town meeting day

A ‘pie for breakfast’ event becomes a moment for hope and redemption

For this country pastor, spring means Town Meeting Day is here. A Vermont tradition since 1762, Town Meeting Day is where residents in sleepy hamlets and frozen-in-time villages throw on their boots and trudge through the mud (or sometimes a foot or more of snow) to get to schools or village offices to speak for or against proposed policies, budgets, prospective town clerks and supervisors, and then to vote.
