In the spirit of Thanksgiving, on Monday, November 20, Komen New England, represented by Linda Maness, development coordinator of special events in Vermont, presented Bill Cairns, president of Bromley Mountain, with a plaque of appreciation noting Bromley’s sponsorship of the 2017 Komen New England Race for the Cure in Vermont. Bromley Mountain is a 23-year sponsor of the local 5K race, first supporting the Vermont affiliate beginning in 1994. In subsequent years, Bromley continued its support of the Vermont-New Hampshire affiliate, and now it supports the New England affiliate of Susan G. Komen, serving Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

    For at least 23 years Women’s Appreciate Day for Susan B Komen has been celebrated on the first Friday in February. The management at Bromley has decided to change it to Saturday starting 2019. Most women celebrating this day are skiers and work at mountains and ski shops which are busiest on the weekends. Bus loads of women arrive creating a huge crowd, filling most tables on that Friday. It’s unimaginable to think what a Saturday crowd would create. Pandemonium! To say nothing of the fact that the current attendees would not, under most circumstances, not come back at all. This, to me is a smack in the face to all women, as it would crowd out the majority who have come to Bromley for years. Is it greed that’s causing this change to be made? Or just male dominance? Perhaps Bill Cairns and the rest of the executive staff should re-evaluate this decision.
