Students should be able to leave at the end of the night with a completed basket. The cost of the class is $40 and that includes all materials and instruction.
Ed is also interested in offering woodcarving classes and classes in stained glass and is hoping to get enough interest to be able to schedule them. Ed would also like to remind everyone that The Great North Woods Carvers (a wood carving club), meets Monday evenings at 5 p.m., also at E&S Rental. The club is open to everyone with an interest in woodcarving. If you have trouble finding time to carve why not set aside a couple hours every Monday and join us. If you are not a carver, but have interest, you are welcome to attend. We will provide basic safety and carving instructions. For further information please call Ed (Mon, Wed, Fri from 8-5) 752-3625 or any other day from 10am-7pm 449-2210.

Ed has already received his Building Analyst certificate and has just completed his testing for the Residential Building Envelope Whole House Air Leakage Installer certificate. Final results will not be available for a couple weeks, but he feels confident that he has been successful.
These certifications will help Ed help BAREI to fulfill one of its goals of not only helping with the installation of solar thermal (hot water) and PV (photovoltaic) systems but to do education on conservation and all forms of renewable energy. The services of BAREI are offered to any resident of the area, including Dummer, Milan, Berlin, Gorham, Shelburne, and Randolph. They are offered to individuals and families based on interest, order of application and acceptance, and is not financially based. All are welcome.
BAREI, with grants provide by Berlin Better Building and Cimbria Badenhausen, will be completing four solar thermal installations over the next 6 weeks. These installations (called raisers) are fun and educational. At raisers you can learn new skills, have fun and help a neighbor become more energy efficient and independent. At 12:30 there is an informational secession at each Energy Raiser. Feel free to attend all or part of the day or just for the informational meeting.
BAREI is an all volunteer organization and is currently looking to expand its membership. If you have any interest in BAREI, energy conservation, volunteering, or just general questions you can contact Ed Solar (Mon, Wed, Fri from 8-5) at 752-3625.

“I came to the North Country area for the larger part of my clinical rotations because I wanted to work with people in a rural community,” Dustin said. “The barriers to health care in rural areas are well documented, and I would like to do my part in off-setting these obstacles and to improve the health for those individuals in my practice.”
Dustin’s background includes serving as a Licensed Nursing Assistant in a nursing home, as an Emergency Technician in an Emergency Department and a Registered Nurse in an acute Rehabilitation Hospital. She has served clinical rotations at Keene, NH, Lawrence, MA and Massachusetts General in Boston, where her clinical experience included traumatic brain injury and orthopedic rehabilitation. She has treated accident victims and patients with strokes, head traumas, comas and intracranial hematomas. She has also acted as a patient advocate and implemented total patient care through a team nursing process, providing necessary health education training for patients.
Dustin was born in Boston, and currently lives in Berlin with her family. Before coming to Berlin she lived in Fremont, N.H., where she used her certifications in Emergency Medical Technician and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support as a volunteer for the Fremont Fire Department. She enjoys cycling and has been a volunteer rider for the Pan-Mass Challenge, a cycling event raising money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund for research in cancer prevention and treatment for children and adults.
