Sunday, March 20, 2016, doors open at 4:00PM – Second Annual Soup Fest and Silent Auction

Location: NewBrook Fire Station, Route 30, Newfane

You won’t have to ride the West River Railroad’s “36 Miles of Trouble” to enjoy a variety of soups from Brattleboro to South Londonderry. Ten restaurants from the 10 depot towns along the old West River Railroad are bringing them to you. Soup, bread and fixings will be served at 5:00PM, followed by desserts. Silent auction bids and the 50/50 raffle will close at 6:00PM. An exhibit of the West River Railroad’s “36 Miles of Trouble” will be on display including the Newfane Railroad Station diorama (built by model craftsman of international renown Bill Banta, and on loan from Doug Cox), along with vintage photographs of the West River Railroad. The event will help raise funds for the Historical Society’s restoration of the 1880 Newfane Railroad Station.
