Prayer on Brandon town green Prayercmyk Stand people_CMYK.jpg

BRANDON — In today’s more secular society, driving through a picturesque small Vermont town and seeing a large, red banner that says simply “Prayer” in the local park might give one pause. They might think some out-of-towners were exercising their freedom of religion, but choose to steer clear. But they would be wrong.

“We’re there to reach out to the community for prayer with people,” said Richard Brosse, a member of the Forest Dale Wesleyan Church in Brandon. “No pressure, just friendly ministry.”

10 years of feral cats in Brandon cmyk Mei&Izzy_RGB.jpg

BRANDON — Mei Mei Brown is a sucker for cats. A lifelong lover of felines, she is also the driving force behind the Brandon Feral Cat Assistance Program, now celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Thanks to Brown’s diligence and love for the animal, what was once a big problem in Brandon is now under control. Over the last decade, 166 feral, or wild, cats have been trapped, spayed or neutered, and released or adopted.

“Yes, I am the crazy cat lady,” Brown joked in an interview last week.

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — On June 30, Brandon voters approved the establishment of a 1 percent local option tax on sales, meals and rooms, and alcohol, subject to the approval of the town charter, which was also approved.

The option tax measure passed by a vote of 328-132, with two ballots blank or spoiled. The charter was approved by a tally of 358-91.

Before a local option tax can be instituted in Vermont, the Legislature has to accept a change to that town’s charter. In the case of Brandon, this is actually its first charter.
