Sturbridge Business Breakfast - June 12th with TEAM HOYT

The Town is excited to announce that the next quarterly business breakfast will take place at the new Holiday Inn Express on Tuesday, June 12th and will go from 8-9:30am. As usual we will take some time to talk about what projects the Town is currently working on, and you'll hear from the Sturbridge Business Advocacy Group. 

However this month we are adding something special. As you may be aware on September 9th the Town is hosting the first ever Rick Hoyt Sturbridge Half Marathon (click here to see website) in honor of our local hometown heroes Dick and Rick Hoyt. The Dick Hoyt will be our guest speaker for the breakfast and will talk about their incredible story and the half marathon. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and hear from local heroes and is something not to be missed.

This market is possible thanks to the continuing dedication of the Farmers Market Planning Committee.
