Planning the Future of the Shires
Members of business sectors from the north and south shires and the mountain communities have met since early spring at several informal social and informative gatherings: in May at Manchester’s Equinox Valley Nursery; in June at the Southern Vermont Arts Center; and again in July at Bennington’s Project Independence. Their next event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 17, at the Arlington Inn. This is the last meet up before the group’s planned September Summit; people from throughout the Shires are invited to come together to further discuss the future of the Shires and how best to promote commerce and tourism throughout the region. The Shires Working Group invites all interested parties to become part of the future and part of the solution. A lively Q and A is expected! A cash bar and refreshments will be available.
