Praise for Belong in Burlington
- “Great program! I really learned a lot.”
- “I recently retired and had been working outside of town. It was a great way to get re-acquainted with the city. A very warm and welcoming event. The childcare was an excellent added incentive for new families to attend. I had a wonderful time…”
- “I think it was a good mix of information. I really liked how you had enough people at each station so that people were greeted as they walked up (even if another person was already talking to someone).”
- “We were very glad we attended. We walked away with the impression that the city of Burlington was being managed by people that are really on top of the jobs they are doing and really want to be as excellent as they can be.”
- “We were very impressed with the event and have nothing to compare it to to offer suggestions for improvement, we met new people, learned about resources in the community, and are looking forward to attending future events. Thank you!"
