Happy 2019 NENSA Community!
It has been an exciting time here in New England for cross country ski racing this past week with the Craftsbury Outdoor Center playing host to the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Cross Country Ski US Nationals. A variety of National Champions were crowned, and the racing, volunteers and venue were in top form! See box below for links to all the days recaps and photos.
I want to personally thank all the donors who participated in our year end matching gift campaign ~ the "Sprint to the Finish" of 2018! NENSA received $10,560 in donations, that were then matched by our wonderful matching donor, for a total of $21,120 to NENSA in this year end fund drive! THANK YOU!!
