ST. ALBANS — More than 75 people gathered in the Bliss Room at the St. Albans Museum to honor the legacy of the former Franklin Grand Isle United Way and celebrate the almost $400,000 raised in 2015 to support local programs and volunteer recruitment.

“We’re thrilled with the turnout,” Martha Maksym, executive director of United Way of Northwest Vermont, said. “This was our opportunity to really celebrate the legacy that Franklin Grand Isle United Way has had in the community over its history and also to try to look forward to say what can we do together as United Way of Northwest Vermont. So we’re thrilled with the support.”
