    Check out our silent auction!!  All proceeds will go towards the VPA Student Scholarship fund. Bidding will open ahead of the Fall meeting, and all items will be available for viewing at the Fall Meeting. The highest bidders will be announced at the Fall Meeting, and the highest bidders will be contacted via email. Many thanks to Jim Marmar, Caroline Kirkpatrick, Jane Kirkpatrick, Randy Pratico, Gary Maravalli, and  Patti Smith for donating items.  

    Please sign up here for a FREE 15- minute chair massage with Beckie Taylor during our meeting. Beckie has a National Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 2005. Beckie shares: " Listening to the needs of my clients is at the core of my practice. With a focus on massage dating back to 2004, my offerings include modalities custom-made for each client, with wide ranges in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Reflexology, Cupping, Reiki, Aromatherapy, and Color Therapy. Home visits for trusted clients are yet another service option. My long-time national certification affords me the ability to care for clients with special conditions including pregnancy, cancer, terminal illness, children and more. Local businesses have benefited as well through on-site chair and table massage for employees, combining team healing with positive intention from employers. Patients, employees, and students at organizations like UVM Medical Center, Saint Michael's College, Champlain College, and more have benefited from the power of my healing touch."
