Miss Vermont will be attending; Miss Vermont’s Outstanding Teen has another commitment and will not be able to attend.

We’ve asked Lt. Governor Phil Scott, he rides and he’s running for governor and his office is scheduling it.

Several members have said they’d like to see Gina Bullard from WCAX attend and have even offered her a ride. Let’s make this happen.
