Long Trail hosts skating event
MANCHESTER ó The Long Trail School in Dorset is hosting a low-cost skating event from 1:15 to 3:15 p.m. on Sunday at Riley Rink in Manchester.
In addition to the ice skating, there will be an opportunity to make bowls for Long Trailís Empty Bowls 2013 in the conference space adjacent to the warm-up room. The Empty Bowl program, which has attracted many participants in Vermont and across the country, helps to raise awareness about hunger in the local community. It also raises funds and contributions toward local food banks.
For the Empty Bowls Project at Long Trail, the public is invited to make and decorate bowls, free of charge, which will then be fired and sold with donated soup, bread and dessert at the Empty Bowl Dinner on April 6. All proceeds will go to local food charities.
During the event, skating is $1 for students and $3 for adults. Skate rentals are not included in this pricing.
Families are welcome to skate, make bowls or participate in both. For questions about this event, call Courtney Callo at 867-5717, ext. 141 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.MORE IN Southern Vermont
