilderness was published Nov. 2020. These poems were all composed while solo hiking or skiing in the wilderness of Vermont and New Hampshire. Mayer shares his love of the backcountry, trail-walking, camping, and the “wilderness effect,” a unique sensation of aliveness and deep connection. Though deeply personal, he hopes they will resonate with those pieces of wilderness we all carry within us, and offer respite in these challenging pandemic times.

He lives in Middlebury, Vermont

Guest speaker, Debbie Kassabian, co-owner of Charlotte Crossings, talked about the development of her new multi-use commercial building offering office, retail, and restaurant space. Charlotte Crossings is located on Route 7, south of Ferry Road, in Charlotte.

“I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
and twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretched in never-ending line
along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not be but gay,
in such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
what wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Our guest speaker is Steve Mayfield, owner of the Shelburne Country Store and the Country Christmas Loft. He and his wife, Deb, purchased the country store in 2007. Steve provided a fascinating history of the store and its place in Shelburne history. They purchased the Christmas Loft in 2016. Steve provided some great stories and insight and answered questions.
