“I’ve done a lot of volunteering over the years, addressing the needs of the disabled and disadvantaged,” Day said. Her community commitments are broad-based, as Day currently serves on the Board of Special Olympics Vermont, and the, Slopeside Home Owners Association of Stratton VT, and is a member of the Shelburne Natural Resources and Conservation Committee.
