Photo Gallery: Gov. Shumlin celebrates 25,000 'I Am Vermont Strong' License Plates Sold!
Thursday, April 5 - 12:51 p.m. - Today, Governor Shumlin celebrated the sale of the 25,000th 'I Am Vermont Strong' license plate! Check out the photos below.
The $25 plate can be affixed to the front of most vehicles or bought as souvenirs. The goal is to sell 50,000 plates to raise $1 million for the Disaster Relief Fund, and the Governor bought the first plate in February to present to the Corliss family of Berlin, whose mobile home was destroyed by flood waters. Today the Governor bought the 25,000th plate, presenting it to Barre Fire Department Capt. Keith Cushman and thanking all emergency responders across the state for their help during the 2011 storms.
