Burlington is bursting with civic-minded people who act on their convictions… from shoveling a neighbor’s sidewalk to taking on drug dealing. The City throws a great annual party — Neighborhood Night of Success — to celebrate people and projects, share a meal and music, and mingle. I recommend attending… March 25, 2009. Also, Ita Meno is looking for nominations!
To show how long we’ve been at this… Front Porch Forum was recognized at the very first NNS in 2001 and then again in 2007.
Ita, the key organizer, invited me on to her talk show to chat about it.
P.S. Ita is leaving her position with CEDO, so the NPAs won’t have her as a resource any longer… a real loss! Best wishes to her in her new position and I hope CEDO hires well when finding her replacement!
