This year, the Vernon Town Clerk’s Office, along with the Vernon Free Library and Vernon Girl Scout Troop #40907 joined forces to organize a “Giving Tree”. The “Giving Tree” was a way for people in the Vernon community to donate gifts and items to those in need. The project was so popular that the Town Clerk’s office quickly ran out of recipient gift tags! Isn’t it great to live in a community that comes together in a big way to help their neighbors and friends?

On a bone-chilling Monday (one of few this year), Vermont Wood Studios staff headed to the Town Hall where the Town Clerk and local Sheriff’s department helped us unload our gifts. From here we let Santa do the rest!
