Film Screening- One Town At A Time

Bethel, VERMONT – Vermont has 251 towns. Explore them all…One Town at a Time.

One Town at a Time (view the trailer for the film) is a documentary that explores Vermont through the lens of the 251 Club of Vermont. This event is free with a suggested donation of $10 and will be followed by a question and answer session with the film’s director, Mike Leonard. The entire program will last two hours.

Information about the film:
In the summer of 2006, between semesters at college, director Mike Leonard took on the
challenge of visiting every town in the state of Vermont by joining the 251 Club - a unique
organization dedicated to exploring The Green Mountain State. With his two best friends in
tow, he interviewed locals and visited some of Vermont’s most celebrated places. After living
outside Vermont for over a decade, Mike moved back home and decided to revisit the 251 Club
– returning to some of the same places and re-interviewing some of the same people he met 12
years ago. He witnessed how Vermont has changed, how it has stayed the same, and,
ultimately, how a humble wayfarer’s club shaped his identity forever. One Town at a Time is a
documentary film sharing this experience and invites others to hop in for a ride around
Vermont’s 251 towns and cities. The film will be screened in Bethel at The Arnold Block on
Saturday, August 10 th , 2019 at 7pm as part of a summer screening tour traveling around
Vermont.

One Town at a Time is a coming-of-age story that combines retro footage from 2006 with
contemporary footage to fully reflect on Vermont’s changing cultural and physical landscape. It
is firmly rooted in the community spirit that makes Vermont’s towns so special, including
diverse voices from across the state such as Former Governor Jim Douglas and Ben & Jerry’s co-
founder, Jerry Greenfield. In addition to the director’s experience, you will hear from 251 Club
members of all kinds and, after listening to their stories of traveling through Vermont, you’ll
want to start exploring as well.
