GOLD : Linda Lavallee for being the ambassador coordinator for many years. Her many hours of work recruiting, training, organizing this team is monumental. As well she coordinates communication email letters that go out to new members. Thank you for your continuing years of dedication.
GOLD: Justin Graham was nominated previously for his many years of dedicated service as Bus Captain coordinator. For the 2019-2020 season, as Assistant-Director of Day Trips. Justin has worked tirelessly with his team to support the bus captains who make sure that buses go out four days a week or as scheduled. This past year, Justin dedicated a lot of personal time on his weekly demanding duties, which included: adjusting Day Trips modules, monitoring registrations, and making decisions as to how may buses were going where. Not always easy, especially when weather threats arise between Thursday night and Saturday. Present on FB and a strong communicator, Justin also replied to countless emails from members who needed a registration altered, or who simply had a question. This is a critical job, the heart of our day trip operations. All downhill skiers and snowboarders thank you, Justin!!

Any question asked about the club’s administration – Mary knows the answer. Mary was also a downhill instructor and an overnight trip leader. Its thanks to Mary’s and other life time members dedication and volunteering that our club runs as a well oiled machine without stopping for 70 years. Thank you Mary!

Sandi’s wisdom is appreciated by number of the Boards . Thank you Sandi!
