Over 80 children participated free of charge in the annual Head Start Soccer Clinic held at Willow Park in Bennington throughout September. Bennington County Head Start supports children between the ages of three and five and their families with locations in Manchester, North Bennington, Pownal and Shaftsbury. Their mission is to provide them with the building blocks necessary to succeed in learning, parenting and life. To learn more, visit ucsvt.org or call Beth Wallace at 802-442-3686, extension 135.
