    MENDON — A book about Tropical Storm Irene written and compiled by Mendon residents won an award recently.

    The Mendon Historical Society received an “Award of Merit” from the League of Local Historical Societies at its annual meeting held in Woodstock Nov.2.

    The award, in the category of Publications/Oral History, commended the book “Irene Storms through Mendon: You CAN Get There from Here.”

    Mark Hudson, executive director of the Vermont Historical Society, presented the award saying, “The town of Mendon was severely impacted by Tropical Storm Irene. The Mendon Historical Society recognized the need to record and document the experiences of its townspeople and how they dealt with the disaster in creative and heroic ways. Their personal accounts form the framework of the book.”

    The 50-page book with 60 full color photographs is available for purchase at the Mendon Town Office and several stores and bookshops in the area.
