Benefit Concert Saturday in Honor of Guen Gifford 

Last fall, I wrote a blog post about Burlington lawyer and activist Guen Gifford (pictured) who was killed in a paragliding accident on November 1. Guen, who was only 37, was a passionate activist, as many who knew her remarked at her memorial service. From 2001-2007, she was on the board of the Peace & Justice Center, and she served for a time as board chair.

The PJC is struggling financially right now — Seven Days reported on their trials last month ("Peace and Justice Center Fights to Survive" 1/20/10). On Saturday, February 20, singer/songwriter Catie Curtis is appearing at a benefit concert for the PJC at Higher Ground. The benefit is being held in Guen's honor.

Tickets are $20 in advance, and $23 on the day of show (tomorrow). You can purchase them at PJC, or by clicking here. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Show starts at 7 p.m.

If you want to celebrate a fearless and dynamic local activist who died way too young, this is a good way to do it.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
