The Vermont Calendar Project was created by Williston residents to benefit public libraries throughout Vermont. It is the brain-child of Marcy Kass, graphic designer and Trustee of the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library. The team includes Andy Duback-photographer, Kathy Bielawa Stamper – writer and Marti Fiske- Director of the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library and Immediate Past-President of the Vermont Library Association. Seed funds were loaned by the Friends of the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library. Libraries across Vermont will be offering these calendars for sale and will keep all of the profits after production costs.
