By the way for Jan. 23
Come fill your belly for a great cause. The New Haven Fire Department will hold a pancake breakfast this Sunday, Jan. 26, 7-10:30 a.m. at the town hall on North Street. This is the department’s 25th year putting on the monthly breakfasts, and to celebrate it will be adding a new item to the menu each month. Items include plain or blueberry pancakes, French toast, pure Vermont maple syrup, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries, coffee, tea and juice.
Did you make a New Years resolution to get to the gym more in 2020? Maybe you promised yourself to give back to your community more this year? The United Way of Addison County has an event that will help you do both. It’s called SpinUnited, and will be held this Sunday, Jan. 26, at Middlebury Fitness, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Spin for an hour or test your endurance and spin for all four (it’s been done). All are welcome — new spinners, experienced spinners and everyone in between. Not the spinning type? Support a spinner by making a donation. Every dollar raised will be invested back into local programs that are making Addison County a healthier place. Sign up or make your donation here: unitedwayaddisoncounty.org/events/spin-united-2020.
The 5 Town Friends of the Arts will present an annual winter open poetry reading on Thursday, Jan. 30, 6:30-8 p.m. at the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol. You’re invited to bring poetry to read aloud, recite or just come, listen and enjoy. Winter is a great time for gathering inside with friends and telling stories, so short (10 minutes or less) stories are welcome as well. This community event is always free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.

Test your home for radon gas — it’s free and can help safeguard your health. More than 52,000 Vermonters have already tested their homes for radon, a radioactive gas that you can’t see or smell. Radon gas enters your home from the surrounding soil and bedrock. It doesn’t matter where your home is or how old it is — it can still have high levels of radon. One out of every seven homes in Vermont has elevated levels of radon and an estimated 50 Vermonters die of lung cancer related to radon every year. But you can reduce radon levels in your home. Request your kit today by emailing your name, mailing address, physical address and phone number to [email protected] or by calling 1-800-439-8550. For more information head online to healthvermont.gov/radon.
