Winter Shorts
A Sunday afternoon in late January
Modeled on NPR's Selected Shorts program, "Winter Shorts" features local performers, both professional and novice, sharing the work of critically acclaimed authors in an intimate setting. Come in from the cold and enjoy literature in small bites, fine spirits, elegant morsels, and the company of neighbors.

Soup Nights
A series of half-a-dozen mid-winter Tuesday evenings
Come for homemade soup, bread and butter, miscellaneous other goodies & great conversation. Meat and vegetarian options are always available. Free.

The Maple Breakfast
A Saturday morning in March
Held in the cozy kitchen and dining room of the Mary Lyon Church just down the road, this event is a celebration of our sweet local industry. If you find yourself trying to decide which pancake event to attend, keep in mind our truly special homemade pancake mix, and our tasty local fruit compote.
