Something Borrowed Postponed

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, it became necessary for the Saint Albans Museum to postpone our second annual “Something Borrowed” alternative wedding show/flea market, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 8. Last year, we welcomed hundreds of brides/grooms-to-be and their families into the Bliss Room to find re-purposed, DIY, up-cycled, and gently used wedding items – and our goal is the same for this special event in 2017.

We plan to re-schedule for late summer/early fall, and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to secure a new date with our community vendors. Thank you again for your interest in Something Borrowed, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

USCIS to Welcome 44 New US Citizens at SAM

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)  will present 44 citizenship candidates to the Honorable John M. Conroy, U.S. Magistrate Judge, U.S. District Court Vermont District, during a naturalization ceremony at the St. Albans Museum this Thursday. Judge Conroy will preside over the ceremony and administer the Oath of Allegiance to America’s newest citizens.

The citizenship candidates represent the following 18 countries:  Australia, Bhutan (12), Bosnia-Herzegovina, Burma, Canada (11), People’s Republic of China, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Russia, Somalia, Sweden, Thailand, and Uzbekistan.

Judge Conroy and St. Albans Museum’s Executive Director, Alex Lehning, will provide welcoming remarks to the new U.S. citizens and guests. Students from the Bellows Free Academy Chorus will perform musical selections.

Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is conferred upon foreign citizens or nationals after fulfilling the requirements established by Congress. After naturalization, foreign-born citizens enjoy nearly all the same benefits, rights and responsibilities that the Constitution gives to native-born U.S. citizens, including the right to vote.
