My one ‘bad habit’ is the fire department. I love it and find myself down there several times a week.
As dairy farmers, David and Cindy start their days well before sunrise and finish after sunset. And while dairy farming is more than a fulltime job, David's second love is the fire department. He has been involved with the West Pawlet Fire House for 19 years and has been the fire chief for the past three.
As fire chief, David also has to worry about money for the department. The town allocates funds each year to the department, but it's never enough. Cindy is president of the Ladies' Auxiliary, which raises the balance of the needed funds through auctions, turkey raffles, barbecues, and a carnival at the firehouse. In addition, Cindy is a club leader in 4-H, where she has been active for 28 years.
