Lifelong resident of the Mad
River Valley, who served with
distinction during World War II
Alden Bettis grew up in Vermont in the
days before the Rural Electrification Administration brought power to the hill
farms in Vermont. He's seen quite a few
changes in his lifetime—light bulbs,
the Model_T, skiing, and television.
