64 Snowmobile VERMONT On December 16 2015 the Northeast Kingdom lost a legend. Born and raised in the Derby area Paul Joseph Letourneau was known by many as the man with the big heart. As a person who has always taken pride in taking care of his section of the earth Paul spent many years farming. In 1972 his dream of building a sugarhouse came true and the iconic Pauls Sugarhouse and Dance Hall was born. Located on 75 acres in the heart of Derby Pauls sugarbush where he harvested all of the sap for his delicious syrup is home to a hilly and scenic portion of VAST Trail 5. Spanning across the side of Nelson Hill his parcel of land is the gateway for snowmobilers entering the Town of Derby to access services. Drift Dusters Snowmobile Club has been fortunate to have a landowner like Paul. He was always cutting up trees that fell over and trees that were dead. His woods are so clean we always knew there would be no work needed on that portion of the trail. Paul found peace and serenity in his woods while he was working in themwhich reflected on his personality. He was a peaceful man who always had a large smile on his face when any club representative met with him. When approached by the PAUL LETOURNEAUPAUL LETOURNEAUPAUL LETOURNEAU By Roger Gosselin club for permission every year he kindly said You dont have to ask. You will always have a place here. His sugarhouse and dance hall was the unofficial Drift Dusters club house because the Annual Meeting and Potluck Dinner as well as the Annual Winter Bash is held there. Paul and his family always treated the club and its members as family. A big hit at the club events were Pauls maple baked beans which were cooked with the syrup harvested in the woods surrounding Trail 5. He was always quick to remind us that the beans really do work as he winked and smiled. Paul left behind a legacy that his family promises to continue. It will not be the same around the area with Paul gone but he will always be remembered especially as we traverse through his sugar woods on snowmobile. In Loving Memory Paul Joseph Letourneau March 6 1927 Dec. 16 2015 Pauls sugarbush on VAST Trail 5 in Derby is a serene section of the Drift Dusterstrail system. The Drift Dusters hold their Annual Winter Bash at Pauls Sugarhouse. In Memory
