Derby Line’s Sparkling Day

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Staff Derby Line, VT

Started for some with a driz­zle, kids us­ing a real fire hose to ring a bell, but for all in Derby Line last Satur­day, the day ended in a sparkling fire­works dis­play seen from miles around.

The an­nual Com­mu­nity Day had once the look and smell of small town fairs of years past. If on this side, at Border­fest, (both events should merge in the opin­ion of this news­pa­per) we have the SQ ex­hibit­ing, on the Ver­mont side it is all the ap­pa­ra­tus of Home­land Se­cu­rity. We have hand­i­craft sell­ers, theirs are a bit more lo­cal than ours. The only thing miss­ing on our side of the bor­der is the gi­ant Un­cle Sam.

The lu­mi­nes­cent bal­loon at twi­light was a sight to be­hold. See pic­ture p. 16.
