STARKSBORO — On May 19 at 5 a.m., the three-man Starksboro road crew raised their morning cups of coffee and celebrated a brand new day. On that Thursday, Road Foreman Tom Estey and crewmembers Paul Porter and Tony Porter began work out of the new town garage, completed on time and on budget.

“I still pinch myself every once in a while and go, ‘Yeah, it’s real,’” said Estey.

The 7,800-square-foot garage just north of the town’s Route 116 fire station is worth a gander (see open house information below).

STARKSBORO — The historic Starksboro Village Meeting House returns to the 1860s on Sunday, June 12, at 11 a.m. Chaplain Michael Blakeslee of the Second Vermont Volunteer Infantry, accompanied by Lois Burbank, will lead a recreation of a typical Civil War-era church service.
