    Harvest Social, Oct. 27

    Here's a copy of our flyer on our Vermont Harvest Social and some first-
    hand info on crossing the border to get to it.
    
    Took us about thirty seconds to cross into Canada last weekend.  And
    about two minutes to cross back into the US as they ask to look in the
    trunck.   We were so fast because there were so few other cars.  But
    dont't try to go when it's normally heavy traffic:  Sunday, late
    afternoon or evening, either direction, and Monday to Friday when people
    are getting to or leaving work.  The line of cars waiting builds up to
    miles long.
    
    Hope to see you at the
                     	VERMONT HARVEST SOCIAL
