A club information table offered color brochures, membership information and commemorative gifts for guests. The VAST table outlined Vermont snowmobiling, marketing opportunities and trail initiatives. A backdrop was created using colorful banners and 8-foot storyboards highlighting club milestones. Polar Bears merchandise, free prize drawings, refreshments and a TMA raffle added to the fun. The original meeting minutes ledger was used as a lasting sign-in book. Historic memorabilia sparked memories amongst guests, landowners and founding members generating storytelling throughout the day. Laughter and the sound of clicking cameras filled the air. Club President Gregg Williams presented Beth Godin, VAST News VAST media manager, with a framed copy of the club’s first meeting minutes from Oct. 16, 1966. The event concluded at 4 p.m. as if announced by the raindrops that fell. For the Lunenburg Polar Bears, just as the day started with a smile and a handshake so too it ended… same as it did a half century ago. Club President Gregg Williams and founding member Amos Colby hold the club’s 50th Anniversary plaque that will be mounted in the Lunenburg Town Hall. A giant storyboard highlights 50 years of club achievements. Awards, memorabilia, old maps and a video of vintage club footage, including a1971 ride on the Pipeline trail were on display. Watch it on the club’s new YouTube channel debuting this fall. Founding member Sandra Gonyer takes a moment to view the deceased life member plaque.
