Wednesday Evenings on Snow Adventures

Wednesday Evenings on Snow Adventures
Every Wednesday evening – male & female participants invited to participate.

Karen Welton and Eileen Woodford lead a snowshoe or ski on Wednesday evening’s weather and conditions permitting. It is a good way to get out and enjoy winter. 630 PM for about an hour.

Location will be sent by email/posted on Facebook by noon that day (somewhere close and relatively flat). Meet at location and snowshoe or ski with the group. Headlamps helpful though not required- there will be enough people with them so that the group can see. Watch your email. Eileen has an extra set of snowshoes if you know someone who wants to try it.

If you have questions or suggestions please let Leader Eileen know @ 295-2603 or ewoodford@ns.sympatico.ca or Leader: Karen Welton @ 295-1815 karenw@staff.ednet.ns.ca
