The Communication/Events Committee is excited to announce a community potluck to reflect on all we’ve accomplished since the Vermont Council on Rural Development community visit process in 2018. Anyone interested from the Wallingford community is welcome to bring a dish to share and take part in this event, and especially those of you who participated in those meetings! The Events, Communications, and Engagement group, the Economic Development Group, and the Recreation group will have visual displays of our work since the community visits and future directions, and there will be brief presentations before the meal. People will have the opportunity to sign up to be involved with ongoing projects and to suggest ideas and directions for them. The potluck will take place 5-7pm on February 9th in the WES gym. Potluck RSVP is here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040e49a9ab2caafd0-wallingford All family members are welcome.
