Some of the instructors have been Ernie DeMatties, Bob Chesnut Jr., Tom Coloutti, and Jerry Scanlon. Wendy Cadieux, our current club president, was a great help last year as she asked a lot of questions that the students may have been afraid to ask. We join in on Poultney’s town-wide yard sale most every year with donated items from not only club members, but also from many people of Poultney. It is a great fundraiser for us. The club usually has a food concession at the Fourth of July fireworks and makes a good amount of money there. Every August the Poultney Historical Society hosts East Poultney Day on the East Poultney green. Our club runs the food concession there selling hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, french fries, soda and water. We hold an annual pancake breakfast at the Poultney Elementary School every year in February and serve eggs, sausage, home fries, pancakes with maple syrup donated from local maple producers, orange juice and coffee. We also invite our 135 landowners for a free breakfast. When there is enough snow, we host a Winter Carnival. We have snowmobile rides for beginners and we supply all clothing and sleds. There is a fantastic sliding hill for the youngsters who are towed back up the hill and they have a great time. We hold this function at Chesnut’s garage and throughout the day we have burgers, fries, hot dogs, many hot dishes and drinks. This is all free for the day. It is our way of giving back to the community. The night before the carnival, we have a torchlight parade from East Poultney to Poultney and we’ve had as many as 50 sleds and riders participating. The Chamber of Commerce also hosts a spaghetti dinner in conjunction with the parade.
