As the weather ushers in colder evenings, here in Vermont we begin to think about our busy winter season.
We all know that this means fantastic skiing and riding, long nights by the fireplace and way too much hot cocoa! We also know that this is an important time to remember our neighbors and friends who live here year `round.
These are the people you see in the community, helping you out at the local stores, restaurants and in other areas in the Village and on Okemo Mountain. The people often behind the scenes working hard to be sure you enjoy your time with us in Vermont.
Starting in November each year we begin what is known as our winter event season. These events raise money for various causes in the Okemo Valley.
Giving Back to the Ludlow Community
Vermont Properties and Development continues to be a leader for fundraising events for the Ludlow community. We believe it is important to support our friends and neighbors in any way possible. These events provide us the opportunity to give back to the community that has always generously supported us and you as our guests.
We kick off this year's event season with our annual Coat Drive from November 7th to 23rd. Vermont Properties is a drop off area for clean winter outerwear. We collect items for the entire week then deliver it to Black River Good Neighbors to help folks stay warm.
Flannel with Flair takes place in on January 24th 2015. This has been a well-attended event with a dinner and live auction; a major fund raising event for several years.
Comedy Night will keep us laughing on February 21st 2015. Each year we host some of the best comedy acts in the area. The Logger has been a returning favorite as has Bob Marley. This is a great opportunity for folks to come out, share some real laughs and support various causes.
Come join us in supporting our local community. You can stay up to date on these events and others at http://www.vtprop.com/area-info/upcoming-events/.
We hope to see you there!
