Let’s Go! York County Celebrates Site Accomplishments in the 2012-13 Year

Authored by Van Beckman, Let’s Go! York County

Collage of event photosLet’s Go! York County recently held a gathering to celebrate the accomplishments of Let’s Go! sites in that region during the 2013-13 year – our first such event. This special dinner brought together many of our site “champions” from the past year to share each other’s stories, get to know one another, and of course to enjoy a delicious, healthy meal!

At the end of the event, which we held at Duffy’s Tavern in Kennebunk November 7, Let’s Go! founder and director Dr. Tory Rogers presented the site champions each with special certificate recognizing them for their hard work in the previous year.

“We are immensely proud of the work York County Let’s Go! sites have done, and what a fantastic opportunity to have so many accomplished folks from our area gather together to celebrate that work,” said Tory after the event. “It’s an exciting chance for them to meet and share their great stories with each other and with us, as well as to receive the recognition they so well deserve.”

All 20 sites with representation at the event are also current Let’s Go! sites for the 2013-14 year, and most of them were being recognized at the Bronze, Silver, or Gold level for their work in 2012-13.
