The Halifax Celebration Committee has decided to postpone the 2020 Old Home Day Celebration until the summer of 2021 due to Covid-19.  It is in the best interest of our community, town and guests to postpone and keep everyone safe.  It is with a heavy heart we make this decision, as we love creating these special days for our amazing Town. We will continue to plan and schedule for next summer.  As always we would love any input or suggestions you may have.  Please stay tuned for the 2021 Old Home Day highlights.

Release of the Southeastern Vermont COVID-19 Resources for Individuals Guide

During this uncertain time of the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be very confusing to know where to go locally to learn about resources that can be useful. A new COVID-19 resource guide, aimed at individuals living in southeastern Vermont, is now available. This resource list is a compilation of currently known programs and activities relevant to people living in southeastern Vermont.  The resource can be found on the Windham Regional Commission’s website by visiting  If you are in immediate need of assistance, call Vermont’s resource line by dialing 2-1-1 about help and resources.

The initial resource guide for the Windham Region was compiled by Groundworks Collaborative, Windham County United Way, the Town of Brattleboro Sustainability Coordinator, and the Windham Regional Commission. This resource guide is meant to be a living document that will be updated on a regular basis. With the changing nature of this pandemic, individual needs, and community response to it, you can help keep it current and up to date. Updates and suggestions are welcome through an electronic form on the guide webpage.

A message from Green Up Vermont
Following safety guidelines set by our state and federal governments, we are hoping that by pushing Green Up Day out an additional 4 weeks, we will have more knowledge about Covid-19. Currently with so many closings and the “stay at home” order, we would have extreme difficulty distributing all of the Green Up Day materials which were scheduled to begin the first week in April. Distribution of supplies will now happen the first week in May.
