BENNINGTON, Vt. —The Southwestern Vermont Health Care Foundation Northshire Regional Advisory Board has welcomed Chris Ams.

Ams moved to Vermont from Fairfield, Conn, in June of 2000, after purchasing a mortgage company in the area. After 25 years in the mortgage industry, he took a position as the executive director of Riley Rink at Hunter Park, where he worked for the next two years.  He then purchased a property management business, which he ran for three years before joining his brother and nephew as an account executive at Finn and Stone Insurance in Manchester.  

He lives in Manchester with his wife Jane, who is a nurse at SVMC Northshire Campus. Together, they have three adult children who live locally and across the country.

The SVHC Foundation Northshire Regional Advisory Board consists of 12 members. Members are nominated by members of the group or by the health system. The SVHC Foundation's mission is to engage in development and fundraising activities exclusively for the support of the Southwestern Vermont Health Care Corporation.

RiseVT's Rise to the Challenge Combines Three Events

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Three events are being held May 17-19 to encourage all, especially kids, to kick off the warm weather with physical activity.

"Our area is so rich with fun and interesting opportunities to move," Bennington County RiseVT Program Coordinator Andrea Malinowski said. "This set of three events highlights some of those great resources and encourages families to increase their physical activity."

The first event, planned for 6 p.m. Friday, May 17, is a hike at the Mile-Around Woods. It starts from John G. McCullough Free Library in North Bennington. This free and family-friendly walk will take participants around the Park-McCullough House or the Mile-Around Woods.

Attendees to the hike will receive a flyer on which they can collect signatures at each of the events. Those who participate in all three become a RiseVT Certified Champion, win special RiseVT and Southwestern Vermont Health Care swag, and are entered to win a raffle of fun summer-inspired prizes.
