Spring is here. Sort of — brrrrrr! But at least you can tell it’s spring because everybody is itching to get outdoors!
Maybe you could go for a bikeride by signing-up for the new Greenride Bikeshare that has set up unmistakable, bright green bike racks on campus and around Burlington. Or maybe you should first drop-in to the annual New American Safety Festival on Saturday, May 12th to get your kid a free bike helmet. Or maybe you just want to sit back to enjoy a discounted performance at the Flynn Theater.
There’s lots of goings-on in Burlington this spring — even if warmth isn’t one of them!
Join the BHS International Club & the BSD EL Department for a free dinner and Immigration Rights Information Session this upcoming Wednesday, March 28th at the Burlington High School Cafeteria from 5:30pm-7:00pm.
Then come to the Family Room at the O.N.E. Community Center on Thursday, April 5th at 11:30am for a Housing Rights Information Session.
Lots of different interpreters will be at each event. Check out the event flyers below for additional details.
1.) a situation or event that creates a sudden increase in wealth, good fortune, or profits, or
2.) a large amount of something desirable
Our friends at RISPnet and United Way Working Bridges have shared flyers (see below) about a bunch of community events that are happening this winter and spring. The most exciting is a kids bike giveaway, Bike Bonanza, that is being organized by Old Spokes Home (OSP) for low income Vermonters.
You should act quickly to preregister (click here) before the deadline of December 12th because OSP can only afford to giveaway 140 bikes.
In addition, the First Congregational Church UCC of Burlington continues to offer free legal clinics, and Mercy Connections is offering a range of training and education events — including a free citizenship preparation class.
Do you know anybody who is seeking citizenship? Let them know about a free, ongoing Citizenship Preparation Class that is being held at Mercy Connections (255 South Champlain St) every Tuesday from 1pm-3pm (see attached flyer).
