Honoring Leon Lestage
Saturday, May 7, 11 a.m. ― 4 p.m.

Leon Lestage

A celebration of life for Leon Lestage will be held at the Catamount Country Club, located at 1400 Mountain View Road, Williston.

Leon worked for many years at Champlain Valley Union High School as a bus driver and in the athletic department. He knew many students from Charlotte. During the mid 70s to 80s, he volunteered on the Hinesburg Fire Department but also assisted the town of Charlotte with their needs. He was one of the early volunteers on Iroquois Rescue that covered Charlotte.

Leon had many friends in the town of Charlotte. He also owned a hat and T-shirt-printing business and set up as a vendor at the Charlotte Flea Market on Rt. 7 when it was in existence. Leon’s grandson, Tyler Lestage, is a current resident of Charlotte.

This is the party Leon would have planned. Celebrate his life the way he would have wanted. Come and share your stories. Leon’s family welcomes you.

Little Free Library
Thanks to the carpentry skills of an Eagle Scout and the generosity of a member of the Senior Center, the Little Free Library is up and running at the Charlotte Grange. Here is food for thought for children, birth through teenage. Tell the children you know to head over to the Grange and find a book.
