When asked about her theme for the logo, Arielle said "Fenn Farm was interesting. I had been reading in the paper recently that
Middlebury was considering purchasing it for the land trust. I thought it was very fitting for the
occasion -- that Fenn Farm would be here for so many years -- it would be a good choice for the logo. It's a
beautiful place, and very quaint."
Arielle's logo will be used
for all of our Bicentennial events and memorabilia.
