Dear friends,

We are in a pickle and need your help. When Sweet Melissa's became independent from our previous business partners in 2018, we kept the original LLC. Unfortunately this means we inherited the debt that came with it, and we were not prepared. That, on top of many repairs and a few tax mistakes of our own, is why we're asking for so much.

It is no easy task, but we love the community of Montpelier and want to continue to host its creativity. The vibrant and colorful people who come in, dance, play music, or simply have a drink are dear to us. They are worth it.

We need your help to  maintain the wonderful atmosphere, and to keep a space where musicians and artists can share their craft with the community. Any and all support is appreciated and will not be taken for granted.

The Sweet Melissa's team
