Burke Mountain Hotel & Conference is conveniently located only 15 minutes from Lyndon State College and is the site of the Ian Muller Rail Jam. FREE skiing will be offered for all Veterans and their Family on Sunday, March 12.
Ian Muller grew up in Danville, Vermont and attended Lyndon State College prior to enlisting in the Marine Corps. Ian was an avid bodybuilder, athlete, and ski instructor at Burke Mountain. On March 11, 2011, Corporal Ian Muller was killed during combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan where he had often volunteered to take the more dangerous lead positions during combat patrols because in his words, many of his colleagues had wives and children and he did not.
Proceeds from the rail jam will be used to provide an annual $1,000 scholarship to an LSC student veteran. Stay tuned for complete details and how to register.
