Several communities that were devastated by the
flood this summer are marking their comeback with winter light celebrations. This Saturday in Waterbury, children and artists
are parading through downtown carrying lanterns. And next weekend the towns in the Deerfield
River Valley are cranking up their holiday lights.
The town of Dover is dependent on tourism driven largely by nearby Mount Snow, and, in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, the Select Board there has decided to use some proceeds from the local one-percent sales tax to fund a marketing campaign.
