Accio Hogwarts Fun!

The first ever Hogwarts Family Day event was produced by ACT’s Youth Empowerment Committee as an intergenerational event for the community. Nearly  250 persons  were transported into a clever, fun, free community event celebrating all things Harry Potter!

Thank you for your hard work committee members and thank you to all of the community members and businesses that showed such incredible support for this worthwhile event!!!

Governor Recognizes May as Vermont Youth Appreciation Month

May is Vermont Youth Appreciation Month

Four years ago, a group of Bennington area youth drafted a statewide resolution to establish a Vermont Youth Appreciation Day. This celebration was a call to action in response to YRBS data that reflected the low rates of VT youth that feel they matter to our communities.

A joint resolution was passed and this home-grown event has blossomed significantly in the years since. This year on Thursday, April 28th at 12:30 pm, Governor Peter Shumlin will sign a proclamation declaring the month of May as Vermont Youth Appreciation Month in his Ceremonial Office at the statehouse in Montpelier.

When: Thursday, April 28, 2016
Time: 12:30 PM
Where: Governor’s Ceremonial Office, Statehouse, Montpelier, Vermont
