“It’s a museum exhibit,” he said. “You’re not supposed to touch anything.”

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — At the suggestion of Ferrisburgh Historical Society member Gail Blasius, the Ferrisburgh selectboard on May 6 voted to take over sponsorship and organization of the town’s annual Ferrisburgh Day celebration.

Blasius told the board the day, modeled after the town’s former “Good Neighbor Days” from the 1950s through 1970s, did not really fit into the society’s mission and also stretched its organizational ability.
