Honoring our Elders

The Wendell Meetinghouse has run the second celebration in their series, “Honoring Our Elders.” In this series, community members learn about the elders in Wendell and are given an opportunity to share memories and gratitude.
This recording from the event on 10/12 celebrates the “icon and trailblazer” Dorthee, the oldest resident of Wendell at 94 years old. Dor is a peace activist, psychologist and environmentalist who was was arrested 5 times for protesting. She was pivotal in the creation of Accessibility Alternative which conserved Wendell forest lands as well as providing land for women to build homes on. Meanwhile at the Montague Center Library, the writer Richie Davis was celebrated in the "Local Author Series”. Richie, a retired reporter from the Greenfield Reporter, has compiled some of his stories from the paper into a book which he shared with the community on 10/18 and forever more on the MCTV Vimeo page. There you will also find updates from the Montague Selectboard Meeting and Gill Selectboard Meeting. All community members are welcome to submit their videos to be aired on Channel 9, as well as featured on the MCTV Vimeo page. If you have any ideas for films, MCTV is always available to assist in local video production as well. Cameras, tripods, and lighting equipment are available for checkout, and filming and editing assistance can be provided.
