Fair Haven will celebrate fall’s most bountiful crop Saturday as AppleFest returns to the town green.

We have some new people every year and some people who come year after year.” The festival, which has been held every year for more than two decades, is coordinated largely by local students who select and then organize many of the activities. Middle school students typically organize what is called “balloon bust,” in which participants try to break a water balloon hung above

Applefest another person. “One of the grades always does bead making, and the kindergarteners will be selling a jelly that was made just for this event,” Ramey said. A number of civic organizations also pitch in and host different events. “Everyone just kind of blends in; it works well,” Ramey said. One of those groups is the Fair Haven Historical Society, which hosts an apple pie baking contest that has quickly became a staple of the festival. The culinary competition features two divisions: adult and student. Children ages 7 to 12 are encouraged to enter the competition, and their entries are judged by other students. Although one pie will be selected as the best, all kids receive a ribbon of participation. The adult division is open to amateur bakers and pies are judged based on appearance, texture and taste. Ribbons are awarded to the first, second and third place entries. All entries must be submitted by 11 a.m., and judging will commence at noon. Pies must be in disposable tins, covered in a clear plastic wrap and at least 8-inches in diameter (student pies can of any size). Pie fillings must consist primarily of apple. After the pies are judged, they will be sold, either by the slice or the pie, to hungry patrons and encouraging family members. Pie, however, will not be the only culinary treat available. The Rotary Club will be serving its chicken barbecue, there will be an assortment of food vendors and the Fair Haven Farmers Market will have produce and fresh baked goods available for purchase. Throughout the day, there

are a variety of vendors, downtown merchants will have sidewalk sales and the Fair Haven Library will host a book sale. And while not technically part of AppleFest, Eureka Lodge will hold an auction of household items beginning at 3:30 p.m. in the park. The auction continues the following day at 1 p.m. Admission to AppleFest is free. Any proceeds gleaned from students’ games and other activities will help cover the expense of school-related functions, such as field trips. In the event of rain, the festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 28. For more information call Ramey at 265-3883, ext. 208. For additional information on the pie baking contest, call 3653545.

Chili member of the Rotary Club. On the day of the event will be a 5k run and an auction of gift baskets, gift certificates to local restaurants and other items. Main Street will be blocked off, and a DJ will add to festivities. Individuals and groups are encouraged to participate in the cook off and the only requirements are a vivid imagination— no chili ingredient or recipe is too outlandish—and that at least five gallons of chili is prepared. Stanyon said more than 20 individual and group cooks are on tap to participate in the event this year and upward of 1,000 patrons typically come to sample the various recipes.

“People like to be out and tasting chili,” Stanyon said, adding that tasters collect the ceramic tasting cups. Cash prizes will be awarded in several categories: $100 for best chili by popular vote; $100 for the best entry in the student category; $100 for best vegetarian chili; and $50 for best themed both (costumes are encouraged). Cash prizes will also be awarded to the first place ($300) and second place ($250) finishers in the Vermont Chili Champion category. There is no charge to partici-

The West Pawlet community is holding two events this weekend to help out one of its own. On Friday, Sept. 20, staff of the Mettawee Community School, as well as friends and community members, will put on a spaghetti dinner for the benefit of MCS bus driver and community member Cyndi Legg, who recently lost her West Pawlet home to a fire. In the early hours of Labor Day morning, Cyndi lost her house and its contents. A neighbor discovered the blaze shortly after 3 a.m., called the West Pawlet Fire Department and alerted the neighborhood. Within minutes, the house was completely engulfed in flames. “With no way to communicate with Legg, who had flown to her mother’s deathbed in Florida, Cyndi pulled into her driveway in the afternoon to see a pile of debris where her house once stood. The first thing she said to her tenants was ‘Thank God it wasn’t the apartments.’ Cyndi had lost her home and everything in it; however, the first thought she had

was of the safety of others,” officials said. “Legg has been a resident of West Pawlet for many years and is known in the area for her willingness to help any neighbor in need,” officials said. The dinner will be held at the Mettawee Community School on Route 153 in West Pawlet beginning at 5 p.m. and will continue until all are served. The menu includes spaghetti with or without meatballs, tossed salad, bread, a beverage and brownie sundae for dessert. Cost is $8 per person and takeout will be available. Legg has been a school bus driver for the Mettawee

The school community is trying to give back to Cyndi for all the times she has given to the school and its students. For more information, please contact Kelli Lewis, Lisa Wood or Cindy Collard at 802-645-9009. On Sunday Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., the neighbors will be holding a bake sale across from St. Frances Cabrini Church on route 153 in West Pawlet. Cash donations, as well gift cards, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room and pet essentials would be appreciated. Those who cannot attend and would like to contribute can mail donations to: Cyndi Legg, c/o Jordan Cole, 3677 VT Rte. 153, Apartment 1, West Pawlet, Vt. 05775.

West Pawlet schoolhouse on National Registry The parents of Braintree did not want to give up their oneroom schoolhouse. It wasn’t until the state of Vermont forced the remaining nine students and their teacher out of the West Pawlet structure in 1934 that they moved. “They defied the state and didn’t start sending their children to public school; they absolutely refused to close the school. It took quite a bit of time for that transition,” said Susanne Rappaport, curator of the Pawlet Historical Society. Last month, she and other members of the society were joined by the public to celebrate the schoolhouse being named to the National Register of Historic Places. That designation was the culmination of much work and effort on the part of the histori-

cal society. “It was a matter of giving a full history of the school. We’re rather proud. As a historical society it’s our job to preserve the history of Pawlet,” said Steve Williams, president of the society. And Rappaport said their request was originally turned down, and they were told they had to show it was important nationally and not just in Vermont. The group obtained a $20,000 grant from the Preservation Trust of Vermont to restore the Braintree School and a school in North Pawlet, which they also own, in 2008. That money went back into the building because it was an “architectural gem,” Rappaport said. A preservation specialist cleaned up the longleaf yellow pine flooring, stripped the walls to the original lathe and finished them with horsehair plaster.

“The goal was to restore it, as much as possible, to its original condition,” Rappaport said, explaining that it had been in less-than-perfect shape before the work. At its peak, Rappaport said

the school may have had as many as 40 students in eight different grades. “The school has gone through many, many lives. At one point after the school was closed there were bees stored in here, and

Schoolhouse served youth of Pawlet for 82 years Like many one-room schoolhouses, the Braintree School in West Pawlet is rich with history. The school, which was on Jack and Marjorie Jones’ farmstead until they donated it to the West Pawlett Historical Society in 1973, was built in 1852. Susanne Rappaport, curator of the historical society, said the school may have housed as many as 40 students in eight grades when it closed in 1937. The one-story, Federal-style school was built with bricks believed to have been made at a factory in Middle Granville, and was laid with pine flooring. During restoration the slate chalkboard was removed to reveal original, period blackboards, which were made of wood. During improvements in the 1930s, the front entrance was bricked in, likely to block noise and dust from a higher volume of road traffic, and a side entry was built instead. According to the historical society, the area superintendent

the front door was completely bricked in,” she told the group on Thursday. Their restoration and detailed account of the building and its history paid off—it made it onto the register a couple of years ago. “They realized there are not very many of these buildings left in Vermont,” Rappaport said. She said Pawlet alone once housed about 13 schoolhouses in its various neighborhoods, which dwindled down to the few that remain today. “I think it is a great honor for Pawlet. When the sign is out front, people stop and pay attention and take interest in the building,” she said. The historical society has also successfully placed two other buildings in Pawlet on the National Register: the town hall and the library. Look for the schoolhouse at the corner of Vermont Route 153 and Warren Switch Road.

Marion Greenwood There was a time that when you pulled into a Texaco station for gas the attendant would be wearing matching shirt and pants, shiny black shoes, a special Texaco hat and a nifty black bowtie at his neck—“You can trust your car to the man who wears the star, the bright red Texaco star.” A lot of people were in uniform in the 1950s— taxi drivers, bus drivers, ushers at the theatres (“call for Philip Mooris.”)How ‘bout the skinny lad who ran the elevator at the economy store. He looked like he lifted that uniform off from Commodore Perry. Hey, even in little ole Fair Haven a local plumber named Fred Faye never left for work without a nice black tie for his Dickies work outfit. You see, back in that time period you would never ever see a lady out of her house without her makeup and sporting some very sporty attire. Marion was from that time period, and every time she stepped into Williams Hardware she was dressed to the Hilt and in her soft and kind voice she would do her business. Today’s world is moving way too fast. Everybody’s got these

little pocket gizmos and they’re tweeting away to beat the band. “How many tweets have you got? Boy, are you popular.” I have people driving at me in 2,000-pound vehicles talking on walking telephones or tweeting. It’s the ladies like Marion who are tripping me back to the good times that are keeping me sane. And now, they are beginning to leave the tracks as quick as you can tweet a “friend” that you don’t even know. And by the way, what’s the big deal, we had tweets back in 1960—“Tweet, tweet, tweedledee deet—he rocks in the tree top all day long, hoppin’ and a boppin’ and a singing his song, all the little birds on Jaybird Street, love to hear the robin go t we e - t we e - t we e t — Ro ck i n Robbin tweet-tweet-tweet…” Marion thanks for the great memories of all those ladies dressed to the Hilt at Rutland’s own Fishman’s, Kresge’s and Woolworth Stores. (Next week there’s gonna be a Chinese man out front of Woolworth’s demonstrating the yo-yo! Wow!) God Bless Marion Greenwood.

Taste of Fall in Wells A dinner befitting the season will be held next Saturday in Wells. The Wells United Methodist Church will host its Taste of Fall Harvest Feast beginning at

4:30 p.m. at the Modern Woodmen of America Hall Sept. 28. Look for additional details in next week’s Lakes Region Free Press or call 645-0422 for more information.

Drastic improvement for local orchards This year’s season offers plentiful crops, growers recently started picking Macs Dan Wilson is not downplaying that he’s pleased with his apple crop this year. “If it sounds like I’m really happy, it’s because I am,” the owner of Hicks Orchard in Granville said Monday. After taking a big hit last fall due to irregular weather, Wilson is glad to be looking at a season that brings a high volume of high quality apples. “It’s a big relief because we’re looking at a great crop this year,” he said. “Last year we limped through with 40 percent of our crop,” he explained, but such an event can be almost cathartic for an orchard. “Sometimes after trees have a light crop, they bounce back better the next year. There’s a lot of good, easy picking this year,” Wilson said. “We’re at about 120 percent this season.” Last year’s poor season was largely due to an unseasonably warm stretch in March, which set the clocks for the trees to bloom. “They were blooming the first week of April. The blossoms were in a vulnerable stage, and it became cold,” Wilson said. However, as the trees grew last summer they put in buds for the following year’s crop, “and we’re reaping the benefits of that this year.” Wilson said this past winter was more traditional, and the trees opened up at the normal time. Additionally, he said there was good pollination from the bees. “We’re making lots of cider donuts, having a normal season. That’s pretty much the

story at most orchards around here,” he said. The only exceptions are those that were hit by hail, which Hicks was fortunate enough to avoid. The story is similar at

Fairview Orchard in Hampton, where co-owner Don Rogers also saw drastic improvement from last fall. “It’s much better. Last year was devastating; we only had 20

percent,” Rogers said. This year, he said about 85 percent of his crop survived. Right now, the orchards are in another stage where they’re weather dependent, but more for the sake of the crowds they hope to attract. Wilson said last weekend was good, with a healthy number of people coming to pick. Though there have been frost warnings on a number of recent night’s, he said apple-growers aren’t worried. “We had early frost, and some of our apples show that, but they’re still edible and still sellable. We’re just thankful we got what we got,” he said. “Frost and fall-like weather at this point will help color the fruit up,” Wilson said. Besides the obvious, another perk of this season’s hearty crop will be prices reverting back to what they were about two years ago. “Prices have dropped, and hopefully that’s an enticement,” he said. And the prices aren’t the only factor that will rein applelovers in to the orchard. Along with cider doughnuts and the usual assortment of local goods, Hicks will be cooking up applewood-fired pizza on the weekends. Slyboro Ciderhouse will host a few weekend events as well, including the release of a new hard cider. Though tarter varieties were more available several weeks ago, Rogers said he recently started picking the ever-popular Macintoshes. “The apples are smaller this year, and some fell off the tree early, but overall we’re doing well,” he said.

Where to find and pick local apples Coming back strong from a poor season last year, area orchards have a hearty offering for this fall. The cider doughnuts are flying off the shelves, and the apples are reddening on the trees. Area growers started to pick Macintoshes a couple of weeks ago, and other varieties are available as well. As no one can guarantee what supplies will be like after the end of September, now is the time to pick-yourown. Below is information for some of the area’s orchards.

GMP to Schoolchildren: Name our talking cow

Curbstone Chorus to perform The Rutland Curbstone Chorus will present its fourth annual show at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, in the Mill River High School auditorium in North Clarendon. The Curbstone Chorus is well known for its excellent barbershop harmony and has entertained countless music lovers throughout all of Rutland County and parts of New York State since it was formed seven years ago. They have performed at the Paramount Theater four times, opening for Rockapella in 2009, as well as at the Castleton, Ticonderoga and Granville, N.Y. summer concert series, Brandon and Poultney parades, Friday Nite Live,

retirement homes, gazebos, ice rinks, football fields, birthday’s, funerals, and more. The annual show will have several guest performers, including the 2012 Northeast District champions and International Quartet participants, On Air, the Spoon Mountain Singers, Sweet Tones, and the Rutland High School Chamber Singers. Tickets can be purchased from any member of the chorus and at the door. The cost is $10. Mill River High School is located at 2321 Middle Road in N. Clarendon. For more information, contact Dan Graves at 7756643 or Dick Nordmeyer at 273-2911.

Schoolchildren are being asked to help name what may become the most-visited cow in Vermont. Looking to connect Vermont schools and students to its new Energy Innovation Center, Green Mountain Power is holding a contest for schoolchildren to name one of the focal points of the educational section – a talking, animatronic cow in a planned GMP Cow Power exhibit. The cow, created by the Imagination Company, a Bethel company creating a dozen exhibits for the EIC, is designed to engage children and adults alike and inform them about how cow manure can be used to create energy, benefit farms and solve environmental problems.

The 7-foot cow will provide a high-level overview of GMP Cow Power through a conversational series of scripts when the EIC opens later this fall. “The Cow Power display will be one of the most engaging for younger kids and their parents, and it’s inevitable that children are going to ask her name, so we decided to ask them to help us name her,” said Steve Costello, vice president for generation and energy innovation. Children 12 and younger are eligible to enter the “Name that Cow Contest,” which will run through Nov. 30. Once the EIC opens, children can enter a suggestion in person, or can send suggestions between now and Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. to Cow Name Contest, GMP EIC, 67 Merchants

Submissions sought for amateur photo exhibit The Chaffee Art Center is accepting entries for its sixth annual photo contest and exhibit. Amateur photographers are asked to submit photos that reflect this year’s theme: Take the Streets. This can include photos of any streets, the people who dwell there, the patterns the streets make and the structures surrounding them. All submissions must be an 8-inch by 10-inch photo and each person is limited to a total of

three submissions. Entries are due by Saturday, Oct. 19 and can be mailed to the Rutland Area Art Association, PO Box 1447, Rutland, Vt., 05701, or dropped off at the Chaffee Art Center at 16 South Main Street in Rutland. If chosen, photos will be exhibited at the art center from Oct. 25 to Nov. 16. A reception and awards banquet will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 1. For more information, call 775-0356.

Row, Suite 104, Rutland Vt. 05701, or via email to cownamecontest@greenmountainpower. com. Entries should include the suggested cow name, as well as the name, town, age, school name or home school and phone number of the child submitting the suggestion. Teachers or parents may send entries from multiple children but should identify each child’s entry separately. The winner will be invited to an ice cream party at the EIC for up to 30 people from their school or family, in the case of homeschoolers. Green Mountain Power’s new Energy Innovation Center, now under construction, will be located at 68-70 Merchants Row in downtown Rutland.

Women converse over coffee, doughnuts and bowling Coffee and Donut bowling league begins season

Bernice Wallman laced up her shoes. She used both arms to carry her bowling ball to the ball return, and she took a seat with her teammates. When it was her turn she dropped the ball with a thud, and it slowly but intently made its way down the lane to knock over all but one pin. She missed it on the second roll and then apologized for failing to make a strike. At 92, though, it’s forgivable. Wallman is one of 28 women—two under the age of 50 and the rest ranging from 65 to 92—in the Coffee and Donut League at the Granville Bowling Alley. On a chilly Friday morning, the first of 33 weeks of bowling, the women warmed up with hot coffee and fresh doughnuts and greeted each other with hugs and laughs. Secretary Cheryl Lurvey said it was hectic, being the first day back at the lanes for the season, but the women didn’t seem to notice. Taking their time between bites, sips and chatting, the women approached the pins unhurriedly and bowled. “It’s not serious. It’s more of a social gathering,” Lurvey said, echoing the sentiments of the other women, who emanate a festive feeling with laughter, joking and even a little dancing. Though the bowlers do care about improving their scores, they’re more about socialization and prompting each other up. Everyone cheered, for example, when Iva Liebig started out the day with a strike.

Liebig, who modestly said she was just OK at her sport, has been coming to the alley since it opened. “I enjoy bowling. I come to enjoy it with my team and the other teams. We

don’t care if we win or we lose; it’s about friendship,” she said. “You know you’ve got one thing each week to look forward to. We’re just

News from Poultney Castleton Historical Elementary School Society to Poultney Elementary School held its Open House on Monday, Sept. 16. Parents had the opportunity to visit their child’s classroom and meet their teachers. Poultney Elementary School is once again the recipient of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant as sponsored by the Vermont Agency of Education in partnership with the USDA. Each day the students can have whatever is offered as the free fruit or veggie of the day in order to promote healthier choices. In addition, each classroom encourages children to bring healthy and nutritious snacks whenever possible as part of ongoing efforts for school-wide health and wellness. Principal Caliguiri thanks parents who have sent in information as needed to update the

school’s Alert-Now message system. This system will be used in the event that officials need to delay or cancel school due to inclement weather, to remind parents of upcoming programs or activities, or for contact in the event of an emergency. Parents are asked to notify the school of changes in schedules in dismissal as early as possible should the need arise. There will be an Early Release Day for students on Tuesday, Sept. 24 as staff will be working on professional development activities. All students will be dismissed at noon on that day. School pictures for grades K-2 will be taken on Wednesday, Sept. 25 and for Grades 3 to 6 on Thursday, Sept. 26. Payment envelopes have been sent home with students.

happy to get out of the house, and we’re happy if we keep the ball in the lane,” Lurvey agreed. Wallman, who cited similar reasons for her long-standing attendance, said she’d never bowled before joining the league in the 1970s. “I moved to this area, and one of my neighbors asked me to bowl because they were short—I’ve been bowling ever since,” she said. “I don’t know what I’d do without it. It gets so you look forward to it, and you’re ready for it to start up.” She’s not the only one of the women who’s been in the league for more than 30 years. Many of the bowlers have grown old together inside the alley. “When I was getting married, they threw a wedding shower for me here. When I was having my last daughter, they threw a baby shower for me here. When there’s a funeral, we all send cards. More or less we got to know each other here,” Lurvey said. She said many in the group were mothers of young children when they started, and today most are grandparents. The women, who come from a number of nearby towns, play three games each Friday. Since the league started about four decades ago, Angelo Scott has consistently provided coffee and donuts for the ladies to enjoy. They pay $10 a week to play but get most of it back through awards and prizes. President Janice Jones said the league is looking for more individuals or teams to bowl. Those interested in participating can call either Jones at 802645-9030 or Lurvey at 642-9895. Or, they can go to Granville Lanes any Friday at 9:30 a.m. and see what it’s all about.
