VERGENNES — The students of the Vergennes Union High School class of 2010 were not alone as they marched into the standing-room-only school gymnasium last Friday evening. The institution’s 50th graduating class was followed by more than half the members of the class of 1960 — VUHS’s first graduating class.

“There were 60 members in the class of 1960, and it is fitting that they should share the birthday milestone of 50 years this evening,” said Ann Sullivan, a former VUHS English teacher and 1960 alumna who took the floor to wish the students well.

MONTPELIER — The Mount Abraham Union High School baseball team started 2010 without its No. 1 pitcher, the 2009 Metro Conference Player of the Year, and another three-year starter, also the team’s 3-4-5 hitters: They were among the six seniors who graduated from the 2009 squad that won the Metro title and helped Mount Abe reach the Division II final for the fourth straight year.

And when the Eagles didn’t score a run in three scrimmages during a preseason trip to Florida, longtime Mount Abe coach Jeff Stetson admitted even he was not sure about his team’s prospects.

MONKTON — Sure, Pete Sutherland is busy. When the Monkton folk musician isn’t stringing together teaching gigs, concerts and artists’ residencies, there’s a good chance he’s setting up shop at a benefit barn dance, strumming away at any of the myriad string instruments he handles almost effortlessly.

The benefit dances and charity concerts come with the territory, he explained.

“If you’re going to be a community musician, you have to make time for that,” Sutherland said.

BRISTOL — Erin Swigart popped up onto the toe stops of her well-worn, broken-in roller skates. She dashed forward on tiptoe, almost like a dancer preparing for a ballet leap, and then the eight wheels on her skates hit the concrete floor of the Bristol Recreation Club’s hockey rink, and she was off.
