The Crescent Valley Homemakers: Long-time members still refer to the Crescent Valley Homemakers as “Home Dem,” which was its name back  in the 1940’s 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

Pawlet Scholarships Committee: 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 over $519,000 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.
