Bretton Woods Adaptive and the Omni Mount Washington Resort will host Veterans Appreciation Days Saturday, Feb. 5-6.
The Veterans Center in White River Junction, Vt., will be bringing its Mobile Vet Center to the Bretton Woods ski area 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
Disabled veterans from the North Country of New Hampshire and Vermont will receive free adaptive ski and winter sports lessons and use of adaptive equipment through the Bretton Woods Adaptive Program.
Families of the disabled veterans also will receive lessons, free skiing, and equipment rental.
Lunch will be provided for disabled veterans receiving lessons and their families.
Bretton Woods Adaptive instructors are skilled in teaching adaptive sports regardless of abilities or injuries. Some of the instructors are Vietnam Veterans who have many years of working with others who like themselves were injured while serving their country. They are proud to return the favor that the veterans of World War II gave them when they returned home.
The mobile Vet Center is one of a fleet of vans that travels throughout N.H. and Vt. to reach underserved veterans. Services through the mobile unit are open to all North Country veterans.
The 39-foot motor coach carries Vet Center counselors and outreach workers to provide non-medical readjustment counseling to address the social and economic dimensions of post-war issues. This also includes counseling for traumatic, military-related experiences and family counseling. The Vet Center Van provides free service to all veterans, and the Mobile Van is also open to the public for tours of the van.
Advanced reservations are required for adaptive lessons, family member passes, and rentals. Space is limited for lessons so reservations must be made no later than Jan. 31. Please e-mail your requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603- 278-3398.
