Where I Come From

I have lived in Middletown Springs for
more than 40 years. I am not a native
Vermonter, but my mother was. She was
born and raised in Poultney, the daughter
of a Welshman whose family had come
to this area to work in the slate industry
Since she was so proud of her Vermont
roots, it seemed only natural that I would
attend UVM. After graduation with a
degree in math, I returned to New Jersey.

This Changed Everything

One day I found a Vermont tourism ad
in a Sunday newspaper. The picture was
of a beautiful Vermont hillside. The slogan
touched a chord in my heart and I realized
that Vermont was “home”. I kept that ad for
many years (In fact, it may still be in a box
in my storeroom).
