A YEAR’S WORTH OF STOWE VIBRANCY
CHANNEL 5 FEATURES BRITISH INVASION
Downtown Block Party Honors Queen Elizabeth II
The British Invasion Car Show has been happening in Stowe for 31 years, featuring English-made cars. Over a decade ago, they turned it into a block party with music and food for anyone, car owner or not, to get in on the fun.
Stowe Vibrancy, the organizers behind the block party, said a “Queen Elizabeth” impersonator typically joins their block party festivities, but to respect the queen they canceled that tradition.
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MOVING ON
Stowe Vibrancy Begins Search for new Executive Director
After almost 4 years at the helm, Stowe Vibrancy’s Executive Director Aimée Green is moving on. Green, who has held the position since 2019, will be transitioning to the Barre Area Development Corporation as their next Executive Director in October.
During the Pandemic, with Green’s leadership, Stowe Vibrancy was instrumental in launching the effort to support residents and workers in Stowe through the C19 General Relief Fund. Over $120K was raised from donations for this fund which provided groceries and other essential needs directly to Stowe community members. Earlier this year the C19 fund wholly transferred to the newly formed Stowe Community Fund organization.
During her tenure Green led Stowe Vibrancy in reinventing and launching new arts, music and cultural events in Stowe such as the Best of Stowe, Main Street Live Music Series, and the Annual Indigenous Peoples’ Day Rocks! Additionally, Green’s work involved partnering with the Town of Stowe to support local business growth through economic development, infrastructure improvements, and beautification.
Green states she is: “..very proud of the incredible progress made in our community in the past 4 years, and our historic Village Center with our Downtown Designation through the State of Vermont, and sincerely appreciates the support of the Town and its many involved volunteers and generous businesses and individuals.” Stowe Vibrancy’s Board President, Elise McKenna added: “We are so grateful and appreciative of Aimee’s service to our community, especially all the behind the scene activities she did during the pandemic, and are looking forward to finding someone who can continue the good work Stowe Vibrancy does to enhance the vitality of all that is Stowe.”
Stowe Vibrancy’s Executive Director position is contracted, year-round, and part-time. Inquiries can be made by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
