COVERED BRIDGE TOUR PLANNED
IN MONTGOMERY CANCELED!!
ARTS FESTIVAL WILL BE HELD IN TROY AUGUST 11
The covered bridge tour planned by the Jay Peak Area Association for August 4 has been
canceled. The Vermont Covered Bridge Society is invited to the Arts Festival in Troy
The cancellation was announced to Joe
Nelson, VCBS president, by an e-mail from Jim McKimm of the Jay Peak Association, the
Said McKimm: "It is with great regret
that I must inform you that the Covered Bridge event on August 4 in Montgomery has been
canceled. We have had very little cooperation with the town in getting done what needed to be
and at this late date, cannot depend on them coming through. We will, however, try to work it
into our arts festival next year.
"We would like you [the VCBS] to join
us at the Arts Festival on August 11th in Troy. It is going rather well. We will have artists,
crafters, food, and live entertainment. Vermont fiddlers and the renowned barbershop Green
Mountain Chorus. We are estimating 500+ plus for the day. We will offer driving maps of all the
bridges, on both sides of the mountain.
"There is more information at
www.jaypeakvermont.com/summerfest.html. Again, my sincerest apologies and hope we can still
get something going up here with the covered bridges."
The VCBS had been invited to set up a special booth at the Montgomery Covered Bridge
Tour and the invitation is extended by the Jay Peak Association to set up the booth with covered
bridge and membership information at the Troy event. VCBS members willing to set up and run
the booth are asked to contact VCBS Secretary Ruth Nelson at 802 899-2093 or at
firstname.lastname@example.org, or P.O. Box 267, Jericho, VT 05465.
