Hebron Maple Festival is this weekend

Editor’s note: The Douglas Library will not hold regular Saturday hours on March 10; the library will be closed since the rest of the town will be humming with activity at the annual Maple Fest and the library’s parking lot is used by festival goers. The library will reopen for normal business hours on Monday at 1 p.m. For more information, call the library at (860) 228-9312.

The sweet tastes, smells and sights of the Hebron Maple Festival will return again this weekend.

Now in its 22nd year, the festival truly encompasses the entire town, not just in participation but in layout and the popular event draws thousands of visitors from all over the state – and even out of state – as well.

Those in the know arrive early, especially if you want to buy maple syrup at the sugar houses.

The 2012 Hebron Maple Fest will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 10 and 11.

Hebron is home to several maple sugar houses, where activities and self-guided tours are planned, but many of Hebron’s businesses and non-profit organizations also take part in the two-day schedule of events.

Some events are held at stores, churches and town facilities, and others are set up at booths along Main Street.

A full listing of events, contests, giveaways, demonstrations, special breakfasts, a downloadable copy of the brochure in PDF format (including a map), and so much more, is available on the Maple Fest web site at www.hebronmaplefest.com

Participating sugarhouses include: Woody Acres, 80 Cone Road; Pierce’s Sugar House, 325 W. Main St.; and Wenzel’s Sugar House, 522 East St.  This year also features a new sugar house, Hill’s House on Route 85. All will be open for tours and demonstrations.

As well as tours, exhibits and activities, all things maple will be offered for the public.

These range from the Hebron Historical Society’s sale of maple milk at the Old Town Hall to the Hebron Volunteer Fire Department’s popular sugar on snow and the Hebron Interfaith Human Services’ maple cotton candy at Hebron Fire Company No. 1.

Of course, maple syrup will be offered, well, everywhere.

Ron Wenzel, owner of Wenzel’s Sugar House, said the mild winter hasn’t affected his operation.

“The snow that we had last year was just right,” he said, but, “the sap production for me is about the same as a normal year, 50 to 60 gallons of syrup.”

Making that amount of syrup means Wenzel collected at least 3,300 gallons of sap from the trees he’s tapped around his property.

All the sappy goodness will be available for personal analysis and comparison at the festival.

There also will be all the traditional festival fare – fried dough, hot dogs and hamburgers, kettlecorn and more.

Opening ceremonies on Saturday begin at 9:45 a.m. at Liberty Square Collectibles at 105 Main St.

A variety of events are planned for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

For example, he nonprofit organization Wingmasters will exhibit birds of prey both days at the AHM Youth Services building at 25 Pendleton Drive, to benefit the family programs.

And the Hebron Historical Society will host the annual, very popular Quilt Show at the Old Town Hall on both days. Donations are requested to view the quilt exhibit to benefit historical society programs.

The Farmer’s Cow – a cooperative of six dairy farms from eastern Connecticut producing milk, cream, ice-cream, eggs and other products for local grocery stores – will share a booth at the Maple Fest with the Hebron Historical Society.

Adjacent to Old Town Hall will be a truck from Farmer’s Cow, which will serve ice cream samples and accept donations to benefit the town’s land acquisition fund, which is used to preserve open space.

One of the six farms in the cooperative is Maple Leaf Farm of Hebron, owned by the Ellis family.

This is the second year that representatives from the Farmer’s Cow have sponsored a booth at the Maple Festival.

“The society is pleased to support Farmer’s Cow in honor of Hebron’s long history of dairy farming,” said Hebron Historical Society President Donna McCalla.

She added, “We want to make sure that residents and visitors know that any volunteer donations will directly benefit the Hebron Open Space Land Acquisition Fund.”

Will Gov Malloy’s education ‘reforms’ hurt small towns?

Rep. Sawyer said towns like Andover are doing everything they can to help their schools. “The town is willing to put so much time and money into their schools,” said Sawyer. “Why would you then penalize them for their hard work?” Under the governor’s proposal, school districts that meet the criteria but fail to regionalize would lose 10 percent of their state aid the first year, with 10 percent increments each year up, to a maximum loss of 50 percent by the fifth year.

Andover officials are worried about the negative impact Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s education reform bill may have on the town.

The governor wants to regionalize school districts with populations under 1,000 students, and those where per-pupil expenditure exceeds the state per-pupil average, effective the 2015-16 fiscal year.

Thirty-one of the state’s school districts could be affected including regional school districts in Scotland, Hampton, Chaplin, Franklin, Columbia and Willington.

Andover is also on that list — with a catch.

Andover’s per pupil spending, which was $12,282 in fiscal year 2011, isn’t in excess of the state per-pupil average.

But Andover Superintendent Andrew Maneggia is still concerned.

“I’m worried about a lot of the legislation at this time,” Maneggia said. He added that  he is most worried about the possible regionalization of Andover Elementary School.

Andover, which was regionalized with Hebron and Marlborough several years ago, currently isn’t and Maneggia says he knows it doesn’t work for the younger schoolchildren.

“We went through (regionalization),” said Maneggia. “As far as the regionalizing of grades 7 through 12, it makes sense, but at this level it doesn’t.”

State Rep. Pam Sawyer – whose district includes Hebron, Andover and Marlborough – said she “highly disagrees” with the proposed legislation.

“They used to have four different elementary schools (in three towns),” Sawyer said and recalled that the single superintendent responsible for the district couldn’t focus on every school. “Since they have broken off, every town’s scores have gone straight up. They are all doing very well now.”

Under the governor’s proposal, school districts that meet the criteria but fail to regionalize would lose 10 percent of their state aid the first year, with 10 percent increments each year up, to a maximum loss of 50 percent by the fifth year.

Currently, the state sends $78.8 million each year to the 49 towns with fewer than 1,000 students that don’t spend above the amount the state deems acceptable. (There are more towns than districts because some towns fall below Malloy’s criteria even though they already belong to regional districts.)

Andover received $3,057,025 in fiscal year 2011 and would lose more than $300,000 if it were to be penalized.

Sawyer said she knows Andover currently wouldn’t be affected by the legislation, but is still worried. “It doesn’t mean they won’t in the future,” she said “One of the concerns I have is that it penalizes school systems that are doing well.”

Sawyer said she sees Malloy’s plan as “counterproductive.”

“Why would you want to disrupt success?” asked Sawyer. “Why would you do that? Especially when the focus should be on the larger schools that have the greatest failure rate.”

Sawyer pointed out that the smaller districts only have personal property taxes to fund the schools. “These schools don’t have the support that help fund education like the bigger, more commercialized towns and cities do,” said Sawyer.

“I believe it is essential that we look for state support of education that is balanced and balances out the tax structure somewhat,” she said.

Sawyer said towns like Andover are doing everything they can to help their schools. “The town is willing to put so much time and money into their schools,” said Sawyer. “Why would you then penalize them for their hard work?”

Sawyer, who has been visiting teachers in all of her towns, said this session is going to be “very interesting.”

“Not only does every legislator have a school, every legislator went to school and many have children that are still in school,” said Sawyer. “How does this plan help the children?”

Maneggia said there still needs to be “a lot of discussion” about all of Malloy’s education reform proposals.

“(Malloy) is approaching it the wrong way,” said Maneggia. “It would be better off saying we have these benefits that you can gain rather than penalizing towns financially.”
