13th annual Woodchuck Festival returns to West Pawlet

Saturday, Feb. 6 at 10 a.m. — WEST PAWLET — The 13th annual Woodchuck Festival in West Pawlet  will be held Saturday, Feb. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A fundraiser event sponsored jointly by the West Pawlet Ladies Auxiliary and the West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department, this annual event is held at Mettawee Community School, 5788 Vermont Route 153. All are welcome to the family event for all ages.

Also announced, “Vermont Wild” author Megan Price will be present (weather permitting) in the market area of the day’s event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. where she will be available for signings of her newest book, “Vermont Wild—Adventures of Fish & Game Wardens, Volume Four” as well as all her other books, including “Maine Wild.” The “Vermont Wild” series, tales of wily poachers, persistent wardens and countless ironic twists and turns have created a lot of the fun and laughs for readers. The stories have proven popular with readers ages 9 to 99. Local wardens star in the new “Vermont Wild” book featuring a charging bull moose on the cover. Retired game warden Norm Brown of Wells and deputy warden Terry Williams of Poultney are among a half dozen men who contributed their true stories to the book.

Beth Moser-Duquette, vice president of the ladies auxiliary, said that many things will be going on throughout the day, including a silent auction, a craft vendor market with many hand-crafted and home-made items, and home-baked goods. There will be cow plop bingo; and face painting fun for children. Little Angels Daycare will offer child care during the events. Food will be offered at the firemen’s Woodchuck Café.
