    Dear Ms. Ganley,

    My wife Catherine met you today at a cheese making workshop and I realized that about a year ago I was trying to track you down in connection with the College’s Stone Mill. Last year I worked with three Middlebury students on a project interviewing dairy farmers about trapping and specifically about the owner-built boats they used. We ended up building a replica trapping boat in the Mill. I hope to continue this work with students in the fall and also expand this research in conjunction with the Henry Sheldon Museum. If you think this would dovetail with any of your work in community engagement please let me know. Here are a couple of links to last year’s project:
