Summer Recreation Program – Town of Wallingford, VT | Town of Wallingford, VT – Our Community (wallingfordvt.com)
The Town of Wallingford Recreation Committee is soliciting ideas from groups to use the Meadow St Park Concession Stand for fundraising. There will be a lot of sports activities at the park, including youth softball and baseball. We are hoping groups can schedule dates to sell snacks and drinks to the public. Please contact the town administrator at 446-2872 or email@example.com for more information or to sign up. There is electricity with a refrigerator, but water would need to be brought in. Please bring us your ideas!

If you know of residents who are in need of financial assistance for housing expenses, there are many state-wide programs available that are easy to access and have literally hundreds of millions of dollars behind them. Vermont Leagues of Cities and Towns (VLCT) compiled a list of resources in this document: Housing Resources for Vermonters in Need
Please be sure you are only tossing in acceptable items in the Zero Sort bin at the Wallingford Transfer Station. Acceptable items include: corrugated cardboard, cereal, shoe and dry food boxes, soda cartons, paper egg cartons, tissue boxes, paper towel and toilet paper cores, envelopes and mail, magazines and soft covered books, newspapers, white and colored paper, shredded paper, plastics 1-7 and rigid plastics, glass bottles and jars, aluminum cans, foils and plates, and metal cans.
Zero Sort does not accept styrofoam, plastic bags, food waste, no tyvex or plastic envelopes, no plastic wrapping or CDs, no newspapers that contain paint or pet waste, no plastics, glass or tin with food or other residue (must be rinsed).
