Vital Communities' Keeping You Connected #cbhm #cbhm2016 #VT #NH #LebRecreation #VermontTourism #halfmarathons #WoodstockVT

Need something last minute for the race? We've got ya covered! Check out our Local First Alliance Business Directory for a list of great resources that are right around the corner. Local First Alliance is a program of Vital Communities that engages businesses, organizations, and citizens to strengthen our local economy. Recognizing that regional prosperity grows from communities actively building economies that sustain the places we love — we work to promote, encourage, and support our Upper Valley businesses.

Vital Communities’ work is at the heart of a vibrant Upper Valley region. We bring citizens, organizations, and municipalities together to take on issues where an independent voice and regional approach are essential. Our programs focus on local food, local economy, civic engagement, transportation, energy, and sense of place. Working together, we make our region a better place to live, work, and play every day.

See you in June for the 25th Anniversary CBHM!
