Brownsville Skate Parties Are Back #WestWindsorVT #VT

Even with temperatures in the teens, Brownsville's Friday Night Skate Party kicked off with a bang. The party held at a community built ice rink behind Albert Bridge Elementary School in Brownsville saw a huge crowd of  skaters, close to 50 adults and children of all ages and skating ability. For the third year, the community has come together to maintain the rink for community members to use during the winter.

Continuing in last year's tradition, Mark Aldrich brings music and hot dogs. Jeremy Underhill builds the bonfire. Catherine Underhill makes homemade hot chocolate, coffee for the adults, cookies and doughnut holes-a very popular request according to Catherine-and on the menu for Friday Jan. 16. With the long weekend coming up even more skaters are anticipated.
The Skate Party is completely funded by community donations, which are always welcome, to help offset the associated costs of maintaining the rink and purchasing some of the party fixings. Donations can be dropped off at the Town Hall.
