FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Selectboard on Dec. 18 voted to dedicate the 2019 Town Report to recently deceased Ferrisburgh dairy farmer John Pierce, whose service to the town included tenures as chairman of its selectboard and planning commission.

Family members said Pierce, who was 84, knew before he died earlier in the day on Dec. 18 that the selectboard planned to honor him that evening.

Pierce, a Hinesburg native, moved to North Ferrisburgh in 1964, when he bought a dairy farm there. He ran the farm until about 2000.
