Monkton firehouse_7562 .jpg

MONKTON — While this week’s windstorm felled many trees and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of Vermonters, it also brought out the best in some people.

Town Clerk Sharon Gomez opened the Monkton Firehouse off State’s Prison Hollow Road as a respite center on Wednesday for those who still didn’t have electricity. Anyone is welcome between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to come take a shower (bring your own towel, please), have a cup of coffee or chicken noodle soup, and play a kids’ game if you like.
