City's day offers new elements, old favorites

Posted on August 22, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — There are few truly new elements in for the 30th annual Vergennes Day, which this year falls on Saturday, Aug. 25.

But when an annual event works well enough to still draw thousands to Vergennes after three decades, organizers believe it’s not a bad idea to rely on its tried-and-true formula — kid-friendly attractions, a road race, the Lions’ Club chicken barbecue, music, horse-drawn wagon rides, car shows and, of course, the Rotary Club’s Rubber Duckie Race.

Editorial: Gov. scores points but loses university's trust: a poor bargain for Vt.

Posted on August 18, 2011 |
By Emerson K. Lynn
