The ULLR Foundation presented a $3600 check to Padraig's Place Adaptive Winter Sports at Buck Hill for an adaptive extra-large sit ski on Saturday February 25.  Jerry Weiskopf, Joan Roe, Carol Bush, Pam Anderson and Jan Cady represented Ullr and felt very grateful to Ullr Club members, who made this possible.  A plaque will be placed on the sit ski in appreciation to the Ullr Foundation, in memory of David Lyons and Manfred Deutsch.
Padraig's Place, a local non-profit organization and Buck Hill Ski and Snowboard School have come together to enrich the lives of special needs children with physical and cognitive disabilities.
Brian Foley, founder of Padraig's Place, expressed deep appreciation and gratitude to the Ullr Club.  Jason, one of the instructors, demonstrated the sit ski by giving Jan Cady (aka Mother Superior) a thrilling ride down the hill!  There are about eighty instructors and volunteers who are involved with the Buck Hill adaptive skiing on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings.
