W. Pawlet Pancake Breakfast to Host Vermont Author
The West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department will host a Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, December 13, from 7:30 to 11 a.m., at the West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department, 2806 Vermont Route 153/Main Street. Santa Claus will be joining the firefighters from 8 to 10. The menu includes several varieties of pancakes, local maple syrup, waffles, home fries, scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon with coffee, tea, milk and orange juice. Prices are $8 for 12 years and up, $5 for ages five to 12 and free to children under the age of five. Proceeds from the event go towards the department’s equipment and training needs. For more information call Antonio Landon at 802-345-4312. Author Megan Price will also be present – weather permitting – to sign her newest book, ‘Vermont Wild: Adventures of Fish and Game Wardens, Volume Four.’ This series tells of wily poachers, persistent wardens and countless ironic twists and turns that have proven popular with readers ages 9 to 99. Retired game wardens Norm Brown of Wells and Terry Williams of Poultney are among a half dozen men who contributed to Volume Four: a family of competitive deer hunters kept Williams on his toes, while Brown and a long list of law officers spent years chasing the leader of a well-oiled poaching ring which operated throughout the Mettowee Valley. Retired wardens Eric Nuse of Johnson, John Kapusta of Hardwick, Bob Lutz of Fairfax and Cabot residents Ken Denton and Walt Ackermann also contributed to the new book, which features a charging bull moose on the cover.
