Located seven miles north of Brattleboro, Vermont in the Village of Putney, The Putney Inn offers a charming and calming alternative to the commercialized frenzy of “the city.” Easily off Exit 4 of Vermont Interstate 91, our location makes us convenient to all of southern Vermont and northwestern Massachusetts.

Guilford Pre-Town Meeting

It’s in the Calemdar already, but I got the feeling iBrattleboro wants Guilford news & this seems to be it for this week. (I do see your note in the guidelines saying events should go in the Calendar, maybe not here, so am not sure you want this here, but anyway!!!)

This Thursday at Broad Brook Grange at 7 pm is the annual pre-town meeting.  First the Selectboard, then School board, will outline the items they’re going to be bringing to the voters on Mar 5.  This is good venue to ask questions in an informal setting.  Candidates for Town & School Board offices are also asked to attend to introduce themselves. Guilford doesn’t get as fancy as having a candidates’ forum, so this is it.
