Flood Brook distributes over 40 food baskets for area families

Dear Editor,

Every year Flood Brook School distributes food baskets and turkeys to members of our community at holiday time. This year, we assembled 46 baskets and had 40 turkeys to give.

A big thank you to Lani Lovisa and the students at Burr & Burton Academy who contributed baskets and turkeys. Also, a big shout out to the local realtors who assembled and donated baskets and money for the purchase of turkeys. Thank you to Terry Merrow at Clark’s IGA for his annual help with the procurement of many turkeys. And last, but not least, thank you to the Flood Brook community who donated, assembled, and sorted the bulk of the baskets. A big shout out to Nurse Jessica Berg who coordinates this effort in addition to other holiday programs and to all of the parents, students, and teachers who contributed food items and money. Thank you to the following students who checked every basket to make sure it was complete: Ronnie Murphy, Lucca Rourke, Montana Smith, and Cole Bickford.

We would also like to thank the Stratton Foundation for donating 25 pairs of new boots, socks, and gifts and the Second Congregational Church in Londonderry who coordinate the donation of 22 gifts and clothes for our students during the holidays.

The Flood Brook School is a K-8, 300-capacity school located in the heart of ski country in southwestern Vermont. The Mountain Towns Regional Education District School Board consists of eight school board members from the towns of Landgrove, Londonderry, Peru, and Weston. At Flood Brook School, we challenge ourselves to be lifelong learners, to practice respect, and to value community.

Sincerely,

Ann Alford

Flood Brook School

Londonderry, Vt.
