Vergennes Day race to benefit Elderly Services
VERGENNES — The 41st annual Vergennes Day celebration will be held on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. As in previous years, the event will include a pancake breakfast at the Fire Department, The Little City Road Race, more than 55 crafters and vendors, live music on the bandstand, children’s activities, and horse and wagon rides.
The 2023 Vergennes Race Day Coordinator, Scott Gaines, recently announced that Elderly Services would be the recipient of the proceeds and donations from the 2023 race. “We are pleased to support Elderly Services and Project Independence this year and hope to continue to build upon the incredible success we have had in recent years with a growing field of runners and more money raised for our community,” he said.
There are multiple races planned for the day (5K Walk and Run, 10K run, 15K run and a kids fun run). Registration is now open for the race at Vergennes Day Race 2023 (runsignup.com).
“Even if you don’t plan to run, we encourage folks to visit the registration page and hit the donation button to support the work of Elderly Services,” Gaines said.
“We are so grateful for the support of the Vergennes Day organizers and for the financial assistance that will be so helpful in our work to care for our community’s elders and their families,” said Elderly Services Director Kristin Bolton.
