Sunday, March 26, 2017 — Doors open at 4:00PM
Third 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 station stops along the old West River Railroad are bringing them to you: The Whetstone Station (Brattleboro), The Top of the Hill Grill (Brattleboro), Rick’s Tavern (Newfane), Harmonyville Store (Townshend), Townshend Country Inn (Townshend), The Dam Diner (West Townshend), The Bitter Sweet Memories Cafe (Wardsboro), D & K Jamaica Grocery (Jamaica), Fran’s Kitchen (Winhall), The New American Grill (South Londonderry).
Soup and bread will be served at 5:30PM, followed by desserts. Silent auction bids and the 50/50 raffle will open at 4:00 and close at 5:30PM. 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’s unique Water Tank House.
