What is your favorite location, place, building, or spot in Royalton? Why?
I like the library. They are awfully good there. When I was laid up and I couldn't go up the steps they would come and bring 10 books at a time and then come get them and take them away. They picked them out and they were wonderful. They were awfully good.

What do you think makes Royalton unique or different from other places you have lived or visited?
It's a very historic old town. The indians burned it all up once. There's a lot of history to it, it's interesting.

What is the most challenging aspect of life in a small Vermont town like Royalton?
Transportation. I don't drive. I take a bus once a week to West Leb. to do my shopping. It needs more public transportation.

What Royalton resident made a positive difference in your life?
David Ainsworth. He's got a farm down here. He grows the best corn in the world and he always sells it up here to me. He went to school with my son they were good friends. Very nice boy.

What do you want people to know about your town?
It's a very peaceful, pleasant. It's sort of like Anatevka. I think of that when I think of South Royalton.

What is wish for your life? What is a wish for your town?
They need a good motel here. They don't have one for people who are visiting and they need one.
