Hello Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing people of Vermont!! I am David Krueger, president of Vermont Association of the Deaf (VtAD) and I am here at a tailgate party in Castleton University. The purpose of this video is to share information with you about the upcoming VtAD Town Hall meeting and Tailgate Party in Castleton, Vermont on Saturday October 14. You might be wondering why VtAD is doing an event on Saturday, October 14. It is because it is the date of the annual Gallaudet University vs Castleton University football game. VtAD is doing a Town Hall at the same time to see if you want any information or need any support / resources from VtAD or various deaf community organizations in the state.
So, VtAD will have two tents in the tailgate area. VtAD will provide food — free! Admission to the tailgate area is free, too. If you want to enter the football stadium to watch the game, you will need to buy a ticket at the entrance to the stadium. You can also choose not to buy a ticket and stand outside of the stadium fence on the lawn and watch the game from there.
As for parking, when you come to Castleton University, please park your car in the lot across the street from the tailgate area. You can’t see the parking lot here in the video — it is behind the tall trees that are in the background. Park your car there and walk over to the VtAD tents. We will have the tents open at 9am. The football game starts at 12 noon. We welcome anyone — Deaf, DeafBlind, Hard of Hearing, Coda, and hearing people who sign!
Alright!!! It will be an exciting day and we look forward to seeing you here — 9am onwards at Castleton University on Saturday October 14!!
