Yankee Magazine’s January/February Issue

“How We Heat”— by Ken Sheldon (page 18): It takes all kinds to stay warm in New England, from the “fireplace fanatic” to the “heater hermit.”

“Local Treasure: Candlepin Bowling in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts”— by Aimee Seavey (page 24):
Believed to be the second-oldest candlepin venue in the country, the eight lanes at the Shelburne Falls Bowling Alley have been welcoming folks “through the alley to the alley” since 1906, just 26 years after candlepin got its start in the central Massachusetts city of Worcester. While similar to tenpin bowling, candlepin uses narrower pins and smaller balls, noticeably lacking finger holes. The sport has also remained mostly in New England—a regional exclusivity that can pose a peculiar sight for out-of-town visitors.

“Could You Live Here?” (page 108): Yankee’s newest department explores the community vibe in Essex, Connecticut, a small town steeped in history and tradition with a bucolic setting on the Connecticut River.

“Calendar of Events” and “Well Worth the Drive” (page 117): State by state listings of events, plus one highlighted “Well Worth the Drive” event in each state: 24th Winter Carnivale in Chester, Connecticut; U.S. National Toboggan Championships in Camden, Maine; “West Side Story” in Boston, Massachusetts; New Hampshire Sanctioned Snow Sculpting in Jackson, New Hampshire; Celebration of Twelfth Night & Peasants’ Feast in Westerly, Rhode Island; and Snowshoe Festival in Waterbury Center, Vermont.
