PANTON RESIDENT BEN Chamberlain, above right, is congratulated by Vermont Business Magazine publisher John Boutin and Vermont Economic Development Commissioner Lisa Gosselin earlier this month as he is recognized as on of VBM’s “Rising Stars,” Chamberlain is one of 40 winners under the age of 40 who are selected by a panel of judges for their commitment to business growth, professional excellence and involvement in their communities.
Chamberlain is owner of Flying Hammer Construction, which renovated the Park Squeeze in Vergennes earlier this year. He recently donated his time to build a community board for Panton (left). The old one was falling down. Chamberlain, a builder and a member of the town’s Design Review Board, Planning Commission and Town Hall Committee, offered his services free of charge to the town.
