A new year often signifies a new beginning for many of us. We feel a renewed sense of purpose and drive. It is a time to start fresh. Perhaps to become healthier through fitness or diet, to become more organized in our home, to treat ourselves and our families better - there are many possibilities of what new things to try to better your life. Join us on Saturday, January 26 from 3-6PM at the New Durham School to help guide you to a bright and positive 2019!

We'll have a wide array of businesses on hand to talk to you about your 2019 goals as well as free workshops you can attend. Details on event and workshop schedule TBA.

The new year is here and if you've hit some stumbling blocks in your resolutions you may be discouraged but you don't have to be. Every new day is another chance to get on track and sometimes all you need is a little encouragement.

Interested in being a vendor or representing your business at our event? Registration is $15 (free for non-profits) and can be completed below. Tables and chairs can be provided on a first-registered, first-served basis. Vendors who provide an intro class or workshop will have their space fee waived. You can talk to Nichole about this possibility at or 859.5666.
