Stowe Mountain Resort employees volunteered at the Lamoille Family Center in Morrisville as part of Vail Epic Promise Day.
Their relationship began last year when the family center received a grant through the EpicPromise community partnership to give scholarships to kids for summer camp.
Led by Stephen Burnett, the Stowe group showed up with chains saws, rakes and shovels.
Lamoille Family Center’s Story Stroll, a path for families to walk from page to page of the book, was located on a separate piece of property on Bridge Street in Morrisville. The remote path made it difficult to monitor and maintain. Now, the Stroll is right on the Lamoille Family Center’s property at 480 Cadys Falls Road.
“The new location will make it easy for upkeep and will help us have a better idea of who is using it,” said Debbie Trombly, who oversees the Story Stroll and changes the stories seasonally. “It will also allow us to use it with the families that we serve when they are visiting.”
Volunteers replaced a footbridge and built a new one to create a looped path that leaves from the front of the Family Center’s property and takes readers behind the building, through the woods along the water, and ends back at the parking lot.
