Originally published in The Commons issue #402 (Wednesday, April 5, 2017).

On behalf of members of the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club, we thank the community for its support of our 21st annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

On March 18, teams from Vermont and New Hampshire assembled at Brattleboro Union High School and Brattleboro Area Middle School to help raise funds for the club’s ongoing scholarship program, which has awarded more than $210,000 in scholarship money.

A special thank you to all our corporate sponsors, which consistently support this fundraiser, and to our numerous volunteers.

We also recognize the BUHS athletic department and Athletic Director Chris Sawyer, the BUHS/BAMS custodial staff and administrations, and Rescue, Inc. for providing medical support.

Lastly, thanks to our Rotary members, who worked tirelessly to ensure another successful tournament.
