For the last several years the Middlebury Rotary has erected American flags around town on national holidays. Local businesses, Rotarians, and other supportive citizens have underwritten the flag project. This year an additional commemoration was begun — installation on national holidays of American flags with veteran plaques (name, rank, branch of service, and if served in combat) in Cannon Park. Over 50 veterans have been honored with these flags and plaques. Middlebury Rotary member Tim Hollander conceived the idea.
HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS

So, please be patient with photographer Trent Campbell and me.
We are doing our best to show up at your team’s games this fall, really. But it’s been difficult.
To start with, many local high school sports teams have opened on the road. For example, two teams we haven’t seen yet, Mount Abraham and Middlebury field hockey, played four of their first five and five of their first six games, respectively, away from their home turf.
Those other two games? Wednesdays.
