No discriminatory signage


To The Editor:

Dear Customers of the Village Grocery and our Mad River Valley Neighbors,

We have a bulletin board set up on the side of our store for your convenience so that we may share articles and events to better our community.

It is a great way to sell an old set of tires, to let people know of services offered, and to publicly promote upcoming events. Once per month I try to clean off the old news and make way for new news. For the last four to five months I have been collecting quite a few stickers in reference to our local deputy. I feel enough is enough.  

From here on out it will be a policy at our store not to allow any discriminatory signage that demeans any person or group of people based upon race, religion, job type or any other manner.  

Be forewarned that from here on out we will be using our technology to record  the person and vehicle involved that is, in my opinion, harassing one member of our community. Regardless of who a person is, I cannot allow any discrimination or harassment to be allowed at our store. Plain and simple, we are all living in this town  
together and if you have an issue with a person, step up and talk to them directly. Passing around notes was something I learned not to do in elementary school.

Troy Kingsbury
