To the editor:

On behalf of the Grace Cottage Hospital Rehabilitation Department, I would like to thank the staff, community members, and establishments who helped make this year’s 14th annual Physical Therapy Month Poker Walk such a big success. Over 100 walkers and runners completed the two-mile course on October 10, despite cold, rainy weather.

Thanks to the following donors for generous door prize contributions: Grace Cottage Hospital, Grace Cottage Community Wellness Center, Grace Cottage Foundation, Messenger Valley Pharmacy, Patty Winter, Siobhan Young, Flo Burt, Jim Heal, Archer Mayor, Wayne’s Auto and Jeep, Newfane Greenhouse, and Mary Meyer.

A big thanks also to Snow Goose Inn, of West Dover, for contributing a one-night stay as our grand prize for the community member with the best poker hand. Thanks also to the Last Chair Restaurant, West Dover, for the employee grand prize, dinner for two.

We were well hydrated and fueled with water and granola bars donated by C&S Wholesale Grocers, also our event lead sponsor, thanks to a generous financial donation. Thanks so much.

Thank you, Windham County Sheriff’s Department, and Community Emergency Response Team, for an excellent job with traffic control. A big thanks to the Grace Cottage “Grace Greeters,” who cheerfully handed out playing cards despite the weather.

And thank you, Tammy Claussen and Tom Russell, for bringing your students out. Leland & Grey is a huge part of the event.

Great job, everyone. See you next year.
