Retirement is defined as the action or fact of leaving one’s occupation and ceasing to work. Todd Earl retired from his position as Guidance Counselor from the Hudson Falls School District after 25 years of dedicated service to students. Retirement is a time to celebrate accomplishments and for some to slow down, but that hasn’t been the case for Todd. Todd arrives at Double H almost every morning with the same outlook, “put me where I am needed.” On any given day at Double H, you might find Todd organizing the medical supplies and National Ski Patrol schedule in his role as Director of the Ski Patrol for the winter program, serving as a summer session volunteer, helping to run our High Ropes Course on family weekends, or lending a passionate and skilled hand to our facilities team.
Todd began volunteering for Double H in 2006 as a member of the National Ski Patrol. After watching the difference it made to his wife Rosemarie, he followed her lead and became involved with the Adaptive Winter Sports Program. For the past four years, Todd has served as the Director of the Ski Patrol and began to seek out other opportunities to volunteer for Double H. Today there is no program, event or facilities project Todd is not willing to lend a helping hand.
We are incredibly thankful Todd retired and committed to a new passion to help the Double H children, families, volunteers and our staff in any way possible! While his support in every season and every program can sometimes be behind the scenes, his impact and generosity influence countless members of the HH community. For this reason, we are proud to honor him as the Double H Ranch 2014 recipient of the Ron & Kathy Phelps Volunteer of the Year award.
