Posted: Updated:
VERMONT -

We have some ideas for what you can do on your Sunday, January 19, 2014.

SKATE-A-THON

The Upper Valley Trails Alliance's annual Skate-a-thon fundraiser is from 10a.m.-3 p.m. Join other winter sports enthusiasts as they skate laps on the Lake Morey Skating Trail, the longest groomed skating trail in the United States. All proceeds from this fundraiser go to maintaining the skating trail for the public.

TOUR DE SNOW

The organizer of the Stowe Tour de Snow tells me that they've come up fun stuff to do during the event, including Broom ball games, Snow Bowling and frisbee golf! The fun starts at noon in the large field across from the Stowe Mini Golf, on the Mountain Road. It's $5 a person.

FAMILY FORMAL

Make Memories While Making a Wish Come True. CVU's Business Ethics class is hosting its seventh annual Family Formal at the CVU Cafeteria. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 per child. All of the money raised will go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

THEATER AUDITIONS

Budding thespians ages 10 through 18 can try out for the Valley Players' summer production of the 'The Secret Garden'. The auditions are from 2-4PM at Valley Players Theater in Waitsfield.

JACKIE ROBINSON

The author and daughter of baseball great Jackie Robinson is speaking at 3 p.m. at First Unitarian Universalist Society in Burlington and it is free for everyone. It is part of a commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King.

WATERBURY WINTERFEST

Waterbury is holding its Winterfest through Sunday, January 26. There have been a few changes because of the weather, but organizers say the festival is still a go. They say most of the 40+ events are free. Competitive events have nominal registration fees. There is a great mix of outdoor activities and indoor events. Many local businesses are taking part with special promotions, discounts, specials through the entire week of Winterfest. For times and details visit: www.wtrbry-winterfest.org

SPORTSMAN'S CLASSIC

The 22nd Annual Yankee Sportsman's Classic at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction continues, with demonstrations and workshops. Sunday is the last day of that event.

ORCHESTRA CONCERT

The Windham Orchestra presents "Bruckner in Bratt." Some of the images that are evoked are a "cathedral in sound," the Romanticism of German folk tales, the sounds of brass and hunting horns, the quality of a massive pipe organ, heart-stopping chorales of intense fervor. Bruckner's lineage is from Beethoven and Wagner, and sounds like neither. For more information visit: www.bmcvt.org

PIANO PERFORMANCE

Marlboro College is hosting pianist Benjamin Hochman at 3 p.m. at the Ragle Hall, in the Serkin Center for the Performing Arts. The concert, including music by Knussen, Brahms, and Rzewski, is part of Marlboro's Music for a Sunday Afternoon series, and is free and open to the public.

FUNDRAISING DINNER

Enjoy a bowl of soup to support the Waterbury Food Shelf. Waterbury Congregational Church is holding its Empty Bowls fundraiser. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the fundraiser, which features soups donated by local restaurants, homemade rolls, fruit salad, and dessert. The bowls, which people get to take home, were made at Seminary Arts in Waterbury Center. It's $20 for the bowl and meal, and $10 for additional adults. Kids eat free with the purchase of a bowl for the family. All proceeds go to the Waterbury Food Shelf.
