Bea Fisher Memorial Fund
_In Loving Memory of Bea Fisher (1925 to 2013), a memorial fund has been started in her name to make repairs to the Nurse’s Cabin at the Grange Center. Bea loved staying in this cabin while she enjoyed the activities at the Grange Center. If you would like to contribute to this fund please make checks payable to the Grange Center/Bea Fisher Memorial and send to James Morse 92 Happy Valley Rd, Middlebury VT 05753.
Daryl Lowry of Waltham and Merton Pike of Stowe were recognized for contributions to AgrAbility. It's a program that works with farmers with disabilities, helping them maintain work and life on the farm after accidents. AgrAbility is run by the UVM Extension Service and the Vermont Center for Independent Living.
"The fact that we are out in the elements all the time, many of us working with livestock, heavy machinery, a lot of power equipment, the danger is there," said George Cook, a UVM farm safety specialist.
Lowry helped start the national AgrAbility Project along with Vermont's program.
Merton Pike is a double amputee from a farming accident. At 94, he still offers advice and peer support for people who have lost limbs. And Merton will be featured as this week's WCAX Super Senior Thursday.
