Picnic honored East Middlebury church members

EAST MIDDLEBURY — At noon on Sunday, June 12, it rained on the East Middlebury Community Picnic. In spite of the cold, wet day, a total of 71 people representing 40 households enjoyed spending time eating and chatting together under the tent behind the Sarah Partridge Community House.
Fire District No. 1, East Middlebury, honored the East Middlebury Methodist Women for years of service to the community. These women hold well-attended bake sales to raise money for both local charities and church activities. They also visit those who are sick or who need help in some way.
Local businesses continue to underwrite the picnic event. Monetary donations were made by ABC Storage, Addison County Commission Sales, Canopy Timber, Goodro Lumber, Murphy’s Metals, Newton Electric and R&M Truck Repair. Food donations were made by: Downhome Deli, Maplefields of East Middlebury, Middlebury Sweets, The Waybury Inn and Craig Bingham. The tent was loaned by Eric Murray. Door prizes were donated by Goodro Lumber, Toby and Renita Welch, Jack Brown, and Susie and Richard Martell.
Volunteers too numerous to mention helped with the setup, meal service and cleanup. Local politicians turned out. Many children were in attendance. The group enjoyed some good laughs and decided it was two hours well spent.
