“The buzz of conversation was at perfect pitch,” said Barbara Sullivan, one of the event organizers for Project Sunapee. “It turned out to be a cross between a pep rally and a job fair capturing the spirit of community last felt at the old style town meetings.”
Volunteers and representatives from local non-profits and town and school groups set up informational displays, filling the main floor of the building.
“Thanks to all who participated and attended,” said Sue Mills for the Riverway. “It was very successful!”
Through out the afternoon, people stopped in, asked questions and offered suggestions, as they moved from display to display. For example,
– Michael Marquise, the town planner for Sunapee, explained elements of Sunapee’s Master Plan.
– Members of the Lake Sunapee Rowing Club provided information about rowing and their adaptive rowing program.
– Sunapee’s Covered Bridge Campaign told the “story of Sunapee’s covered pedestrian bridge” and displayed a recently completed wooden model of the bridge.
Sullivan said the event committee will “now go to work putting together a newsletter capturing the highlights and sharing the amazing assortment of ideas gleaned from the day.”
“We hope this will be the first of many similar events.”
Project Sunapee is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and encouraging economic vitality and education, cultural and historic assets, scenic landscapes and the social well being of the community.
