Gallery Walk Ambassadors say thanks

WEST BRATTLEBORO — Friday was a great Gallery Walk in Brattleboro with perfect weather, lots of activity, and Diversity Day bringing new folks and great spirit.

It was the inauguration of Gallery Walk Ambassadors, a volunteer effort by the Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) to ensure that Gallery Walk is enjoyed, appreciated, and safe for all.

As the one who wore the bright vest with the Gallery Walk logo, I want to thank everyone for helping us succeed.

It is important, particularly during Gallery Walk, that everyone obey the pedestrian crossing lights. Folks from out of town don't understand our complex traffic turning patterns, and it is important that local folks set a good example. The last thing Gallery Walk needs is blood on the street.

The Ambassador program will continue over the summer, and volunteers are needed to talk with guests from out of town and be a presence for safety.

If you would like to serve Gallery Walk and our community in this way, please contact Greg Worden at Vermont Artisans (802-257-7044 or [email protected]).
