President Marcy started her the meeting with this day in History…......  
On this day in 1944, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is elected to an unprecedented fourth term in office. FDR remains the only president to have served more than two terms. Roosevelt rose above personal and political challenges to emerge as one of the nation’s most revered and influential presidents. In 1921, at the age of 29, he contracted polio and thereafter was burdened with leg braces; eventually, he was confined to a wheelchair. From the time he was first elected to the presidency in 1932 to mid-1945, when he died while in office, Roosevelt presided over two of the biggest crises in U.S. history: the Great Depression of the 1930s and World War II.
1972Richard Nixon defeats Senator George McGovern (D-South Dakota) and is re-elected President of the United States. With only 55 percent of the electorate voting, the lowest turnout since 1948, Nixon carried all states but Massachusetts, taking 97 percent of the electoral votes.
1943Joni Mitchell is born Roberta Joan Anderson in Fort MacLeod, Alberta Canada. Even as a child taking piano lessons, Joni Mitchell showed more interest in composing her own melodies than in playing the pieces her teacher assigned her. When the folk-music revival of the late 1950s and early 1960s came to Saskatoon—the college town in which she spent most of her childhood—Mitchell resolved to learn the guitar in order to become a competent accompanist at sing-alongs. A bout with polio as a child had left Mitchell unable to form the chords with her left hand that her ear wanted to hear, so early on she began experimenting with non-standard guitar tunings that would later become part of her signature sound.

He and Tina went and hung out in Brooklyn and waited at the 8-mile mark to catch a glimpse of them. Great energy at the race and great weekend with kids.

The Windham Orchestra, with Music Director Hugh Keelan, features local musicians and composers who take pride in providing symphonic music to Southeastern Vermont and their commitment to keeping classical music vital and building future audiences.
The Windham Orchestra serves a number of important roles in the musical community:

Hugh and Jenna run a company called TUNDI Productions. It was named after Wagner’s opera Tristan UND Isolde. They perform music that summons the deepest emotions and the most burning issues of being human, so you can experience transcendence and interact with the music and musicians and share about your experience and engage in your own creativity.  They bring large scale operatic works to life so that you can be immersed in the experience, lost in the emotion and create a fulfillment that is only available through music.
