VERGENNES — It took a journey to two continents for longtime Vergennes Union Elementary School reading specialist and kindergarten teacher Diana Raphael to discover her passion was education.

Raphael, then 21 and just out of Pine Manor College near Boston, traveled to Europe in 1971 for half a year, and from there to Morocco for three months. There she found herself in a village for an extended stay.

City manager warns: Vergennes budget may be a challenge

Posted on June 1, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on May 26 got their first look at a preliminary 2015-2016 general fund budget, and City Manager Mel Hawley said he told council members the adoption process might challenge them this year.

“There’s work to be done,” Hawley said in a phone interview later in the week.

Hawley presented a first budget draft that called for $2,213,085 in spending, an amount that if aldermen adopted it by their June 30 deadline would mean a spending increase of about $125,000, or 6 percent.
