We've gotten involved with the Poultney Food Shelf, an emergency agency located in the Stonebridge Center. The PFS assists our neighbors from Poultney, Middletown Springs, Wells, and Hampton.

The Food Shelf is open on Tuesdays from 3 - 5 PM.

Another aspect of this helping organization is the monthly food deliveries to seniors. Of course, I gladly volunteered, taking over Ann DeBonis' long-standing route.

Along the way I've met wonderful people who have a terrific knowledge of the community: people, places, and things! They are a wonderful group of outstanding citizens.

Please meet some of our new friends:

Mr. Tom Snyder who is the proprietor of the Sakanac Antiques House; this pine cone Christmas tree is over 40 years old...a gift from Mr. Snyder's brother;

Mr. Roberts who enjoys watching birds and has a faithful pet in his cat, Sam; and,

Mr. Mount who lives in East Poultney and was an important businessman on Wall Street, NYC.

These and the others who I bring monthly supplemental groceries to are an asset to our community and have a great knowledge of the history of our town, Poultney.
