ADDISON COUNTY — The sponsors of the annual Legislative Breakfast series have announced two changes to this year’s schedule of weekly gatherings of Addison County lawmakers and residents.
The Feb. 11 breakfast scheduled for 7 a.m. in Bristol at the American Legion has been changed to a noon luncheon that will feature an appearance by Gov. Peter Shumlin. Also, the previously announced March 11 Governor’s Luncheon scheduled for the Bridport Grange Hall has been changed to a 7 a.m. breakfast to be held at the Whiting Town Hall.
The Bridport Grange No. 303 and Addison County Farm Bureau will kick of the 2013 legislative breakfast series next Monday, Feb. 4, at the Grange Hall in Bridport. The legislative breakfast series has enjoyed a long tradition in Addison County, offering residents a weekly opportunity to personally meet and talk with their state representatives and senators on legislation being debated in Montpelier.
All of the breakfasts start at 7 a.m., with the program beginning at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 8:45 a.m.
In addition to the Feb. 11 Governor’s Luncheon in Bristol, the series will include one other noontime gathering — the Ag Lunch on April 1 at the Community Hall in Bridport. Both luncheons begin at noon and end at 1:45 p.m.
Purchase of breakfast or lunch is not required to attend but helps the hosts to defray the cost of opening their hall.
