Conference kicks off tomorrow


Months of planning are coming to an end, and we're just a day away from the 2008 Vermont Statewide Housing Conference.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. tomorrow at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in South Burlington. Our first session starts at 9 a.m.

We've placed directions to the Sheraton and floormaps of the venue on our Web site.

Finally, a last reminder about Vermont Housing Finance Agency's food drive: We hope you'll bring a non-perishable food item and drop it off at the registration desk. Donations will benefit the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf.

Welcome contributions include: Cereal, low-sugar; peanut butter; baby food, baby formula, diapers; canned soup, low-sodium; tuna; canned fruit, in juice or light syrup; pork and beans; canned vegetables, low-sodium; tomato/spaghetti sauce; dry pasta, such as spaghetti and macaroni; rice; juice; and meals in a can.

Items to avoid: sugary snacks, instant desserts, soda and candy.

See you tomorrow!
