Rain was expected today but our guests woke to another beautiful sunny day in our Vermont bed and breakfast in North Bennington Village. The annual MS Walk is to be held this Saturday May 1 in Bennington, Vermont. It is an event that I have participated in for many years to help raise funds for MS… and is particularly dear to my heart since my best friend Pattie was diagnosed with MS several years ago.
This Saturday however, Steve & I are helping our daughter, Stacy move from Boston to the “burbs” and I will not be in town for the Bennington walk. Don’t worry our little bed and breakfast in North Bennington Vermont will still be open and will be in the capable hands of our friend and inn sitter, Lisa.
Since it is such a lovely day I will do my own “MS WALK” today – the five mile loop from our bed and breakfast, up past Kevin’s, north to Matteson Road with those FABULOUS views of the Vermont Green Mountains, across Horton with still more breathtaking Vermont views, down Twitchell Hill (more views) and across to Houghton along the dirt road to the inn. What a great Vermont hike for a wonderful cause! I love Vermont!
If you would like to join my family and friends in support of my efforts to raise funds to fight MS, please follow this link - MS WALK VERMONT – to donate to my page. No donation is too small. The Vermont MS Society, Pattie & I appreciate your support.
