Car show organizers support Brattleboro skatepark

BASIC (Brattleboro Area Skatepark Is Coming) sends a sincere thank you to members of the VTStance group for their generous contribution toward Brattleboro's skateboard project.

VTStance members worked extremely hard to organize and run the 2017 Down 'n Out III Car Show with the needs of their community at heart. The event took place at the Brattleboro Union High School and drew car enthusiasts from around New England. On display were cars from the 1950s to high-performance models just released. It was a fun event enjoyed by all who came.

In addition to VTStance, we would like to thank the sponsors of our raffle who were responsible for many excited winners that day.

For those wishing to donate to the skatepark project, checks may be sent to the Brattleboro Recreation and Parks Dept./BASIC, P.O. Box 513, Brattleboro, VT 05302 or donate through our website. Thank you again to all for the continued support.
