Event description
Sometimes you just need to get together with your neighbors, grab a drink, and talk about how the news is affecting your life.

About this Event

Wind down from the day and join us at the Robert. H Gibson River Garden in Brattleboro for a meet-and-greet with VPR reporters, including Southern Vermont Reporter Howard Weiss-Tisman, Upper Valley & Arts Reporter Betty Smith and Statehouse Reporter Peter Hirschfeld.

Meet the journalists dedicated to covering issues that matter to you and tell us about your community . What issues and stories matter most to the people where you live? And how are you approaching statewide issues at the local level — from economic development to fostering a thriving arts community?

Bring your thoughts, experiences and ideas for a fun evening of drinks and discussion.

No mics. No recorders. Just us. We hope to see you there!

Space is limited, so please register in advance.
