Bennington Disaster Action Team Raises Awareness

This past weekend was a busy one for members of the Bennington Disaster Action (DAT) team. Fortunately, it wasn't flooding or late night fires that kept them on the move. This weekend was an opportunity for civic pride and raising awareness of Red Cross activities in Southern Vermont.

DAT members participated in the Shaftsbury parade, marking the town's 250th anniversary; set up a table at festivities surrouding Bennington Battle Day; and also made an appearance at the Bennington Irish Music Festival.
