FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen and former town fire chief Bob Jenkins, still an active officer of the Ferrisburgh Volunteer Fire Department, recently decided to step down from the selectboard.

Jenkins’ letter of resignation simply cites “personal reasons.” On Thursday, he said he enjoyed many aspects of his service on the board, but preferred to devote his time and energy to the fire department.

“I can get back to my firefighting, and that’s my life, anyway,” Jenkins said.

FERRISBURGH — On Tuesday, many Ferrisburgh Central School teachers wore the same ID tag while they supervised the events like egg-balancing relay races and Zumba dancing during the school’s annual Field Days, which celebrated the fast-approaching end of the school year.

Those ID tags bore the photo and name of FCS special educator Alice Walker, and they were celebrating the Charlotte resident’s 23-year tenure at the school — the end of which is also fast approaching.

That feat occurred a little more than 25 year ago, when museum co-founders Cohn and Robert Beach Jr. spearheaded the dismantling of Panton’s old stone schoolhouse on Lake Road, then relocated and reassembled it — piece by piece — at the then-barren, four-acre LCMM campus.
