Where the long lake rests

  • This town lies on the southeast edge
  • of the county. Circled round the lake
  • in a horseshoe shape, below the
  • mighty mountain west
  • and rolling hills to the east.
  • The striking views offer reprieve
  • and peace. The lake’s waves
  • shimmer in summer’s sun with
  • various types of boats. Some folks lie
  • in the shade to take a break
  • from the stress of a long work day.
  • But when old man winter arrives
  • that water freezes deep for those
  • to house their fishing shacks.
  • A haven for recreation, it’s
  • more than just a stop on Route 12.
  • Folks here work hard to stay safe
  • and to keep Vermont Strong.
