More than 175 people enjoyed a dinner of spaghetti with meatballs, tomato sauce, garlic bread and salad and the 2020 Keewaydin trip fund banked over $1,400 on April 10. That represents the cost of sending about five students to the environmental education camp on Lake Dunmore in Salisbury.

The camp was founded in 1973 and Chester-Andover has been sending students there since its first year.

Frank Kelley risks ‘dishpan hands’ to send kids to camp.

Volunteers and staff cooked the meal while students took orders and served the hungry diners. In addition, Lisai’s, Black River Produce, Crow’s Bakery, Drew’s All Natural and the Springfield Coop pitched in with help for the event.

The school will be continuing its fundraising efforts and donations to help cover the cost of sending CAES fifth and sixth graders to Keewaydin next spring can be sent to CAES, 72 Main St., Chester, VT 01543.

    Thanks to our vast community for supporting this event. Keewaydin 2020 will create lasting memories just as Keewaydin 1973 did!

    If there are any Keewaydin Alumni that would like to share their stories, the students would love to hear them!

    Thanks again!
