Winter sports enthusiasts rejoice at Northampton Lions Club ski and skate sale

Hampshire County

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The Northampton Lions Club picked a perfect day for their 60th annual ski and skate sale at Smith Vocational & Agricultural High School.

There were plenty of customers Saturday in the mood for a season of winter sports. Dylan Marsh of Easthampton has visions of hitting the ski slopes.

“I have to buy some skis, I’ve got a snowboard hat on, I ski some,” he told 22News.

In addition to the skis and the skates, the Northampton Lions Club also supplies fans of the winter outdoors with snowboards as well as snowshoes.

“It’s one of our biggest fundraisers,” said Patrick Diggins, treasurer of the club. “This year we worked with the Northampton Board of Health to devise a plan where we could still have it during COVID times.”

And with everyone following the rules of social distancing, winter sports enthusiasts would outfit themselves safely for the winter sports season ahead. And help the Northampton Lions Club continue its community service through a successful fundraiser.
