Wow! Those of us braving the chilly autumn breezes were treated to a fantastic and fun two hour benefit concert given to us by Sherri’s Jubilee! The concert was held at Washington’s Carpenter Park, named after, and on land previously owned by the late Thelma Carpenter, one of our long term town clerks, as well as a town representative to Montpelier.
Sherri holds Washington dear to her, as it’s the boyhood town of her dad, and she was extremely generous in squeezing us into her busy music schedule. Thank you to Sherri and her wonderfully entertaining gang!
We also launched the sales of our Town Memories DVD here.

We manned a booth at the Washington Field and Fun Day, also held at Carpenter Park. This day was hot, but we had a nice display of old photos and items of interest, including a baseball outfit from the 30’s or 40’s.

We took advantage of the traffic going to and from Chelsea, Vermont’s annual flea market by having a bake sale. Washington has quite a few well-known bakers in town, and people sure took advantage of that!
- Throughout the summer, up until the drawing at the benefit concert, we sold raffle tickets. Prizes included a homemade afghan, a charcoal grill, a huge collage of old town photos, a large photo of one of the town’s old schoolhouses, a set of a small town photo and a fairgrounds one, and 2 dining gift certificates courtesy of Sambel’s Restaurant at the Knapp Airport in Berlin.
