After 6 months of dedicated work, we pulled it off! Central Vermont Road Pitch was a smashing success, especially for it being our first year.
And we could not have done it without YOU!
The Central Vermont Road Pitch Steering Committee is sincerely grateful to everyone who contributed to this amazing event.
First, congratulations to our five “pitchers” (Susan Snider, Liz Holtz, Lori Barg, Andrew Glover, and Sonya Spaulding) for delivering top notch presentations. The room was a buzz with excitement over the ideas presented.
Everyone worked so hard, but a few special thank you(s) go out to:
