Plus one more day of Made In Burlington's Winter Marketplace
Good Morning, Burlington!
It was great seeing some of you yesterday at the MIB Winter Marketplace. It will still be happening today, from 11-4, and I hope you check it out even though I won’t be selling. If you’re interested in any of the Buzz merchandise we had at the table, get in touch. We still have a few small and large stainless steel tumblers, some ceramic mugs, and a select few t-shirts.
This Week in Burlington
The week appears stacked toward the beginning, but I suspect it’s because of the 48-hour rule: groups holding open meetings must get their agendas posted a minimum of 48 hours before their meetings, and with the holiday on Friday, there was one fewer day to do that. All this to say that I suspect more late-week meetings will pop up.
One thing you won’t see is the DEI Committee quarterly report on Monday’s Select Board Agenda. Again, due to the the holiday, the clock ran out on getting this item onto the agenda, and so hopefully this item will appear on the 11/28 agenda.
