VERGENNES — About a year ago the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes was putting the finishing touches on a roughly $100,000 renovation of its School Street headquarters and had just hired longtime local afterschool program head Jill Strube as its new executive director.

It hoped to attract more young members who otherwise might have nothing better to do after school.

As the 2016-2017 school year began daily club attendance ran between 15 and 18 5th-through-12-graders, and the club’s total membership stood at 75.

VERGENNES — Heavy equipment and fine art don’t always go together like, say, peanut butter and jelly, but on Saturday a steamroller in the Kennedy Brothers parking lot on Main Street in Vergennes lured artists from as far away as Burlington and Barre.
