Adele Myers and Dancers to Perform in St. Johnsbury
more than a decade, Adele Myers has lit up the dance world with a singular style that combines effortless grace with a sly sense of humor. A gifted choreographer working with a very talented five-member ensemble, Myers uses movement to create expressive narratives told from a distinctly female perspective. Her latest work explores the quest for intimacy in a world of spectacle, fusing Myers’ trademark theatricality with dazzling athleticism and disarming poignancy.
Kingdom County Productions (KCP) will present Adele Myers and Dancers performing a mixed repertory program of her most celebrated work at 7:30pm, Saturday May 12th at the St. Johnsbury School. A special free dancers’ workshop will also be presented on Friday afternoon. Contact Linda Little at KCP (802-357-4616 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.

Stanstead’s development agent, and Stanstead mayor (both in centre at back) are surrounded by the group of immigrants who visited the town last week. Seen also is of the in the first row at the right.
Agroupof about fifteen newly arrived immigrants to Canada visited the town of Stanstead last Thursday, receiving a guided tour that began at the Pat Burns Arena where they were welcomed by Mayor Philip Dutil and where they saw a presentation about local attractions. The tour brought the group to see the principal points of interest in the town, the residential sectors and certain enterprises in the industrial park. In the afternoon the group got to meet with about ten employers from the area who are looking for manpower.
“The objective of this activity is to make our town more dynamic and bring new citizens here,” said Mr. Dutil. “Immigrants represent qualified manpower for the employers here, besides bringing a richness to the community as residents. We decided to bring these people to Stanstead and put them in direct contact with enterprises to allow them to find employment. We also hope that today we helped them to discover the quality of life we have here in Stanstead by showing them our industries, our recreational and tourist attractions, our schools, our family policy, our residential sectors and more to help give them the urge to move here.”
The activity was organized by the town of Stanstead, the Memphremagog CLD and the Service d’aide aux Neo-canadiens.
