Some Green Mountain diners at last year's MapleFest pancake breakfast.
In addition to the Spring Open House activities that our admissions folks have been working so hard to put together for this Saturday, Poultney will hold its annual MapleFest. MapleFest is a statewide event honoring the sugaring tradition in Vermont, and the Poultney Chamber of Commerce and the Poultney Downtown Revitalization Committee (among others) have put together a great schedule of events for the 29th.
Things start early at the Methodist Church on Main Street with a pancake breakfast from 8 - 11am -- COLLEGE VOLUNTEERS WELCOME FROM 7am ON (contact Jesse). The Stonebridge will be the base of operations for the day at Rt. 30 and Main St. where you can find more info about all the stuff going on -- wagon rides, art raffles, baking contest, sugar house tours, deals at area businesses, demonstrations, and more. Family nature walks will leave the Stonebridge at 1:30 with GMC's own Michael Blust.
