POULTNEY — The Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce is organizing the annual Spotlight on Business Show for April 13, from 9 am. to 3 p.m. at St. Raphael’s Hall.
The registration form for businesses is available on the Poultney Chamber website, at Williams Hardware, at Stitchy Women and at the Stonebridge. It is also being emailed to all members of the Poultney Area Chamber, as well as to other local chambers.
All businesses are asked to complete the form and return it to Stitchy Women or the Stonebridge, email to email@example.com, or mail to PACC “Spotlight,” P.O. Box 151, Poultney, VT, 05764 .
The Chamber hopes to have enough businesses to expand the event to the high school — the final decision will be made in the middle of March.
The show will feature businesses that deal with alternative energy, including geothermal, solar electricity, solar hot water, wind, biofuels, pellet stoves and wood heat.
There will also be information about insulation and supplies, ways to heat and cool your home or business more efficiently, energy audits and other tools you can use to save money.
Seven local food establishments will be providing free “tastings” to sample some of their specialties. They include Tot’s Diner, Perry’s Main Street Eatery, The East Poultney General Store, Poultney Pizza, the Trolley Stop, The Station and Taps Tavern.
In addition, the Ladies Guild of St. Raphael’s will have coffee and doughnuts, with soup and sandwiches for lunch time.
Local artists are invited to show off their work, and demonstrate their skills. From slate to oil painting, from pottery and stoneware to watercolors, from folk art to woodworking to photography.
Demonstrations already scheduled include spinning, weaving and a fashion show. There will also be an outside display of excavating and lawn care equipment.
Many other local businesses will be setting up displays and demonstrating what they do
