For the third year, the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association is organizing Operation Vermont Maple Sweetness 2007 which will package the donated syrup into one pint containers and ship them to bases in Iraq. Over 800 gallons of syrup were sent in 2006. The syrup sent last year resulted in numerous heartfelt e-mails from the troops. The deadline for donations of syrup is April 29 in order to have the syrup in the soldiers hands by Memorial Day. This years drop off locations Addison: Moe Rheaume Middlebury; Dakin Farms Ferrisburg. Rutland: Truman Young Tinmouth; Richard Green Poultney; Bob Wood - Pawlet.
