REMINDER: free COVID Boosters and Flu shots Friday 28 Jan




COVID19 in its various forms is still all around us! And until we’re all protected, it’s bound to stay that way! Protection comes in many forms: getting vaccinated, surviving a recent COVID infection, social distancing, hand washing, masking indoors. The most effective ways are the first two measures: vaccination and surviving an infection. But vaccination, with or without an infection, results in fewer deaths, fewer hospitalizations, and a lot fewer days feeling rotten, missing school, missing work, losing money. Tackling this infection by ‘being vaccinated’ means a primary series of two shots, and a booster shot five months later. So, here’s what’s being offered right in our neighborhood:

3:00 – 6:00 PM, This Friday 28 January at the West Fairlee Town Offices, **870

VT Route 113 (across the road from the West Fairlee Volunteer Fire Department).

FREE, NO PRE-REGISTRATION! (Bring your COVID Vaccination Card, *but if you

can’t find your card, come anyway!!)


Adult and Pediatric Pfizer vaccines.

For kids: doses 1, 2

For Adults: doses 1, 2, Booster

Open to all, 5 Years and older, from West Fairlee, Vershire, Corinth and all neighboring towns


Yes, you can get the flu shot and the booster safely at the same time. Or choose to get one or the other!

Remember, Flu can also be a debilitating, and sometimes deadly, disease.

And it’s still “Flu Season.”

Amendments to ATV Ordinance Proposed

The Town of Vershire, under the authority granted in 24 V.S.A. Chapter 59, 24 V.S.A. 2291(4), and 23 V.S.A. 3510, has adopted amendments to its civil ordinance regulating the time, manner and location of operation of all-terrain vehicles on all town highways.  The amendments, clarifying the definition of what an “ATV” and revising the speed limit for all ATV’s, were adopted on January 7, 2022. The Purpose of this ordinance is to protect the health and safety of operators of all-terrain vehicles and of the residents of the Town and to protect the animals, property and environment of the Town.  Under the ordinance all ATV’s must be registered and operated according to the requirements of 23 V.S.A Chapter 31, and have a valid Vermont license plate attached to the ATV.

ATV’s will obey all traffic devices.  Speed limit for operation on town highways is 25 miles per hour. Time of day and year is also regulated. A petition may be filed under 24 V.S.A. 1973, the statute that governs the taking effect of this ordinance. 24 V.S.A. 1973 states, in part:

  • “An ordinance or rule adopted by a municipality may be disapproved by a vote of a majority of the qualified voters of the municipality voting on the question at an annual or special meeting duly warned for the purpose, pursuant to a petition signed and submitted in accordance with subsection (b) of this section.
  • A petition for a vote on the question of disapproving an ordinance or rule shall be signed by not less than five per cent of the qualified voters of the municipality, and presented to the legislative body or the clerk of the municipality within 44 days following the date of adoption of the ordinance or rule by the legislative body.
  • When a petition is submitted in accordance with subsection (b) of this section, the legislative body shall call a special meeting within 60 days from the date of receipt of the petition, or include an article in the warning for the next annual meeting of the municipality if the annual meeting falls within the 60-day period, to determine whether the voters will disapprove the ordinance or rule.”

A full copy of the ordinance is available at the Vershire Town office, 6894 VT Route 113, Vershire, VT 05079.  Comments and questions should be directed to Gene Craft, Town Clerk, either by mail or by calling 685-2227.  A copy can be downloaded by following this link; ATV Amendments Proposed
