JAY â€“ â€śService above selfâ€ť has long been Rotary Internationalâ€™s motto. Now, with the assistance of the Newport Rotary Club, that tradition is moving to a new generation of Rotarians, with North Country Union High Schoolâ€™s Interact Club.
Members of the Interact Club and the Newport Rotary Club met at Jay Peak Resort Friday for Interact Clubâ€™s official kickoff. The day included inspirational speeches, time at the resortâ€™s water park and a luncheon.
DERBY â€“ Northeast Kingdom Human Services (NEKHS) is moving forward on its plan to construct a facility in Derby's commercial district on the Crawford Road.
Currently, NEKHS has three locations in the Newport area: one on Dutchess Street in Newport, one on the Lake Road, and the other on Citizens Road in Derby. These locations will be combined into one location in Derby.
Plans are to construct a 30,200-square foot facility with approximately 132 parking places on five acres. A new water and sewer line will be installed along with a fire hydrant.
