New Local Book Explores Vermont's Marble Industry
The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing's popular Images of America is Vermont's Marble Industry from local author Catherine Miglorie. This book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.
The marble deposits in Vermont are some of the richest in the world. Vermont's Marble Industry takes readers deep inside the quarries of the Green Mountain State to show how stone was sawed and raised from the earth to be cut, polished and carved into monuments and structures that today are spread across the country.
Catherine Miglorie has lived most of her life in Proctor, Vermont, home of the Vermont Marble Company. Miglorie began writing professionally in 2002. Her writing is based on her work experience in the Vermont marble industry
and especially her affiliation with Dimensions of Marble, a non-profit organization founded in 2005 to document and share the story of marble, its artistry and most important, its people. One of Dimensions of Marble's projects was a historical series "Marble Minutes" which was published in the Rutland Herald. Ms. Miglorie was the second writer of that series. Vermont's Marble Industry is based primarily from research done in the extensive archives of the Proctor Historical Society and Proctor Free Library, and was sparked by her interest in marble from writing the "Marble Minutes" stories.
Catherine Miglorie will speak about her research into the marble industry, along with a slide show of historical Proctor images, at the Proctor Free Library on May 29,2013 at 6:30 p.m.

Town of Proctor Committees Vacancies
The Proctor Selectboard is looking to fill vacancies on the Parks and Recreation Committee and to form a Law Enforcement Committee.
The Parks and Recreation Committee consists of up to five (5) members appointed by the Selectboard, every effort will be made to include one (1) Pool representative, one (1) Rink representative, and one (1) Youth League representative. Upon the direction of the Selectboard, the Parks and Recreation Committee provides guidance to the Selectboard regarding the programs, long range planning, use of municipally-owned parks, fields and facilities and reviews each department’s budget. This committee has been charged with working with the directors/managers of the two recreation facilities on management/operational issues as needed.
At this year’s Town meeting, the voters supported the formation of a Law Enforcement Committee to look at local law enforcement vs. contracting with the Sheriff’s Department for law enforcement. The makeup and charge for the committee is currently being developed by the Selectboard.
The goal of the Selectboard is to appoint candidates who are broadly representative of the community and whose qualifications and interests match the needs of the committee. However, an applicant does not need to be an expert in any particular area to be appointed.
Any resident interested in serving should complete an application form available at the Town Office. Only the official form will be accepted as an application. Committee vacancies are posted in the Town Office. Applicants will be scheduled for an interview with the Selectboard and appointed accordingly. Although committees may recommend and recruit potential members, the Selectboard has the appointing authority and does not allow committees to appoint new members.
