Notes from the Board We are making plans for our annual meeting of the ASPNC membership on March 12th. This will be a combination annual meeting and member / volunteer / participant appreciation gathering. Details will follow soon. We are in full swing preparing for the Pirates of the High Skis! This is our big annual winter fundraiser, please come out and support this great event. The board will be at its annual retreat on Saturday, March 26th at the AMC’s Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch. This is where we look at both short and long term goals. If anyone has any thoughts on things we might consider in our short and long term planning please let Sandy know. Your input is welcome and appreciated. Fundraising is on track with last year but this is always a focus for our group as without it we do not operate.

Happy New Year from ASPNC!

We hope that your 2016 is off to a great start! Here at ASPNC we’ve been busy with volunteer training – sometimes working through less than cooperative weather! – and starting our first programs of the season. Saturday we were thrilled to have Spaulding Adaptive Ski Club join us on the mountain to kick off our winter programs!

New Year Outlook

Thanks to a generous donation we are able to purchase all of our much needed alpine equipment for the year! Our wish list included:

A huge “Thank You!” to our anonymous donor for helping to acquire these items and start the year off right!
