This may just be the most event saturated weekend in Vermont. With so much to choose from we can only point out a few highlights.  To see a detailed event schedule check out the Online Event Calendar from our friends at Seven Days.

 

Agent of the Month-Chuck Cromer!!!

chuckcCongratulations Chuck Cromer for being KWGMP’s August Agent of the month!

Chuck Cromer is part of the Conroy and Company Team and has been with us for almost 2 1/2 years. He has closed over 2 million in the last 12 months!

Chuck has often been labeled the office clown! He is always there making people laugh, whether it is an appropriate comment or not. Well, let us be honest, usually it is not! Just kidding Chuck!

When asked, Chuck said his “ONE Thing” is “to make the world a happier place. It makes me happy to make others laugh no matter if it is children or adults. I Love to volunteer and do things for others.”

Therefore, it makes sense that Chuck is a huge contributor to our community service efforts. He has participated in all of our RED Days and recently helped at Camp Ta Kum Ta. At Camp Ta Kum Ta he was not just sitting in an office pushing papers. He was outside in the 90-degree heat carrying heavy wooden pews sweating to death! Whatever we ask him to do, he does it! He may have a smart comment to add but it is all in fun! Also our Bowl-a-thon it was apparent that he is a closet pro-bowler!

Thanks for all your spectacular service Chuck!

Who makes the best maple creemee in Vermont?

 

CREEMEE

Big question and an important one to investigate!  What out of staters are saying right now is WHAT IS A CREEMEE??? A creemee is a soft serve ice cream.Vermonters know that a great maple creemee uses real VT maple syrup-YUM! Summer visitors  shouldn’t be allowed to leave the state without trying a maple creemee. It may change them into 802 residents

At the moment it seems impossible to declare a winner. One must sample all at once to declare a clear winner. There should be an official VERMONT MAPLE CREEMEE  competition… that would be a worthwhile event!

Have a favorite? Let us know…
