At 11:15 AM on Saturday, June 1st, Governor Peter Shumlin cut the ribbon to officially celebrate the reopening of the Barnard General Store. Yes. It was quite warm, but the enthusiasm of the crowd was even warmer. After the ribbon cutting and short speeches by the president of the Barnard Community Trust, Rick Carbin, Teo Zagar (who read a letter written by Senator Patrick Leahy for the occasion), and the governor, everyone went into the store and enjoyed what the store has to offer. It was a happy day for all.
