FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh Grange 539 recently honored Carrie Ann Barrows as its 2020 Community Citizen.

Barrows’ efforts made this year’s Vergennes Union High School graduates a memorable one by placing their senior pictures on the oval in front of the Vergennes Union High School.

Barrows has always been active in promoting sports programs for all ages in the Vergennes area school system.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools and school programs were cancelled for this year. Barrows approached the Vergennes Union High School principal with the suggestion of having the senior pictures displayed on the oval in front of the high school. The school sent letters for permission to display pictures on the oval and received favorable replies. Barrows then canvassed people for funds needed for this project. A local business chipped in and the pictures went up. 

The members of Ferrisburgh Grange 539 commended Barrows for her efforts to make this year’s graduation memorable and presented her with a plaque.
