This coming Wednesday, CBMS & HUMS will be hosting our 1st ever Career Fair from 8AM until noon in the CBMS gym.  We have approximately 30 presenters who will be volunteering their time to teach your kids about a variety of different careers and job clusters.  One of our registered presenters, Northeastern Vermont Area Health Education Center, is unable to attend. We would love to have the medical field represented in some way!  So I am putting out a last minute request to any parents who are part of the medical field who might be able to lend your expertise on short notice.  Here is a link to a letter outlining presenter goals, which will give you an idea of what/how to present.  The style of the Fair is casual and conversational.  No large presentations are necessary. Please contact me, Jennifer Hempey, at CBMS if you are interested in volunteering.  I can be reached at 244-6100 or via e-mail at   Thank you!

No Trapps or Stowe programs this coming week!
