Many thanks from Special Olympics
On behalf of the athletes of Addison County Special Olympics, we thank the Middlebury Lions Club for their generous donation which will help to provide opportunity for 65 athletes to demonstrate their abilities. Special Olympics Vermont offers year round sports training and competition opportunities in 13 Olympic-type sports. Through sports training and competition the athletes develop physical skills and healthy life habits, but most important have fun. Friendships made and the sportsmanship demonstrated, brings smiles to the athletes, the volunteers, the coaches, and the parents. As every Special Olympian knows; “Let Me Win, But if I Cannot Win, Let Me Be Brave in the Attempt.
Be sure to look at the volunteer opportunities available with Vermont Special Olympics. The "Opening Eyes program" of the Vermont Special Olympics is again looking for Lions volunteers. Check out their invitation here.
