The Game Supper November 17th 2011
The Danville Methodist Game Supper, begun in 1921, is not only the oldest game supper in Vermont, but considered by many to be one of the finest in the region. Once featured in Yankee Magazine’s “Book of Special New England Days,?the game supper takes place on the Thursday before Thanksgiving at the Danville United Methodist Church on the southwest corner of the Green. Meat pies are featured, typically venison, moose, bear, coon, beaver, rabbit, and chicken. The tables groan with side dishes, squash, potato, glazed carrots, green beans, cranberry sauce, coleslaw, and pickles, topped off with dinner rolls, coffee, and homemade dessert pies.

Call James Jung for further information at 684-1019. Also it is Bulky Day so bring your large items to throw out to the Town Wood Dump on the Bruce Badger Memorial Highway between 9AM and 12PM. Here is another chance to cleanup around town and dispose properly of those unwanted items.
Town Hall Repairs
Danville Town Hall roof renovations are completed. The roofing has been replaced with a nice metal roof that should solve the leak problems for a long time. Prior to the roofing, reinforcing members were added to the roof rafters in the attic, so they shouldn't sag any more. While they were up there doing the roofing, we decided to spruce up the clock faces and clock tower as well. Take a look at it, it all looks really nice!
Second Floor renovations are complete also!
