The President travelled throughout the State of Vermont viewing the havoc caused by the flood of 1927. Bennington was the last stop as headed back to Washington and the only place he gave a speech.

Coolidge re-enactor, Tracy Messer will be giving the speech. Jennifer Sayles Harville, Coolidge’s great granddaughter will accompany him.

If any one has a recollection of this occasion that has been passed down through the family we encourage them to share them with the audience,
