Exciting Summer Events in Vershire!
A Rural Sampler of Fun & Interesting Things to Do
Some city folks may think there’s just not a lot going on out in the country. If you live in a larger town you may even look at this post and wonder, Where’s Vershire? Well, it’s pretty much in the middle of nowhere, or on the northwestern margin of the Upper Valley as far as the dailyUV.com audience is concerned, but that doesn’t stop us from filling our summers with great fun, productive planning and meetings, and enlightening community-based education.
Here’s just a sampling of the upcoming offerings of summer in Vershire. Please comment or contact me directly if you know of any additional listings or changes to this list. Otherwise, I’ll see you in Vershire this summer!
