GILFORD — The Lakes Region Disabled Sports (LRDS) at Gunstock group recently partnered with the newly-formed Patriot Resilient Leader Institute (PRLI) of Gilford to offer two days of skiing to seven disabled veterans and their VA escorts.
The veterans, all referred by the Boston VA Center, are part of the New England Winter Sports Clinic for Disabled Veterans. The LRDS group organized the event and paid for the lunches when the Vets arrived plus adaptive ski lessons for the Vets while Gunstock chipped in with complimentary lifts and rentals.
Following skiing at Gunstock on the first day, the Vets enjoyed dinner donated by Patrick's Pub & Eatery. They then had overnight accommodations donated at a huge discount by the Fireside Inn & Suites. The Fireside management also provided free breakfast the next morning before the Vets left for another day on the slopes. Lunch was donated by Shaw's of Gilford after which the group headed home.
All costs for the disabled veterans' excursion were covered by in-kind donations or cash donations from a variety of local people and organizations contacted by either the LRDS group or the PRLI. The PRLI covered the minimal costs of the hotel while generous donations from Lakes Region Dental Care, the Knights of Columbus Council 428, individual members of the Gilford Rotary Club, as well as some other civic-minded individuals in the community, covered all the remaining incidental costs for this visit.
The disabled veterans were sincerely appreciative and expressed their thanks for the outstanding support and welcome they received from the numerous Lakes Region venues, businesses, clubs and individuals.
