Killington Active Seniors thanks community for support

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Killington Active Seniors, I would like to thank the many people who have reached out to offer help and support to us in these unusual times.

I would particularly like to acknowledge the Killington Locals Group on Facebook who contacted me early on. I remember thinking that we should be helping them as many have young children and are trying to work and hold their families together.

A big thank you also goes out to the Lookout who prepared hot takeout dinners for our entire group. Not only did we all have a great dinner that night but because of the social distancing in place we had a chance to at least wave to each other as we drove by in our cars.

Our town employees, Sherburne Library and Search and Rescue Squad have also stayed in touch and we thank you.

As I speak to all of the seniors, there is one thing we all agree with: We are so happy that we live in Killington. Again, I sincerely thank all of you for keeping us in your hearts  and watching out for us. It is very comforting in these challenging times. Sincerely,

Gerrie Russell,
