The Farmers Market
 
The Danville Farmers Market started in June and goes through October. The weekly farmers market is held on Wednesday Mornings, this year 1 mile West on Route #2 watch for the signs, held rain or shine.  Many local gardeners and farmers will be setup every week with fresh vegetables, most picked that day. Many have signs indicating that their vegetables  are organically grown. Others sell donuts and bread that they have made, yarn that they have woven, and goats cheese that they have made, and of course maple syrup. This year the new product is Vermont made wine, you can even sample it before you buy!
          New vendors and new shoppers are always welcome, it's worth the drive.

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.

GREEN UP DAY - BULKY   DAY  

Green Up Day is scheduled for the first Saturday in May of 2010, as always we are looking for volunteers to help clean up our road sides and public areas. 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!
