By Kathryn Flagg

By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — During the 1990s, Vermont saw an influx of refugees resettled from countries on the Balkan region of southeastern Europe — specifically Bosnia, Serbia and Albania. Those refugees, many of whom are now firmly established in the state, continue to observe traditions and memories from their home countries.

The Vermont Folklife Center hopes to share its collection of traditions and stories of Vermonters from the Balkans with a new website, funded by a $5,000 grant that it recently received from the Vermont Humanities Council.
