A group of Vermont citizens will gather with flags and notes of appreciation on Thursday, February 10 from 3 pm to 5 pm at the intersection of VT 100 and VT 108 in Stowe to show appreciation for American and Canadian truckers.
“Our Canadian and American truckers keep our country moving,” said organizer Michael Valdez of Stowe. “They transport materials needed for our everyday life. They bring materials that we use to build shelter, and they transport essentials to survive: food and clothing.”
“We literally could not live without Truckers doing their jobs,” said Valdez, a member of the Vermont GOP state committee and himself a professional taxi driver. “Yet, they are often taken for granted and are often under-appreciated.”
And speaking of waving flags…..
Brian Judd, a Barre City Council candidate who organized two high-profile flag raisings in his hometown this year, will debut an online news program tomorrow.
The Brian Judd Show will air at 7 AM tomorrow on Facebook. The address is facebook.com/BrianAlanJudd.
Judd, a U.S. Navy veteran, Barre native, and son of a prominent local businessman, organized the raising of a large American flag on 9/11 and Veterans’ Day – both times after initial pushback from the Progressive-led City Council.
