Event: Learn to play Bocce at VFFC on Wednesdays for August & September


Vermont Farmers Food Center


On Wednesdays for the rest of the summer season from 6 pm to 8 pm (8-27-14, 9-3-14, 9-10-14, 9-17-14, and 9-24-14), Rutland City residents are invited, weather permitting, to come to play at “learn to play bocce night” at Vermont Farmers Food Center’s (VFFC) newly constructed bocce court at 253 West Street in front of the VFFC’s community gardens and Winter Farmers Market.

VFFC, in collaboration with the newly formed North West Neighborhood Association, NeighborWorks of Western Vermont and Project VISION, will host the event, bringing neighbors together to watch, learn, and /or add their expertise on the game and how bocce is played.

People can also just come to enjoy the summer evening outside with the neighbors. Bring your chairs, bocce balls, and picnic supper to VFFC for a night of fun. The new bocce court was constructed by VFFC in collaboration with the North West Neighborhood Association with matched grant funding provided by NeighborWorks of Western Vermont.

All neighborhoods in the City are welcome! Neighborhood leagues will be forming soon. Come be part of the action and please help get the word out on this event. In case of rain, event will be held inside the Farmers Hall, site of the Winter Farmers Market. Volunteers are being recruited to help teach the game on site evenings at the site.

For more information, contact Kathleen Krevetski at 802 -779-1485.
