Dom's Spotify Playlist: Sept. 22: Fall back

“Never Come Down” by Brave Shores: Fall is in the air and it’s back-to-school time. Every back-to-school season deserves a few tight, fun little pop songs to remember it by. This one is a good song to strut to – it builds well, has an air of mischief and is just plain fun. Every student needs a few songs in the walkman (or its modern equivalent) to boost the old confidence.

Pumpkin Soup

This rich soup is a great autumn dish frequently requested by my husband. The coriander adds a lemony flavor, blending beautifully with the sweetness of the pumpkin. Rustic traditionally fermented sourdough bread is perfect for dipping and makes the soup a satisfying meal.

Stacy Luckensmeyer | WVC’s adult education program is re-imagined

Rufus Woods and I met up over coffee recently and found ourselves swapping stories of different organizations and businesses locally that had reinvented themselves and why. For some, this came after recognizing a need to simplify, to return to their original mission so they could accomplish more.

When we discovered this common thread, we realized the importance of sharing these stories of re-innovation and growth to inspire and embolden others to do the same.

Go! Spotify Playlist: Bon Voyage!

“Rio” by Hey Marseilles:This song is just plain fun, but also complex and soaring. It will make you want to dance.

You’re doing a great job Alli!
