As many of you know, VAST (Vermont Association of Snow Travelers) is a state-wide snowmobile club which encompasses all of the town-level clubs. Once a year, VAST gives awards to some of the exceptional volunteers. Bruce Ingerson could not make it to the VAST annual meeting earlier in September to receive his award, so we went to him. On Tuesday afternoon, September 27th, his local club, the Ludlow Side Hill Cronchers, hosted a lunch to honor Bruce for all he has done for us, and for neighboring clubs, for more than 20 years. We want to thank him for being an integral part of our club doing lots of hard work and for being an endless source of knowledge. The event was well attended with friends from multiple clubs. Many thanks to all who helped to make the afternoon a success: Matt Tetrault for coming down from VAST to present the award; the Ludlow Senior Center for letting us use their perfectly set up space; all who attended and celebrated Bruce with us; the great sandwiches and salads from Singleton's Store; the mega delicious cupcakes from Whitney and Parker Ave Confectionery; and the Vermont Journal for taking photos. It all pulled together in a special way for a special person.
