Sunday, March 25 — 4th Annual Soup Fest and Silent Auction


For the Historical Society of Windham County’s 4th annual Soup Fest and Silent Auction. 

The 4th Annual Soup Fest and Silent Auction fund raiser will be held on Sunday, March 25 at the NewBrook Fire Station (Route 30 in Newfane, VT).  Doors open at 4:00PM with a suggested donation of $5 – $10.  Silent Auction bidding opens at 4:00 and ends at 5:30. Soup will be served at 5:30, with desserts to follow.

You won’t have to ride the 36 Miles of Trouble to sample homemade soups from Brattleboro to South Londonderry. These restaurants all the way up the gauge of the West River Railroad are catering to you:

The Whetstone Station,  Brattleboro

The Top of the Hill Grill,  Brattleboro

The Eatery, Williamsville

Rick’s Tavern, Newfane

Harmonyville Store, Townshend

The Townshend County 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

The event will help raise funds for the West River Railroad Museum and the final restoration phase of the 1880 Newfane Railroad Station — replacing the roof of the 1880 Water Tank House.   It will be a great way to shake off the winter blues, hear more about the Railroad Museum and come home with a great auction find or two.
