We have been a sponsor of Special Olympics Connecticut Winter Games since 1989.
Our team of volunteers – employees and retirees – set up snowmaking pipes at our Windsor Operations Center and work around the clock running the machines to make sure there's enough snow so hundreds of athletes can compete in cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
It's the only group of volunteers in the world that makes snow exclusively for a Special Olympics event.
The team spends nearly five months planning the competition. Their work has been recognized several times by the Special Olympics community and multiple members of the volunteer planning team have received the Unsung Hero award from Special Olympics Connecticut.
