Each Spring we have the sweetest of treats, all thanks to our lovely and super generous cook, Pam. There are few places in the world where you can have sugar-on-snow, and luckily (for oh so many reasons) we live in one of them, Vermont! Pam brings in her own maple syrup, that her son and family gathers and boils, makes her famous homemade donuts and makes sure that I get sour pickles for our treat.
I do not have words to describe the joy this brings to all of us at Holton Home. The celebration of hard work, the joys that come from every season, even mud, the long-standing tradition of it all. Residents remember having the sweet treat as little kids, and those that aren’t native New Englanders get to taste a small touch of all that makes us special!
Thank you Pam, really for everything you do for us all, but especially for bringing us this wonderful treat! If you would like to celebrate mud season with us and have a local snack, we would love if you would join us, Monday, April 4th at 2:45. We hope to see you there!
