The students and teachers have had a few days of school to start the academic year and now the Labor Day holiday weekend is upon us. The Notch will be hopping! Come enjoy the 9/5 events: Shakespeare Alive at noon, Wilder House BBQ starting at 12:30, and Folk and Blues Concert from 2:00 – 5:00. More Folk and Blues on Sunday at the same time. If you would like to see the cheese-making process, stop at the Cheese Factory from 10:00 – 1:00 on Saturday. In addition to sampling the various cheeses, you can take a walk through the small upstairs museum and even see a DVD on the history of cheese-making in VT.
I can’t begin to make note of the many activities associated with VAST BLAST that will be held at Jackson Gore on 9/12. All VAST members are invited to this Annual Meeting sponsored by Windsor County Snowmobile Clubs. It is family friendly and includes industry demonstrations, snowmobile expo exhibitor area, BBQ lunch, formal dinner banquet with live music and dancing as well as a variety of family adventure activities. Additional plans include a DHART landing, silent auction, benefit scramble-style golf tournament, and a 50/50 raffle. Something for everyone!
Also on 9/12, from 7:30 – 9:30 PM you can enjoy a Fiddle Concert featuring Freeman Corey and Friends at Pingree Barn, 4140 Rte 100 in Plymouth for a donation of $5.00. You will need to bring your own chair and probably some bug spray because the warm weather is keeping these little critters alive. There are a few openings for the catered meal at 6:00 PM that costs $10.00, but you will need to make a reservation for the dinner by calling 802-353-7969 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please add to your calendar the 13th Annual Benefit Auction at Bethany Birches Camp, the proceeds from which pay for lots of kids to go to camp! Donations of new items are needed and you may call the office at 802-672-5220, or email email@example.com. Since this is BBC’s 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend, I understand you can spend the entire weekend and camp out in a shelter. There will be a bonfire and s’mores, gaga tournament, music, stories, and much more. For more information about the Benefit Auction, visit http://www.bethanybirches.org/benefit-auction/
