Burlington businessman, philanthropist, and now centenarian Antonio Pomerleau was celebrated last week at a dedication ceremony for the Pomerleau Community Waterfront Campus that will replace the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center on the Burlington waterfront. Pomerleau, who turned 100 last week, sported a hat with the message: “100 and still the best looking guy in the room,” alongside Gov. Phil Scott and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger. Last month, Pomerleau gave $1 million to the capital campaign for the new sailing center currently under construction. The center serves more than 6,000 people annually including Burlington school students.
