Our last meeting and election of officers will be held on March 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Fairlee Congregational Church. Jillian Hatch, Club News Correspondent uppervalleysnowpackers.com Like us on Facebook ORLEANS COUNTY Country Riders What a season! It started off slow, got perfect and then it was gone. That did not stop us from coming together as a group to have some winter fun. On Jan. 21, the club had a Poker Run. Even though riding was not the best, a great time was had by all. Local businesses really pitched in to help. A donation from the proceeds was given to our local food shelf. We are now planning our Spring Fling dance for April 22. Last year was a huge success. Details to follow. Kathleen DiCarlo, Activity Director Like us on Facebook Lorna Johnson gives Erving Laware his card at The Jay Village Inn during the County Riders’Poker Run. Drift Dusters Snowmobile Club I will begin this club news with a brief summary of our trail conditions this year. They have been absolutely stellar until the green grass showed up. To those who have taken advantage of our amazing trails due to the countless volunteer hours on our trail system, congrats! “Carpe Diem” should be the new quote of our members. Seize the day and take advantage while you can. I personally am sitting at roughly 2,300 miles on VAST trails this year and look to continue piling on miles and smiles when the snow returns. Take the good with the bad and make the best of it! The Drift Dusters celebrated our 18th Annual Winter Bash on Feb. 18. Congratulations to Pam Newell and Don Green on winning the 2017 Ski-Doo 600! Thank you to all who attended and we appreciate your continued support. Director Tim Jenness was also recognized that night for his nine years of service to the club. Thank you for all your hard work during your tenure! On May 3, 2016, our club lost a director due to a tragic accident. Our “Canada Trail” 105D has been recently dedicated to the memory of Director Dave Berube and Dana Parenteau. The Canada Trail was Dave’s “baby” and it has been an honor to be able to dedicate that trail to him and Dana. An official dedication ceremony will take place in the future. I will close with sending a “thank you” to Vermont State Police and the Vermont State Game Wardens. They have made their presence often and assisted with curbing fast operators in residential areas once they were made aware of these safety issues. Remember to respect our landowners so we can continue to enjoy their land year after year. I hope that when you read this, you have accumulated many more miles to make the 2016/17 season an excellent year!

Pam Newell and Don Green are the proud owners of a new Ski-Doo won at the Drift Dusters’Winter Bash.
