VERGENNES — Zoos, cities, mythical titans, diners, castles and fortresses, a bear and a chicken, a home with an outdoor slide, and a beach-scene reminder of summer greeted Saturday visitors of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Vergennes on Armory Lane.
All 34 of those tabletop creations were made of Legos or pieces related to the plastic building blocks created by Danish toymakers in the mid-20th century.

THE BROTHER-SISTER TEAM ON Caroline and David Larocque of East Middlebury won the mixed-grade prize at the Bixby Library on Monday in the Lego Contest and Exhibit for “The Doctor’s House.” The Bixby and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes sponsored the event.
