Weathersfield Weekly June 7

 

June 7, 2017
Weathersfield, Vt.


Well, I survived volunteering at another Covered Bridges Half Marathon this past weekend. It's always fun to catch up with returning runners and their families. Long day but so worth it.

Congratulations to:

I'm very excited because I just learned that two of my favorite Burlington, Vt. musicians will be in my backyard in a couple of weeks. Kelly Ravin and Lowell Thompson will be performing at the Wellwood Orchards Strawberry Festival on June 24 at 1:30 p.m.. These guys are great, you have to come and check them out. And you can pick a bunch of strawberries at the same time. And did I mention that Wellwood Orchards will be selling their amazing cider donuts. Sounds like a great Saturday is coming our way.
