Weekly Buzz | Winter Guide Will Connect Residents With Resources and Activities
Add your story today
Good Morning, Burlington!
Burlington Buzz spends a lot of time working on finding new ways to connect Burlington residents with the information, activities, and support they need in town. As a next step in that work, we will be creating seasonal guides to town. The goal is to highlight businesses, non-profits, activities, and municipal information & events (When is Christmas tree pickup? When does the overnight parking ban begin and end? Where can I get winter coats for myself and my children?) that will be useful to residents in the winter.
You can expect this guide to land in your inbox in mid-November, and between now and then, we’d love to hear what stories you’d like to share. What are your favorite winter-related activities, stories, or hidden gems around Burlington? Share yours by responding to this email or clicking the button below, and help make the first Buzz Guide to Winter something truly useful that will live up to the Buzz’s mission of community connection!
You can support the Buzz for just 16 cents per day!
