SUGAR SUPPER IN GUILFORD MARCH 1
Broad Brook Grange’s annual Sugar on Snow Supper will be held Saturday, March 1, at the Grange hall in Guilford Center. Always the first sugar supper of the season in Windham County, the meal features ham, baked beans, deviled eggs, cole slaw, potato salad, rolls, pickles, homemade donuts, and Guilford maple sugar on snow.
This is always the first such supper of the sugaring season here in Windham County, with about one per weekend at other venues after this.
There will be three seatings: at 5:00, 6:00 and 7:00 pm. At each seating, a half-gallon of Guilford maple syrup will be raffled. Phone in your reservation soon!
This longtime annual fundraiser helps support the many activities of the Grange, which serves as Guilford’s Community Center, hosting pre-town meeting, Green Up Day, Independence activities, the Food Pantry, and a community Thanksgiving dinner, and provides Christmas stockings for seniors, free dictionaries for every Guilford 3rd grader, and a college scholarship. In addition, the building is used for private rentals, town and community meetings, and is the polling place for General Elections.
Tickets for the supper are: $12 for adults; $5 for children ages 5-12, and $2 for kids age 4 and under. Reservations for a particular seating are recommended, especially for the 5 pm & 6pm seating which usuall sell out in advance. A waiting list will also be kept, and those with reservations who cannot make it are asked to phone their cancellation. There are usually a few unreserved seats left for the 7 pm seating, for those who show up without a reservation. Reservations made be made by calling Thayer at 802/257-5359.
The Grange hall is located on Guilford Center Road, four miles west of the Guilford Country Store.
