Snow Day *Perk* Attention: Parents, students, Mayor Ness and everyone else. Thom Storm is awesome!

I propose the City of Duluth creates a Thom Storm Day!

This man has done so much for the youth of our city through his works at Chester Park/Chester Bowl over the years and he continues to do so.

He just sent out an email this afternoon regarding the winter storm. How is this for fore-thinking and helping parents out if the kids are out of school, and who need to go to work for a few hours tomorrow, if they can get there:

If schools are closed tomorrow due to snow, I intend to open the chairlift from 11-4:30, so parents can go to work, & kids can have something fun to do.  I already have early morning grooming of the hill, and snowplowing of the road arranged.  The final piece to the puzzle would be to get some parents to operate the concession stand.  Volunteers would be needed from 10-45am to 2pm and 1:45-4:45pm.  If you would be available to help out, please email me back by 5pm today if possible.  This would only take place if schools are closed.  If schools remain open, the lift will be open it’s regular hours of 4:30-8:30, and volunteers for the concession are already signed up for those shifts.

Thanks for your consideration.
