Delbert Reed, a member of the Ski Patrol at Q Burke Mountain, is guest speaker of St. Johnsbury Rotary
RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE Q BURKE SKI PATROL -- Delbert Reed, a member of the Q Burke Mountain Ski Patrol, provided St. Johnsbury Rotarians with some insight into what his job entails during the club's weekly meeting Feb. 23. Reed is also an EMT with Lyndon Rescue and is a martial arts instructor in Taekwondo. He has been with the mountain's ski patrol since the 1990-91 ski season. The responsibilities of the ski patrol are to take care of the mountain: checking all trails early in the morning before the lifts open, marking trails, and closing trails if need be; sweeping the trails after the lifts are closed; checking what trails are groomed, providing information for the ski report; covering special events; and assisting skiers. There are approximately 30 ski patrol members, eight full-time. Training for new ski patrol members takes place in November before the mountain opens. To become a member, the ski patrol is looking for energetic individuals, who can ski. Having some medical training is also a plus. Reed discussed some of the situations they have had to deal with, including the recent death of a skier a few weeks ago.

Littleton Rotary
At Littleton Rotary's Feb. 11 meeting, club members welcomed an update of activities at Camp Mayhew from the organization's Executive Director, Jim Nute. Littleton's support of Mayhew was inspired and led for many decades by Rotarian and Mayhew Trustee Emeritus, Paul McGoldrick. The camp reaches out to 10- and 11-year old New Hampshire boys from low income, single parent families and the program begins with a 25-day summer island challenge on Newfound Lake. The Mayhew experience continues with a unique community outreach feature. Throughout the year, professional staff makes follow-up home and school visits, serving as role models and supporting each boy's effort to make a new start for himself. After the first year, each boy has the chance to return to camp and once again receive visits from his Mayhew community outreach worker during the school year. Nute reflected that during the course of his 20 year association with the camp, the boys have consistently taught him more than he taught them. Rotarian Carl Hilgenberg, left, relates to Nute his experience of sharing lunch with the campers and seeing the self-confidence the program develops.
