Congratulations to the Brandon girls and Rutland Town sixth-grade boys for winning their respective divisions in the 25th Ed Glodzik fifth- and sixth-grade basketball tourney held this past week. The Rutland Rec teams, who were runners-up, are also to be commended for a great season and exciting final games.
Once again the West Rutland Boosters Club did a great job running the tourney and having PEG-TV Channel 15 broadcast the game live, with Jack Healy as broadcaster as icing on the cake.
Next year if you have the opportunity, catch the action.
South Station will be missed
Thank you to Bill, Charlotte and all the staff for the wonderful meals and parties that so many of us enjoyed at South Station over the years. Your hard work was appreciated by all of us who enjoyed a meal at your wonderful restaurant.
It is sad to think that we will no longer be able to go there.
The history of the building itself, the warm greeting upon arrival, and the excellent service always made it a special place to dine.
Best wishes to you in the future.
We will miss you.
and PETER SHAW
