What a wonderful evening taking a dry kayaking trip around the lake and our islands. Cathy Frank and Margy Holden took two years to circumnavigate the entire lake and at times they got wet. They shared their exciting and sometimes harrowing episodes along with lake history, geology, and geography. They also have a book that has listed many wonderful kayaking trips for you to take including maps and directions called "A Paddler's Guide to the Champlain Valley."

South Hero Class of 53-54On August 4, 2017, The South Hero Historical Society presented seven members of the Folsom School 8th grade classes of 1953 and 1954 sharing memories from their school days together. They started first grade at the Hill Road School and continued together through 8th grade at the new Folsom School which was built in 1949. These eight classmates have stayed close friends for at least 70 years and have fun stories to share showing how school was different and similar in the past. Some of you young ones may be shocked or pleasantly surprised at what you learn.
