What a weekend! First, the weather—a beautiful Saturday with temperatures in the 60s. followed by the sharp decline in temperature and falling snow. This is fall in Vermont!
Hope you were able to get out and enjoy our City this weekend—whether a walk on one of our many trails, a bike ride on the recreational path, or playing in the falling snow. Don’t forget that our parks are open for the winter, with limited facilities—but a great place to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
FAMILY BINGO NIGHT
There were several things happening this weekend here in the City, including Family Bingo Night hosted by the Recreation and Parks department. Families gathered at F.H. Tuttle Middle School to play the always competitive and exciting game of BINGO! Families gathered round and letters and numbers were called—while each one hoped to fill their card and call out BINGO! Look at the great baskets that were won! The next Family Bingo Night will be held in the spring.
COOKIE WALK AT SB COMMUNITY LIBRARY
Sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chip….there were dozens and dozens of cookies that were purchased this weekend at the South Burlington Community Library. A turkey cookie station was set up for children to create their own turkey cookies. Folks were able to buy a variety of cookies throughout the day to take home. The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Library, with all proceeds going to support library programming.
