Dear Friends,

This 2018 Spotlight celebrates some of our noteworthy work during our last fiscal year (July 2017–June 2018).

We hope you feel as inspired as we do by the positive impacts you’ve helped achieve right here in the Upper Valley.

We’re so grateful to you—our donors, volunteers, business and foundation supporters, and community members—for what we’ve accomplished together over the past year.

For 25 years, Vital Communities has been bringing people together to cultivate the civic, environmental, and economic vitality of the Upper Valley. When our communities work together, we find innovative ways to move forward on the challenges we all face. This is the unique approach Vital Communities brings every day to a spectrum of regional issues. You’ll see this reflected in the highlights shared here.

As we celebrate the past quarter century of catalyzing positive change in the Upper Valley, we’re excited about what the next 25 years hold. We hope you’ll join us throughout 2019 as we reflect on the long-term impact of our work—and build connections, discovering new ways to take action on the issues we all care about in the Upper Valley.

Thank you for being part of this work.

Tom Roberts
Executive Director

Jenny Levy
