There's no better way to celebrate the season in Vershire than with our own Fall Festival, and this year's was stunning, on Saturday, October 7.
The day started with the Vershire Community Library's 31st book sale, despite a sprinkle now and then on an otherwise balmy and beautiful day.
Fabulous food always features prominently at this festival, centering around the cauldrons of chicken and vegetarian Stone Soup stewing over an open fire. Accompanying the soup, of course, was homemade bread baked in her own wood-fired oven by Suzanne Lupien. Following the soup were the delicious entries in the apple pie contest.
Apple cider is the perfect thing to wash down a meal like that, and there's none better than fresh-pressed. Thanks to The Mountain School it was flowing throughout the day.
Other offerings included guessing the weight of this pumpkin, visiting with local animal friends and creatively decorating little pumpkins.
The Scholarship Endowment quilt raffle, Vershire Fire and Rescue table, and Historical Society displays rounded out this diverse gathering.
I can only agree with Deb Kingsbury's praise for the event. "It was a perfect fall afternoon—and what fun to interact with our friends, family and visitors in such an inviting and casual gathering. Thanks to all that donated veggies, pies, bread, apples, their time prepping and cleaning up afterwards. Another big thanks to all that attended!" It was the perfect way to welcome autumn.
