It’s Game Dinner Season – Rupert/Tinmouth Nov. 19

More to come. Game suppers to benefit two other fire departments come later in the month in Rupert and Tinmouth.

 

For those who are too busy hunting or simple can’t make it to Pawlet’s Game Supper, the Tinmouth Volunteer Fire Department will host its 42nd annual Community Game Supper on Saturday, Nov. 19, starting at 4:30 p.m.

The meal will be held in the Tinmouth Community Center, located on Route 140 in Tinmouth. The Community Center is handicap accessible.

Like the Pawlet Game Supper, the Tinmouth Game Supper serves as a major fundraiser for the town’s fire department and attracts around 500 people every year, making it one of Vermont’s largest game suppers. Donations and contributions from state game wardens help to fill the steam tables with a wide variety of tasty treats from moose to venison.

The menu includes venison and moose sauerbraten, cornbread, chili, secret marinated roasts, Alan’s smoked moose, and Grandma Birdsall’s wild Italian meatballs.

The meal also includes more than 100 homemade pies.

The “all-you’d-like-to-eat” meal costs $15 for adults and $10 for anyone 12 and under. Kids 6 and under eat free.

For more information about the Tinmouth Game Supper, call Chief Marshall Squier at (802) 235-2718.

The annual Rupert Game Dinner to benefit the Rupert Volunteer Fire Department will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 as well at the Rupert Fire House on Route 153, serving begins at 5 p.m. and continues until all guests are served or the food is gone.  

The meal which includes moose, bear and venison costs $XX per plate with all of the proceeds to benefit the Rupert Volunteer Fire Department. Take out is available at the same cost.

Teriyaki moose, sweet and sour moose meatballs, wild game bird jambalaya, bear sauerbraten, bear meatloaf, venison stroganoff, venison sausage and meatballs and for those who elect not to eat wild game there will be turkey and roast beef.

As always the meal will be accompanied by real home made mashed potatoes, squash, cole slaw, Rupert Rising bread a beverage of choice and a slice of homemade pie for dessert.

Call Kelli Lewis for more information at 802-394-2491 or on the day of the dinner 802-394-7844.

Lewis said people enjoy the dinners for a number of reasons beyond the wonderful food, chief among them meeting new game enthusiasts from all around the neighborhood, region and even the country.

A tradition within the tradition, Lewis said she holds a bag of frozen meatball that are awarded annually to the diner who came the longest distance to attend.

She said a guest from California took the prize which was also claimed by a diner from Texas and from Connecticut over the years.

Although serving doesn’t begin until 5 p.m., Lewis said some returning patrons come early and set up an area at the tables and socialize until dinner starts.

Since the dinner is first come, first served those early birds are situated to be first in line. Not to worry, she said, everyone goes home having had plenty to eat.

Don’t concern yourself with cleaning up because the sixth graders from the Mettawee Community School will be busing tables for tips; those tips will help the class take their annual trip to Boston.

Like other game dinner this one raises fund to help the Rupert Fire Department operate and is one of their chief fundraisers of the year. The department will have a rifle raffle again this year as well as a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. Lewis said many take advantage of any time waiting to be served to check out the auction items and get their 50/50 and rifle tickets.
