The Green Street School Tulip Trot 5K and 0.5 mile Sprout Run, a fundraiser to support a variety of PTO projects and initiatives, was held on Saturday, May 4. With close to 250 runners and walkers, over 50 volunteers, and many enthusiastic supporters in attendance, the event was a success on many levels, and the folks who brought this vision to life could not have done so without the generosity of many individuals, businesses, and organizations. We would like to thank the many sponsors who provided financial support for this event:

Living Memorial Park Snow Sports, Inc. has a lot to be grateful for: a long and deep 2012-13 winter season, a loyal and growing cast of volunteers, eager and energetic BUHS Community Service workers, skiers and snowboarders from here and away who enjoy Park Hill and willingly pay $5 for lift tickets, and an appreciative, supportive Brattleboro community. Added to all this, LMPSS is grateful for being the beneficiary of this year’s $10,000 Plunge at the Marina on May 5, and for a $6,000 grant from the Windham Foundation to help fund replacement of the T-bar lift cable.

Thanks to all who have made this a great year for Snow Sports!
