South Burlington H-TeamSouth Burlington Veterans Memorial Documentary

Friday evening, the H-Team and Rusty Dewees welcomed about 50 local community members to the Majestic 10 Theater for a special public preview of the SB Remembers Documentary. The documentary highlights the planning and construction of the new South Burlington Veterans Memorial to be erected at Dorset Park. The documentary was locally promoted on Sunday through a Super Bowl commercial, seen below.

The event was a resounding success, with Rusty Dewees and the H-Team’s own Toby Tyler chipping in to help raise $1,000 in a silent auction.  The weekend also saw the official launch of the newly developed SBRemembers.org, where visitors can learn about the memorial and see artist’s renderings of the proposed final product.  Since its launch on Sunday, the site has already generated $500 in donations to the memorial project.

The H-Team Antifreezers take to the lake for a good cause

Penguin PlungeThe Veterans memorial wasn’t the only worthy cause to have received special attention from the H-Team this past weekend.  A group of courageous H-Team members braved the frigid waters of Lake Champlain on Saturday morning as part of the annual Penguin Plunge, helping to raise money for the Special Olympics Vermont.  The Antifreezers were among the first to race into (and out of) the lake, donating over $1,800 to the charity, which raised over $300,000 for the Special Olympics of Vermont.
