Walk helps raise Academy funds

LUDLOW - Following its Walk for Local History in Ludlow last fall, Black River Academy Museum (BRAM) has scheduled its second annual walk for Saturday, April 30. Last year, more than 70 walkers participated in BRAM's walk through Ludlow.

This year, walk coordinator Sharon Combes-Farr has invited potential walkers to celebrate the arrival of spring during the three-mile long walk through the village.

Combes-Farr said that refreshment stations will be available along the course and at its conclusion at the Black River High School.

The walk's course starts and finishes at the Black River High School on Main Street in Ludlow. It passes the Black River Academy Museum on High Street, along Dug Road out of town, turning South on route 103 and back through Main Street.

Check-in is at the Black River High School at 10 a.m. The walk begins at 10:30 a.m. Registration fee includes a T-shirt, entertainment, beverages, and snacks. Adults $20. Students and seniors (65 plus) $10.

The first 100 walk registrants will receive t-shirts of the event.

Mail entries and checks may be sent to BRAM, P.O. Box 73, Ludlow 05149.

All money raised will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Richard Nye as part of his matching challenge grant aimed at completing all fund-raising for an elevator by June 30.

Any questions or concerns may be directed to the museum at 802-228-5050 or e-mail: director@bramvt.org.
