AGE OUT LOUD 2018 Fundraiser

A Benefit for Central Vermont Council on Aging

This auction benefits the Central Vermont Council on Aging.  Our mission is to support Vermonters to age with dignity and choice.  Our auction will be online until Thursday May 3, 9pm and will continue as a silent auction before the live event at the Barre Opera House on Friday, May 4 from 6:30-7:30pm.  

What is “Age Out Loud?  May 4 7:30pm at the Barre Opera House

Age Out Loud” is an evening of comedic storytelling about aging and families featuring NPR award winning comedic storytellers and Moth Slam producers, Susanne Schmidt and Kevin Gallagher, with live blues/rock music by The Brevity Thing.  There will be a special guest performance by Vermont story teller, Willem Lange.  The event also includes a silent auction and an art exhibit of works by older central Vermont artists during the month of May.  Many artists donate their works for the silent auction. 

Central Vermont Council on Aging believes in facing Vermont’s aging state with inclusion and optimism.

We are all dynamic, changing, and yes, aging all the time.  Yet, our society tends to regard aging and being old as an “othering” experience that is wholly separate from other stages of life.   This “older as other” attitude may lead to devaluing older people rather than harnessing the accumulated lifetime of skills, experience, and ingenuity older people contribute to our communities in workplaces, mentoring, volunteerism, and family life.  Storytelling is way to bring a community together, in this case to laugh together over stories about aging and families. The point of Age Out Loud is not only to fundraise for CVCOA, but to use the art of humorous and poignant storytelling to bring all ages together in our collective response to aging and older Vermonters.
