It’s grey, it’s cold, and there’s no snow yet… ahh it must be November in Vermont. Does anyone else feel like they’re waiting for the snow, waiting for the holidays, or just waiting someone to figure out daylight savings time is a really terrible idea!
That said, we really try to appreciate this month a bit more. So we’re thankful there are still lots of great local events happening to brighten up your November!
Start your weekend off right with a bonus lunchtime trip to the ice rink on Friday. Seriously the open ice at the Memorial Sports Center is such a hidden gem, we can’t say enough good things about them! Lunchtime open ice runs from noon-1:00 p.m.
Have you been to the Winter Farmer’s Market at Mary Hogan Elementary School yet? We haven’t but we’re guessing there are lots of delicious goodies to be had there. Hours are 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.
If you have a daughter in 7th or 8th grade, be sure to send them to the Sister-to-Sister Summit at the Mahaney Center for the Arts at Middlebury College. Sister-to-Sister offers fun and empowering monthly activities with college mentors and middle school girls throughout the school year. The Summit kicks off their season with a full day of fun!
Calling all Nordic skiers! The Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton is hosting an open house Saturday evening. Expect a tour of the snow making equipment, season passes and used equipment sales, as well as some light refreshments and a ski film that’s sure to get you in the mood for snow! 4:00p.m.-8:00p.m.
Get your wobble on at the Middlebury 36th annual Turkey Trot and Gobble Wobble Sunday. Burn off extra calories before the big day. Just think, if you race you will have totally earned that extra helping of stuffing this year! Plus you might just win a free turkey.
That’s all for now folks, December is right around the corner and we all know what that means. Very Merry Middlebury is coming! We can’t wait to share all the details with you soon.
What did we miss? Keep us in the know.
