Vermonters celebrating our homeland

To the Editor:

Concluding another wonderful Vermont History Expo at the Tunbridge World's Fairgrounds (June 21-22), some Vermonters stood and sang together:

"These green hills and silver waters

Are my home - they belong to me,

And to all her sons and daughters,

May they be strong and forever free."

(from These Green Mountains: the Vermont State Song)

Where else would we gather to do this?

Word was that this labor of love for Vermont may be ending for lack of funding. Vermont strong says No!

A Vermont Expo could group displays, presentations, discussions and grassroots conversations about aspects of Vermont that are important to Vermonters, such as community, economy, environment and heritage - then, now and always.

(Moving it to the Champlain Valley Exposition grounds in Essex Junction would be too far away for too many of us.)
