By the way for Feb. 27

How sweet it is to be marching into spring with the onset of sugaring season in Starksboro and kick it off with a free community supper this Sunday, March 1, from 5:30-7 p.m. The supper, which will be held at the First Baptist Church of Starksboro at 2806 Route 116, will gives participants a chance to celebrate with folks in the New Community Project, the First Baptist Church, the local library, and, of course, with your neighbors. It will feature discussion about the history of sugaring in Starksboro. The free meal is also intended as a celebration of the arrival of spring, sugaring, and a general appreciation for Starksboro.
