Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2nd Annual Track and Treat Fun Run and 5K on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018. It was a great morning, and the rain held off until the last runner rounded the corner to the finish line! Folks warmed up with hot apple cider and delicious baked goods, and many kids tested their agility on Laura Cary’s fun obstacle course, while still others painted pumpkins with VAE teaching artist Gabi Rynes.

A huge THANK YOU to Catie Kwak and Laura Cary for organizing another Track and Treat, and to all the Village School staff members and volunteers who helped contribute to this event. Please extend a warm thank you to all of the wonderful local businesses, such as sponsors Bank of Bennington and The Richards Group, that helped make this event possible. They are listed below.
