Marilyn Ginette Hatch-Ruiter, 81, of Groton, Vt. went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 17, 2019 passing away peacefully with her two daughters at her side and her favorite hymn, Amazing Grace, playing next to her.

Many businesses, even in Vermont, are passing on these benefits by giving cash bonuses to their employees. Overall, though, in Vermont things are different. Population is stagnant. Our student population is insufficient for our schools, so they have been forced to consolidate or close.
