By Kim Haigis et al.



As the school year winds down, we would like to thank our community for supporting the Commodore Booster Club Concession Stand. We appreciate that so many people volunteered their time, provided delicious food, and were our loyal customers. 

This year your support made it possible for the club to provide a little over $17,000 in financial support for many Vergennes Union High School teams and improve their outdoor facilities.

VERGENNES — A search committee is working already to find an interim principal to replace departing Vergennes Union High School Co-principal Ed Webbley, who resigned his post in mid-May after eight years at VUHS to take a similar position at The Danville School in Caledonia County.

At its regular meeting on Monday, its first since Webbley’s resignation, the VUHS board affirmed the decision to seek an interim rather than a full-time replacement.

Vice chairman Neil Kamman said it’s late in the school-hiring season to find a permanent replacement.

By Andy Kirkaldy



 

VERGENNES — The rematch is on for Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

Because the No. 2 Vergennes Union High School softball team got past No. 7 Fair Haven in a Saturday quarterfinal, 5-2, the 16-2 Commodores will host undefeated defending Division II champion BFA-Fairfax, the No. 3 seed this year, in a Wednesday semifinal.

In 2013, the Bullets earned their second straight crown at the Commodores’ expense, 4-1, and the Commodores probably have known all along they would see BFA and ace pitcher Kayla Mathieu again.
