To the Editor:

The Deerfield Valley Health Care Volunteers would like to let everyone know that we have canceled our Snowshoe for Knowledge fundraising event for this year. It had been scheduled for February 17. This annual event raises money for our scholarship fund, which allows us to assist those in the health care field with their education.

As a nonprofit, we depend on many for help and in the past, the folks at the Hermitage have kindly been there for us. We have held the indoor portion of our event in a section of their dining room and much of our success has been due to their generosity. However, this year as they complete their construction and renovations, their space will not be available to us and we do not have the available personnel to move to a different location at this time.

We will be back next year and look forward to seeing you then. In the meantime, we are still accepting donations to our scholarship fund. Checks made out to DVHCV should be mailed to us at PO Box 275, Wilmington, VT 05363. We are a 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax deductible.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in the past. We hope to see you and your friends and family at Snowshoe for Knowledge, 2014.

Kathy Larsen

On behalf of the Deerfield Valley Health Care Volunteers
