Auction to Benefit the West River Railroad Museum (Online): The West River Railroad, established in 1880, ran from Brattleboro to South Londonderry and was discontinued in 1936. The Newfane Depot was one of ten on the line and had been used for different purposes through the years until the Historical Society of Windham County was given the opportunity to purchase the Depot in 2014 and set about to restore the Depot and make it a museum for the West River Railroad. The Museum opened in 2017 and has been open every year to the public free-of-charge on weekends from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. . Through Saturday, October 9. Online.

BRATTLEBORO Solidarity Fridays: This coalition acts with these shared principles: Everyone should have what they need. People's lives over profit. We choose not to fight against or react to those who disagree with us, but rather invite them to talk with us so that we may find our common interests and beliefs. Being on streets together raises our spirits, breaks isolation, helps build a network of people who want to do this work.". 5 p.m. weekly on Fridays. Brattleboro Solidarity, The Root Social Justice Center, Lost River Racial Justice, Tenants Union of Brattleboro came together last summer during Black Lives Matter uprisings. Later, we were joined by 350 Brattleboro, VT Debt Collective, Youth 4 Change, Out in the Open. We recognize that streets must stay alive to enact the level of broad changes across struggles urgently needed - for humans, animals, the planet.
