A Conversation About Brattleboro and Blue Zones 5/1/24

Residents are invited to join Compassionate Brattleboro in Community Compassion Conversations coming up, beginning on May 1 at Brooks Memorial Library.

From 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday guests will explore: "Connection and Community: Can Brattleboro Learn from ‘Blue Zones?’" Some communities, called "Blue Zones," have been identified around the world as individuals who not only live longer but also appear to have an enhanced sense of purpose and connection. Could Brattleboro emulate these communities? Panelists for the discussion include: Kate Anderson, arts advocate and town government activist; John Marinelli, local entrepreneur; Doug Cox, violin maker; and moderator Jim Levinson.
