You may recognize her from her weekday lunchtime walks, picking up unsightly trash as she passes.  “I don’t know what made me start doing it. I just didn’t like the look of it so, while I walk, I pick up the trash around town.” She walks daily from the Bank to Norwich and back down Central Street.  Even in the snow.

This Labor Day, you’ll see Trudy Law in Northfield’s Labor Day Parade as Grand Marshal. And did she hesitate when asked?

Yes… I thought about it. I’m not one to be the center of attention. And then I couldn’t say no to it because it’s such an honor.

So she talked it over with her husband who said, “You’re going to do it, right? Oh definitely do it.”

Riding with her? “My husband and (hopefully) my two granddaughters.”

Trudy is virtually a Northfield native, born in Montpelier. She’s been with Northfield Savings bank for 16 years.  Active within the community, Trudy has long been involved with Safety Day and Green Up Day. And, of course, her daily lunch-hour walks. And has she ever found anything valuable among the discarded cigarette butts? “I found a Norwich University student’s class ring on Main Street” and he was happy to get it back. She made sure that he did.

Labor Day weekend will be big for Trudy for several reasons. “I’m retiring that Friday and turn 65 on Saturday.”

Then she’ll ride in the Parade as Grand Marshal.  “It’s a great honor. It really is. And I thank whoever nominated me and those (on the Committee) who voted for me.”
