Community Info Meeting Highlights

I. Introduction

II.What is High Vibe?

High Vibe Society is about creating a space for people looking for positive, motivating, inspiring and meaningful associations with others who feel the same. It is about providing our community with a safe space for people to express themselves, to discuss ideas..no matter how off-the-wall they may be, and to meet like-minded individuals to collaborate and connect. It is about building lasting relationships that go beyond our walls and out into our community to make our town a better place to live, work, and recreate in. 

At High Vibe Society, we are using our art, whether it’s music, poetry, pottery, or paintings, to make you uncomfortable; to challenge what you think you know about yourself, your world, and the way you interact with it.
