Tibbits Pond has been greeting students, teachers, alumni and friends of Hoosac ever since the school was moved to the Tibbits family estate. On July 1st, a catastrophic storm, that brought major damage to all of the greater Hoosick area, caused the stream that feeds Tibbits Pond to surge and overtop the roadway leading onto campus.
This resulted in the complete destruction of the road and significant damage to the dam under it. The dam had to be breached and the pond drained. Currently, the road to campus remains impassable, a temporary road to the school has been made on the other side of campus. It has enabled us to continue to operate, but is not a solution to the major issue at hand, rebuilding the dam, replacing the road and restoring Tibbits Pond to its traditional state.
We are pursuing all avenues to help fund this restoration, but it can't be done without your help. Can you imagine a Hoosac without Tibbits Pond, without the waterfall below the stone bridge?
Please help bring Tibbits back by making a donation today. Hoosac School and all the students who have never experienced the glory of Tibbits Pond need your help. Please make a gift to the Tibbits Pond restoration fund today.
