The Town of Pawlet celebrated its 250th anniversary of charter this summer, August 26-28, 2011. We had a wonderful day in both village centers with a quilt show, treasures display, pie sale, ghost walks, parade, barbecue, street dance and glorious fireworks to cap it all off. Thanks everyone for making it such a great day, and let us remember this day of celebration in the wake of the damage from Hurricane Irene that followed on Sunday. In both cases, the Pawlet community spirit came through!
