Pawlett Historical Society: Our monthly board meetings are held every second Thursday at 7:00 PM and are open to the public. Currently all our meetings are being held online. Otherwise, from May through August we meet at the Chriss Monroe Chapel on Cemetery Hill Road in the Pawlet village center; from September through April our monthly meetings are at the Pawlet Public Library on School Street in the Pawlet village center. Also visit us online at http://pawletthistoricalsociety.org or see our Facebook page.
Haystack Hustler Seniors: At all meetings we collect food for the Pawlet Food Pantry and hold our 50/50 raffle. For further information, contact Phyllis Mason at 802-325-3196.
The Crescent Valley Homemakers: Long-time members still refer to the Crescent Valley Homemakers as “Home Dem,” which was its name back in the 1940s when it was an educational project of the Vermont Agricultural Extension Agency, to teach young farmers’ wives through home demonstrations of making jelly or canning vegetables. It probably met a social need, too. Nowadays, we still socialize and learn, and we also like to give back to the community. We usually meet for lunch on the first Wednesday of every month except March, July and August, and we would love to extend a hearty welcome to anyone who’d like to join. We have very informative guest speakers, and enjoy the friendship of everyone who comes. For more information, call Pat at: 802-325-3579, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Pawlet Scholarship Committee was founded in 1995 by West Pawlet resident Jane Rinck as her way of giving back to her community. Her generosity and vision launched what has become a vital local resource for area students of all ages. Since its inception, Pawlet Scholarships has awarded nearly $600,000 to deserving Pawlet and West Pawlet residents pursuing educational goals. And we are focused on continuing this mission in a way that can benefit even more people in the future. To learn more about how to apply for scholarships, visit https://pawletscholarships.org/.
