Author to spout about sugaring
WHITINGHAM- The Whitingham Historical Society and Whitingham Free Public Library invite the public to join them on Wednesday, October 10, at 7 pm to welcome Hale Mattoon, a sixth-generation Vermonter and author from Chelsea, who has been sugaring for over 60 years.
Mattoon began collecting tools of the trade when he was just a boy and it soon became a lifelong passion, especially for spouts. Mattoon will discuss his second edition of “Maple Spouts, Spiles, Taps, & Tools” and the development of sugarmaking equipment throughout the years. Visitors will have the opportunity to ask questions following the presentation. Refreshments will be served. This event is handicap accessible, free, and open to the public.
