Let’s not forget our good friends at Central Vermont Motorcycles who received the Dealer of the Year Award. Way to go, guys! You earned it.

Charlie Robbins, Treasurer Like us on Facebook Mount Holly Snow Flyers On Aug. 19, the Mount Holly Snow Flyers hosted a charity golf tournament at Green Mountain National Golf Course. The tournament was a precursor to the 49th VAST Annual Meeting that was held on Aug. 20 at the Killington Grand Hotel. We have to say a “Big Thank You” to the 80 players who participated in the tournament, along with the 70+ sponsors and donors, plus the volunteers who made it all possible. With their support we were able to raise close to $7,500, which was equally split between Make-A- Wish and the Vermont Achievement Center. With the golf tournament behind us – we are now looking forward to cooler weather and all the activities that fall brings.
