SFC Snowshoeing Wednesdays
 
Seniors Friendship Club Wednesday Snowshoe Outings are very popular, so we have had to adapt our strategy.
Fortunately Wayne has some helpers willing to take groups so we can accommodate more people.
Gather as usual at the DRXC Chalet on Balmer Bay Road at 1:30 pm on Wednesday 27 January and we will separate into groups of five. We will go from the Chalet south on the Main Loop and cross King’s Farm lane then to the Lookouts over Kennedy Creek.
Please reply to annserdula97@vianet.ca if you plan to attend this week.
Thanks,
Ann Serdula
SFC Membership Director
