Temporary Officiant Registration Now Online

The Vermont Secretary of State’s Office is pleased to announce a new online Temporary Officiant Registration Portal.  Users can navigate to the portal by clicking the “Temporary Officiant” link at the top of every page of the Vermont Secretary of State Website.

The new portal provides applicants with 24/7 online registration service. The full application process may be completed online, or applications can be printed and mailed. The portal provides additional pertinent information and links for temporary officiants, including a guide to completing the Vermont Department of Health Civil Marriage Certificate.

Vermont’s Temporary Officiant Program has experienced steady growth in popularity with usage increasing 62.86% from 2014 to 2018.  We believe adding the online registration option provides even more availability and ease of use for Vermont civil marriage participants.

23rd ANNUAL MEMORY TREE 2018

The Whiting Volunteer Fire Department established the Whiting Memory tree 23 years ago to honor the memory of Vicki Grandchamp, a Whiting teenager who died in an accident. It has become a community event for all who wish to remember those who have died, by purchasing one or more lights on the memory tree.

How can you participate? Individual lights may be purchased on the Tree in memory of a loved one. Lights are $1, and you may purchase as many as you wish, including more than 1 light per individual. Names of those being remembered will be published, and also posted at the Town Clerk’s Office. Those having more than one bulb purchased will be indicated in this manner: John Doe (3), Jane Doe (2).

November 29th- To be assured of inclusion in the reading of the names ceremony and the Town Report, we need to receive your names and check no later than November 29th. This annual event benefits the Fire Department, adds a beautiful lighted tree to the community and allows you to remember a loved one in a meaningful way. This event has come to provide a “coming together” of the community for an evening of remembering and celebrating.

We hope your family will attend and take part in the brief ceremony.
