Vergennes to host War of 1812 activities
VERGENNES — Mayor Michael Daniels last week updated the city council on plans for an Oct. 12 celebration of the city’s role in the War of 1812.
The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s canal schooner Lois McClure will dock in Vergennes that weekend and be open to the public, and a welcoming event is planned for that Friday afternoon.
Daniels said at a time to be made final on that afternoon — probably between 2 and 4 p.m. — he would give a welcoming address, the Champlain Brass Quintet would play the national anthems of the U.S. and Canada, and speakers would include Lake Champlain Maritime Museum founder Art Cohn, representatives of New York State and Canada, and Gov. Peter Shumlin.
