Happy Feet in the Upper Valley

Submitted a year ago
Created by

Nearly every Upper Valley resident hopscotches around the different towns. We do it to explore the back roads of Etna, to discover the holiday lights in Woodstock, or to eat hamburgers in South Royalton. Oftentimes, we are crossing that Connecticut River more times than we can imagine for any number of reasons. Whether to gas up, go to swim lessons, catch a movie, hit the slopes, see the doctor, or pick up a child at a birthday party, we are a back and forth population: from Thetford to Lyme, West Lebanon to White River, Windsor to Cornish.

In your trips around the Upper Valley, have you ever spotted a community supper outside of your own town and thought, "Well, that would be fun..." but then didn't go? This weekend, if you feel like checking out a community event in Norwich, you'll be welcome at the Community Grange Breakfast this Saturday from 8:30-11. Hosted by Mascoma Bank, professional volunteers -- not an oxymoron -- expertly prepare pancakes, hot coffee, juice, and, naturally, pure Vermont maple syrup, amongst other treats. Benefits go to the Haven as part of the 19 Days of Norwich and Beyond.

Oh, yeah, also...this guy will be there at 9.

Tomorrow, we answer the question on everyone's mind: how do beauticians make a difference?

19-14=5 to go!
