Lake St. Catherine State Park
3034 VT Rte. 30 - South
Check out free admission passes from Poultney public library, or walking into the park equates to no fee. We parked on Endless Brook Rd., on the left side-way left from traffic. Think about people who use Endless Brook Rd. and Rt. 30. The world doesn't stop for you and mentees because you're all apart of a nonprofit organization!(one day my support was not being supportive in crossing the road!yikes) If you don't feel comfortable walking with children in an organized fashion then don't park and walk from Endless Brook Rd. Figure something out, but try to save DREAM the cash!!

Chuck Sharpe from the United Way had only great things to say about Michael J. Valentine at PegTV, and is hopeful that they will be able to share facilities with DREAMers in the future!
