MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
Thanks for contacting me. Sounds like a great start for Sullivan County! Let's stay in touch. Fyi, there's beginning to be a buzz for a regional get together, maybe next summer, and perhaps some conference calls to 'meet' each other before that.
Transition Town Montpelier is hosting a T4T this weekend, and I'm looking forward to meeting the folks coming there! They are mostly from VT, a good sprinkling of Canadians, and a few from other states.
Welcome Maria! Great to see you here on Transition U.S. and Transition New York. "...

If you haven't already done so, come and see the new US Transition Page . As this page develops, it will become a map of Transition resources across all ning sites. All 50 states are now active. Many state sites are brand new! Go to TRANSITION NEW YORK and sign in. Invite others. Enter some of your local events. Start Discussions. Make Transition! Have fun!
