The 251 Club of Vermont, celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2014, exists to encourage members to visit all of the state's 251 towns and cities. Now the task has been made more convenient and enjoyable with the publication of a new travel journal designed specifically for the Vermont explorer.
"This project is as purely Vermont as a quart of maple syrup," says Sandy Levesque, club director and editor of the journal. "Vintage Vermont postcards from another century provide the design element and contemporary lists of travel resources, such as maps, books, and websites, are included. Every element, from editing to design to physical production, was handled in Vermont."
All of Vermont's 255 civic/geographic entities or "places" -- 237 towns, nine cities, five unorganized towns, three gores, and one grant -- are listed alphabetically, along with their charter, grant or patent date, on 160 lightly-lined writing pages. Once completed, the book will be a unique and highly personalized account of the owner's Vermont experience.
The 6" x 9" journal is a perfect traveling companion, deliberately sized to fit in glove compartments, purses, backpacks, briefcases, and totes. It has a durable cover and spiral binding to facilitate writing on-the-go. Printed on cream-colored, acid-free, archival paper the Vermont Travel Journal is designed to preserve memories and become a treasured keepsake.
With over 4,000 members, the 251 Club of Vermont is one of the largest membership organizations in the state. For information on the club, or to order a copy of the Vermont Travel Journal, visit vt251.com or call 802-234-5039.
