To the Editor:

The Collaborative would like to thank Grand Dynamics and MetLife for providing 10 students in our after school program with new bikes and helmets from Battenkill Sports. The donation was a result of a team building retreat for MetLife's employees that was hosted at the Equinox and facilitated by Grand Dynamics. Teams from MetLife built the bikes with the help of experts from Battenkill Sports, made personalized posters, and hosted a pizza and ice cream party for the youth. Grand Dynamics looks forward to hosting more of these types of events in the community in the future. The Collaborative is a substance abuse education prevention program located in Londonderry, Vermont.
