NEWPORT, VT - Sunday, June 10, 2012, marked the last day of Rev. Martha Peckâ€™s 23-year tenure at The United Church of Newport.
The church, situated on Third Street, ministers to the Newport areaâ€™s United Church of Christ and United Methodist Church populations.
Though she started with three co-ministers, Rev. Peck has been tending her flock solo for the past four years.
MORGAN - It was a bitter-sweet day for Morgan students Friday, their last day of school. They were sad as the E. Taylor Hatton School is closing, but happy as many are looking forward to attending Derby Elementary School.
Morgan voters decided at the March Town Meeting to send the 34 kindergarten through sixth grade students to Derby rather than keeping the school open.
Principal Miriam Benson said the transition has gone smoothly and now itâ€™s not that big of a deal. "We're all moving on and itâ€™s good, but weâ€™re all going to miss Morgan, of course.â€ť
