The Top of Vermont, an Adventure in Supporting Mentoring

June 8, 2011 News

What better way to enjoy a summer afternoon than to hike up to the top of Vermont’s tallest mountain, breathe in the cool fresh mountain air, and just meditate on the beauty of the Green Mountains, rolling on for miles and miles to the horizon?  And how amazing would it be to be able to do that (for yourself), while you raise money to support mentoring in our community?  It may sound too good to be true, but you have exactly that opportunity. Mount Mansfield awaits you.
