Doug and David Lantz receive proclamation from Principal Phil Callahan

Last night the Kindergarten Wing of Newport’s Richards School was dedicated to Jim Lantz. Lantz who was the former owner of Harrington’s Jewelers and long time resident of Newport was always interested in Education. Richards’ School Principal Phil Callahan read a proclamation and presented the Lantz family with the gold plaque that will grace the wall in the Jim Lantz wing. Son, Doug Lantz said it is an honor, but one his father would probably shy away from . David Lantz said his dad was always interested in getting the best education for students and was Chair of the School board in Brattleboro prior to the family moving to Newport in 1970.   Jim Lantz passed away on March 17, of this year and was a role model for citizenship
