Greetings, readers! This month in What’s Happening, the focus will literally be on what’s happening! New and prospective homeowners often ask us for recommendations on what to do for excitement in the NEK. We decided to use this platform to share a few of the many upcoming events, concerts, festivals and attractions in our area this summer. Some of these are new offerings and some are old favorites, back after last year’s COVID hiatus. All of them are fun! We are all so lucky to live in a community where businesses, volunteer organizations and individuals work together to make things happen. Our agents and staff want to wish you all a spectacular summer and are very much looking forward to seeing friends out enjoying all the Northeast Kingdom has to offer.
