The West Fairlee Community Club and the West Fairlee Center Congregational Church on Middlebrook Road once again present their Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social, followed by a Blessing of the Animals on the church green adjacent. Rain or shine!

Come to the Community Clubhouse at 3:30 pm and enjoy vanilla ice cream with all the toppings -chocolate sauce, blueberry, maple syrup, whipped cream, granola +/or nuts, and more. A non-dairy option will be available if dairy sensitive. 

Step across to the church green if you like for the Blessing of the Animals at 4:00 pm.  Over the years we have had horses, dogs, cats, llamas, a parrot, ferrets, chickens, ducks, a red-tailed hawk (on a wild visit) and more!  If you prefer, you may bring a “stuffy“, or a picture of a loved pet or special animal you know, to be blessed by our wonderful guest minister,  Rev. Brigid Farrell. Water and shade will be available for your animals.

DIRECTIONS:  Take Route 244 around Lake Fairlee and turn north up *Middlebrook Road  Go 4 miles to the Clubhouse, Church and green.
