Our inaugral season ended with a lot of smiling faces and a really fun time at both the Webster (Sept 26th) and Glen Echo (October 3rd) Spooky Ski and Dock-O-Treat events.

LOF, which is based in Sandy Hook, Connecticut and was founded in 1992, provides recreational and competitive water (and snow) skiing opportunities for children and adults with disabilities.
