FREE & Open to the public
The Bridging Committee of the Leverett Alliance hosted 11 folks from Letcher County KY the weekend of Oct 27-30, all participating in dialogues, meeting the public at a community forum, contra dancing and shape-note singing. The success of the weekend in bridging two very different communities was exhilarating. Come hear members of the Bridging Committee speak about their experience.
