Special thanks to Jeannie Hebert, President and CEO of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce, for inviting me to be a guest at the Chamber’s table during the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce Expo 2017, and tell folks about Easy Walks in Massachusetts. We had great conversations with folks from all over the valley, signed some books, and met lots of people who love to spend time outdoors.

While at the Expo we took time to visit lots of the vendor booths and met business people and non-profits offering all manner of services to area residents. We sampled clam chowder, which came in astonishing varieties–some thick and creamy, others offering a broth that was more soup-like and nicely spiced. Some chowder featured corn, others added chorizo, one even put lobster in their chowder.

Expos typically offer lots of give-aways to attendees, and this event was no exception. Bite-sized candy bars were on several tables, sunglasses, pens, post-it notes and loads of raffle prizes tempted visitors. Koopman’s Lumber offered large, bright orange plastic pails that will come in handy for home projects, but for today, the buckets were a great “catch-all” for bunches of free stuff offered to attendees.

Events like this are a lot of work, so thanks again for all the businesses who supported the Expo, and for everyone who turned out. And to all who stopped by and checked out our books I say, Happy Trails!
