    NEW HOLIDAY HUTS ON ALLEN STREET!

    Celebrate The Season 2021 Holiday Huts on Allen Street

    Allen Street will be hosting several non-profits outdoor huts to kick off the holiday season!

    Hanover Rotary Club will kick off its annual holiday bell ringing campaign in support of Listen’s Heating Helpers program.  Last year we rang our bells “virtually” via videos on a YouTube playlist.  Over 30 club members and other members of the Upper Valley community contributed short videos.  We invite folks to stop by our hut and record their own brief videos in support of Listen.  We’ll have scripts and cue cards for those who might need some assistance. In addition, we’ll be handing out promotional items from Coldwell Banker Lifestyles, Ledyard Bank, and Mascoma Bank.

    Positive Tracks is a Hanover based non-profit working at the national level to equip ages 12 to 25 with the tools, knowledge, and resources needed to change the world through the power of physical activity. We call it Sweating For Good. To date, Positive Tracks has helped 89,309 young people turn 430,754 miles and 143,600 hours of physical activity into advocacy, activism and $11,600,000 for causes shaping our future. Visit our Hut to learn more and to pick up some sweet fitness swag!
