Annual Party

And What a Party It Was...

Over 200 people gathered at Burlington's Intervale Center on Sunday, September 22 to celebrate Local Motion and honor Chapin Spencer.  Local Motion's founder and executive director stepped down in August to become Director of Public Works for the City of Burlington.  It was a heck of a party, with music from Brett Hughes, food and beer from vendors American Flatbread, The Lazy Farmer and Southern Smoke.

Best of all, photographer Ben Sarle was on hand to take portraits of fans of Chapin and supporters of Local Motion with chalkboard messages about what they like best about the organization and its founder.  We've shared a selection of the photos above. Watch for more in the weeks to come.
