Pete’s RV Donates Tables to Storm-Stricken Campground
August 2011’s tropical storm Irene left a path of devastating flooding and wind damage across Vermont. Abel Mountain Campground in Braintree was among the many businesses crippled by the storm.
With the owners and campers at Abel Mountain Campground rallying to rebuild for 2012, Pete’s RV based in South Burlington wanted to lend a helping hand in getting the campground back on its feet.
Recently, a group of Pete’s RV employee volunteers gathered after work one night and assembled 10 hardwood picnic tables for donation to the campground, according to a news release.
The solidly constructed tables will be a welcome sight to campers when Abel Mountain reopens in the spring.
