Williston celebrates 250 years of Town Meeting with this recreation of the first town meeting.  

From an article by Bill Skiff in the Willsiton Observor: "A group of citizens will perform an old-time Town Meeting play, featuring controversial topics debated in years past—including actual dialogue from town records. Come learn whether the west boundary of Abell’s farm was by the old crooked tree or by the large red rock. Help us elect a road commissioner and see if we can get the muddy, cruddy “ruds” fixed by spring. At the top of the agenda is whether Williston should be wet or dry. Challenging times are ahead for the town. We need your help. Vermont’s first governor, Thomas Chittenden, will also be in attendance. Bring your camera to have your picture taken with the governor—a once–in-a-lifetime opportunity. Come and help Williston embark on it’s 250th celebration in style. Bring your spirits, your food and your family to Williston’s Town Meeting dinner theater. Monday, March 4, 6 p.m. at Williston Central School’s Cafeteria BE THERE OR BE TAXED."
