We have a few ideas for your Saturday, February 1, 2014.

SUMMER CAMP FAIR

If you're already thinking about which summer camp you might want to send the kids to, you can check them out at the Burlington Hilton from 10 AM to 2 PM. Representatives from dozens of camps and schools from all over the region will be there so you can ask them face-to-face about their programs.

BREAKFAST FOR DINNER

Are you ready for a change from your ordinary dinner routine? Then come have Breakfast for Dinner and help support the Ascutney Volunteer Fire Department from 5pm - 7pm at the Martin Memorial Hall - $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-10, and under 5 is free.
