PUTNEY -- Landmark College will host one of the area's largest athletic events this weekend as 14 teams from southern Vermont and New Hampshire will compete in the 26th annual Putney Soccer Tournament.
"It's great to have such a strong community partner to help make this happen," said Cheryl Struthers, treasurer and past president of the Putney Recreation League. "Everyone at Landmark College, from facilities to the athletic department to the students and staff, has been fantastic in helping make this event possible. We couldn't do this without Landmark's support."
The tournament is a round robin format between teams of fourth, fifth, and sixth grade co-ed soccer teams from Brattleboro, Chesterfield, N.H., Dummerston, Guilford, Hinsdale, N.H., Kurn Hattin, Westminster, and Putney.

As an example, we provide an annual contribution to the town of Putney that helps defray the expense of their extraordinary emergency services staff and facilities. Recently, we also contributed funds to study the feasibility of a safe pedestrian and bicycle link between the college and Putney downtown," said Senior Vice President Brent Betit.
