Name: Eliza Trowbridge
Interests/Hobbies: Riding and spending time with my horse, playing soccer, reading, playing the piano, and going to church with friends and family.
Earliest memory of Syrup Festival: When I was 3, my brother put me in the “jail” on Main Street.
Desire for representing Maple Syrup Festival: The Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival is my favorite time of year. I have been dreaming of becoming queen since my very first festival when I was three years old. The festival is an event that raises money for many people in Vermontville, and it also raises the spirits of everyone who comes. I love how the Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival brings together so many different types of people. Representing a festival that helps my town financially, makes people happy, creates opportunities for friendships that will last forever, and of course is all about delicious maple syrup is truly a dream come true.
