Letter to the editor: Rubright family thankful for charitable effort

Dear Addison County Community,

Three years ago, we lost Deane Rubright, a beloved father, son, brother, uncle, and friend in a tragic accident. Deane was one of those people who put a smile on anyone’s face. With a bubbly and bright personality, he certainly made his mark on the Addison County Community.

The Rubright family would like to thank Rick Buck, the Mister Ups team members, the Ralph Myhre Golf Course staff, and the over 100 community members who participated in the 2021 Mister Ups Memorial Golf Tournament.

This year, a portion of the proceeds were donated in Deane’s honor to the Vermont VA Hospital for Recreational Therapy. A big thank you to Kyle Kelton who generously donated back his winnings from the 50/50 raffle.

The quintessential fall day was made even better when those who played in the tournament were invited to the deck of Mister Ups for food and drink. It is an honor to be a part of such a supportive and caring community. Deane would have been the first to raise his glass to those who came out in support.

Thank you,

The Rubright Family

Salisbury
