By Bridget Dorman
    Neat Repeats, located on Bakery Lane in downtown Middlebury, recently completed its seventeenth year in business.  To date, 2047 grants have been awarded, totaling $1.3 million.  Neat Repeats directors, Linda Waterman and Diane Howlett have seen first hand what these dollars have provided for Addison County and the effect it has had on many local individuals and organizations that have benefitted from these grants.
