    Time to celebrate

    It has been a long, tough construction season in Montpelier for merchants and shoppers alike. The paving is scheduled to finish in early November. Now it’s time to celebrate our resilience and come together as a community to support our downtown businesses. And have fun doing it together. We are inviting the community to join Vibrant and Affordable Montpelier for a cash mob on Saturday, Nov. 9. Please meet at the Statehouse steps at 2 p.m. with $20 cash in hand. Or more if you wish. The surprise destinations will be revealed and we’ll travel together to “cash mob” a few retailers. To keep the event festive, we will then gather for a really special Meet ‘n Greet at a surprise food and drink and music location downtown, where prizes will be raffled and the fun will continue.

    To find out more about the cash mob, you can join the Facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/1429975610555231/. You can also call Jane Kast at 223-1494 or Bob Gross at 223-6029.

    Everyone is welcome. It’s time to celebrate.
