- IMPORTANT: Foot clinics at MSAC are back!
- Please join me, Sue Mugford, LPN, for the Montpelier Senior Center foot care clinics. I have been providing much needed foot care in our community for several years. Regular foot care and prevention is very important to our wellbeing. Every six weeks appointments are recommended to keep our feet in good condition. The foot care service includes a visual inspection of the feet, with prevention education on common foot conditions. Foot soaks, nails clipped, and foot cream is applied.
- Please bring your own basin, towel, clippers and foot cream. I look forward to serving and providing our community with this much needed care.
- To schedule, please contact the MSAC office: 223-2518.

Graffiti Removal Infrastructure Team (GRIT) 2023 Season
See How GRIT Cleans Up The Community In The Slideshow Below!
Season Two of Graffiti Removal!
The GRIT team is back! GRIT stands for Graffiti Removal Infrastructure Team - a group of volunteers who are painting over or removing graffiti from many places in downtown Montpelier. GRIT was launched in May, 2022 and organized 17 outings through the summer and into the fall of last year. In 2023, the work continues, including (unfortunately) cleaning up areas which have been retagged by vandals.
Thanks to the Department of Public Works, Montpelier Alive, and Heney Realtors for supplying funds for GRIT to purchase paint, brushes, solvent, and other needed supplies. If you're interested in learning more or volunteering, please contact Nancy Schulz: SaddleShoes2@gmail.com
