Shared-use Path Celebrated

Montpelier’s shared-use recreation path formally doubled in length to four miles with the November 8 celebration of a new section along Barre Street. About 100 people gathered at Caledonia Spirits for a ribbon-cutting to mark the completion of Siboinebi path. The group included representatives of the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe, whose language inspired the path’s name. Pronounced see-bo-WEE-neh-bee, Siboinebi means river water in the native American language. Roland Bluto, representing the Abenaki people native to Vermont, was honored to share the official ribbon-cutting with Montpelier Mayor Anne Watson. Photos by Rick McMahan and J. Gregory Gerdel.
