I am touched by the kindness and generosity of this community, and amazed at the culinary skills available to us.
On Friday, March 18, Mayo Healthcare held our annual Taste of Maple in the Milano Ballroom at Norwich University. This event supports Mayo in continuing to provide award-winning care. All proceeds this year will go towards the installation of a safe, outdoor walking path, so our residents can do what they love in the warm weather — get outside.
The event succeeded in raising $4,000 toward our goal. But the evening did so much more! It showcased what a wonderful community Northfield is.
Josh Fleurrey of Falls General Store took first place in the culinary competition, with both second place and the People’s Choice Award going to The Cornerstone Pub and Kitchen.
I would like to thank all the chefs who not only participated in the chef competition, but went above and beyond expectations with their culinary creations and wonderful enthusiasm. Thank you, O’Maddi’s Deli and Café, Northfield Senior Center, Falls General Store, The Cornerstone Pub and Kitchen, The Woods Lodge, Two Wooden Spoons and the neighboring business form the Mad River Valley, Three Mountain Café, The Comman Man, and Sugarbush Resort.
Thank you also to our judges, who by no means had an easy task. They were Jaime Schneider, Henry Marckres, and Burr Morse. Thank you, Norwich and Sodexo, for the beautiful space. A big thank you to the over 50 businesses who supported our silent auction.
Finally, thank you Northfield.
