Dr. Robinson's 3-4 classroom blog from 2012-2016

The students in Dr. Robinson's 3-4 Team studied South Hero History for 6 years and took many field trips around town.
Click on this link to see where the students went around town and what townsfolk they met along the way.


At the end of 2018 Lake Champlain Access Television [LCATV] started filming our presentations. Their output is 2 to 4 times sharper than the videos I was putting up. That means it takes a little longer to get the video to start. [The reason I reduced the quality level of my videos.] Their production is different than mine and you will notice that immediately.
When you click on a video, it starts to load. It will take about 30 seconds [an eternity when you are waiting] to start playing. The speakers will start to sound and the video will look like it is not running for about 23 seconds. LCATV puts up an identification POSTER for those 23 seconds. Don't be alarmed, it is running if you can hear the sound.

The meeting concluded with all enjoying listening to some of Bret Corbin's tapes from the Vermont Folklife Center of an interview of his father, Horace Corbin, regarding the history of the Lake Champlain Transportation Company. Malcolm Allen also shared a number of anecdotal stories from when he was called with his wrecker to help out with some sticky situations at the ferry dock.

Dues were set at $10 per individual and Sue will look into setting up a bank account at the Merchant's Bank and getting non-profit status with the state.

There was discussion about possible programs, the relationship between the society and the museum, and forming a by-laws committee to work on the society by-laws.

The first meeting of the by-laws committee was Jan. 17th at Folsom School.  The next meeting will be Jan. 31st at Folsom School.
