VERGENNES — Each year a Vergennes Union High School senior is chosen for the DAR Good Citizen’s Award by faculty members nominating three seniors, and then the senior class elects one of those three as their Good Citizen.
We are proud to announce that the 2017 DAR Good Citizen is Brandon Cousino. He is the son of Kirk and Lynn Cousino of Ferrisburgh. Congratulations Brandon!
I have long been encouraged by Middlebury College’s commitment to reducingcarbon emissions and setting “carbon neutrality” as a target. This is indeed setting a higher standard for academic institutions and indeed all consumers of energy.
Something there is about the human condition that seeks to review the past year lived as we embrace the new. Newspapers, magazines and digital blogs create Top 10 stories, Top 20 photos, Top 12 best digital gadgets — whatever the meme might be. The goal is to get readers to pause a moment, think and reflect on what we might have learned so that we might create a better world (or at least better ourselves) in the year to come.

Dear Members of the Community, The Middlebury Community Players Board would like to extend a very warm thank-you to the many members of the community who came to see “The Nutcracker’s Adventure” during the first weekend in December at MUHS. Thirty-two local children danced and sang the show into our hearts.
