From SFC Publicity Director for NRT - 2020 February 12
 
It’s been very cold this weekend but according to the posts on Facebook, the cross country ski and snowshoe trails are in top notch condition. Hope you are enjoying these trails groomed by wonderful volunteers, thank you. If walking is more your style, and to help you get out and about, we have received a second order of ‘ice cleats’. These provide good traction and fit most winter boots and are easily removed for driving and shopping. Ice Cleats will be available at the upcoming SFC activities, or leave a request in the SFC box at the Town Hall or email uovsfc55@gmail.com Also, don't forget that the walking the halls at Mackenzie School is open for all, free, warm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings from 6 PM to 7:30 PM.
 
It was a bit snowy but we had a nice number of people out to our soup and sandwich lunch. Thank you to all the volunteers who brought soup, sandwiches and sweets. Everything was delicious and enjoyed on a cold winter’s day. Thank you to Bob Christie and John MacDonald for the wonderful music.
 
We are taking names of people who are interested in a trip to Ottawa to see Cirque du Soleil. If we get enough interest we will arrange a bus and take in the show one day between July 1st to 5th. If you are interested in this please let us know as soon as possible at uovsfc55@gmail.com
