The campus community is invited to consider joining members of the Student Veterans of America, D&E Chapter, on Friday, February 2 for the Gathering of Mountain Eagles at Canaan Valley Resort.
This event is in support of Wounded Warriors and their families. Members of the D&E community will assist with ski/snowboard assistance on the slopes and typically partner up one on one with a member of the Ski Patrol. We also interact with the veterans and their families in the lodge throughout the day.
Davis & Elkins College is able to take 20-24 participants on the Senator bus along with equipment.
We will depart campus at approximately 6:30 a.m. and stop for breakfast at a fast food restaurant in Elkins (to be paid for by the individual). Lunch will be provided in the lodge with the veterans, their families, members of the Ski Patrol and others assisting with the event. There is a brief ceremony in the lodge as well as a photo opportunity on top of the mountain. The group typically returns to campus by 5:30 p.m.
Please contact Mark Lanham, SVA adviser, at 304-637-1980, firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by The Stirrup Gallery if you have questions or are interested in attending this year’s event.
