Come celebrate 10 years with LINKS !!! 

     It truly has been a wonderful journey to serve the Middlebury and Summit County area. We will be celebrating this wonderful milestone by bringing back the 70's. Dust off your platforms, bell bottoms, and peace signs  because there will be a prize for the best dressed in the 70's. Get ready for a soul train and much more!  

This will also be an opportunity to network with other local community leaders, non-profits and businesses in the area.
