The Meeting will include a small pot luck lunch so feel free to bring something. We’re looking at developing the needed committees to make this whole conference a success. If people cannot make the meeting have them at least contact me to let me know they are willing to help and we can place them on a committee. We’re figuring it will take approximately 30 people to make this event a success. The address is 290 Hackleboro Rd, Canterbury.

In the southern part of the state, temperatures followed the average starting time for boiling, starting in around February 23, with February 18 as the earliest reported date. A break from a persistent frigid weather pattern created sap flow for producers using gravity […]
