Legislative breakfasts to begin Feb. 2
ADDISON COUNTY — Bridport Grange No. 303 and the Addison County Farm Bureau have organized a series of breakfasts and lunches at which local lawmakers and residents can discuss what is going on in Montpelier during the legislative session.
The 2015 Legislative Breakfast series will debut on Monday, Feb. 2, and include a March 23 luncheon with Gov. Peter Shumlin.
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. As has been the custom, the breakfasts will rotate between various public venues throughout the county.
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.
The series this year will also feature two lunches, both beginning at noon and ending at 1:45 p.m. In addition to the March 23 Governor’s Luncheon at the American Legion in Vergennes, the series will feature an Agriculture Lunch on March 30 at the Community Hall in Bridport. See the chart for the full schedule.
Purchase of breakfast or lunch is not required to attend but helps the hosts to defray the cost of opening their hall.
The legislative breakfast series will finish on June 1 with a post-session wrap-up at the Bridport Grange Hall.
In addition to the Grange and Farm Bureau, the series is supported by the Addison County Chamber of Commerce and the Addison County Regional Planning Commission.
