Reading Turkey Supper and Old Time Ball #VT

Saturday night the Reading Fire Department Auxiliary hosted a Turkey Supper and Old Time Ball. Folks could share in a family style community supper then head upstairs in Reading Town Hall and dance the night away to Yvonne and the Reverbs.
The turkey supper featured seven fresh turkeys from Ephraim Mountain Farm in Springfield VT, the smallest was 26 lbs and the largest 28.5 lbs.  As Bob Allen tells it "The turkeys had feathers on them Wednesday! We cooked them up today." The volunteers served up 100 lbs of potatoes, 100 lbs of onions, 100 lbs of squash and 38 pies-17 pumpkin pies cooked were on Friday in the Town Hall kitchen, rest were provided by cooks in the community. Esther Allen said "Everything was made from scratch, even the cranberry sauce. We have a great group of volunteers that helped us out."

Following dinner, folks made their way upstairs a good Old Time Ball featuring the music of Yvonne and The Reverbs. George and Della Starkweather traveled all the way from Marlboro NH to see the band. "We love this band, we missed them this summer at the VFW so we're really dying to see them tonight" said Della.
