Barn Restaurant Fundraiser Dinner Tuesday, December 11, 6 PM, for Town Hall fire escape project: The town of Pawlet was recently awarded a grant from the Vermont Arts Council to install a fire escape on the back of the Town Hall. Without a fire escape, use of the upstairs auditorium is very restricted and requires the presence of a town fireman. Completing this step will help make the space available for community events. The Arts Council grant requires matching funds, a portion of which must be raised privately. Many thanks to all those who have already donated for the match. Help us finish this phase of the fundraising and celebrate the holidays at the same time! The evening will include music by Gary and Erika Schmidt, plated dinner, and a silent auction with lots of items for holiday gifts.

If you can’t join us on December 11 please send your tax-deductible donation payable to “Pawlet Town Hall Restoration” directly to Judy Coolidge, Treasurer, Town of Pawlet, PO Box 128, Pawlet, VT 05761. Thank you.
