October in Review
all of this made possible by fundraisers like the Turkey Trot
In October we stayed fit with Bari, bowled at Maple Lanes, walked around town, we swam at Upper Valley Aquatic Center, we did yoga every Tuesday and Thursday with our fab yoga teachers, we cycled the rail trail with Vermont Adaptive, played games with Carl Hurd and we hiked up to the Pogue.

We had many forms of art in October including films at Pentangle, art with Caitlin, we made pottery at Artistree, attended a Global Campus Program at Tip Top Pottery, we had Art and crafts with Lolly and Bonnie, a trip to the Lebanon Opera House to see "The Money Tree", a trip to the HOP to see "Tales from the Latino World" , we had singing classes with Kerry and Jack Snyder and music movement with Mark.

We continued to learn with lot's of educational programs including reading with Diane and Bettyanne and Book Club with Anne Swanson. Holly taught a photography class. We had science class with Corinna, we made a new greeting cards as a collaborative project with Woodstock Elementary School. We had nutrition classes with Vince, we visited Billings Farm for Historic Farm programs. We also had a visit to the Dana House Historical House.

Just for fun we took a fall foliage ride through the Brandon Gap and stopped in the town of Brandon for lunch. We also went to visit our friend and yoga teacher Jamie Fields at her home Ogden Mills which is an old Cider Mill. Thatcher, Jamie's husband gave us a great tour and taught us all about how a cider mill works.

 Zack's Place 2017Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot Run/Walk November 23, 2017
The Zack's Place Turkey Trot, a 5K run and walk held on Thanksgiving Day, was first established in 2007, and has become a dependable annual fundraiser ever since. In 2007, almost 200 people participated. In 2016, over 1,500 people participated and raised $78,000. All of the proceeds of the race are dedicated to our operational costs.
As participants line up and register for the race they are entertained by a band on a flatbed truck. Hot coffee, tea and hot chocolate are offered. The race begins in front of the Woodstock Elementary School at 10:00 AM, with the more skilled runners in front and the rest following. The run meanders through the historic Village of Woodstock, then on towards Billings Farm, around Mountain Avenue, and back around The Town Green, ending at the starting line. An award ceremony, also with refreshments and a band, follows the race where medals are presented.
Families run together as college kids and relatives gather for the Thanksgiving celebration. Grandparents and young children in carriages participate as walkers, dogs join in as well. It has become a tradition for many in the Woodstock area; however we also have "satellite participants" who cannot be in Woodstock but who run with family wherever they are: Hawaii, Italy, New York City, etc. This is indeed a day of thanks where individuals help support our enrichment center and give thanks for their own gifts at the same time.
Runner entry fee is $30.00 if paid by check or $32.50 to pay online.
Maplewood Farm donates lots of apples. Hypertherm employees come and pick apples and Zack's Place families and other volunteers man  our booth. All made for a successful and fun fundraiser!
