Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund Grant
New Hampshire Charitable Foundation
The Secret Sock Society is honored and grateful to be recipients of a 2018 grant from the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Grant funding provided bus transportation for students participating in the Snowsports Field Trip Program. Since 2015 the Snowsports Field Trip Program has hosted 474 5th grade students for a day of skiing at Cannon Mountain. Student survey data documents that approximately 45% of local 5th grade participants try a snowsport for the first time on the field trip. Bus transportation, lift tickets, rental equipment and a snowsports lesson at Cannon Mountain are provided as part of the field trips. Students from public schools in Whitefield, Littleton, Lancaster and Groveton participated in the 2019 Snowsports Field Trip Program.
2019 is the 4th season of the Snowsports Field Trip Program at Cannon Mountain. Participants last March had a wonderful time on the snow with their fifth grade classmates. Most exciting is the fact that over 40% of student participants were trying a snowsport for the first time.
