They were fed up with chasing their cows and fixing fences after people had cut them to ride snowmobiles on their land. They decided to form a club to make a trail system for snowmobilers to ride on and enjoy. They settled on the name Foote of the Mountain Sno-Travelers because most of them lived on Foote Street, named after the Foote family. This first meeting was held at Ron Devoid’s trailer. He was elected the first president by founding members Victor and Pat Bergevin, Bill and Doris Devoid, Al Corbett, Oakley and Harriet Palmer, Paul Scarborough, Laura Devoid, Moses and Margaret Cameron. Alphonse Quesnel was a local crop duster, and when he set his mind to something, he would see it through. He wanted a snowmobile trail up Robert Frost Mountain to the fire tower, so he used his plane to scout a path to the summit. Legend has it that he would fly his plane while barely clearing the tree tops and dropping markers out the window to locate the best path up the mountain. Moses Cameron was referred to as the “magnet and glue” that brought and held the club members together, including getting the next generation of volunteers that were vital to the club’s future. He and his wife Margaret held the meetings at their home for many years. Margaret held the offices of secretary and/or treasurer for decades. They also held many fundraisers to finance the proper equipment to maintain the trails. One of the most popular fundraisers was snowmobile racing at the Middlebury Airport. It was a big hit with the locals. Alfonse Quesnel presents Moses Cameron with an award from the club for his hard work and dedication in the late 1970s.
