HARDWICK – On March 9, over 40 people from 16 different towns in our area (and one from San Diego!) joined a virtual town party, hosted by Brent McCoy of Vermont Vaudeville, and organized by the Hardwick Area Neighbor to Neighbor group.
The majority of attendees were from Hardwick and Craftsbury and spanned generations in age. The party alternated between full group activities and small breakout groups, with the technology demands orchestrated by Paul Fixx and Jake Lester.
On a follow-up survey, over 95% of participants noted that the event was either a “total hoot” (65%) or “very engaging (30%). Among the many comments were: “It was so nice to see so many familiar faces and meet new people as well”, and “The format, the fun questions, great MC, and connecting in a joyful space with others.”
The Hardwick Area Neighbor to Neighbor group will host similar events in October, January, and March.
