Vermont Veterans’ Fishing Derby


BENNINGTON - The Bennington Elks Lodge 567 sponsored a fishing derby and picnic for the veterans and members of Vermont Veterans’ Home on Sunday, June 22. An enjoyable time was had by all of the veterans and members who participated, to include family, staff, and volunteers at the event.

The Veterans’ Home wishes to heartily thank the Elks for their steadfast support of our veterans and home. The largest fish of the day was 21 inches, and as you would imagine, the "fish stories" continue.
