Prayer on Brandon town green Prayercmyk Stand people_CMYK.jpg

They might think some out-of-towners were exercising their freedom of religion, but choose to steer clear. But they would be wrong.

BRANDON — Ginger Gould, who grew up in Forest Dale and still lives there, says there’s nothing better than a refreshing dip in a cool Vermont stream on a hot summer’s day.
