Grange, Farm Bureau plan legislative breakfasts

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 2017 Legislative Breakfast series will debut on Monday, Feb. 6, and include a March 20 breakfast with Gov. Phil Scott in Middlebury.
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 that traditional Agriculture Lunch, which will be held on April 3 at the Grange Hall in Bridport beginning at noon and ending at 1:45 p.m.
These gatherings have usually taken place on Mondays, when legislators are back in their districts. This year two of the breakfasts will be on Saturdays — Feb. 18 in Vergennes and March 4 in Bristol.
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 5 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.
